DOLPO-SHEY GOMPA-DO & TARAP 26 DAYS
Start from Jumla & end in Juphal


The northern part of Dolpo is usually called Inner Dolpo and has always had an aura of mysticism. The high valleys of Dolpo are some of the most remarkable in the Himalayas with sweeping views stretching to the arid Tibetan plateau. Trekking here offers a real adventure, in a remote, unspoiled part of Nepal that has remained largely untracked and unexplored. Our trek begins with a flight to Jumla via Nepalgunj. The first part of the trek is not difficult and provides delightful walking before joining ancient trade routes and the steep ascent to cross the Kagmara (5115 m), our entrance to upper Dolpo. The scenery begins to change with the hills becoming shades of red, brown and gray. Eventually you can hear the prayer flag fluttering at the top of the Pass, and the view opens up dramatically looking east towards the snow peaks of the Kanjiroba Himal and the five peaks of Dhaulagiri. We soon walk through the pleasant green pastures to the beautiful Phoksundo (Ringmo) lake. The scenery is outstanding with the deep blue waters of the lake contrasting of Do Tarap. We cross over two high passes, the Bag La (51812m) and the Numa La (5148m). From the Numa La descend into the Tarap valley to the village of Dho Tarap. Our adventurous journey finally comes to end at Juphal with an easy two days walk following the Bheri River to the small airstrip at Juphal and we fly back to Kathmandu via Nepalgunj.
