Upper Dolpo – Dunai to Jomson
I am departing on the upper Dolpa trek, travelling from Dunai, Phoksundo Lake, Shey Gompa, Saldang, Chharka, Jomson. I have organised a guide and porter (possibly two) from a reputable agency and they have offered a very good deal for the trek. We hope to travel quite light with a mix of camping and where there are lodges we stay in these. We will carry and cook our own food, tents etc.
Because of my work at an NZ University, I can’t start until November 9th – which is quite late in the season. This means there is a possibility the pass between Phoksundo Lake and Shey Gompa might be snowed in, in which case we will trek out via an alternative route through Dhorpatan park to Beni.
I have previously trekked in both Nepal (Everest, Langtang) and North India (Ladakh, Zanskar and others), so have some idea what I might be getting myself into…but it was quite a few years ago now and I’m not getting any younger.
This is a trek I have always wanted to do. 20 years ago I spent a month trekking through remote Zanskar and it is the most incredible thing I’ve ever done. I imagine this trip might be similar.
I’m going either way, but if anyone wants to join me get in touch.Reply
