Highlights of Upper Dolpo Trek

The Upper Dolpo Trek is a remarkable adventure in the remote region of Dolpo, located in western Nepal. This trek takes you through a pristine wilderness, untouched by modernization, and offers breathtaking landscapes, unique culture, and a glimpse into the traditional life of the Dolpo people. 

1. Remote and Pristine Wilderness: Upper Dolpo is one of the most remote and least explored regions of Nepal. It is a hidden gem that has retained its natural beauty and remains untouched by modern development. The trek takes you through dramatic landscapes, including deep gorges, high passes, turquoise lakes, and barren plateaus.

2. Shey Phoksundo Lake: The trek includes a visit to Shey Phoksundo Lake, one of the highest-altitude lakes in the world. This stunning lake is known for its crystal-clear waters that change color throughout the day, surrounded by snow-capped peaks and lush green forests. It is a mesmerizing sight that leaves trekkers in awe.

3. Unique Culture and Traditions: The Upper Dolpo region is inhabited by ethnic Tibetan communities, and the local culture and traditions are deeply rooted in Tibetan Buddhism. You can witness the distinctive Bon and Buddhist monasteries, prayer flags, and chortens (stupas) along the way. Interacting with the friendly Dolpo people gives you an insight into their traditional lifestyle and hospitality.

4. Phoksundo Waterfall: Another remarkable natural wonder in the region is the Phoksundo Waterfall. It cascades from a significant height, creating a spectacular display of water amidst the rugged terrain. The combination of the waterfall, the surrounding mountains, and the lush greenery is a sight to behold.

5. Crossing High Passes: The Upper Dolpo Trek involves crossing high passes, which offer breathtaking panoramic views of the Himalayas. The Kang La Pass (5,240 meters) and the Numala Pass (5,360 meters) are the major passes along the trek. These challenging but rewarding sections provide stunning vistas of the snow-capped peaks and surrounding landscapes. 

6. Unique Wildlife and Flora: Dolpo is known for its diverse wildlife and unique flora. The region is home to the elusive snow leopard, Himalayan blue sheep, musk deer, and various species of birds. The trek gives you a chance to spot some of these rare and endangered species in their natural habitat.

7. Authentic Dolpo Villages: The trek takes you through several traditional Dolpo villages, such as Ringmo, Saldang, and Dho Tarap. These villages are nestled in picturesque valleys and offer a glimpse into the ancient way of life of the Dolpo people. You can witness their traditional houses, and terraced fields, and experience their warm hospitality.

8. Ancient Monasteries: Upper Dolpo is dotted with ancient monasteries and gompas that hold great religious and cultural significance. The Shey Gompa, situated at the base of Crystal Mountain, is one of the oldest and most revered monasteries in the region. It houses ancient Buddhist artifacts, and murals, and offers a serene atmosphere for meditation and reflection.



The Upper Dolpo Trek takes place in a beautifully restive area of Nepal. The Upper Dolpo is only open to foreign trekkers and mountain climbers since 1989; it remains relatively untouched and thus is known for its pristine beauty and rugged charm.

Many years ago, farmers and nomads from Tibet became the only people to settle in this hidden land, which means that even today, it is one of the least habited places on earth. In fact, according to Legend, it is one of the only ‘hidden valleys‘ to be explored by Guru Rinpoche and is now seen as a refuge for devout Buddhists and those with an exceptionally pure mind.

Why Upper Dolpo Trek

During your trek to this mysterious land, you can expect to explore one of Nepal’s most adventurous trekking routes. After landing in the bustling Capital, you will take two flights to Jhuphal (Lower Dolpo) and begin your adventure with a trek to Dunai. From here, you will continue your journey for three days before reaching the stunning Phoksundo Lake and marveling at its crystal-clear waters. After some rest, you will then go on to see some of the highest and most renowned mountains in the Himalayas. However, it is not just nature that you can expect to be amazed by. This trek is packed full of culture – with many visits to infamous Gompas and remote villages peppered throughout. This trek immerses you in the ancient traditions that shroud the region.

