Inner Dolpo Trek – 27 days Highlights

  • Immersion in to remote Dolpo Region
  • Sacred revered Shey Gompa and Crystal Mountain
  • Trekking around the magical Phoksundo Lake
  • Mesmomerizing adventure encounter with 5000+ passes
  • Centuries old Monasteries and Land of Bon Buddhism

Inner Dolpo Trek is one of the most utterly remote and challenging trekking destinations, the high Tibetan valleys are sealed off from the rest of the country by mountain passes over 17,000 feet high, and its people exist in a time warp of Tibetan culture little changed in a thousand years. This is the land of rare Bon monasteries (Bon is the ancient pre-Buddhist religion of Tibet) and the region where we find remote Shey Gompa and Crystal Mountain, both so beautifully described in Peter Matthiessen’s The Snow Leopard. Parts of this trek are also featured in Himalayan Pilgrimage, by the renowned scholar David Snellgrove, and in the movie Himalaya.

This trek is high, tough, and 21 days long, following ancient trading routes to the Tibetan border. Trekking over high passes and steep valleys, through villages and monasteries that were once very powerful, we’ll reach the Kali Gandaki Valley at the border with Mustang. We make our way back to Pokhara on one of the most scenic flights in the Himalaya, taking a breath and reflecting on the beauty and power of our journey.

    The best seasons for trekking in Upper Dolpo are spring (February to late April) and autumn (late September to late November). A summer trek is also possible however, the flight from Nepalgunj to Juphal may be affected by monsoon weather.

    The altitude becomes more noticeable the higher we go, so we walk at a slow pace and take plenty of breaks to rest and acclimatize.


    When travelling in remote mountain regions, uncertainties such as weather, health problems and natural disasters require a certain amount of flexibility. While our goal is to follow the itinerary, that is not our first priority; your safety is always our first priority.

The mountains are our home and we are unwilling to sacrifice their preservation for human objectives.

    It is really difficult to head straight up to high altitude for the first time even if you follow the recommended 400m-a-day-rule. Our itinerary is planned to allow rational acclimatization and avoid altitude sickness. Please read Altitude Advice.

    Travel Insurance:

    It is strongly recommended to be sufficiently protected when you go into remote areas. You need specialized travel insurance that covers emergency evacuation, injury, lost baggage, liability and medical treatment.

We will pay a cash deposit to the helicopter operator and collect the money from you once you have been rescued. Before leaving on the expedition, make sure your policy specifically covers alpinism otherwise you may have a difficult time settling the large claim.

    Annapurna Sanctuary Trekking

    We were 4 people planned to visit Nepal and all of us checked online price and facility of services, comparatively Adventure Land Nepal found average one, then decided to trek to Annapurna Base Camp, after complete the trekking, we would be happy with our decision. Thought that we got right person, right place and right decision, because our trekking organizer was experienced more than 20 years in tourism field. After arriving Nepal and hearing his briefing, it encouraged us to do as soon as possible do this trek.

    He provided us nice package, Guide was strong and honest, he always gave an idea, what to do, how and where, these all moments were very valuable for us as we were beginners of trekking. Any way we had a lot enjoy even it was hard to walk in the hill sides. Up and down on the trails, it is really hard, but Mountain view and Nepalese lifestyle, their behave gave us plus point to forget that hardness.

    We thanks to Mr Chij, manager of Adventure Land Nepal and Guide mr. Khadka. See you again in next trip.
