Mystical land Dolpa where centuries old Buddhist and Bonpo traditions; interwoven with shamanistic influences and it is still an important part of daily life. Our journey starts flight to Juphal from Kathmandu. Upper Dolpo Trek via Phoksundo Lake. This trek crosses many mountain passes, some of them higher than 5,000 m. Thus this is a difficult route the shining turquoise blue water Lake Ringmo, Shey Gompa, Namgung, Saldang, Dho Tarap Villages and people you meet during this trek will leave an unforgettable memory. The landscapes here are even more desolate than on the Lower Dolpa and the villages even more isolated and pure. We fly back to Kathmandu from Juphal.

The months of April to September are good time to UpperDolpo Trek. Before April all high passes are blocked by snow and after September it start to snow. Still trek is possible till end of October with heavy-duty equipment. And after November is completely not possible to trek in upper Dolpo due to high risk of snowing. Upper Dolpa region is full of rare herbs and wild animals. Upper Dolpo Trek a lucky one sight blue sheep, Ghoral, Cheetah and even snow Leopard and many other species of animals. Dolpa is home of rare plants like Cordyceps Sinensis, Nardostachys, Dactylorhiza Hatagirea etc.
