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.

“Glorious Himalaya gave us a competitive package and excellent service right from the first contact over email. Ganesh, who runs the company is very punctual, proficient, welcoming and has an excellent team. His expertise and guidance on the EBC trek supported us to finalize this grand trek in a remarkably short time.

The guide (Buddhi), porters and all the combinations throughout our trek were great. Buddhi was very humble and even played football with my young boys. He made sure we are happy and comfortable. The hotels and lodges arranged by Ganesh/Buddhi throughout the whole trek (Namche Bazar, Tengboche, Lukla) were really comfortable, well placed, neat and tidy with the delicacy of meals and service.

I would highly recommend Glorious Himalaya for trekking in Nepal.”

“Glorious Himalaya Trek organized our 16 days Annapurna Circuit Trek on March 2017 and they truly deserved excellently. Our local guide Ram was smiling face, well equipped and experienced who was born in mountain region. And our porters were helpful, honest and enough to carry our stuffs during the trek. We are lucky to find one of the best tour operators in Kathmandu among thousand companies.”

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.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.

  • When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?

    We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
