Upper Dolpo trek

Trip Overview

Upper Dolpo Trek is an adventurous trekking destination in remote areas of mid-western Nepal. Only after 1989 the dolpo district was opened to outside trekkers. It is the largest district of Nepal in terms of area comprising the geographical topography quite similar to Tibetan region. Snow leopards, blue sheep and the mules are the faunas found in this region. She-Phoksundo Lake lies in this region which is the deepest lake in the highest altitude of the world. Most of the hills are almost bare or with little vegetation. This cultural and remote area trekking offers the dynamic weather conditions with steep lowlands and high lands make trekking in this region strenuous and enduring as it is also the least developed part of Nepal. Regardless, the natural beauty of scenic landscapes, Himalayas and cultural importance makes this Upper Dolpo region truly adventurous and fascinating.

We start our Upper Dolpo adventurous expedition after taking the domestic flight to Nepalgunj and another short flight to Juphal at an altitude of 2475m. Then we head towards Chhepka and trek towards Palam passing the beautiful forest and small Reechi village. The very next day after steep trekking for about 4 hours we can view the highest waterfall of Nepal known as Phoksundo waterfall or the sunlight waterfall. People following the Tibetan Buddhism and Bonpo region are the inhabitants of this small Ringmo village. We walk through the trails of the Oscar nominated CARAVAN movie to arrive at salla ghari from where the spectacular view of Kanjiwora Himal, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range is seen. After going through strenuous uphills and downhills we reach Shey Gompa, a a very small village with couple of houses and monasteries. This Shey Gompa was built in 11th century beneath the crystal peak so it holds cultural importance to local inhabitants. Passing the similar adventurous trekking days we trek towards Juphal and fly back to Nepalgunj and then Kathmandu.

Trekking in Upper Dolpo is long, very strenuous and requires the high level of physical fitness with previous trekking experience. So, all the adventure lovers and passionate trekkers with positive attitude with an ability to walk approximately 7-8 hours a day can grab this Upper Dolpo trek as an ultimate adventure in Nepal.
