Classis Upper Dolpo Trek

Since yak is one of the most popular domestic animals in the upper region of Dolpo. Yak is used for different purposes like transportation, ploughing field, riding and sometimes they are used to open the trail when it is covered with snow. In the high region without yak the life is not only tough but nearly impossible. So the people have very close relation with yaks in other words yak are the family member.

Dolpo, which is bordered by the Tibet Autonomous Region, China in the North has business relationship since long. Once in a year there will be traditional exchange market in the borderline. Previously the people of upper Dolpo used to take the food stuff such as maize, wheat, buckwheat, millet etc. brought from the lower part of Dolpa they go to the border line and barter with salt. When the winter begins again with the salt brought from Tibet the people go to the lower region to barter with the food stuff.

As the time changes every moment, new ideas and creations take place and the people adopt them without any hesitations for survival. Eventually, the trend of the people of upper Dolpo has also changed a lot. Since the importance of Yarshagomba (Cordisep Cynensis) came in knowledge of the general people they became more concerned in trading of it. Since this is the natural product which is found wild in the pastures, doesn’t need any pre-investment for the cultivation. Its high market value is increasing every season as consequently the people have started to think that it is the main source of income of the family. Therefore, now a days people take this Yarshagomba to barter for modern food stuff and things of daily uses instead of salt.

Yak Caravan Trip is designed in such a way that the whole trip will go with yaks local traders. It is scheduled according to the movement of traders. So the trip will go all along the way that the traders use and will make camps where they rest, in close coordination with them. The trip will take you up to the borderline from where the traders enter into the business venue and we wait for their return and come back again with them. So being with these local people with the caravan of yaks provides the real taste of this upper Dolpo’s traditional trading. Anyone can imagine what a wonderful trip will it be? To make a journey within the spread of Upper Dolpa region, adapting the varied biodiversity on the arid highland in typical traditional way. How will you dream? Make your dream come true joining the Yak Caravan Trip.
