Upper Dolpo Trek

27 Days
100% 5 star based on - 33 reviews from TripAdvisor.

Dolpo Region is one of the most remote regions in Nepal. The entire district was closed for foreigners until 1989 when southern part of Dolpo was opened to organized groups of trekkers.  Few anthropologies and geographers had explored Dolpo Regions even before 1989, though.  Dolpo Region is located between Dhalagiri Himalayan Range and Tibetan Plateau and it is also considered as the highest inhabited land of Dolpo.

The Caravan or the Himalaya – the English subtitled movie on Dolpo was a big success and had been nominated for Oscar Award in the best foreign language film category. Before 1989, the southern region as opened for foreign trekkers and very little trekkers had visited this area. The first mountaineering expedition by Dr. Herbert Tichy in 1953 based  in Kaigon and the other visit by John Tyson in the early 60’s. Dolpo is one of the most attractive regions for trekking and very rarely visited because of the remote and lack of accessibility.

 In this Upper Dolpo Trek – 27 Days, we begin our trek from Jhupal village after taking flight from Nepaljung to Juphal. We start this adventure coming across scenic landscapes, local people, picturesque villages and valleys, pine forests, rhododendron, high trek passes, massif mountain ranges, and cross over 5400m at Numa-La Pass till we reach Phoksundo National Park including Phoksundo Lake and Ringmo Village.
During the two nights at Ringmmo, we enjoy the beauty of the deep blue water of the Phoksundo Lake and the snow-capped peaks of Kangirow Himalayan range. You will also have time to visit an isolated village of Ringmo and its monastery. This long 28 days journey carries on the wonderful region of crystal Mountain at Shey Gompa, following the antique Trans Himalayan Trade Route and return to Jhuphal. The trek has been made professionally and one with good physical stamina can make it done walking 4-6 hours per day in average.
