The Upper Dolpo Trek takes you into some of the most remote and untouched areas of Nepal. This trek is quite challenging but rewards you with sights like the turquoise blue Shey Phoksundo lake, over 800-year old monasteries, and a rugged landscape that is second to none.
With views of peaks like Kanjiroba, Kagmara, Crystal mountain to cheer you on, and fast-flowing streams to sing match you step for step, this strenuous journey at times will feel effortless. You will be witnessing barren landscapes that stretch ahead for miles as well as settlements with only a handful of houses.
While the cascading rolling hills and the towering rocky mountains are undoubtedly the main draws, the cultural significance isn’t far behind. From Shey Gompa, Namgung Gompa, Yangjer Gumba to lines of chortens and prayer flags that dot this trip, you are bound to feel spiritually transported.
