Trip Information

Upper Dolpo Trekking is a high-altitude culturally Tibetan region in the upper part of the Dolpa District of western Nepal, bordered in the north by the Tibet Autonomous Region of China. Trekking in Dolpo Part of the region lies in Shey Phoksundo National Park. The sparse, agro-pastoral population, known as Dolpa in standard Tibetan and Dhol-wa in the local dialect, is connected to the rest of Nepal via Jufal airport, which can be reached in three days by horse. There are no precise population numbers for the region, with estimates including less than 5,000 and 18,000 ft.

The Dolpa are generally adherents of Bön, a religion whose origins predate Buddhism but whose modern form is officially accepted as the fifth school of Tibetan Buddhism. Upper Dolpo The remote region has preserved its Tibetan culture in relatively pure form, making it attractive to Westerners.

The Dolpa trekking starts at Juphal and follows the track to Dunai, then continues to Tarakot, Dho Trap, Saldang Village, shey Gompa and Phoksundo Lake, which is a piece of the Shey Phoksundo National Park.
