UPPER DOLPO TREKKING

  1. Isolated until 1989, the Dolpo area of far north western Nepal is hard to match for its surreal beauty and stunning charm. Situated at the rain-shadowed side of the Himalaya, the rugged scenery shows dramatic views, compared to similar altitude elsewhere in the kingdom. There are no lush green hills fed by monsoon but a thrilling hardcore landscape, guarded by impressive peaks, striving for heaven. The Dolpo region offers visit to ancient and isolated villages, immortal to time. It provides you with sites of spectacular lakes, authentic Buddhist monasteries and plentiful wildlife (including Blue sheep, mountain goat, jackal, wolf and snow leopard). In case you are seeking for some overwhelming and impressive panorama, Dolpo won’t disappoint you! The route begins by meandering through pine and cedar forest with views of the massive Dhaualgiri range in the backdrop. As the most remote and least developed district in Nepal, this trek is reserved for those with a true sense of adventure.
