Trip Introduction

We pass through many ancient monasteries and highland villages and wonderful natural scenery as we make our way to Phoksundo Lake and the fabled Shey Gompa. We explore alpine meadows and exotic villages in Upper Dolpo which has kept Bhoriya culture alive. We also get to experience Thakkali culture in Mustang.

The most interesting factor of this trek is that we get to witness the cultural difference of the people of different regions, had centuries ago. Dolpo the high mountainous settlement holds the nomads that migrated to the region ages ago. Similarly the people of Mustang also called Lopas also migrated from Tibet almost during the same time. Still the contrast between the people of these two regions in the past and in the recent times is so huge in terms of civilization; it is an interesting discovery.
