Upper Dolpo Trek (18 Days)

Tour Duration:

The Upper Dolpo Trekking program from Multi Adventure takes to the remote regions of Dolpa district in western Nepal. Dolpa is untouched by signs of modernity – lacking even the basic infrastructure. There are no motorable roads for miles and miles of terrain. The barren and sometimes rocky trails are preferred for adventurous trekking. Lying inside Shey-Phoksundo National park, the habitation of this region is sparse. But a brighter side of this trek is that it offers a complete sense of serenity, isolation, and quietness.

Geographically, the trekking region is this program lies somewhere between the western lake of Rara and the easter hunting reserve of Dhorpatan. The trails bordered by Dhaulagiri and Churen Peaks are not frequented by travelers. In the north lies the expansive plateau of Tibet. The people here share much of their culture with the Tibetan ones, which is why trekkers often mistake this region to be a Tibet. In addition, the barren and windswept landscape resembles closely that of Tibet – validating this perception.

On this trek, you will see the closely knit culture of the people, see the traditions they practice – all in a landscape that seems exotic. This 3,500 square kilometers of unspoiled area was opened for trekking in the late eighties. The magical beauty of Dolpo instills in you a sense of isolated beauty. And since this is categorized under “Restricted Trekking”, you will need special permits to travel in this region. Multi Adventure will take care of the paperwork while you can focus on the trek itself.

You will need a very good level of stamina to go on this trek. It is best visited in monsoon and also in the summer when the skies are clear, offering better chances of seeing close-up views of the peaks. Avoid late autumn and winter as snowfall will make some passes impassable. It is a beautiful trek with lots of high-altitude passes, isolated hamlets, expansive valleys, majestic mountains, and beautiful people. You will travel through ancient monasteries, time-worn villages, intricate nature, and challenging terrains, and to top it all off, you will be staying at the shores of the famous Lake Phoksundo.
