Culturally Tibetan region in West Nepal, Upper Dolpo Trek is remote yet spectacular Himalayan expanse with Dhaulagiri Himal and Churen Himal on the east and south and Jumla district to the west.
This epic Upper Dolpo Trek starts at Juphal village; heads to Dunai and passes through the Suligad River gorge to Phoksundo Lake and cross our first 5000-meter pass leading to sacred Shey Gompa and the ‘Crystal Mountain’. Another pass later, in the village of Saldang, we have free days to explore the surrounding Tibetan-style villages, busy with the Autumn harvest. From Saldang we head into ever more remote regions of Dolpo, Khoma, Shimen & Tinkyu in the fantastic Panzang valley.
The trails connecting these remote villages and high passes are some of the most culturally interesting and spectacular routes in Dolpo, and the inhabitants still trade with Tibet along the old salt routes.
Academy award-nominated film “Himalaya” was shot in this region.
