Upper Dolpo Trek is one of Nepal’s most rewarding treks, lies on the mid-western into the hidden valley between Tibet and the Mount Dhaulagiri of Nepal. This trek is perfect for those of us who are willing to manage a two-week or more holiday to explore the authentic mountain lifestyle and trance Himalayan landscape in the remote part of the world.
The Upper Dolpo is undoubtedly one of the best trekking destinations in the Himalayas of Nepal due to the beauty of culture and nature. Despite its astonishing natural and cultural beauty, the Dolpo region has remained off the radar of most of us given its remote location and lack of communications and transportation. This trekking route used to have camped for previous years but now most of this region has a few tea houses to spend a night and eat the food while trekking. Tents are no longer required unless you don’t want them. This area is one of the restricted areas of the Nepal trekking route. Dolpo is characterized by a semi-arid topography for deep narrow hidden valleys while in upper Dolpo, this trek offers vast arid rolling semi-desert highlands to walk through Where tourist flow is controlled by the government to minimize the environmental and cultural influences.
The Upper Dolpo trek offers rewarding trekking through iconic local villages of the mountain peoples' lush forests and into the high alpine pastures and glaciers at the foot of Kanchenjunga with some of the world’s highest and greatest mountain vistas. Along the way, you’ll also walk through or pass through religious Buddhist and Hindu villages whose culture includes Limbu, Rai, Sherpa, Gurung, and Tibetan origins.
Keep in mind, the trekking trail is a bit narrow and not very smooth as Everest or Annapurna’s trails, and the teahouses in the Upper Dolpo region have very simple basic meals because this route is not as crowded as other treks in Nepal. We will learn something new and different but a unique experience in this small piece of heaven. Experience the real Nepal in all its diversity of cultures and landscapes from day one to the last day of the trek.
Our guided Upper Dolpo itinerary starts from the hustling and bustling city of Kathmandu with a thespian short flight to Jhuphal and takes a step through ancient local villages of the Rai, Limbu, Gurung, and Chhetri, trekking routes and where we get the opportunity to spend some of our time with people in local villages in the mountain. Along the way, we will alsocross a few high alpine tranquil beauty lakes including Phoksundo, and cross the ancient Trans Himalayan Trade route.
We would welcome you to join us on this amazing trekking experience where you will be part of these majestic Himalayan vistas, prime wildlife habitat, ancient forests, and into the heart of traditional cultures and communities of the Himalayan or remotest part of Nepal.
