The Dolpo region is the most remote and least developed in the far western reaches of Nepal. The entire region was closed to trekkers until 1989.
Situated between the Tibetan plateau and the Dhaulagiri mountain range, this region is geographically like a southern extension of Tibet which lies within Nepal. In 1984, the Dolpo area was declared Nepal’s largest national park and conservation area. It is also in the rain shadow region of the two giants to the south making this a good all year round trek.
The Upper Dolpo trek starts from Jhupal village and continues for 20 days, with splendid views of the high Himalaya from the high 5,400 meter Numala pass and on to Phoksundo Lake and Ringmo village that lie within the Phoksundo National Park.
Ringmo is the highlight of the trek where the beauty of the deep blue waters of Phoksundo Lake is surrounded by the snow peaks of the Kanjiroba Himalayan range. There is time to visit the nearby isolated village of Ringmo and its monastery. Following the ancient Trans Himalayan Trade Route, our trek continues into the amazing region of Crystal Mountain at Shey Gomba, before heading back to Jhuphal and Jomsom and the flight back to Pokhara and onto Kathmandu.
