Upper Dolpo Trek is the enchanting mystic experience amalgamated with Himalayan nature. The journey takes the trekkers far away up to the Tibetan plateaus covering the hilly and Himalayan belt of Nepal. Nepal Hiking Trek takes you for this magnificent trekking which has the astounding views of the mountains including the clearer view of Dhaulagiri range.

Upon starting the Upper Dolpa trek from the Juphal after the flight from Nepalgunj, the journey is greeted by gleeful innocent locals. The journey is similar to Lower Dolpo Trek however the extending period means more villages and more adventure. The Shey Gompa Monastery, Himalayan animals and birds inside Nepal’s largest national park the Shey Phoksundo National Park and the deepest lake of Nepal Phoksundo are the major highlights of the journey. The people of the Dolpo follow Buddhism and Bon Po. Therefore their acts and lifestyles are similar to those of the traditional Tibetan people. It is believed that Guru Rimpoche himself created this tranquil valley during troubled times of Buddhists. You can observe the varieties of animals like Blue sheep, Himalayan Thar, leopards and many more in the region. The trail passes along the Phoksundo River originated from the Lake itself. Therefore, you can have every chance to witness the civilization on banks of the river as well. The journey takes you to alpine and scarce tree lines passing by the villages Ringmo and Palam. The gigantic waterfalls and landscapes continue to inspire you to trek further even if your body gets tired. Witness the authentic Himalayan lifestyle of the Nepalese people by trekking in the Dolpo region of Nepal.
