The great journey where every trail and every village tells a story

During this great crossing Dolpo-Mustang-Naar Phu-Saribung we discover desert and wild valleys, high passes, isolated villages, splendid landscapes, peeled lands, meetings with Dolpo-Pa inhabitants of Dolpo, a region that still lives at the rhythm of seasons and caravans.

The Upper Dolpo near the Tibetan border is turned to Tibet whose religion, culture and language it shares. The inhabitants have faces that reflect the harshness of life on these highlands where the influence of Tibet is very marked. This trek requires to be autonomous because there are practically no lodges. Some steps can be long. There are approximately 10 nights at more than 4,000 m and 8 passes at more than 5,000 m.

It’s an adventure trek where you have to be rustic. A good physical condition is necessary. We sleep in the tent, we wash in the rivers and our meals consist essentially of the traditional dish, the dalbhat. The geographical boundary between Dolpo and Upper Dolpo is approximately a line from Dho to Chharka Both. North of this line is Haut Dolpo.
