Introduction

An unexplored paradise, Upper Dolpo happens to be a remote and unspoiled area in the Far-Western region of Nepal. Trek to Upper Dolpo offers a great view of spectacular snow-clad mountains, green lush meadows, rich wildlife, alpine forest and many more. Upper Dolpo is a restricted area so you need to take a special permit before entering. Upper Dolpo is a culturally rich Tibetan region in Far-Western Nepal and during the course of the trek, we will visit numerous Buddhist monasteries and other historical monuments. The trek passes through high Himalayan villages, hidden valleys, turquoise Shey Phoksundo Lake, snowy high passes, the popular Shey Gomba monastery, etc. You can also witness the holy mountain called Crystal Mountain during the trek where hundreds of pilgrims visit the Upper Dolpo region just to witness this. The most people of Upper Dolpo speak Tibetan languages. Wildlife is also the key attraction of this trek where you can encounter endangered species of wild animals like Snow Leopard, Peter Mathesons, etc. The Nangda-La Pass at 5,400m is the highest point of this trek and crossing this is mandatory to get to Shey Gompa.

The trek starts with a scenic drive or flight to Nepalgunj from Kathmandu City. Then we fly to Juphal. To reach our destination, we go through several stopping points: Dunai, Kageni, Chhepka, Ringmo, Shey, Saldang, Dho and Lingdo. We have to cross three passes: Nagdalo La, the Shey La, and Jeng La during this trek. You'll fall in love with the mesmerizing beauty of the Shey Phoksundo Lake, the deepest lake of Nepal that will blow your mind with its seducing beauty along with exploring the antique Shey Gompa. A trek through Upper Dolpo Region will be etched in your memory for a lifetime.
