“Two long lost territories of highland Nepal, Upper Dolpo and Upper Mustang; Dolpo where the Bon and Tibetan Buddhism prospered side and side and also the place which houses Nepal’s one of the most fascinating landscapes and Mustang the forbidden kingdom which holds the prosperous history of Lobas and witnessed the culture of sky cemeteries long long ago.”

Dolpo to Jomsom ( Via Ghami la pass and Lomanthang) is one of the most adventurous trip that covers upper Dolpo and upper Mustang. Exploring the hidden religious and cultural treasures makes the trip momentous adventure. Enjoying the scenic beauty of the landscapes along with the glazing faces of the Himalayas in the lap of nature and exploring the authentic evidences of different episodes of super powered human existence en bloc provide the eternal satisfaction.

Dolpo to Mustang Trek can be made before May or after October because during the agricultural season in the regions nobody is allowed to enter the villages. But the trek in October is still highly recommended.

The trek is very adventurous and bit difficult and expensive. No pack animals can go through the trail only man power will be used.

On top of all these constraints the trek gives full satisfaction and can be one of the great adventures in the life time. This is only the trek in Nepal that gives you the real experience and realization of the real old Tibetan culture and tradition.
