Dolpo Region has opened for trekking in 1989, the Dolpo region is hard to match for it’s pristine beauty and rugged charm, where one can still have opportunity to meet the nomadic people and their life style almost untouched and unexplored. The Himalayas offer an endless variety of landscapes, cultures and great people. This unbounded diversity makes it a destination you can visit over and over again. It even becomes more interesting and fascinating with all those beauty and attractive nature every time you return.Lying in the rain shadow area of the Himalayas, the landscape resembles that of the Tibetan Plateau instead of the lush, green, monsoon watered hills, elsewhere in Nepal, at comparative altitudes.

The Dolpo are generally adherents of Bon, a religion whose origins predate Buddhism but whose modern form is officially accepted as a fifth school of Tibetan Buddhism. The remote region has preserved its Tibetan culture in relatively pure form, making it attractive to Westerners.Not much was known about Dolpa in the outside world until quite recently. This mid-western district of Nepal was closed to foreigners until 1989 (certain areas still require a special permit) and the little people knew had been learned from literary and cinematic accounts like Peter Matthiessen’s book “The Snow Leopard” and Eric Valli’s epic adventure film “Himalaya” (Caravan) and more recently for the German documentary Dolpo Tulku. In spite of the near inaccessibility of the region and tourism restrictions for the more remote parts, Dolpa is a popular destination for trekking tourism.

Shey Gompa, the crystal mountain, and Phoksundo lake have evolved into a trek that is almost a pilgrimage. It is the highest inhabited land on earth, where the elusive snow leopard moves as soundless as a shadow, stalking small herds of Bharal on forgotten hillsides. Remote and romantic, it has no major 8000 m peaks to entice with vertical adventures, but those who are drawn to its mystery are changed forever. For a single visit here to visit this ancient land has a way of haunting ones dreams with a demand to return.

Prime Highlights of Dolpo Region.

  • You get an insight into the life and culture of the followers of Bon Buddhism.
  • You will follow the footprints of the ancient trans-Himalayan traders.

Dolpo Trekking Season

The preferred seasons to complete the Dolpa Trekking is April to November. However, please check with a local tour operator if lodges are open in April and if passes are open in November as this will depend on prevailing weather conditions. This is a recommended trek to do in monsoon season as the Upper Dolpo region lies in the rain shadow. However keep in mind that travel to and from the trailhead can be interrupted by bad weather in the lowlands so give yourself an extra day or two on both ends of your trip to accommodate flight cancellations and road blockage.

Restrictions

A minimum of two trekkers accompanied by a Nepali guide or Porter is required for a permit to trek Dolpo region. So, make sure you have a Trekking Partner or a trekking agency for the trek.

Dolpo Trek Difficulty

Due to its remote location, Dolpa is still an “off the beaten track destination”. Tourists are few and far between, especially in the summer months. The Dolpa Trek is a quite strenuous trekking with some steep climbs. The trail ascends to two high passes, Numa La (5318 m) and Baga La (5190 m). These crossings involve long climbs and long descents. That being said, the scenery on the way , the views from the passes and the encounters you will have with the Dolpa people will make it all worth it.

The Annapurna Region is proving to be a popular tourist destination that provides a mecca of magnificent snow-capped mountains, sweeping glaciers, natural forests including rhododendron forests with untamed wildlife, a flora and fauna natural paradise with a wide diversity of people from many different ethnic groups.

The Annapurna area was opened to foreign trekkers in 1977 after the disputes between CIA backed Khampa guerrillas operating from the area into Tibet, and the local populace and Nepal army were settled. The original trek started from the market town of Dhumre situated at the Kathmandu – Pokhara highway and ended in Pokhara, and took about 23 days to complete. Road construction started in early 1980s both from Dhumre to the north and from Pokhara to the west and then up the Kali Gandaki valley

The Annapurna region is a dream for independent trekkers. It combines some of Nepal’s most iconic mountains, including fish-tailed Machhapuchhare and massive Annapurna itself, with a superb trekking infrastructure and easy access, as most trailheads are just an hour or two from Pokhara. The region’s charming Gurung, Manangi and Thakli villages add a cultural highlight.

The Annapurna Region has renowned as one of the world’s greatest treks. While most trekkers follow the standard route there are a number of interesting side trips that can be added or alternate shorter treks if one lacks time to complete the entire circuit. Here we give a brief summary of the Annapurna Circuit as well as the possible side trips and alternate routes.

Annapurna Region trek is one of the most cherished regions for treks that offers some spectacular views of mountains, lush landscapes, forests, rivers, greenery and deepest gorge of the world. Located in the Central Nepal, this region holds the pride of Annapurna massif. As you immerse deep into the trails of Annapurna region , you will dissolve in to the beauty of towering mountain peaks like Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Annapurna IV, Annapurna South, Machapuchare, Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri, Himchuli, Lamjung Himal and many more.

Nepal Tours offers camping and tea house trekking for 1 day to 20 days hiking treks to all of the above Annapurna destinations. If you are interested in exploring the Annapurna Region, below are some of the itineraries, or alternatively we can be in contact so you may personally tailor your own itinerary.

