Upper Dolpo Trekking

Upper Dolpo Trekking :Upper Dolpo, encircled by immense peaks including the Dhaulagiri is a challenging but pleasant journey into Nepal's most out-of-the-way region which has unexpectedly become a main destination for trekkers and mountain lovers. This trans- Himalayan region of mid- West Nepal takes account of the freezing settlement of legendary Shey Monastery beyond Phoksundo Lake, the renowned region of snow leopard, blue sheep, and the yak herders awaits you.
Located in the western north of Nepal near Tibet border, the region is still within Nepal but culturally attached to Tibet. Dolpo is a region of the minority of Buddhist monasteries as well as those of pre-Buddhist religion of Bon Po. The region has conserved one of the last leftovers of traditional Tibetan culture.
Phoksundo Lake is the best part of the entire Upper Dolpo trek which is more than 1500 feet deep. Its water is of greenish blue color surrounded by dense forest and snow-capped Himalayas. The path passes through a cedar forest and finally to Palam, a winter settlement used by the people of Ringmo village. The houses here are almost buried in the sandy soil. From here our route heads up to open country, at an altitude of around 3,350m. From the ridge one can see the distant views of Phoksundo Lake and a spectacular 300m high waterfall, one of the highest in Nepal. Likewise, a large fraction of Dolpo has been set sideways as Shey Phoksundo National Park at 3,555 square kilometer. It has been home for blue sheep, Himalayan Black bear, leopards, wolves and the exceptional snow leopards.

Encounter Nepal will lend a hand to trek in this far western region which is famous for tranquil and natural outer space but yet unknown area. It has herbal land, perfect trans-Himalayan culture, Buddhist monuments; unique human culture and trekking around the upper Dolpo is a memorable trip in every visitor's life.