As with all of our treks, The Upper Dolpo trek is fully customizable and can be done as either a teahouse or a camping trek. Due to the lack of exposure to high altitudes on this trek, it is not considered a strenuous trek and is suitable for trekkers for most of the year.

The Upper Dolpo Trek is a challenging and remote adventure that rewards trekkers with unparalleled natural beauty, cultural richness, and a sense of adventure. It is truly an off-the-beaten-path experience that will leave a lasting impression.

Additional Info

Upper Dolpo Trekking Permit

Firstly, you will need your Visa to Nepal, which can be issued at the Airport upon arrival. Nepal’s tourist visa is issued for 15, 30, and 90 days, costing $30, $50, and $125, respectively. It can also be given within minutes at any other entry point in Nepal.

Next, you need a special Upper Dolpo Trekking Permit to hike in the restricted region of Dolpo. The trek must be booked via a licensed company like Mystic Mountain Treks, and you must walk in a group of two people and a guide. An individual cannot issue a license. But an agency might help you get the authorization if you are a solo traveler. Besides the Dolpo permit, you also need a Shey- Phoksundo National Park license.

Lower Dolpo permit costs USD 20/per person for the first seven days. An additional USD 5 per day is needed for the extended stay. This permit is required inside Thulibheri Municipality and Shey Phoksundo Rural Municipality. Next, you need an Upper Dolpo restricted area permit. This permit is necessary to enter Dolpo Buddha, Charka Tangsong, and Shey Phoksundo Rural Municipality. This Dolpo Trek permit costs USD 500 per person for the first week and USD 50/per day after that. This permit can only be issued in the Department of Immigration, Kalikasthan, and Kathmandu. The government (immigration department) gives the restriction permit to check the uncontrolled flow of tourists in Dolpo and control the invasion of foreigners into the local’s culture.

Then, it would be best if you had Shey-Phoksundo National Park Permit. This can be published at the gate of the National Park at USD 30 per person. This money for the National Park permit goes for the conversation of the rear flora and fauna in the region.

Upper Dolpo Trek Difficulty

The northwest of Nepal, behind the Dhaulagiri range, is Nepal’s most remote area. The trail was only opened for visitors in 1989 and remained a restricted area. A month-long journey in a land without houses, internet, or electricity is not a joke. The experts have marked the Upper Dolpo trek difficulty as “Challenging.” And this is among Nepal’s most demanding and longest trekking trails. That being said, the rewards are astounding! And you must be aware of the difficulties you face during this Upper Dolpo trek.

Difficulty due to Upper Dolpo distance and duration: The Upper Dolpo trek package is 28 days long. Trekking for a month and being detached from all worldly pleasures demands considerable commitment. We will walk for 20 days, covering 250kms to 300kms around the distance. Walking more than 12-15 km in such steep mountains is demanding. You will walk 5-6 hours daily, up to 9 hours, while crossing the high passes.

Difficulty due to Upper Dolpo elevation: The biggest challenge for trekking to Upper Dolpo is its altitude. We begin the walk from Jhupa, which lies below 2000 meters, and climb to the Kang La pass elevation of 5360 meters. We will be gaining almost 500 meters every day. Once you cross Dunai, you will likely be victimized by altitude sickness (every one in three trekkers develops altitude sickness in Nepal). Therefore, you must look for symptoms like headache, body pain, vomiting, shortness of breath, etc.

Accommodation in the Upper Dolpo Region

Upper Dolpo has three kinds of accommodation depending on the season and route. The first one is hotels in Kathmandu. You will be staying in three-star hotels in Kathmandu that are pretty luxurious with all the necessary amenities. You will stay in tea houses in the lower region- small yet comfortable local lodges. The rooms only have two single beds, a mattress, pillows, and a clean white sheet. In the higher region, few clubs might be closed most of the year.

