Additional Info

Accommodations

We will provide 3 star hotel in Kathmandu and teahouses during the trek. All accommodations are on twin-shared basis. Single supplement will be served on request and will cost an additional USD 350. Bharal Adventure will arrange rooms with attached washrooms; however, teahouses in some remote places only have shared washing and toilet facilities.Also note that single rooms are readily available in Kathmandu and the trekking regions at lower elevation but it might be difficult to find them at higher elevations.

Meals

Breakfast (only) will be available in Kathmandu whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) will be available during the trek. We can enjoy freshly-cooked, hygienic and nutritious meals on full-board basis prepared by our trained and experienced cook during the trek. Authentic Nepalese, Tibetan dishes as well as the more common international cuisine (Tibetan, Continental, Italian, Indian, etc.) will be available.

Leader(s) & Staff Arrangements

The most significant thing that makes this trek, enjoyable and memorable is the skilled, experienced, courteous and helpful leader(s) and crew members. Our trip will be led by only the best and most professional leaders. All of Bharal Adventure's leaders are carefully selected on the basis of their appropriate experience, leadership skills and personal aptitude. With an objective of sustaining local communities, Bharal Adventure only employs local staff who have adequate knowledge about culture, ecosystem, flora, fauna, geography, and history of their local region/s. The trek and expedition leaders have undergone the following trainings:

  • Intensive Wilderness First Aid
  • Trekking Guide Training
  • Eco Trekking Workshop and Adventure Meet
  • English Language
  • Conservation and Biodiversity
  • Rock climbing, Ice Climbing and Mountaineering (for expedition leaders)

Porter Care

Though often overlooked, it's no exaggeration to say the entire trekking and expedition industry in Nepal is built on the back of hard-working local porters. It is their tireless efforts carrying supplies, equipment and baggage that make journeying to these remote areas possible. Therefore, we are firmly committed to porter rights. We make sure that all our porters are well treated, well paid and we provide the level of shelter, clothing and footwear that these harsh environments demand. Porters who become sick are treated with the same care and attention as other team members and we have previously used helicopters - at our expense - to rescue porters from dangerous situations. We support the work of the International Porter Protection Group (IPPG), making our resources available to them to help improve the working conditions of the porters. (International Porters Progress Group)

Environmental Concerns

This Dolpo region is stunningly beautiful, but equally fragile. Future generations have just as much of a right to appreciate it as we do and so the tourism industry has an obligation to protect and preserve it. We employ a 'zero impact' policy on the natural environment and the traditional communities that live there. We enforce a number of do's and don'ts, and our experienced staff can advise you on how to minimize your impact.

Travel Insurance

It is a condition upon joining any of Bharal Adventure's trips that all clients be insured for comprehensive expenses that might incur due to medical issues or accidents (this includes air ambulance, helicopter rescue, and treatment costs). Please note that we don't arrange or sell insurance.

Acclimatization

Lower Dolpo Trek’s itinerary is planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). A separate day is set aside in Do Tarap for acclimatization. Going up at higher altitudes too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to result in death. The higher the altitude, the less oxygen will be in the air. For example, at an altitude above of 5000m, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Therefore, our body needs many days to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. 

Bharal Adventure advises guest(s) with known heart, lungs or blood diseases to consult their doctor before traveling. Mild headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorders are symptoms of AMS. Check out "Altitude illness" by Dr Jim Duff. .  Bharal Adventure's itineraries are designed to try to prevent AMS as much as possible. However, it is important to remember that some visitors are more vulnerable than others.

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

Lower Dolpo Trek is categorized as a difficult trek. In such trek, you are likely to walk for 6-7 hours, cross steep, hilly terrain and occasional high passes of up to 5500m. You are likely to be in a remote environment with extreme weather on some days. You will also be facing high-altitude air with low levels of oxygen. Therefore, previous trekking experience, physical fitness and a positive attitude are essential. Exercising and jogging regularly for some weeks prior to the trip is a good idea to enhance our strength and stability. Past hiking experience is fundamental but no technical skill is required for this trip. It is vital for participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases to consult their doctor before taking the trip. It is also advised that you inform Bharal Adventure about your medical condition before booking the trek.

Best Time to Travel

Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to October) are the best months for this trip. Since the Dolpo region lies in the rain shadow area formed by Dhaulagiri and Annapurna ranges, you can also take this trip during the Monsoon season (June to August).

Detail Itinerary

Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu 1340m.

