Trip Overview

Lower Dolpa Circuit Trek 

This route avoidds the high permit fees (US$500 each) for the Upper Dolpa area and cuts from Phoksundo lake and Ringmo east to Dho Tarap, one of the most intresting places in Dolpo with both Bon and Buddhist monasteries.

The trek can be done in either direction bettwen Ringmo and Dho Tarap vai the Baga la (5169). However trekkers need to be vigilant concering the altitude. The long desent to the Juphal airfield is along the Tarap Khola valley. Another exit from Ringmo and Phoksundo heads over the kagmara la pass to Jumla. East of Dho Trapa a route follows the High and Wild Tek to Jomsom.

High and Wild Trek

East of Dho Trapa, this remote and exciting route runs over three 5000m passes to Jomsom. The Jhyarkoi la is tha most demanding. The Mo la leading to Chharka is more gentle, while the Jungben la to has a very steep desent. From there are still more ups and downs before reaching Jomsom.

Upper Dolpa Circut Trek

This is fabulous trekking by any standards. It is not easy or comfortable, being nearly all camping. The route includes the trek to Ringmo and Phoksundo lakes.

From here heading to Shey across the kang la (5350m) is a formiddle choice, especially if snow is threatend. The direct route continues across the Sela la (5095) to saldang. Much more inviting and drama-filled is the trail north around fantastic gorges via samling bon monastery, Bhijer and the Nengla pass (5368) to salding (A wild route goes from Bhijer to Rara via the Mugu area). From Salding an interesting side trip wanders north to the mystical yangtsher Monastery-Heading south from salding the route crosses the easier Jyanta la pass (5220m) to Dho Trapa. From here it’s either back to Juphal vai the Trapa kola valley or to jomsom via Chharka (4320m) on the high and wild trek described above.

Outline Itinerary

Only those with weeks of time to walk in can avoid the planes. From kathmandu the flight to Nepalganj takes just over 1hrs. In Nepalganj, it is necessary to stay in town. The choice of hotel is limited unless you want to start your adventure with free-loading bedbugs. These days things have drastically improved her, with a copule of better places.

 

It’s not that far from Juphal to Dunai, but remember you have just landed at (2475m). Before rushing of there will be time for tea as the bags and food loads are sorted.

From Juphal the trail heads southest, at first high the deep valley of the Thulo Bheri, then kala gaonda and then rupgad. Dunai (2140) is quite a large centre with a district hospital.

The path climbs steadily for most of the day, with some exposed rock-cut sections high above the buddling turquoise water of the dancing Suli Gadkhola. En route some sre Drokpa or Mokundo  scarecrow-like wooden images, helping to ward off evil spirists.

Heading north the first stop is the Shey Phoksundo Ntinol Park Check post, where you can recive your permit for Rs.3000 each.Waterfalls capture the attention of trekkers as the river bed narrows; mixed forest and green vegetation cling to the banks.

 

The trail today are quite exposed but not enough to deter most people. Overall it’s a pleasant day with bags of anticipation.

The trekking begins along the river bank on a log-supported path and then passes through a rockey a couple of times and climbs over a bluff on a rock-cut stage.

This is a shorter day, but there is an altitude gain of 650m to be negotiated beside one of the most dramatic waterfalls in the country.

Leaving Rechi of reaching the canyon narrowes with drama to match the expectations of reaching the fabled lake at Rindmo. En route is Sanduwa (Samjam) hotel at 2960m-a four-bed room costs Rs.1000.

Heading along the lakeside is dramatic; it was well portrayed in the flim Himalaya (Caravan). A visit to the Tshowa (meaning lakeside) Bon monastery should be compulsory, such is the rarity of the ancient Tibetan, earliest Bon culture these days,

The trail climbs high in a staggeringly vertiginous fashion on exposed and dramatic path. it was once a terrifying for both man and beast. It takes about 3-4hrs one way to reach the northwest valley of the Phosundo Khola-the route to Shey Gompa. However, doing the first hour or so gives ample rewards for a day walk

The return trek  is the same as the inward journey and takes 3 days. Those with an extra day or two could explore the Pungma valley and the village of the same name. The path climbs steeply to this village, and beyond a route crosses the kagmara la to Jumla.
