Upper Dolpo to Jomsom Trekking let you experience remote trekking destination following the trail of most popular Annapurna Circuit trekking destination. Dolpo is one of the highest inhabited plateaus in the world. It is an area of roughly 2100 square miles inside Nepal’s northwestern frontier with Tibet, encompassing some thirty villages and monasteries at altitudes of eleven to fifteen thousand feet. Dolpo is in Nepal but, its people – in race, religion and culture, are Tibetan Buddhists descended from nomadic tribes who settled in this area around the tenth century and their religion and culture has survived as one of the best preserved examples of Tibetan Buddhism in the world. In fact, people living in certain pockets of the region practice Bon Po, an animistic religion that pre-dates Buddhism and which, some believe, is actually the precursor to Tibetan Buddhism as we know it. The lower Dolpo is home to the endangered musk deer which may be glimpsed along the trails and to a great variety of birds. Though rarely seen the blue sheep, the Himalayan black bear, snow leopard and the Himalayan wolf are also found in Dolpo.
We start our Upper Dolpo to Jomsom Trekking 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.
