of 22 reviews
Generic placeholder image


Upper Dolpa Trek is one of the hidden treasures of  Nepal. This hidden treasure lies on the western side of Nepal. Shy Phoskondo lake is another major highlight of this region. Dolpo is still a stronghold of the pre-Buddhist, Bon Po religion. This is a high mountain region of fortified villages, ‘dzongs’, and many high passes. We pass through many ancient monasteries and highland villages and wonderful natural scenery as we make our way to Phoksundo Lake and the fabled Shey Gompa. Everest View trek is another trek on this region to do for the option.

We explore alpine meadows and exotic villages in Upper Dolpo Trek which has kept Bhoriya culture alive. We also get to experience Thakkali culture in Mustang. The most interesting factor of this trek is that we get to witness the cultural difference of the people of different regions, had centuries ago. Dolpo the high mountainous settlement holds the nomads that migrated to the region in the ancient period. People of Mustang also called Lopas also migrated from Tibet almost during the same time. Still, the contrast between the people of these two regions in the past and in recent times is so huge in terms of civilization; it is an interesting discovery.  Rara Lake Trek

Upper Dolpo Trek is also called “beyul” or refuge has been inhabited by Tibetan nomads, called Drokpas, for over a thousand years. It has remained isolated, due to its remote location and has only been open for trekking and tourism since 1989. The Buddhist saint, Guru Rimpoche, who spread Tibetan Buddhism throughout the Himalayas, discovered this hidden land over 1700 years ago. As you trek to Upper Dolpo, you pass through some of the highest settlements in the world. People here live even above 4000 meters amazing. Annapurna Circuit Trek
