We start our trek from Juphal, after two small flights to Nepalgunj on first day and to Jumla on second day. The route goes through high and remote alpine area and passes and finally come to beautiful Shey Phoksundo Lake (3600m). This trek crosses more than eleven mountain passes, seven of them higher than 5,000 m. Thus this is a difficult route compensated however by the beauty of the countryside and kindness of the people. This trekking tour is undoubtly one of the best that can be carried out in the whole of the Himalayas. From here we will trek via Numala and Bagala pass and get to Upper Dolpo, Do Tarap, the beautiful village of this region. Trek towards to Charkha, probably the most beautiful village of high altitude. We cross the Sangda La, the highest pass of this trek then we will trek further to reach Jomsom.