Bharal Adventure Pvt. Ltd. airport representatives will receive you in an airport and transfer you to hotel in Kathmandu. Trip details will be discussed and final preparation is made with the trekking guide or leader.

Day 02: Full day Sightseeing tour around Kathmandu valley 1340m.

Pre-briefing with trekking guide, last minute shopping for your trip and Kathmandu valley sightseeing will be done in this day. The UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITES will be visited like Pashupatinath Temple, Boudhanath Stupa, Swaymbhunath (Monkey Temple) and Patan Durbar Square.

Day 03: Fly to Nepalgunj & sightseeing

On the third day you will be take a flight to Nepalgunj from Kathmandu. Nepalgunj is a vibrant city located in the Mid-Western Region of Nepal. The flight duration is around 60 minutes and in that time you will reach the lowlands of Terai from the Capital. Nepalgunj is nearby the border Indian states of Rupediya and also Baharaich. The rest of the day you will sightsee around the local bazaar using horse cart which might come as a wonderful moment for the foreigners. Bageshowri Temple in Nepalgunj is quite popular and a visit to the Hindu temple in the evening will be a good thing to do the evening. Overnight stay at a hotel.

Day 04: Fly to Jhupal (2320m) from Nepalgunj

A 35-minute flight from Nepalgunj Airport takes you to Juphal on the fourth day. The flight is awesome as the aircraft flies over the mountain ridges, the beautiful valleys and the majestic-looking mountains. Jhupal Airport is a small airstrip amidst the mountains and the hills. You will also get a first-hand experience of the geographical diversity of Nepal as in an hour or so you will reach a small village amidst the mountains from a hot city of Tarai. From Jhupal, you will walk for a few hours until you reach Dunai, the headquarters of Dolpa district. Overnight stay at a guesthouse.

Day 05: Trek to Tarakot (2543m) 4hrs

On the fifth day, we start our trek from Dunai to Tarakot after having breakfast in the morning. The trail follows along the Thuli Bheri River and amazing landscape of the Dolpo region which by now starts to show its colour. Mostly the people inhabiting in Dolpo region are the ones from Tibetan descent and the Sherpas. The landscape might get rough and rocky at some places. Road service has not yet reached the Dolpa region and Dolpa happens to be one of the most remote areas of Nepal. Guesthouses are sparse and hence we have to carry camping materials if the situation demands. Overnight stay at a guesthouse/tented camp.

Day 06: Trek to Laini (3160m) 5hrs

From Tarakot, the trail attains altitude gradually. On our way, we come across many local villages and Buddhist monasteries. We also cross several suspension bridges over the Thuli Bheri River. There are several Tent-hotels along the way and we can stop by and fill up our stock of snacks when needed. Tent-hotels also serve food and drinks to the travelers. Items like biscuits, noodles and other consumable items can be bought from such shops. Overnight stay at a tented camp.

Day 07: Trek to Nawarpani (3545 m) 4hrs

The next morning we take tea and breakfast at the camp itself and resume our journey to the Dolpo region. We reach Nawarpani after about four hours of adventurous trek from Laini. It is a comfortable trek as the trail sometimes passes through pine forests, and yet at other times through fir trees. Tent-hotels are available along the way to Nawarpani. Overnight stay at Nawarpani in a tented camp.

Day 08: Trek to Tarap (4090 m) 5hrs

From Nawarpani, the landscape suddenly seems to have changed as we now approach a small settlement area in between the huge mountains. A big Buddhist monastery is present in Tarap and almost all of the people in Tarap are inclined on Buddhism or they are the descendents of Tibetans. Traditionally, the women of this region wear dark dresses with colorful aprons weaved from yak wool. The women also wear bracelets made from big shells as part of Tibetan tradition. Taking with the local people also helps the foreigners to learn about the traditional Sherpa and Tibetan culture. Overnight stay at a tented camp.

Day 09: Rest day at Tarap

The next day of the itinerary, we will be taking rest at Tarap for acclimatization purpose, getting used to the conditions and the increasing altitude. You can travel around the village in Tarap while conversing with the local villagers. Overnight stay at a tented camp.

Day 10: Trek to Numa-La Base Camp (4440m) 5hrs

After spending a day at Tarap, we resume our trek the next day. While on the way we also happen to cross the ‘Crystal Mountain School’ which is educating children from the nearby region. It is funded by a French NGO. A further one hour trek from the School takes us to the Numa La Base Camp situated at the altitude of 4440 meters. There is a Buddhist monastery in Numa La Base Camp and we will be staying in a temporary camp on day 10 at Numa La Base Camp.

