The Upper Dolpo trek “The Caravan trek” 24 days is an extension of the lower Doplo trek to the Tibetan Plateau and has the same wild, windswept, open spaces characteristic of Tibet. The region was declared a National Park in 1984, making it Nepal’s largest National Park and the only one encompassing a Trans-Himalayan eco-system. The national Park Status has helped preserve not only the culture but also the wildlife Children of the Himalayas…

Upper Dolpo trek offers the best scenery on the north-western most side of Nepal. Adding charm to the region are its generally open-hearted and friendly people. The trek can begin in Jumla (over an hours flight from Kathmandu) or from the nearer Nepalgunj.Rara is a good destination point for trekking in the west. The trail is very much “off the beaten path” and affords glimpses of culture and scenery very different from those in therest of the country. The centerpiece of the park is the biggest lake of Nepal. Along mountain paths and a series of picturesque villages, one reaches the magnificent banks of Rara lake. The park includes Trans- Himalayan valley with high ridges covered with forest and alpine pastures. We offer following itinerary for Upper Dolpo Rara Lake Trekking.

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.
