Tarap Valley and Phoksundo Lake

Overview

Dolpo is a region of Tibetan culture of very isolated Bonpo religion in Nepalese territory, cut off from Tibet and Mustang by high passes. These mythical high valleys were long forbidden to foreigners. Their trails were covered by caravans of yaks, as they still traded salt from Tibet for spices and cereals of the middle valleys. Nowadays the rush for the harvest of Yarsagumba – caterpillar parasitized by a fungus – with aphrodisiac virtues in Chinese medicine – to supplant these ancestral activities. Apart from two high passes over 5,000m, this trip will culminate in the discovery of the Tarap Valley and the turquoise waters of Lake Phoksumdo, part of the famous film by Eric Valli “Himalayas the childhood of a chef”.
