Nepal Sikkim Tibet Bhutan

Dolpo Region

Bordering Tibet, the Dolpo region lies in the Shey Phoksundo national park west of the Kali gandaki valley, behind the Dhaulagiri massif. Dolpo is divided into Lower and Upper regions. Our trekking will take us through both but the main attractions, as you might have guessed, lie in the Upper region. Upper Dolpo is one of the few special trekking regions in Nepal, restricted for mass tourism to preserve its unique cultural and natural heritage. Open to visitors only since 1989 this area is will attract the seekers of adventure, authenticity and true wilderness. Highlights include ancient villages, high passes, beautiful Lakes, isolated Buddhist monasteries and a diverse wildlife including the Blue sheep, the Mountain Goat, the Jackal, the Wolf and the legendary Snow Leopard. Two of our main attractions in the region are the serene turquoise lake of Phoksundo and the 11th century Shey monastery. Isolated from rest of the country, life for the people here has not changed for centuries. Followers of Tibetan Buddhism and ancient Bon Po religion, they mostly depend on farming, yak and sheep keeping and locally collected medical herbs in which Dolpo is very rich. The Oscar nominated film “Caravan" - filmed in Dolpo by Eric Vali, has brought the exotic beauty and cultural wealth of Dolpo to the world. The best time to trek here is towards the end of the monsoon like Sept to November.
