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.

Detailed Itinerary

  • Day 1 : Kathmandu to Juphal (2 days) (overnight)

    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.

     

  • Day 2 : Juphal to Dunai (3-4hrs)(overnight)

    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.

  • Day 3 : Dunai to Shyanta or Chhepka (6-7hrs) (overnight)

    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.

     

  • Day 4 : Chhekpa to Rechi (5-6hrs) (overnight)

    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.

  • Day 5 : Rechi to Ringmo (4-5hrs)

    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.

  • Day 6 : Ringmo to Free day hike (2-hrs) (overnight at Ringmo)

    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

  • Day 7 : Ringmo to Juphal (3 days) (overnight)

    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.

Detailed Itinerary

  • Day 1 : Kathamandu to Dhunche ( 7hrs ) by jeep overnight

    Through more forest is Sing Gompa ( 3305m )with a small monastery , cheese factory and so called Red Panda reserve.

    The superb ridge walk continues , it’s truly breath taking. There are said to be 108 lakes in the vicinity of Gosainkunda, so it’s a big job to visit them all. Gosainkunda lake is where Shiva came to cool his burning throat.

    Gosainkunda Shiva Temple

    Not must picturesque of temples, this concrete structure is surprisingly devoid of much intrest. Asorry looking Hanuman watches the shrine with his parason too high to stop the snow landing on his head various tridents and bells are stuck close by

    Four lodges currently offer shelther and a little warmth here.

  • Day 4 : Gosainkunda to Tharepati ( 6-7 hrs ) overnight

    Tharepati

    The trails climbs to Tharepati ( 3690m) also spelt Tharepati with views over Helambu from Tharepati it’s a superb,relaxing walk along the wide trail and airy ridge with views to east and west. On a clear day these could extend from Ganesh to Gauri Shankar.

  • Day 1 : Kathmandu to Pokhara (overnight) (By flight)
  • Day 2 : Pokhara to Vlleri (overnight) (by jeep)

    Valleri is a good place to have a linch break before the knee exercising drop on hundreds of stone steps to sunny Tirkhedhunga (1540m). It’s almost too warm. Too hot, to cold, some people are never satisfied. Buses, jeeps or taxis run to Pokhara from Nayapul.

  • Day 3 : Vleeri to Ghorepani (overnight)

    Before Departing Ghorepani most make the sunrise. The panorama includes churen himal, Dhaulagiri, the Nilgiris, Fang (Baraha Shikar) Annapurna south and the kali Gandaki George.

  • Day 4 : Gorepani to Poon Hill to Tada pani (overnight)

    This short old favorite appeals to a wide audience. The mountain views are wonderful. The forest enduring and the village life absorbing. It was the most popular group trek in the 1980s  and acquired the title of “The poon hill expedition” among trek leaders. The authors have summitted poon hill at least fifteen times each without oxygen (view points).

  • Day 5 : Tadapani to Choomrong (overnight)

    A pleasant amble leads to chhomrong (2170m), the last permanently inhabited village before the sanctuary.

  • Day 6 : Homrong to Doban

    The incredibly sheer and imposing rocky but tresses of Machhapuchhre tower above. Just after down the cold air of the canyon is bracing. That’s why most trekkers choose lodges.

  • Day 7 : Doban to Derurali (overnight)

    The trail climbs to Deurali (3230 m) and Bagar (3300m), with the sensational rock walls of Machhapuchure mesmerizing all who pass. Don’t be surprised if thick cold, clammy cloud shrouds Machhapuchure base camp (3700m).

    Machhauchure or Fishtail is one of the most iconic mountains of Nepal (6999m), Its scared summit remains unviolated. In 1957 an expedition led by Jimmy Reberts. Only Nouce, Coz and wylie where able to continue the attempt, with Sherpas in support.

    The scale of the massive southface of Annapurna. I can be fully appreciated from the base camp are.

Detailed Itinerary

  • Day 1 : Kathmandu to Charikot to Singati (overnight)(by jeep )(8 hrs)

    Although it’s perfectly possible to make it all the way to Chetchhet from Kathmandu by local direct bus or private jeep, it makes some sense to spend or night in chaikot or Dolakha and visit the Bhimsen Temple.

