Mt. Kanjirowa Mountain Peak is also located in the Far North-West Himalayan region of Nepal. Kanjirowa Expedition is one of the beautiful mountains in the Dolpo region. That creates an impressive wall between Nepal – Tibet border. Our package trip combines an awesome trekking journey towards Dolpo and Shey Phoksundo Lake. It is excellent trekking through off the beaten trail. And it allows us to experience the traditional Tibetan culture (ancient Buddhist and Bon religion). Likewise, it explores Nepal’s largest Shey Phoksundo National Park. Here several endangered wild animals (Musk Deer, Himalayan Blue Sheep and the exclusive Snow Leopard) make their home. One of the featured highlights of the trip includes exploration around the freshwater lake – Shey Phoksundo.

On your arrival in Kathmandu, Tribhuwan International Airport, our representative will welcome you & drive you to the hotel. It’s a free day/evening. You can walk around Thamel for shopping.

Kathmandu is the historical and cultural heart of Nepal and has been a popular destination for tourists ever since Nepal opened its doors to visitors. The city presents a wonderful mix of Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism and Western influence. There will be a guided tour to the largest Buddhist stupa in Nepal Boudhanath and after that to the most popular Hindu shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva- Pashupatinath. We take a tour to Patan or Lalitpur (the City of Artisans), which is 5km away from Kathmandu. We walk through Patan Durbar Square, and delight in the architectural wonders of the Malla era. Mahaboudha Temple, Kumbeshwor Temple, Krishna Temple and Golden Temple are the major attractions at the square.

Today after breakfast in Kathmandu, we take a flight to Nepalgunj from the International airport of Kathmandu. The flight takes about 55 minutes to reach Nepalgunj. Nepalgunj is the Central point to fly to western region of Nepal which is in Banke District. Overnight in Nepalgunj.

We must fly early in the morning to Juphal from Nepalgunj airport because in the  afternoon the weather can be really windy and flights can be cancelled. The airport of Juphal is at an altitude of 2475m. After getting off the plane in Juphal, we continue to drive to Dunai. The road is quite bumpy but it takes only 1 hour to Dunai, but if you choose to walk, it takes around 4 hours of walking.  Dunai is a district headquarters of Dolpo and we can find everything we need here.

We take the left side in the north-west direction of Pugmo river. We stop for lunch after reaching Pugmo village. At Pugmo village, there is a monastery known as Bon Monastery, which we can visit after having our lunch. Then, we continue to follow the flow of the Chugad River till we reach Yak Kharka.

From the base camp we can see magnificent views of the mountain ranges including Kagmara, Lhasharma, Kanjirowa and the beautiful Pugmo Valley. Overnight in Kanjirowa Base Camp.

During the climbing period, we properly acclimatize our body with the high altitude, We also make sure that we are ready to climb the Kanjirowa mountain by testing our skills in nearby ice slopes and get ourselves in ice climbing. During the summit day, we start early in the morning so as to reach the peak before the high winds make our ascent even more difficult. We will be taking the south ridge of Kanjirowa peak as we start our climbing. We make our way through some difficult trails of icy moraines and glacial paths. We can see amazing view of Tibet in the north and Nepal in the south from the summit. After spending some time in the summit, we descend down to Kanjirowa Base Camp to stay for the night.

After leaving Kanjirowa Base Camp, we walk through rocky cliffs until we reach a narrow ridge and then arrive at Yak Kharka. The trail after Yak Kharka is mostly downhill so descend all the way until we reach Pugmo. Overnight in Pugmo.

Then following the trail that changes to the north east side through Phoksundo Khola, we will hike across many breathtaking landscapes, pleasant villages, mountain views and striking and spectacular waterfalls that come through Phoksundo river.  Ringmo is a small village where they practice the religion of Bon and also there is a dedicated monastery in the village. Both the monastery and the village are located at the base of Phoksundo Lake. Overnight in Ringmo.
