Upper Dolpo Circuit Trek – Juphal To Juphal Culinary N Wellness Adventure 23 days

  • Shared tour
  • Family friendly
  • Eco Responsible

The ethereal part of Western Nepal, known as Dolpo, is cut off from the outside world by high passes, and only a few trekkers will ever visit this place. Our exceptional trek leaders will bring you into this remote, rare world of the old Bon and Buddhist area.

We will follow ancient trails to the remote high altitude villages where the people still live as their ancestors did as barley farmers and semi-nomadic yak herders wearing traditional handspun wool robes and boots.

This tough, rugged, and remote trek brings many rewards, including the astounding beauty of Phoksundo Lake, and visits many monasteries that are several centuries old.

Trekking is a wellness activity as it involves detoxing through perspiration, calming the mind, and eating healthy.

Our trekking chefs use superfood as ingredients to give our trekkers much-needed nourishment after a rigorous day of hiking. Our meals help to strengthen the immune system.
