Overview of Upper Dolpo Trek


Off the Beaten path, unexplored trails and discoveries are what attracts any trekker to the Upper Dolpo Trek in Nepal! Located behind the Dhaulagiri Range and connected to the Tibetan Plateau. The Upper Dolpo trek is filled with adventure, rocky highlands and spectacular views of the Nepali and Tibetan Himalayan ranges. Lakes, mountains, traditional villages, and ancient monasteries fill this trek with experience. From the Phoksudo Lake to the Shey Gompa the trail is extraordinary, and views of the mid-western plateaus and valleys of Nepal make the Upper Dolpo Trek also known as a mystical alternative trekking route in Nepal!

The region of the Upper Dolpo Trekking is highly filled with Tibetan influences. Many of the villages still practice the ancient old Bon traditions. These villages are full of old traditions and culture. Our Peregrine Treks & Expedition’s guide will guide you into understanding the locality of the region. Also famous for its pure honey many honey hunters venture in the Dolpo region. It might be that we encounter these daredevils who live by gathering “Himalayan gold” from the highlands. In another part of the Upper Dolpa Trek, we head to the Phoksudo Lake. Also known as the deepest lake in Nepal. Following the Phoksudo River that fills its surroundings with life gives you an amazing natural trail through valleys, streams, and highlands.

Accommodations

You will stay in Samsara Resort or Hotel Arts Kathmandu or similar 3-star hotel in Thamel, during your trek. A solo traveler needs to share the room with same-gender another traveler. If you need a single supplement, you will have to pay an additional cost of about USD 200. During the trek, most of your accommodations contain attached bathrooms, while some of the teahouses may not have and you may have to share the washing and toilet facilities in that case. Kathmandu and the trekking regions in lower elevation will have sing room facilities, but it will be hard to find them at higher elevations.

 

Meals

You will enjoy typical Nepalese food and international cuisine (Tibetan, Continental, India, etc.) as well during your trek. Be sure that breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided by the lodges or teahouses as per their available menu. You may not be served breakfast somewhere during your trek. You may get opportunities for welcome and farewell dinners for guests.