Day 11: Cross Numa-La Base Camp (5190m) 6hrs

A tough day’s trek awaits us on the eleventh day of the trek as we cross Numa La Base Camp. It is better to start early so that we can cross the Pass before weather deteriorates in the afternoon. Morning time is generally favorable to cross the Pass as it is easier and safer. Besides, we also have more chances to peek at the mountains for later in the day they might be covered by clouds.
It’s a long and strenuous climb and hence you are advised to go slow and steady breathing as much air as possible. On a clear day, it is possible to view Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Manaslu and Kanjirowa (6883 m) mountains from the Pass. Overnight stay at a tented camp.

Day 12: Cross Baga-La Pass (5070 m)

The next day, we cross another Pass and hence another tough but a beautiful day lies ahead of you. Again, an early beginning is advisable. A good 2 hours of trekking after leaving the camp takes us to a High Camp which is close to the Baga La Pass. From then on, the Baga La Pass is quite close and an hour’s trek takes us to the Baga La Pass which also offers uncluttered views of mountains like Kanjirowa and others. Overnight stay at a tented camp.

Day 13: Trek to Ringmo (3600m)

Trek from Baga La Pass to Ringmo is quite long, but the trail is easier and we down climb now from an altitude of 5000 meters. We walk past Yak Kharka and Maduwa Khola and the path is beautifully carved out from the rocks. Then we cross a thick Pine forest and while on the way we also see several nice waterfalls. Ringmo is a nice little place where we will be camping for the night.

Day 14: Rest day and trek to Shey Phoksundo Lake

From Ringmo, we trek until Shey Phoksundo Lake, the deepest lake in Nepal. Shey Phoksundo is quite popular for its exotic location and for the pristine natural beauty it commands. The tiredness from the trip disappears once you behold the bewitching beauty of the grand lake. Upon enjoying the great view of the magnificent lake, we stay overnight at a tented camp.

Day 15: Trek to Shyanta

We will mostly be descending on day 15 as we go further downhill. The destination for today is the village in Shyanta and we spend the night there in a tented camp.

Day 16: Trek to Jhupal

We trek further down to Jhupal from where the entire trek started almost two weeks ago. For the rest of the day we will stay at a guesthouse in Jhupal while preparing for the flight to Nepalgunj next day.

Day 17: Fly to Nepalgunj and then to Kathmandu

Early in the morning, we will fly to Nepalgunj from Jhupal. After reaching Nepalgunj, later in the day, we will fly back to Kathmandu. Overnight stay at a hotel in Kathmandu

Day 18: Final departure from Kathmandu.

The amazing Nepal trekking ends once we bid farewell. Our Airport Representatives will take you to Airport and with promise to meet again we bid farewell. Bharal Adventure is always there for the best arrangement of your holidays.

Atemberaubend und immer wieder schn

Everest view Trek mit schnen Aussichten und einem Guide, der auf alles achtet. Ich crate immer wieder in Nepal , nur habe ich mich in solche Hhen noch nie getraut. Es braucht schon etwas Vorbereitung , denn man muss fit sein fr thus ein Vorhaben. Schon allein der Flug nach Lukla ist ein Abenteuer fr sich . Man sieht Berge und Menschen , die mit wenigen Worten nicht zu beschreiben sind . Mit Suman act ich auf einen wunderschnen Weg unterwegs .Jedes mal, wenn er merkte, dass ich an meine Grenzen gekommen box, wurde erst mal eine kleine Rast eingelegt, in view of that dass ich mich immer wohl und gut aufgehoben gefhlt habe. So konnte ich den ganzen Weg geniessen. Vor allem suit ich sehr fasziniert, wie die Menschen da oben leben und wie herzlich sie doch sind. Der Weg alleine, ist mit all seinen Aussichten und seiner Geschichte , diese Reise wert. Noch einmal vielen Dank fr die liebe Beratung und einen Freund, der mir immer zur Seite gestanden hat.

Solo travelers welcome!

I went to Nepal on a 9-day trek in the Langtang region a couple years ago. I was traveling on my own so I really appreciated to be with a trustworthy and friendly guide Sujan. I would definitely recommend his agency and would like to go back myself!

Recommander l’Agence Bharal Adventure

Je tiens à recommander l'Agence Bharal Adventure que nous avons eu l'occasion d'utiliser dans le cadre de notre Trek au Népal.

