Треккинг между Гималаями и Тибетом летом 2013 (проблемы и варианты)
Nepal, Trekking, Himalaya, Dhaulagiri Circuit Trekking
Перебрал уже несколько альтернативных вариантов трека.
Один из них наиболее интересен.
Можно уйти от авиа-перелета на старте трека и пройти большой круг через все Нижнее Долпо.
Мало кто из русских туристов проходил такой полный круг по этим затерянным, между Гималаями и Тибетом, местам.

В этом варианте, конечно, нужно пожертвовать Верхним Долпо, оставить его на то время, когда заработает аэропорт в Dunai, тогда можно пройти отдельно Верхнее Долпо из Dunai и финишировать в Jomsom.
А в этот летний сезон, в условиях, когда аэропорт в Dunai закрыт, трудно пройти сразу и Нижнее и Верхнее Долпо, слишком долгая дорога.
Даже, на одно Нижнее Долпо, получается, нужно порядка 30 дней, которых у меня нет, поэтому думаю, снова над вариантами или над оптимизацией этого маршрута.
Может быть его можно пройти быстрее, дней за 25???
Вот, какой график, пока, я набросал.
Буду рад комментариям и рекомендациям путешественников!

Lower Dolpo Round Trip

This trek truly provides an opportunity to experience the life in the remote highland. Lying in the western Himalayan region, battered by the high winds, arid and dry landscape, unbearable cold in the winter months and almost cut off from the development of the outside world, this region is a living example of a tough struggle against the harsh force of nature. The trail passes through some high mountain passes and scarcely spread local villages, with beautiful mountains towering above in the background. It combines of nature tour together with insightful cultural experience.T here are opportunities to visit ancient Buddhist and Bon po villages, high passes, beautiful lakes, isolated Buddhist monasteries, to observe the vast array of endangered wildlife, including Blue sheep, Himalayan Tahr and Snow Leopard.The medicinal plant, Yarchagumba (Coerdiopsis sinensis) a type of wild mushroom is found in abundance in this region. Extracts from Yarchagumba is believed to significantly improve health and fitness. As you trek through this mystique land you see people collecting Yarchagumba in the fields and meadows.

For this trek you need only the permit for Lower Dolpa is enough.
