Upper Dolpo Trekking

Dolpo is the least developed and most rural region of Nepal. Until 1989 the complete district was barred for trekkers and then the southern side of Dolpo was opened for various expeditions for trekkers. The book of Peter Mathesons   comprises detail information about Dolpo.

Dolpo is located between Tibetan plateau and Dhauligiri Himalayan range. From 1984 Dolpo has the country’s biggest national park consisting of numerous animals of wild life including Musk Deer, Himalayan Blue Sheep and the endangered Snow Leopard. Mainly Tibetan mother tongue people live in Dolpo.  The people of Dolpo are traders and exchange good via barter system and during the summer the locals take their yak onto the Tibetan plateau for grazing.  

Nepali movie named The Caravan was based on the life present at Dolpo and it became a huge success as well as it was nominated for the Oscar Award. Before 1989 only few trekkers had explored the area. Dr. Herbert Tychy in 1953 and John Tyson in the beginning of 1960s had explored the area. Dolpo is considered as one of the most elegant trekking area in the rural area of Nepal even though really small numbers of people have been here.

Our trek gets underway from Jhupal village and encounter as well as passes many adventures; places, people, villages, forests, valleys and then we arrive at Phoksundo Lake at Ringmo village which is cited in the Phoksundo National Park. 

We relish the two nights her and enjoy around the Phoksundo lake and the summits of Kanjirowa Himalayan range. We also visit the close by village of Ringmo and it Monastery. We then resume our journey and via ancient Trans Himalayan Trade route, we get retrieve to Jhupal.  Then through an alternative trail we have the opportunity to traverse the outstanding Wild West of the Dolpo region.
