"Lying in close proximity with Tibet, Upper Dolpo is genuinely a Tibet outside Tibet. Upper Dolpo Trek with Access Nepal is a fascinating trekking holiday that surpasses even the best holiday destinations in the world. Yes, we truly mean Upper Dolpo Trek is world’s one of the best places to be during the holidays."
Upper Dolpo Trek with Access Nepal begins at Juphal. We fly to Juphal from Nepalgunj. As the trek begins the initial part of it winds along the trail beside Thuli Bheri River and lush tropical forest. Gradually as we gain elevation, the vegetation turns into low alpine woodland as we trek closer to stunningly beautiful Phoksundo Lake. The first major highlight of Upper Dolpo Trek, Phoksundo Lake is truly a magical destination. Crystal clear water mass occupying huge area and ringed by firs and pine trees with the backdrop of Mt. Kanjiroba to the north and Ringmo village (Bon Village) to the east, Phoksundo Lake caters the enchanting view and tremendously peaceful sensation. The floral and faunal biodiversity if Phoksundo National Park can be observed around Phoksundo Lake.
Beyond Phoksundo Lake we enter the restricted region of Dolpo. The forested regions around the trekking trail start to fade away and we chase the trail on arid valleys towards Shey. Now the real adventure begins. Crossing over the passes of 5000m+ we enter from one significant place of Dolpo to another. Crossing the Kang La Pass 5300m we get into Shey Gompa . Shey Gompa is one of the biggest monasteries of Dolpo. Similarly conquering Shey La Pass 5000m we arrive to Namgung, which also holds another sacred monastery of the region, Namrung Gompa. The last pass of the Upper Dolpo Trek, Jeng La 5100m comes in before we get into Dho Tarap- the ancient trading town of the region. During this part of the Upper Dolpo Trek, sighting of Yak caravan as shown in Eric Valli’s dream project Himalayan Caravan is definitely one of the picturesque views.
Fully organized trek with expert guides and porters, Upper Dolpo Trek with Access Nepal allows an opportunity for thorough exploration of Nepal’s preserved and restricted region Dolpo. We have tailored this holiday in such a way that trekkers get see as much as treasures Dolpo holds during the Upper Doplo Trek.

Moreover, an opportunity to witness the Hindu Death ritual at Aryaghat Pashupatinath is an offbeat cultural experience. After the exploration of Pashupatinath we will walk along the busy streets of Kathmandu to Boudhanath. A large domed shaped Buddhist stupa, Boudhanath holds huge religious significance among the Tibetan Buddhists of Nepal. A major shrine on ancient Indo-China trade route Boudhanath offered blessings to traders and scholars for safe journey through the high Himalayan passes to Tibet. Saffron robed monks circumambulating Boudhanath, colorful prayer flags touching the skyline from the dome pinnacle to the base of large monument and the and outlets selling Tibetan souvenirs makes this place a true Tibet outside Tibet.
