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.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.
