Dolpo and Mustang Trek (29 Days)

  • Photo Gallery

A unique Nepal trek in the rugged regions of Dolpo and Mustang exploring two long forbidden lands. It’s a magnificent trek, with diverse scenery and culture. It would surely be one of the classic treks of Nepal if it wasn't such a remote and strenuous route.  Both Dolpo and Mustang occupy the remote region of Nepal along the Tibetan boarder seldom visited by trekkers.

 

The Himalayas offer an endless variety of landscapes, cultures and people. This unbounded diversity means it is a destination you can visit over and over again. Upper Dolpo is difficult to reach and is very arid. Few people live in the harsh climate. They are farmers, traders and shepherds, often all in one because this is the only way to survive. We pass through a great variation of scenery between Dolpo and Mustang, rice and wheat fields, incredible mountains and a high altitude desert, all in the rain shadow of the Himalaya. This variation makes Dolpo and Mustang trek very interesting. Foreigners have ‘discovered’ Dolpo only recently. Peter Matthiessen was one of the first to document the region in his book, “The Snow Leopard”, which describes his journey searching for the elusive snow leopard and rare Himalayan blue sheep.Even after the opening for tourism 17 years ago it remains relatively untouched. It is still a restricted area and high permit fees keep away many tourists. The costs are increased further by the lack of infrastructure so the trail has to supported by serviced camps.
