Trip Introduction;
Upper Dolpo Great Himalayan Trail is one of the longest trekking route situated at remote and far west Himalayan range of Nepal. Upper Dolpo was a forbidden land to trekkers until 1996. The trek offers lifetime experience for trekkers who want to explore the remote, wild, magical and mysterious region in the Himalaya - the land of Dolpo. Besides, one can also achieve an incredible experience of stepping back in time while trekking along the rugged trails through traditional mountain settlements that have a stronghold and are influenced by Pre-Buddhist, Bon-Po religion and Tibetan Buddhist Culture with largely unchanged Tibetan culture that dates back to 1200 years.

Sandwiched between the Tibetan Plateau and the Dhaulagiri Himalayan Ranges - Upper & Lower Dolpo covers the Nepal's largest National Park - Shey Phoksundo National Park. The park is home to many species of wildlife including Musk Deer, Himalayan Blue Sheep, and Snow Leopard. This trekking trip allows one explore the ancient trading routes linking Nepal and Tibet. During the trek, we will meet yak herders who sustain their lives in yak wool tents with their trading caravans and in the stunning landscapes that blend perfectly with the Trans-Himalaya.

We will spend some time exploring Ringmo village and Shey Phoksundo Lake. Our trail from there leads to Shey Gompa at 4343 meters after crossing the first challenging high alpine pass - Nagdalo La Pass at 5350 meters.
