Upper Dolpo Trekking:
Upper Dolpo Trek takes you out of this world beyond your imagination a beautiful country to experience an adventure of a lifetime around the wildest and remote parts of the Far North-Western Himalayas of Nepal. Few worldwide people might have heard or read a book about Upper Dolpo Trekking; the famous classic novel ‘Snow-Leopard’ by Peter Mathessian an American author published a novel in mid-1980’ after he explored this wonderful area of Upper and Inner Dolpo.
The other medium where the Dolpo Region of Nepal was famously exposed was the movie ‘Himalaya’; a French and Nepalese venture which was nominated for Oscar for best foreign Film in 1998. Since then, a smaller number of trekkers and explorers often visited Upper Dolpo to experience the great wilderness.
Upper Dolpo falls within Nepal’s largest National Park, Shey-Phoksundo National Park. The region covers an area of 3,555 sq. km and extends towards Dhaulagiri to the Mugu region of Nepal Western region.
Dolpo trek is a scenic country with serene woodland of blue pines, spruce, cypress, poplar, fir and birch. Higher areas have caragana shrubs. Wild animals like Blue Sheep, Snow Leopard, Himalayan Thar habitats and exotic bird-life like Impeyan Pheasant or Danphe (national bird of Nepal), blood pheasant, cheer pheasants, red and yellow-billed cough, raven, jungle crow, snow partridge are found in Upper Dolpo Nepal.

Likewise, you will also get to choose from a wide range of cuisines while in the major cities. However, once you move away from the cities, the options for meals and accommodations in Nepal will become limited. During the treks, the best accommodations available are lodges and teahouses. They provide basic facilities for dining and lodging. These places mostly serve traditional Nepali food “Daal Bhat Tarkari” (rice, pulses, and vegetables). Similarly, there are several other food varieties like Momo, Thukpa, and Thakali food available across Nepal.

While travelling to Nepal, banking and money exchange are not a huge deal in big cities like Pokhara and Kathmandu.

While trekking in Nepal is extremely satisfying, altitude sickness might get a better hold of you at times. The air pressure and oxygen concentration decrease the higher you travel. As such, altitude sickness is an illness that the human body suffers from due to these reasons. The symptoms of the sickness include lack of appetite, nausea, weakness, lightheartedness, sleep disturbance, tiredness, and headache. These symptoms generally appear when moving upwards of the height of 2,400 meters from sea level.
You can adopt different measures to avoid altitude sickness like a walk with a slow and steady pace, avoiding smoking, and stopping at different stations to acclimatize. Before beginning your trek, make sure you have a first aid kit with ibuprofen or paracetamol and Diamox. If anyone falls victim to altitude sickness, it is necessary to inform the trip leader and descend to a lower altitude. In extreme cases, it might also be necessary to perform Heli rescue and emergency evacuations.
Accidents can happen anywhere so, it is recommended for all the tourists to get travel insurance before visiting Nepal. Depending upon the insurance policy and the company, the insurance will look after tragic like theft, loss or accidental damage of gears and other belongings, baggage, and medical emergencies. Likewise, the insurance should also include helicopter evacuation and any kinds of mishaps that might occur during adventure sporting like bungee jumping, rafting, and zip-lining. No one is capable of foreseeing the accidents, but each individual can by themselves an insurance policy to lessen the effects of the accident.
Internet and Communication:
It is quite easy to access the Internet in Nepal. Using Wi-Fi is a widely used way to communicate and use the Internet. Wi-Fi is easily available in major cities and even in some remote destinations. When trekking to remote locations, Wi-Fi might not always be available; so, using cellular data is the best way to communicate over the Internet. You can buy a Sim-card in Nepal at a reasonable price which allows you to make an international call. Also, you can use mobile data while you are in the areas without Wi-Fi. Telephone, Fax, and newspapers are a few other forms of communication in Nepal.

Trekking Seasons in Nepal:
The country lies in the temperate zone and has four distinct climates: spring, summer (with monsoon), autumn, and winter. Normally, the best time to trek in Nepal is in March-May (spring) when the skies are clear, trails are filled with blooming flora, and the temperature is just right.
Another appropriate season is mid-September to November (autumn), during which the temperature is moderate, skies are clear, and mountain views are stunning. The summer season (June – August) is occupied by heavy rainfall increasing the chances of landslides in the hills, while the winter season brings in harsh weather conditions and extreme cold. However, there are treks which can be done during winter and monsoon as well.
Upper Dolpo and Upper Mustang regions lie in the rain-shadow area so, they are ideal trek destinations during monsoon. Likewise, easy and low-altitude treks like Ghorepani Poonhill and Tamang Heritage Trek are perfect during the winter season.
