HIGHLIGHTS
  • Hike in an isolated and less touristy region of Nepal
  • Visit Phoksundo Lake, the deepest lake in Nepal
  • Visit world heritage sites in Kathmandu city
  • Experience thrilling mountain flights
Beyond the almighty Himalayans lies the isolated land, Dolpo, with its own unique geography, culture and ecosystem. This region was not open to outsiders until the 1990s, meaning that the beauty of this area is still fresh and not affected by the outer world. Situated between the Tibetan plateau and Dhaulagiri range, it is a mixture of Tibetan culture and Nepalese culture.

Join us for a once in a lifetime trek to this astounding region. The visitor to this region will be confronted with mesmerizing views of the gigantic mountain peaks of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Kanjirowa mountain ranges. Similarly, the trek travels via different Himalayan passes where you can enjoy the beauty of Phoksundo Lake, the deepest lake in Nepal. You may also get to see beautiful and rare animals like the snow leopard.

This region will surely inspire you as it has so many others. To some, the area may already be familiar: the Oscar-nominated movie, The Caravan, was filmed in the Dolpo region, and the books “The Snow Leopard” by Peter Matthiessen and “Himalayan Pilgrimage” by David Snellgrove also contributed a lot to expose the Dolpo to the outer world.

Though this trek can be physically challenging, the region is no less than a Himalayan heaven.

“We successfully completed EBC Trek last October with the help of Ganesh and His Team.
The thrilling flight to Lukla was an adventure in itself.
The trek was challenging but rewarding in every way.
Standing on the lap of Everest was the most exciting and unique experience we've ever had.

Everything was well organized and the service could not have been better.
We can't ask for more but only to thank them for our successful trip.
Thanks to our Guide, Porters, and the entire team for helping us complete this trek.
Our guide Ram was very professional, well informed and explained to us very well.
Accommodation and meals were very appreciated.

We carried wonderful memories flying back home and still miss the mountains!!!
See you on our more future trips to Nepal. I would definitely recommend this once in a lifetime trek to Everyone. Thank you! Ganesh and his team for organizing this trip”

“This is the second time that I have trekked with Glorious Himalaya Trekking (last year I trekked the Api Saipal Himal Trek with my partner) and again their service was excellent. As per usual, Ganesh arranged for airport transfer to and from the hotel. Ganesh also acted as my guide on the trek, and both he and Ram (my porter) were very attentive to my needs. Their knowledge of the region provided for a trouble-free trek. Finally, the dinner provided by Ganesh on the last night was a nice opportunity to re-live the trek.

We will be using Glorious Himalaya Trekking again and I would recommend them to anyone.

Thank you,
Scott.”
