Lower Dolpo Trek


Dolpo! The word conjures up visions of mysterious monasteries of snow leopards and blue sheep. A land beyond the Himalaya. Laying in western Nepal, Dolpo is one of the most remote of Nepal’s regions. By special permit, we are able to offer these-days trek through upper and lower Dolpo.

Our route follows much of the route taken by Peter Mathiessen and George Shaller as described in (The snow Leopard”. We trek 200 miles, averaging 10 miles a day. We spend 6-8 hours a day trekking. Several layover days are planned. Porters carry a day pack with the things you need for the day. Participants should be in good shape. We are at high elevation much of the time on this trip. Five passes, over 16,500 feet, are crossed. Steep climbs and descents are made.
