Upper Dolpo Trekking

Upper Dolpo Trekking

Trip Overview

Upper Dolpo Trekking is the less touristic trekking trail in western Nepal.

In relation to Lower Dolpa, very few people enter this region which is upper section of Tse-Phoksundo National park. Special permit must be obtained to trek in this region. Virgin landscape, Tibetan plateau, dry & cold surrounding are the main attraction of this trek. The northern part is particular, a home for endangered animal like Musk Deer, Snow Leopard, Blue Sheep etc. The area is well known for Himalayan herbs like Yarshagumba (half animal & half plant). The area was a popular trade route between India & Tibet until few years back. A very famous film called Caravan was featured meticulously captured the trading taken place in this region. The inner & upper part of Dolpa is fully influenced by Tibetan culture however, southern part is influenced with Hindu culture & tradition. During November to March, the residents of Ringmo village head over to lower elevations with their animals for grazing. Particularly, this area has an attraction of wild & pristine landscape, which is unlike with other parts of Nepal
