Upper Dolpo Trekking

Upper Dolpo Trekking

Upper Dolpo trekking is out-of-the-way and hidden trek destination in Nepal and is situated mid-western region of Nepal inside the Shey - Phoksundo National Park, behind Mt. Dhaulagiri and near Tibet border. Upper Dolpo region is falls within Nepal but ethnically it is associated to Tibet. Dolpo is a region embraces a number of Buddhist monasteries plus those of pre-Buddhist belief of Bon Po. The region has preserved ultimate leftovers of long-established Tibetan culture. We elevate approximately up to 5000m while trekking to Upper Dolpo region.

Before 1989 this region was restricted area for the foreigner and was detached and hidden from the outer world. Since 1989, Upper Dolpo region has been introduced as a natural compilation of passes far above the ground, exceptional fauna, and eye-catching scenery which is boosted by the ancient Tibetan cultural heritage. The trekkers who are fascinated to trek to Upper Dolpo region must take aid from trekking agencies to get the trekking permit.

This region is bordered by Tibet and Dhaulagiri from north and south respectively. Leopards, Blue sheep, Himalayan Tahr, Jackal, Himalaya black Bear, Himalayan Mouse Hare, Himalayan Weasel,  yellow-throated Marten, Musk Deer, Langur, Rhesus Monkeys and other Himalayan animals can be spotted here. Moreover, the view of Kanjiroba peak, the Dhaulagiri massif and Phoksundo Lake are the major attractions of the Upper Dolpo trekking. The famous Phoksundo Lake which is more than 1500 feet deep is of greenish blue color bordered by dense forest and snow-topped Himalayas.

Visit Nepal-Tibet Treks will help you trek in this hidden region assuring your entry permit which is renowned for serene and natural beauty but so far unknown area. The combination of perfect trans-Himalayan culture and Buddhist monuments with natural beauty makes the trek most memorable experience you would ever get.
