Trekking in the Upper Dolpo

Centuries-old monasteries. Stunning turquoise lakes. Shy snow leopards. This is Nepal’s Upper Dolpo region.

Get off the tourist trail and trek in Nepal’s remote west. A lack of tourist infrastructure means that the going isn’t always easy. Camping is a must, and the rewards are great.

Meet locals who keep terrace farms. Explore Nepal’s largest national park, Shey Phoksundo, home of snow leopards and other rare animals. 

Take your time on a multi-day trek, to really connect with this area that few outsiders ever see. Luxury is in the location and the experience here. And the lack of tourist infrastructure creates the Upper Dolpo experience. Few foreigners venture up here and there’s nowhere more authentic in the country.
