While most people visit Nepal in spring and autumn, Nepal's monsoon season(June through mid-September) is ideally a good time to go trekking if you prefer fewer tourists and are interested in exploring remote areas. So if you're still looking for a last-minute epic monsoon adventure, consider a trek to Upper Mustang or Upper Dolpo, which fall in the rain shadow, or Gosaikunda in Langtang for the Janai Purnima, a full moon celebration in August with shamans. Alternatively, get a head start with planning your peak-season trek and consider timing it with a festival like Dashain / Tihar or Everest Mani Rimdu  in November.

Upper Dolpo Transverse

Upper Dolpo is located beyond Dhaulagiri mountain range and falls under the rain shadow area of western Nepal.  This region is one of the most remote and isolated areas in Nepal. Rare species of animals such as snow leopard and blue sheeps are found in this area. You will be crossing several 5000-meter high passes on the trail from Jomsom. En-route you will discover villages rarely visited by outsider. These people live with deep faith in Buddhism and tantric rituals.

You will be amazed to see the raw beauty of the land and innocence of the people. You will experience your travel as if you are in a time machine going back in time. There is nothing except you and the nature. The deep blue sky, snow covered rolling high mountain and deep river valley and seemingly endless trail continues to dominate the journey. Villages at Sangda and Charkabhot are the only reminders of people other than you.
