Jomsom Trek vai Upper Dolpo is one of the famous trek routes of western Nepal. Instead of following the more popularDolpo Circuit trek, the Upper Dolpo to Jomsom trek heads further north to an area very close to the Tibet border and then walks out along the challenging trail to Jomsom giving you a good number of days on one of the most special sections of The Great Himalaya Trail.
Special because Upper Dolpo is a culturally Tibetan region and one of the few places where Bönvillages and gompas (monasteries) can still be found. Bön is the Tibet religion that pre-dates Tibetan Buddhism. Up until 1996 foreigners were not allowed access to this region so the culture has largely been unchanged and unaffected by tourism. Shey Gompa, visited at the mid-point of the trek, is revered as one of the most important spiritual places in Upper Dolpo. Here, twice a year, many pilgrims arrive to complete a kora (or circuit) of Crystal Mountain, this is known as a younger brother of Mount Kailash in Tibet.
