What You Should Know Before Trekking
The optimum seasons to travel to Upper Dolpo, like many other Dolpo trekking route in Nepal, are spring and autumn.
Having said that, early spring and late autumn may not be the best times to hike because of erratic snowfall. Due to this, it could be extremely challenging to cross the high passes at this time of year.
Even when other regions of the country are experiencing monsoon weather conditions, Dolpo receives little to no rain because the majority of the region is under the Dhaulagiri Range’s rain shadow. This area is a high-altitude desert mostly because of this.
Beginning in early August and lasting through the end of October, and frequently even into the middle of November, are the optimal temperatures.
