UPPER DOLPA TREK: AN ESCAPADE OF TWENTY EIGHT DAYS TO TAKE YOU ANOTHER PART OF WORLD.
Upper Dolpa Trek is an unusual venture to endure different adventure which is both stimulating and spiritually calming. Dolpa region is deemed to be one of the most remote regions of Nepal and contains an abundance of Himalayan peaks, hidden lands, and secluded rural communities. It is one of the few places in the world which is not still hit by globalization, modernity, and development, making this region rare and unique. The biggest national park of Shey Phoksundo spreads over an area of 3555 sq.km and is a haven to blue sheep, musk deer, ghoral, thar, and the beautiful snow leopards.
The extraordinary trek of Upper Dolpa led to the masterpiece “Snow Leopards” by Peter Mathieson, a bestselling spiritual book which describes the remoteness as well as spiritual bliss. The region embraces the deepest lake in Nepal, Phoksundo Lake. The lake is surrounded by jutting crags and is full of captivating turquoise fresh water which can touch the very deep inside of every human heart seeking peace and tranquility. While traveling the ancient monasteries and panoramic mountains of this region, you will face native locals living a semi-nomadic lifestyle based on agriculture and animal husbandry. Due to the severe environment of this region, people residing here have trouble in physical infrastructures but yet they are rich in spiritual wealth.
The people residing Upper Dolpo region are only a few hundred in number and they’re among the world’s highest inhabitants. The settlements in Upper Dolpa are scaled in 4,300m and above. Although the people of Upper Dolpa are poor, this realm is abundant in natural resources. It has an ample amount of green lush meadows, subalpine and alpine forest, and snow-covered alluring mountains which will cheer you up.
Dolpa proffers you with nature in its raw form. The entire district depends on yaks, mules, and horses for transportation. Roads subsist only a few kilometers in lower Dolpa. Upper Dolpa is yet to see a wheel rolling on its land because of its remoteness. So, trekking is the only alternative if you want to travel to Upper Dolpa.
