Trip Route


Upper Dolpo Trek is one of the most interesting destinations of Nepal. Trekking in Dolpa is an opportunity to walk through stunning landscape, ancient and isolated villages untouched by so-called modernity, Buddhist monasteries and turquoise lakes. It contains the deepest lake in Nepal, lake phoksundo, which also happens to be the deepest lake of high altitudes in the world. Dolpa is a restricted area for tourists, which contributed to the preservation of the unique culture of Dolpa.Some of the attractions of this route are Dho Tarap, a human settlement at the highest altitude in the world, Shey Gumpa, religiously the most important Gumba in Nepal, and lake Phoksundo, the deepest lake of high altitude in the World. Dolpa is rich in flora and fauna.Upper Dolapa is one of the few remaining sources of Yarsa Gumba, an exotic half-plant, half-animal that is considered a powerful aphrodisiac. The route begins by meandering through pine and cedar forest with views of the massive Dhaualgiri range in the background. The entrance to Dolpo lies beyond the Jangla Bhanjyang Pass, (4500m). At the head of the valley lay snow-capped peaks and the desolate Tibetan plateau beyond.The Upper Dolpa trek begins from Ranjha airport a small airport on top of the town of Juphal and safely ends at Juphal itself.