    From charikot/ Dolakha the road goes through the hamlets of ksawati and kalikasthan close  to the suspa Monastery or detour to the west. At least this joygul ride cuts out a lot of hot and sweaty Walking. Not content with letting singati be the roadhead the locals have pushed the road onwards to lamabazar. The drop-off area little un-nerving. Just don’t tell your insurance company! Mostly down to charikot (1980m)

  • Day 2 : Singati to Simigon (ovenight)

    Not content with letting singati be the roadhead, the locals have passed the road onwards to lama bazzar. The drop-off are a little un-nerving, just don’t tell your insurance company.

  • Day 3 : Simigaon to Dongang (overnight)

    On the first day of trekking, it’s always best ot rush of with the exuberance of youth (unless you are one).

    The cleverly engineered trail is a delight the unrevels from chetchhet to simigaon (2100m). Simi Gompa and the adjacent lodges probably have the best overall view of Gauri Shankar on the whole trek.

  • Day 4 : Dongang to Beding (overnight)

    It’s a exciting hike but care needs to be taken to watch those altitude gremlins. The height gain from Dongang to BEding is well in excess of recommended limits (300m perday). The forest is left behind and the high meadows take overs.

  • Day 5 : Beding ro Na (overnight)

    The day is full of drama and anticipation as the trail skirts the dramatic fluted peaks of chekigo. Once the view opens out with Na ahead, the peaks are Tsoboje, Bamongo and Kang Nachuyo.

  • Day 6 : Na to Rolpa Lake (ovenight)

    It’s a long haul down today but the loss of laltitude makes for an energetic descent. Leaving Na the desert is easy to Beding . Lower down Kyalche has that spectacular sunset view of checkigo, it’s a fitting conclusion to along day.

  • Day 7 : Rolpa lake to Pigpherago (overnight)

    This option is the major highlight of Rolwaling. It is likely to get windy in the afternoon. So, be sure to wrap up well and take water and a packed lunch.

    From Na, the trail climbs gently to a bridge over the Trakarding Glacier stream (1 hrs to here) and up to Samma Kharka. It then climbs between two moraines. The final push ascends the boulder littered moaraine to Tsho-Rolpa Lake (4540m ).

  • Day 8 : Pigpherago to Tashi Lapcha (overnight)

    Ahead are the tumbling glaciers that cascade down the west face of Pigpherago (6729m)

  • Day 9 : Tashi lapche to Thame (overnight)
  • Day 10 : Thame to Monjo (overnight)

    The morning can be sent exploring Thame monastery Returning towards Namche as far as Teskiyo, The route is the same.

  • Day 11 : Monjo to Lukla (overnight)

    It’s a bit of a holiday today and mostly downhill. Downhill the big hill is jorsale and soon enough follow Monjo, Bengkar, Toktok and phakding. Namche to lukla can be done in about shrs. If you have a plane to catch.

The route passes a hydro plant but power is aluxury that is area has yet to keep functioning . The Hong Sanghu monastery is glimpsed though the tree. Syala(3500) has a stunning view of Ngadi Chuli. Some trekkers overnight in shyala and then climb to Pungyen Gompa. The next day en route to Samagaon. That’s fine providing you don’t have a heavy pack and it saves backtracking all the way from Samagaon.The trail ascends and descends frequently, passing the side path to Pungyen monastery well before Samagaon (3520). The village has various chorten and mani walls it’s house have two storeys with the ground floor given ob=ver to animals.

  • Day 11 : Samagaon - Samdo ( 4 hrs)

    Before leaving Samagaon monestry is worth a visit even if locked, for the views of manaslu and it’s glaciers. The trail from Samagaon to samdo cross “relatively flat” land.

    Although at this elevation even the smallest hillock seems en effort. The views of manaslu behind get ever better west of the trail is the hidden Birendra Tal, a glacial lake where ice Blocks tumble in thunderous displays. The lake can be accessed either directly from Samagaon or by diverting briefly from the manaslu base camp trail. The eastern cliffs of Samdo peak (6335) It’s Tibetan name is pang phuchi) are beautiful serene an surreal. At ground level, The odd marmot Scurries about , peeping from a cosy hole- cosier than may lodge . The trail climbs to Samdo (3875m).

