Ba-Yul, the hidden Land of Dolpo, was first settled by Rokpa farmers and Dorkpa nomads from Tibet in the 10th century. It is one of the highest inhabited places on earth, with scattered fortress-like villages and monasteries nestling amongst mountains of stark ascetic beauty. Although the part of Nepal, Dolpo remains culturally and economically firmly tied to Tibet. Like Limi Valley in Humla, the people of this desolate area are cut off from their southerly neighbors by snow-covered passes for much of the year.

OVERVIEW

Ba-Yul, the hidden Land of Dolpo, was first settled by Rokpa farmers and Dorkpa nomads from Tibet in the 10th century. It is one of the highest inhabited places on earth, with scattered fortress-like villages and monasteries nestling amongst mountains of stark ascetic beauty. Although the part of Nepal, Dolpo remains culturally and economically firmly tied to Tibet. Like Limi Valley in Humla, the people of this desolate area are cut off from their southerly neighbors by snow-covered passes for much of the year.

Much of the area in Dolpo lies with the boundaries of Shey-Phoksundo National park, the inner core of which is also a restricted area requiring the standard permit. This is the is trek where you will experience all the wonderful variety of landscape and mountain environment that the west has to offer – from grassy lekhs, lush meadows, forests of maple and walnut and idyllic clear mountain streams near Jumla, to snow-covered high mountains passes, glaciers and sweeping vistas of barren, seemingly lifeless hills stretching northwards into Tibet.

September is considered the optimum month for this route, as the monsoon recedes and winter winds and snows have yet to afflict the highlands. Be prepared for sweltering heat intense humidity and even torrential rain as you hike the first few days. September until November is considered the best season to trek.

Highlights of the trek

  • Enjoying a day of by the meditative turquoise water of Phoksundo Lake, Nepal deepest and most beautiful lake.
  • Trekking through deep forests to the tranquil beauty of Rara Lake, for a rare taste of a Nepali wilderness.
  • Exploring the Bon monasteries of the upper Tharap Valley, with its yak caravans and villages straight out of the film Caravan (Oscar-nominated movie).
  • Making your own inner journey in the footsteps of Peter Matthiessen’s The Snow Leopard on the ever-changing Beni to Dolpo Trek.
  • Pitching your tent in the achingly beautiful wilderness between the Baga La and Numa La.
