Long out of bounds to foreign trekkers, Dolpo lures adventures with promises of untouched natural splendour, mystical cultures and rare wildlife. Dolpo, situated in Nepal's far west, was only recently opened to trekkers. This is where you find stunning Phoksundo Lake, celebrated as the Jewel of Dolpo. The people here trace their origins to Tibet, and their culture is a window of traditions as practiced on the roof of the world centuries ago. The delusive leopard is a famous denizen of Dolpo and the rare cat has acquired the status of a mere legend. Thus its not only the scenery that attracts trekkers to Dolpo, its the chance to see a corner of Nepal that very few visitors will ever experience.
The trek begins at Juphal and follows the trail to Dunai, the first camp then proceeds to Tarakot, the way up to Shering Gompa (4400m) which is the highest point of this trek. Passing through the Saldang and Shey Gompa Village, we descend to the beautiful Phoksumdo Lake, which is a part of the Shey Phoksumdo National Park.
The Trek concludes with our descent to Chepka village and then to Juphal, from where we fly back to Nepalgunj then to Kathmandu. This region of more than 3000 sq. Km, is among the most spectacular and protected area in Nepal.
