Upper Dolpo TrekDolpo! The word conjures up visions of mysterious monasteries of snow leopards and blue sheep. A land beyond the Himalaya.

Laying in western Nepal, Dolpo is one of the most remote of Nepal’s regions. By special permit, we are able to offer these-days trek through upper and lower Dolpo .

Our route follows much of the route taken by Peter Mathiessen and George Shaller as described in "The snow Leopard” . We trek 200 miles , averaging 10 miles a day. We spend 6-8 hours a day trekking . Several layover days are planned . Porters carry a day pack with the things you need for the day.