Everything you need for travel to Kathmandu. Kathmandu itinerary includes travel tips, costs, how to get around, and how to spend a days in Kathmandu, Nepal. Kathmandu Valley represents a cultural meeting point in the region. The valley’s profound mystic culture and lifestyle is based on a unique amalgamation of Hinduism and Buddhism as well as many other faiths and belief systems. Kathmandu Valley, the cultural and commercial hub of Nepal, contains three fabled cities – Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur.

Kathmandu is packed full of important religious shrines, temples, relics from history, and places to eat and sleep on the cheap. Not to mention there’s the Thamel neighborhood, which is perhaps the biggest counterfeit (and non-counterfeit) outdoor gear bazaar in the world.

Each has an artistic exposition of graceful temples, elegant palaces, brick-paved courtyards and quaint streets. Multi roofed temples, exquisite monasteries, stone carvings and wooden carvings, and the age-old traditions and religious festivals have kept Kathmandu valley with immense vivacity till today. The Kathmandu valley holds a considerably high number of places recognized by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites.

Kathmandu is a city with no shortage of awesome things to do. The top things to do in Kathmandu don’t cost much money either, which is always a bonus.  Kathmandu is not overflowing with pristine historical sites like cities in Europe. A majority of Kathmandu isn’t stunningly beautiful or aesthetically pleasing, but what architectural and cultural treasures Kathmandu does possess are well worth seeing!.  Apart from cultural sites, shrines, and temples, there is plenty of tasty food to try, haggling to be done, and optional day trips to areas outside of Kathmandu.  Here is links to of the things to do in Kathmandu to get your ideas flowing.

Kathmandu Itinerary is very suitable for the people who have short time and love the nature and mountain views staying very close to the capital of Nepal. Kathmandu Trekking which conducts from Kakani – Chisopani – Nagarkot – Dhulikhel trekking is known as the rim valley trekking offers unique opportunity to explore the wonders of nature. As you are walking over the hills, you will have the stunning view of Mountains, sunrise / sun set over the Himalayas and the rural villages, people and their local lifestyles.

What is the best time to visit Kathmandu?

Every season in Kathmandu, Nepal, has something to offer, making it one of the places which can be explored at any time of the year! October to December, however, remains the best time to visit Kathmandu because of the views of pristine glaciers and skies. During these months, the place remains dry and suitable for exploration and trekking. The temperature in October ranges from 26 degrees Celsius to 14 degrees Celsius, and as December approaches, it drops to the range of 20 degrees Celsius to 4 degrees Celsius. During these suitable months for visiting Kathmandu, you can also witness and indulge in various festivals that are celebrated.

The Everest Region Nepal is more than just trekking, it is a milestone in anyone’s life; and some have even described the experience as a journey close to Nirvana. Located in the northeast province of Nepal, this is a colony to dramatic glaciers, deep settlements, several majestic mountains. Trekking to the Everest also provides us an opportunity to embark on an epic journey that Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay set off to in 1953

Khumbu Valley trekking (also known as the Everest Region) is a region of north eastern Nepal on the side of Mount Everest in Nepal. Khumbu valley is part of the Solukhumbu District, which in turn is part of the Sagarmatha Zone. Reach the highest point on earth or choose to live out your dream by standing at the foot of Mt. Everest (8,848 m). Everest Region is a famous adventure activity done by thousands of trekkers and travelers every year.

Solu Khumbu is justifiably famous, not only for its proximity to the world’s highest mountain (8848 metres), but also for its Sherpa villages and monasteries. The primary goal of an Everest trek is the Everest base camp at an elevation of about 5340 metres. But you cannot see Everest from the base camp, so most trekkers climb Kala Pattar, an unassuming 5545-metre bump on the southern flank of Pumori (7145 metres).

 

