Overview

Perched in the far- flung lands of Western Nepal, Upper Dolpo happens to be the least developed district in Nepal. Aloof from the outer world till the year 1989, the popularity of Upper Dolpo region skyrocketed with the release of the Oscar nominated movie Caravan directed by famed Eric Valli. Dolpo region is among the few whereabouts in the world where ancient Shamanism and Bon Po religions are in practice. Dolpo is also known for its eccentric death ritual of sky burial, in which the body of the dead is considered empty vessel that the soul has left and thus is disposed by chopping the body into pieces, which are then benevolently offered to eagles.

The uncommon Upper Dolpo Trek at ‘Alpine Zone Treks’ is a 28 day package that commences with an hour of pleasant flight to Nepalgunj from where a connecting flight is taken to reach Juphal connecting flight. Disembarking at Juphal, the astounding wilderness trekking is set into motion as the trail advances to Dunai along the riverbed of Bheri River.  
  
Walking the surreal landscapes of Shey Phoksundo National Park, the largest National Park of Nepal rich in Himalayan Wildlife like Himalayan Goat Thar, deer and a ferocious beast like snow leopard, the trekking trail stretches past the isolated villages of Chepka, Rinje and Ringmo to eventually arrive at the turquoise blue Shey Phoksundo Lake. Afterwards, the path follows Phoksundo Khola and crosses Phoksundo Bhanjyang to make it to yet another alluring destination of Shey Gompa located above the confluence of Kangjunala and Yeju Nala Rivers. Upper Dolpo Trek progresses further through pretty hamlets of Namuna Gaon, Saldang and Sibu to Jengla Phedi. Later, we traverse Tokyo Gaon, Do Tarap and Khani Gaon to Dunai, where the gratifying trekking concludes as we take a flight back to Kathmandu.

Upper Dolpo Region exists in the rain shadow of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Mountain Ranges thus making it suitable for trekking even during monsoon season. Upper Dolpo Trek is strenuous one, so it would be better to have some prior trekking experience.Team up for the rarely trodden trekking into the pristine lands of Dolpo and get acquainted with the whole different image of Nepal.