Upper Dolpo Culture

We can observe three kinds of Culture in Dolpo- Lower, Upper, and Middle Dolpo. The Hindus inhabit the lower region, while the middle area blends Hindu and Buddhist people (Bonism and Shamanism). A cluster of the Magar people speaks the typical “Kaile” language. The Upper region of Dolpo was home to the Buddhist and Bon cults. Tibetan Buddhism has driven the culture of these “Dolpo-pa”. The people speak the ‘Khaam’ or ‘Poike’ language and strictly follow their culture. Bönpo monasteries such as Shey Gompa are the foremost destination for pilgrims aiming for the circuit trek. The salt trader first used this trail, and the story was depicted in the movie called “Himalaya” by Eric Valli. During the summer, this route has been a trade route for “Yarchagompa” (caterpillar fungus). You can also be a part of the unique Festivals of Upper Dolpo. Check Cultural tours of Nepal.

What is Upper Dolpo Trek Cost?

Upper Dolpo Trek is Nepal’s most prolonged, remote, and strenuous trek. So, naturally, it is also the most expensive trek in Nepal. The Upper Dolpo Trek Cost by MyEverestTrip costs $4495. The most significant part of this cost goes for the staff who accompany you, i.e. the guide, porter, and the food. Also, it includes the domestic flight to Jhupal, Dolpo Permit Cost worth a lot, and accommodation. We might have to set camps in many parts, and all those trekking gears also cost a lot. In addition to this $4495 Cost of the Dolpo Trek package, you will need about $500 of your own.

Well, it is not cheap. But we can say that it’s worth it. After all, this Upper Dolpo Trek will be an utterly rejuvenating journey for you.

How can we prevent altitude sickness in Upper Dolpo Trek, Nepal?

Per MyEverestTrek Upper Dolpo trek Itinerary, we stop at Phoksundo, Shey Gompa, and Dho Tarap for acclimatization. These acclimatization days will prevent you from the risk of altitude sickness. Also, you must drink enough water and keep yourself hydrated. Also, eat nutritional foods, stroll, and take a lot of rest. However, if such symptoms get prominent, walking down to a lower altitude is wise. Helicopter rescue is needed if the case gets worst. Thus, it’s recommended to have Travel Insurance before you book your trek to Nepal. The insurance should cover all the rescues up to 6000 meters above sea level.

Is Upper Dolpo To Jomsom trek Possible?

Yes, instead of visiting Dolpo and getting back to Dunai, the trekkers can also get to Jomsom from Dolpo. Dolpo and Mustang lie pretty apart. Can’t we join Jomsom from Dolpo in about seven days? The trail to Mustang separates from Dho Tarap, the highest settlement in the world.

The itinerary for Upper Dolpo to Jomsom trek is the same for the 12th day until we enjoy a rest day in Shey Gompa. Then, we take a slightly different route from Day 13.

    FAQs for Trekking in Nepal

    If you’re planning to go trekking in Nepal, here are some frequently asked questions to help you prepare for your adventure.

    When is the best time to go trekking in Nepal?

    The best time to go trekking in Nepal is between September to November and March to May, when the weather is clear, and the sky is blue. The monsoon season from June to August is the least ideal time due to heavy rainfall and the possibility of landslides.

    Is trekking in Nepal difficult?

    The level of difficulty varies depending on which trek you choose, but trekking in Nepal can be physically demanding and mentally challenging. It’s essential to do proper training and select a route that matches your skill level. Trekking at higher altitudes may lead to altitude sickness, so it’s crucial to acclimatize properly and take precautions.

    How safe is trekking in Nepal?

    Trekking in Nepal is a safe adventure if you take proper precautions and follow safety guidelines. Some treks are safe to do without a guide, but it’s recommended to have experienced guides, especially for high-altitude treks above 4,000 meters. Health hazards like altitude and weather changes can make trekking dangerous, but following safety procedures can minimize the risks.

    Can I trek in Nepal without a guide?

    It’s possible to trek in Nepal without a guide, but it’s recommended to hire a guide or porter, especially if you are a first-time trekker. The guide can help you navigate the trails, communicate with locals, and assist you with any emergencies that may arise during your trek. They provide valuable insights into local culture, customs, and even help carry your belongings.
