Dolpo Jomsom Trek traverse Musikhola and Jugben-La Pass New Route, 17 Days

Jours: 17 / Difficulté: 4 of 5 (Intense)

Dolpo Jomsom Trek traverses Musi Khola and Jungben La is one of the most audacious treks in the Nepal Himalayas that moves through truly off-the-beaten trails connecting Dolpo with Annapurna region. This trek is ideal for thrill seekers who do not mind getting lost in the wilderness of the Himalayas as the trails are quite, and sometimes without human settlements. The trails are untouched and unspoiled thus you can get a firsthand experience of trekking in the remote areas on the foot of the Dhaulagiri massif.

Dolpo Jomsom Trek starts with your arrival in Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu, from where you first fly to Nepalgunj and then take a scenic flight along the Himalayan range to Juphal, the administrative office of Dolpo. The trail takes you past vast and rugged landscapes, fortified villages, ancient monasteries, and Chortens. The villages like Kakkot and Mukot are untouched and are visited by only a few outsiders. The quite trails take you through deep forests, wide meadows, rocky paths, and moraines, giving you an exhilarating experience. Walking past the grazing area of Yak Kharka, you reach Niwas High Camp, where you can find yourself surrounded by sparkling mountains from all sides. Up ahead are two high passes Niwas La (5120m) and Jungben La (5550m). The views of the Dolpo region and the Himalayan ranges, including Annapurna and Dhaulagiri massifs, seen from these high passes are absolutely stunning. The latter part of the trek takes you into the quiet paths of Kali Gandaki valley, contrary to the popular route alongside the river. The trek comes to an end as you make your way through the forest to reach Jomsom.
