Trip Overview

Upper Dolpo Trek is situated in the mid-western part of Nepal, which is border to Tibet on the northern side. It is culturally developed, as much as Tibet, and is one of the most remote regions of Nepal.

Upper Dolpo Trek route passes many gigantic mountain ranges – Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and Kanjiroba to name a few, and also passes through Lower Dolpo. It is at one time was a small kingdom in its own right. The wild remoteness, stunning mountain sceneries, and the innocent friendliness of the local people always fascinate us. Only a few hundred people live here and are among the world’s highest inhabitants, which is at the altitude of 4300m and above.

Peter Matthiessen’s “The Snow Leopard” and David Snellgrove’s “Himalayan Pilgrimage” have contributed to the mystique and attraction of Dolpo. Both writers visited Shey Gompa, to the north of the Phoksundo Lake, inner Dolpo. The main goal of most trekkers is to visit Shey Gompa but this Dolpo trek will take you even further into this mysterious land.