  • Day 12 : Samdo - Dharamsala (4-5hrs)

    The only way to acctack it, but to plod slowly. Methodically and steadily, keeping your head down on this walk is inevitable, but be sure to gaze around, the mesmerising scenery will – well mesmerise! leaving Samdo,the trail dropsto cross the budhi gandaki to the farmer trading settlement of larkya bazar. A steep, deceptive climb ensues, Pang puchi grows ever larger and further up there,are fabulous views of manaslu north and manaslu.

  • Day 13 : Dharmasala - Bhimthang ( 6-10hrs)

    It’s is 3am at Dharmasala no one has slept a wink – except the lodge staff perhaps, breakfast passes unnoticed in the fog of high altitude waking.

Detailed Itinerary

    Lukla: After such a literally breathtaking flight, it is pretty normal to feel slightly fuzzy in the head on arrival in lukla (2880 m).  Most people take tea, a second breakfast or lunch before setting out.

  • Day 2 : Phakding to Namche (overnight) (6-8 hrs) Phakding- Monjo- Jorsal-Namche

Detailed Itinerary

  • Day 1 : Kathmandu to Bisisahar by jeep (ovenight) (5-6 days)

    A bombed-out Bus service operates between Besisahar and Bahulbhule when sufficient customers have waited patiently. If you want a jeep further along the new dirt road, you need to arrange it in Besisahar, because they do not normally pick-up trekkers in the route.

  • Day 2 : Besisahar to Dharapani to Danakyu (by jeep) (ovenight) (5 hrs)

    Continuing on from kharte the trail is pleasant but not taxing to Dharpani (1960m). The forbidding canyon to the northeast of Dharapani leads to Binthang on the Manasalu Trek. Also here is Thonje, with small monastery housing an impressive image of Sakaymuni Buddha.

  • Day 3 : Danakya to Chame to Dhukure Pokhari (by jeep) (overnight) (5 hrs)

    Continuing to climb, the route passes through lowest Danakyu and finally upper Danakyu (2300m, all with enticing lodgings. There are good views east towards Manasau North and the ramparts of Phungi Himal. Just 30 min further in is Chame (2670m) the regional headquarter.

    Today the altitude may intrude as the route climbs through more intoxicating pipe-secented forest. Only the bubbling flow turquoise climb too fast the effect of altitude will Kick in today.

  • Day 4 : Dhukure Pokhari to pisang, Humde, Manang (by jeep) (ovenight) (5 hrs)

    Dhukure Pokhari (3185m) is a pleasant tea shop before reaching lower pisang village (3200m)

  • Day 5 : Manang to Churi Latar (overnight) (4 hrs)

    From Braka to Manang is a short hike, passing chortens and craggy outcrops.

    Soon is the welcome kani of Manang (3540m). It’s ancient stone and wood house, shelter about 200m peoples, all year around. There are cozy lodges, unlike when Herzg’s. Annapurna Climbing group came in 1950. Then they could hardly find shelter or procure any food. Manang has a clinic for trekkers (and locals) operated by the Himalayan Rescue Association (HRA) during the trekking season. They give an informative talk about altitude sickness each day at 3:00 pm. The ACAP tourist center is also worth a visit.

  • Day 6 : Churi lattar to Phedi (overnight)(4 hrs)

    It’s a relatively leisurely stroall, but the toll of high altitude begins to bite before Thorang Phedi. Don’t oversleep. In high season bed space in pedhi occasionaly becomes critical there’s always the floor,the courtyards .

    High still is churi lattar (4200m), sitting serenely below Chulu west, with sensational sunsets.

  • Day 7 : Phedi- Thorang pass- Muktinath (overnight) (8 hrs)

    This is the big day. A part from the toilets and weather, the usual topic of conservation revolves around the department time the next morning. Unless you have experienced high altitude before, nothing can prepare you for its effects. And after all that all and trouble descent. But it’s this why we all come to the Himalayas?

  • Day 8 : Muktinath to Jomson (By jeep) (overnight) (2 hrs)

    This day is relaxing, down from muktinath through dry countryside to the former trading route of the wind west kali Gandaki valley. Jeeps to Jomson depart at intervals. Hiring a whole jeep is possible (well, as ‘hole’as a Neplease jeep can be!) The new jeep road keeps its distance from the trails.

  • Day 9 : Jomson to Pokhara (by flight)

    Pokhara back to Kathmandu
