Upper Dolpo Trekking

Upper Dolpo TrekkingUpper Dolpo lies West North in Nepal, but it is different. Contrary to what one imagines is commonly Nepal. Opened only in 1993 for tourism, it is still a little-known gems of Tibetan Buddhism. People call you a friendly "Tashi Delek" to monasteries like eagles' nests on rock walls, prayer flags fluttering noisily on each passes.
The beginning of this Upper Dolpo journey from the beautiful old Newar city of Bhaktapur near Kathmandu. Afterwards we continue to the southwest of Nepal on the border with India: Nepalgunj is the center of a major rice-growing area and is considered an important transfer station on the way into the remote western Nepal. From here, you can start with a flight to Juphal. Like a bird, you can admire the mountains and valleys from the air.
There you start your trekking tour around the magical Dolpo. Repeatedly along wild rushing rivers, and occasionally this crossing, past and ancient chorten Mani walls leads the trek over three 5,000-m-passes. In the idyllic villages Dolpos invite wrapped in red robes monks in their often centuries-old monasteries. Some people will be the charm Dolpos soon succumbed.
After 18 wonderful days of trekking the round is over. They fly via Nepalgunj finally back to Kathmandu, where you can end the trip before flying home yet.
