Highlights

Upper Dolpo trek lies hidden behind the Dhaulagiri Range in Nepal’s mid-western region where snow-fed streams runoff high mountains but few are perennial. Lower (Outer) Dolpo is characterized by a semi-arid topography with deep gullies and narrow valleys while Upper (Inner) Dolpo comprises a vast arid region of rolling semi-desert highlands, a continuation of the topography of the Tibetan plateau.

Dolpo Region is most easily reached by a flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj, in the humid south-west close to the Indian border, then to Dolpo’s airport at Juphal. A three days trek up the Phoksundo Khola through a mix of forests and arid landscapes lead to Ringmo and the beautiful Phoksundo Lake. This is Nepal’s deepest lake at 650m. It is 4,8km long and 1,8km, wide. Inner Dolpo Shey gompa trek traverses the cliff face along the side of the lake and then leads up the Phoksundo Valley gently at first then more steeply. The trail follows its narrow ravine to higher ridges and beautiful campsite to Shey Gompa a Tibetan influence settlement and prosperous Saldang village, a two kilometers ribbon Bön village of five settlements that lies on the trade route to Tibet.
