Upper Dolpo Phoksundo lake Trek


Upper Dolpo is a high-altitude culturally Tibetan region in the western Himalaya of Nepal.  The inhabitants of Dolpo region are mainly Tibetans; the region is rich in ethnic Tibetan culture and arts. Upper Dolpo trekking initiates at the north-west region behind the Dhaulagiri massif, towards the Tibetan plateau. There is abundance of Himalayan wildlife. We can find Musk Deer, Himalayan Blue Sheep and rare Snow Leopard. The deepest lake of Nepal Shey Phoksundo also lies here. This lake stands at 3900 m above sea level. It is 4.8 km long, 1.5 km wide and has a depth of 145 m. This lake is also known as “Rigmo” locally.

The route is most demanding as we traverse heights in excess of 5350 m and some of the most remote territory in Nepal. As we trek through the heart of Dolpo we get to see a variety of both scenery and people. From Magar villages with lush green paddy fields surrounded by dense jungles in the south of Dhaulagiri to Bhotia fortress hamlets and Gompas (monasteries).

Undoubtedly, Dolpo Trek caters some of Dolpo’s most intriguing highlights. The highlight of Dolpo natural paradise like Phoksundo Lake, unique cultural encounters as often as we traverse through villages of different ethical tribes and religious devotees. Near Phoksundo lake some of the oldest and most important monasteries like Shey Gompa are exciting trek highlights. Also the pain that every trekker would love to endure while crossing 5000m+ passes like Nangdala and Shey La lifetime experiences of Dolpo Trek.”