En effet, nous n'avons eu qu'à louer le professionnalisme, l'accueil, le sérieux et la capacité d'écoute des différents interlocuteurs rencontrés au sein de l'Agence. Notre binôme Guide Sujan e a été omniprésent et rigoureux pour nous permettre d'atteindre nos objectifs personnels et de découvrir les charmes et secrets du Népal. La capacité d'adaptation, l'écoute, la sécurité, la gentillesse et la connaissance de leur métier sont les principales caractéristiques de ceux-ci. Notre satisfaction n'en ai que plus grande.

Au de-là d'un rêve qui a pu devenir réalité, ce trek qui partait de Shivalaya après Jiri jusqu' au Kala Patthar en passant par GokyoRi et le col du Cho La, est finalement une des meilleures approches de la découverte de ce pays et des paysages de haute montagne. 
C'est sur la recommandation de Base Camp que nous avons pu l'aborder, l'envisager et finalement le reussir. De fait, je retiens que si je devais avoir de nouveaux objectifs montagneux dans l'avenir au Népal, je n'aurai aucune hésitation à les contacter pour envisager avec eux ce projet

EBC trekking with Bharal Adventure

We team of 6 from Malaysia undergoing our trekking journey guided by our professional tour guide, Arjun Dhakal & 3 good porters. We managed to make it to EBC on 19 May 2018. Arjun he is well in arranging our itinerary included route, accommodation, meal and even care about our safety. I was having bad cough and walking very slow far behind my teammate on my last day of trekking down to Lukla. And he was walking next to me, never left me alone. Together we finally reached Lukla within estimated time. Due to bad weather, we were stuck at Lukla for 1 day, as our flight is on the day after. Arjun had been trying his best to get us helicopter ticket on the next day. Once ticket confirmed, we went down hill to Sukey to catch our helicopter. From there I saw some others feeling upset as they waited for 6 hours but couldn’t get their helicopter ticket back to Kathmandu. We are blessed that Arjun never dissappointed us. He had make us a wonderful and unforgettable trip. Thanks to Arjun! Highly recommended tour with Bharal Adventure

Excellent people!

After many searches on the internet, fate took me to contact Arjun, one of the founder of Bharal Adventure. After emailing for 2 months, I eventually took the trip to EBC. 

Arjun, despite being on the road or enroute to EBC always did his best to reply to my email or whatsapp and patiently responded to my question. He did that in between is trekking whenever he got internet access. This includes giving me a very good price for the trip.

So, I took the trip in Apri to May 2018. I was met by Bharal Team at the Airport and took my hotel. The first impression was really good as the Team really looked after me well. They ensure everything was ok and constantly checking with me if everything was ok. They also ensure that I contact them if I needed assistance.

I met Arjun the night before the trip. He is a very nice, pleasant and polite young man. He is very open to all the situations that I might face including the additional costs that might be incurred such as personal shopping, extra meals and coffees, tipping, etc.

There were 5 of us in a group that trekked to EBC. We met at the airport in Kathmandu heading for Lukla. In Lukla, we were accompanied by 2 porters and 1 Sherpa and a group leader. So, there were 9 of us together as a team.

The trip went very well despite we had to medivac 2 of our team members at Gorekshep. The Team organized the helicopter the night before and constantly in contact with their team member in Kathmandu to ensure our team members are looked after when they reached Kathmandu by helicopter. The rest of us, continued our trip to Cho La Pass and Gokyo Ri Lake.

The view was fantastic. I promise myself, circumstances forbid, that I will be coming back and heading for higher altitudes.

We completed the trip and along the way we built not only friendship with the entire team (including the sherpa and porters) but also a small family that travel and solve the issues together.

When we arrived back at Lukla, we were stranded for 1 day due to bad weather. Our team leader ensured that we eat and sleep well and did his best through his connections to get us on the first flight the following day, despite we missed our original flight and there were many other passengers.

In summary, the trip went very well and we were looked after extremely well by professional team of Bharal Adventure.

My recommendation to potential clients of Bharal Adventure, if you have needs or concerns (including cost) please just be open to them. They are open, respected and young people who place trust and honesty very high in their business dealings.

Perfect Everest Base Camp Trek

Really beautiful vacation - I intensely suggest this! You meander through this long beautiful river valley in the environment of steep slopes that begin out at 15-22,000 feet.Yet, soon enough you can see your destination off far afield away - the every highest mountains in the world. Its as a result marvelous to both be where you are but to as well as see where your journey is to comply to you. Also unbelievable are the 500 year pass sweet, easy, astonishing Buddhist Sherpa villages. And don't forget to fade away into the Tengboche Monastery - what a treat. I'm going protection!
