Dolpa (Dolpo) Region, Nepal

View full itinerary: Upper Mustang to Dolpo

Highlights: Lo Manthang

Difficulty: strenuous
via Northern route (Kekyap La and Chanagor La)

This is a very remote and high route between Lo Manthang in Upper Mustang and Chharka Bot in Dolpo. It may be difficult to find a guide who has experience on the route and there is no maintained trail. The trail goes over the Kakyap La 5600 m then stays above 5000 m for at least 3 days before going over the 5665 m Chanagor La. Proper acclimatization is crucial.

Weather Conditions in June

change start

The middle of June typically marks the beginning of the monsoon. Clear mornings are still possible but get increasingly less likely towards the end of the month. Be prepared for rain and hot humid weather in the low elevation valleys. The added moister means the hills are beginning to change to their vibrant monsoon green. The weather is generally a little drier than in the low valleys at high altitude, but cloud cover can be frustrating when trekking to viewpoints. As always in the spring, early morning is your best chance for clear skies.
