Upper Dolpo is a remote region located in the far west of Nepal. The region is protected as the Shey Phoksundo National Park. The whole Trekking region of Upper Dolpo lies in the north of the Dhaulagiri Sanctuary that borders the Tibetan plateau. Most of the inhabitants of this region still rely on trading Tibetan salt as it is nearly impossible to grow anything in this region.

Upper Dolpo Trekking - Best Off Beaten Trekking in Nepal

Our Upper Dolpo Trekking truly starts from Dunai and on the fifth day of our trek you reach the famous Shey Phoksundo Lake. The alpine fresh water lake is religiously significant to the Tibetan culture as a number of stupas and a Gompa surround the lake. From Phoksundo, we trek to Shey Gompa via Kang-La pass. In Shey Gompa, you can visit the famous Crystal Monastery, a place of religious significance to people of Dolpo.

Your trek comes to a stop in Juphal after 21 days of trekking in the Upper Dolpo Valley. From Juphal you will board a 35 minute scenic flight to Nepalgunj and catch another flight to Kathmandu. We will celebrate our success story over dinner in Nepalese Restuarent and Upper Dolop Trekking Comes to End.
