The Dolpo region is situated between the Tibetan plateau and the Dhaulagiri range. The entire district was closed to foreign trekkers until 1989 when the Southern part of Dolpo was opened for trekkers. Upper Dolpo Trek begins with a flight to Nepalgunj and then to Juphal from Kathmandu. We then begin our trek in the Dolpo region which is famous for its exquisite landscape, unique culture and interesting lifestyle of the locals. On our 28 Days trek we pass through traditional villages and meet fascinating locals. We also cross a few high Himalayan passes and enjoy the tranquil beauty of Phoksundo Lake. From Shey Gompa, we follow the ancient Trans Himalayan Trade route and return back to Jhuphal.
