Overview

Nepal offers unlimited trekking trails usual as well as off the beaten path. The Upper Dolpo Trek falls under the mystical alternative trekking route in Nepal. Peregrine offers this amazing trekking in the remote Nepal. Upper Dolpo Trek is behind the Dhaulagiri Range in the Mid-Western region of Nepal. This Trek is very much half desert highlands which are connecting to the landscape of the Tibetan Plateau.

Upper Dolpo trek starts from the flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj which is in flat land and close to Indian border. Further, from Nepalgunj, the flight takes you to Juphal from where your trekking starts. In about three days of time,  you will reach Phoksudo Lake trekking along the Phoksundo River. The lake is the deepest lake of Nepal. The trail passes by the cliff on the side of the lake taking you to the Phoksudo Valley. The trail mostly is steeply and follows the conservative ravine to the higher ridges.

The Shey Gompa is very ancient and traditional Tibetan influenced village which still follows the Bon rituals.The trail passes by the Jeng Phedi towards the green pastured Do Tarap Valley set around mountains. Ten villages and unlimited monasteries in Chaiba and Bon Po as well as Do villages are the major settlement of the region where Barley is the major crop. The trekking then follows towards the juniper, wild rose, and pastured trekking route. Once you have reached the campsites then the trek descends towards gorges and the path would be narrow for a while then widening to Khanigaon.

Upper Dolpo Trekking route enters into the spectacular forests towards Tarakot the old forest town passing by terraced fields and gorges.Then the pine forests and gorges will pass left behind and take uphill towards Jupahal from where the flight will take you to Nepalgunj subsequently to Kathmandu.
