Overview

Trip highlights

Upper Dolpo Trek was open to the trekkers after 1989. Situated between beautiful Dhaulagiri mountain ranges and Tibetan plateau Upper Dolpo attracts the visitor with its unique natural, cultural and historical heritages. The trip begins with arrival at Kathmandu and sightseeing of world heritage sites for couple of days. The trekkers begin the real adventure after a flight to Nepalgunj from Kathmandu and then a connecting flight to Juphal, district headquarters of Dolpa. The trek to mystic Dolpo region starts from Juphal and leads to magnificent mountain passes and mesmerizing Phoksundo Lake, the deepest lake in Nepal. The trails above Phoksundo Lake offer fantastic adventure to take the trekkers to Shey Gompa-an 11th century monastery with archeological, historical and religious importance. From Shey Gompa trekkers follow the ancient salt trading route connecting Tibet and Dolpo region.
Upper Dolpo Region Trek came to limelight after Peter Matthiessen visited the region in 1973 along with a friend to study on study about Himalayan Blue Sheep and Snow Leopard. This popularity of Dolpo region further increased with the release of Oscar-nominated movie Caravan, based on hardships, culture, religion and lifestyle of people of Dolpo.
