Trekking in Nepal


Upper Dolpo trek and the crystal monasteries of Shey.

Thirty years ago, Peter Matthiessen wrote The Snow Leopard, one of the most acclaimed nature travel books ever written, a peaceful, spiritual account of Matthiessen and zoologist George Schaller's search for the elusive snow leopard of the Himalaya. To date, no recorded commercial replication trek of their journey has been attempted, or offered - until now...

Fans and followers of Matthiessen and his snow leopard experience will have the opportunity to embark on a reconnaissance journey mirroring the steps Matthiessen and Schaller took during their 1973 expedition into the remote Dolpo region of the Himalaya. The trek is both a cultural journey and Himalayan exploration ripe with pristine mountain vistas, high pass crossings and adventurous, challenging territory. This committing and physically demanding trek crosses four 5000-meter (17,000 foot) passes and maintains camp primarily above 10,000 feet. It provides access to centuries-old monasteries and gompas rarely seen by Western eyes, some that even predate the Buddhism religion so devoutly celebrated throughout the region.
