    Turquoise lakes and high passes


    Home of the snow leopard and the incredible blue Phoksundo Lake, the two day journey to reach the starting point in the village Juphal is well worth the effort.

    While Lower Dolpo offers trekking through deep valleys along the wild Phoksundo River and camping on the bank of the otherworldly turquoise Phoksundo Lake, Upper Dolpo promises an adventure into a restricted area where Tibetan Buddhism and the ancient Bon religion is practiced in its original form.

    Trekking to Upper Dolpo is considered an arduous journey, and requires a full service expedition outfit. The Mountain Travel Nepal team will be excited to take you to this unique location in Nepal.
