On this 28-day trek, we will be taking you to one of the most remote regions of Nepal, Dolpo. This is a unique chance of losing yourself in the magnificent beauty of Nepal.

The Dolpo area is located in the central west of Nepal. Isolated until 1989, the Dolpo area 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 country.

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 visits to ancient and isolated villages that are 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 trek won’t disappoint you.
