In the Valleys of West Nepal, The newly opened Dolpo region posses a truly unique Tibetan culture. Fortified villages, turquoise lakes, holy mountains and high passes make trekking in Dolpo challenging but very rewarding.
Dolpo is isolated from its neighboring regions for much of the year due to heavy snowfalls. This region is a restricted area and requires a special permit for trekking. It is one of the highest settlements in the world with a stronghold of pre-Buddhist Buddhism, Tibetan Buddhism and Shamanism makes the culture and lifestyle even more interesting.
Dolpo is split into two regions, upper and lower. Trekking in Upper Dolpo is more challenging as logistics such as porters and tent have to be organized, whereas, Lower Dolpo has home stays for accommodation. Trekking in sublimely beautiful Dolpo is wild and rewarding at the same time as it is off the beaten path experience.
