Upper & Lower Dolpo trek

22 Days of Trekking
Maximum Elevation 5090 metres (16,700 feet)

Dolpo is a remote region of Nepal that has been bypassed by development and, until recently, by tourism. Although a few anthropologists and geographers had explored the region, the entire district was closed to trekkers until 1989 when the southern part of Dolpo was opened to organised trekking groups. This trek traverses the interesting trade route from Jumla to Dunai, then visits Phoksumdo Lake and the Tibetan style inner Dolpo region of Tarap before flying back from Dunai to Nepalgunj.

Peter Matthiesen'sThe Snow Leopard and Snellgrove'sHimalayan Pilgrimage have contributed to the mystique and attraction of Dolpo. Both writers visited Shey Gompa to the north of Phoksumdo Lake. Shey Gompa is not particularly interesting, and there is a $700 permit fee levied by the Nepal government, butit's possible to include a visit to Shey in this trek.