Things to See in Everest Region

  1. The Sagarmatha National Park:
    the country’s first national park inscribed as a Natural World Heritage Site. Trekking in Everest region generally includes trekking through the national park’s forests and enjoying its natural perseverance and protection of the region’s floral and faunal life. The Sagarmatha National Park has an exceptional area within its parameters and it covers most of the dramatic mountains of the region, glaciers and deep valleys. Dominated by Mount Everest, the Sagarmatha National Park is a home to several rare species of animals like the Snow Leopard and the Red Panda. The area of the national park represents a major stage of the Earth’s evolutionary history and is one of the most geologically interesting regions in the world with high, young mountains and glaciers creating awe-inspiring landscapes and dominated by the high peaks and coruscating deep-incised valleys. The park contains the world’s highest feature of biodiversity intricately blended with the region’s rich Sherpa culture.
  2. Lukla Tenzing Hillary Airport
    Lukla Airport, which was renamed the Tenzing Hillary Airport in 2008, is both extremely small and extremely busy. With its short runaway, steep incline, and quickly changing weather, Lukla has one of the most challenging runways in the world. In fact, for the past 20 years it has been named the most dangerous airport in the world. High winds, low lying clouds and sudden changes in visibility are some of the reasons behind this title. Bad weather is also a huge factor in the frequent cancellation of flights. Lukla is a gateway for Everest region trek.
  3. Explore the Namche Bazaar:
    Namche Bazaar is a town and in Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality in Solukhumbu District of Province No. 1 of north-eastern Nepal. It is located within the Khumbu area at 3,440 metres at its low point, populating the sides of a hill. Most Sherpa who are in the tourism business are from the Namche area. Every Saturday morning, Namche Bazaar lights up with its weekly market gusto. The market is a spotlight in the middle of the town, and traders from Tibet and other villages come with the pieces of arts and goods to attract the hearts of their potential customers.
  4. Visit Tengboche Monastery
    Tengboche Monastery is one of the most famous monasteries of Nepal, probably because of its unrivalled backdrop of Mount Ama Dablam. Tengboche Monastery is the leading Buddhist centre in the Khumbu with a residing Rinpoche who blesses pilgrims and travelers to the area. Every October / November, Tengboche Monastery hosts the colorful Mani Rimdu festival, which is a culmination of Buddhist celebrations with religious gathering, songs, dances, enactments of legends. Visitors are also welcomed to partake in the festivities. Tours of the monastery are conducted every afternoon.
  5. Experiencing Sherpa Culture
    The trek to Everest Base Camp provides trekkers with the opportunity to observe, participate and experience the culture of Sherpa who are the tribe of Tibetan origin living in the lap of Himalaya. They are well known for their skills in mountaineering and thus regarded as expert mountaineers in their local terrain. You can go to different places such as Dudh Koshi, Lukla, and Namche Bazar during the trek. These places depict the lifestyle of Sherpas and help to make ones trip a memorable one.

Best Time to Travel in Khumbu Region:
There are two distinct trekking seasons. The best months to trek to Everest base camp are pre-monsoon (February, March, April and May) and post monsoon (late September, October, November and December) It is possible to make the journey in February and early September but we prefer the above for our treks into Everest base camp. My personal favorites are March, late October and November.

Tourism in Nepal is safe and will remain safe. The Popular tourism destination like Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan, Everest region, Annapurna region, Langtang region, etc. are considered very safe regions. These days a Bandha is rare. The Bandh is a strike called by any political party. However you can expect some change in the itinerary if a Transport strike is called by a political party. Such strike has zero effect in sight seeing in Kathmandu valley or trekking.

The illegal Trekking or Travel agency, trekking operator / tour operator, Individual trekking guide /freelancer, personal website creator for tourism activities are only concerned with their own wealth and often pay their trekking staff very less and in most occasion don’t offer them insurance, proper equipment or any other kind of support so concerning all the adventure trip so to choose the government registered Nepal trekking or travel company is one of the best scheme to concrete your dream in to the reality.

Known as the land of snowy peaks, incredible landscapes, and impressive mountains, Nepal is a country that has culture, adventure, and adrenaline rolled into one. Home to ten of the highest peaks in the world, it is no wonder that this place is frequented by adventure junkies from all over the world. However, during our trip to Nepal, what surprised me the most was the fact that beyond the mighty Himalayan mountains, the country itself is incredibly diverse and lush. Offering tourists a wide array of things to do, Nepal is a country that didn’t disappoint.

1.Before Visiting to Nepal.
Before you head off on your Nepal tour, there are some things you should consider knowing and having, to save you from a bad experience whilst in this stunningly beautiful Himalayan kingdom. Travel insurance, while not a requirement in Neal, is a good thing to have just in case something untoward happens, such as having your wallet stolen or needing hospital care. A good travel insurance does not cost a lot, and can save your life if things go wrong in Nepal. Hospitals in Nepal are not free, and you will need to show an ability to make the payments first. All of the hospitals have affiliations with the major insurance companies, and can quickly and easily validate and verify your travel insurance to take care of the bill, or transfer you to another country or even home, in severe cases.

2. Social Etiquette in Nepal
First and foremost, you‘ll want to know how to greet the locals. The traditional manner of greeting in Nepal involves placing your palms together in a prayer style and saying “namaste” or “namaskar”. Address anyone older than you with respect using the terms “dai” for men and “didi” for women. And avoid stepping over someone‘s outstretched legs or touching anyone with your feet as these are considered impolite.

3. Water Safety in Nepal
If you plan on staying in Nepal for a while, you may want to pack a boiling pan and filter for the tap water. Water from the tap is not safe for consumption, even if it‘s from your hotel. Remember to also avoid fruit that may have been washed in contaminated water or drinking soft drinks with ice in them, as the ice may have been made from tap water. Stick to bottled water, which can be found in just about every store in the country.

4. Solo women trekking in Himalaya Nepal
Solo trekking not recommends for any female traveler to the Himalayas because of the safety point of views, illness and accidents. It is better to search and find the travel mate or to join the group with fix departure with other trekking agency or hire a guide or porter for safety that helpful to know the local people, language, culture and lifestyle.
