Trekking towards Dolpo region is one of the remote, underdeveloped areas and most striking corner of the high altitude Himalaya that bound to the east and south by great Himalaya such as Dhaulagiri and Churen Himal range to the west by the Jumla district. Jumla, on the banks of the Tila Khola, is the entrance to the wild northwest and one of the highest rice-growing areas in the world.  Where most of local inhabitants cultivated local red rice is tastier than the white rice.  This trek will begin from Jumla with 3 hours of walk towards Dunai then the trail will follow a southeasterly direction along the villages of Gothichaur, Chaurikot, and Hurikot. Where we can observe tranquil verdant areas scatter with shining irrigation canals, rivers, high Himalayan peaks and lots of grand high altitude scenery. During the summer season, you can explore the most exotic scenic views of the Blossoming of the flora, buttercups, orchids, forget-me-tons, geraniums, mints, gentians.  Then leading towards the North-East, it passes the Kagmara-La (5,115m) to the village of Pungmo and Ringmo towards culminating at the Shey Phoksundo Lake and trekkers are not allowed to go north beyond the Lake. Then our return journey will be bringing the trekkers south along the villages of Sherpa and Aankhe to Dunai for the flight back to Nepalgunj then back to Kathmandu

Summer (June - August) and Winter (December - February). Though Summer collects heavy monsoon rainfall it is very much clear to trek around Mustang, Dolpo and Nar- Phu valley since they are rain shadow areas.  Tibet is much more favorable for Tibet trek. Everest,  Langtang and Annapurna are always comfortable to trek even in winter season.

Trekking in Nepal for Dolpo Jumla Trek does not require past experience, though we have challenging route in Everest compared to Annapurna our itinerary suggests to walk comfortable distances. Trekking in Himalayas always takes us to challenging altitudes and rocky routes, demands proper rest time and acclimatization to sustain their strength. We always have both listed properly in our itinerary. However certain training like Running, Skipping and other workout will definitely help you in roots. 

  • Acclimatization:

Altitude sickness is a significant risk when trekking on any trails above about 2,500m. However good health, proper care and drinking plenty of water will definitely help you to prevent from altitude sickness. Every trekkers needs to be familiar with the heights so, for this we have life saving acclimatization days during the trek, peak climbing and expedition.
