It is not what the name suggests, but this rather heavy trek crosses 2 high passes in the Dolpo region.
The area is remote, unspoilt and has something mysterious. You can get to know the Bön-Po religion (anciestor of Buddhism) in the local villages and old monasteries.
Because the area is located in the “rain shadow” of the Himalayas, this trek can also be done during the summer months (monsoon) because it will rarer rain here.
The area has only been opened for trekking in 1989 and remains difficult to access.
The fantastic Phoksumdo lake, the Bön monastery and crossing the two passes (Numa La and Baga La) are the highlights of the trek. In general, nature is similar to the nature at the Tibetan plateau.
We ask your extra care here for the environment, to protect the vulnerable fauna and flora and to preserve the age-old culture.
This is a challenging trek which requires a good health and fitness.
Due to the irregular flights to / from the area, it is needed to keep 3 to 4 spare days in mind (before and after your trek)!
