Upper Dolpo Trekking

Trip Overview

Upper Dolpo is a remote area which is situated to the north of Dhaulagiri mountain range. This isolated region offers unique natural beauty to another level that one can experience in their lifetime. The vast region of Karnali is naturally and culturally rich. The region is blessed with ample natural resources. It has an abundance of green lush meadows, subalpine and alpine forest and snow-covered mountain. The wilderness of this region is also the home to snow leopard, blue sheep, mountain musk deer and many more.

Yaks, mules and horses are the major means of transportation of this region where road exists only a few kilometres in lower Dolpo. So to reach there trekking is only the way to reach there.

Visited on 2nd September, 2019

Our family (9 pax) came for vacation to Nepal on 7th of August 2004. The Tour Experience was excellent! Pakka. The service company (Raaika) provided to us was more than we expected, they provided us transport facilities complimentary to few places, which we decided to visit on our arrival only. Their welcome on our arrival at the airport made us feel really comfortable. Through out our trip we were taken care of. Stay in Pokhara, walk to lakeside market, the early morning Mountain Flight in Kathmandu and visit to Bhaktapur all was exciting and nice.
