About Upper Dolpo

Situated North East of Nepal the Dolpo area is vast and covers 15% of Nepal. Hidden away by the lofty Tibetan plateau in the North, Dhaulagiri in the East (the world’s 7th highest mountain at 8,167 m), and mountain passes to the South, this large area is one of Nepal’s hidden gems.

The beautiful and remote Dolpo trail traverses a variety of landscapes ranging from fertile rice terraces and eye-catching mountainous terrain to barren landscapes. Highly influenced by Tibetan traditions, the Dolpo trek also introduces Tibetan style villages and Bön monasteries. If looking for both a cultural and beautiful trekking experience, Dolpo is a great option. 

While the Dolpo trek is truly beautiful, the mystique and uniqueness of the region was probably further made known by 'The Snow Leopard', the award winning novel written by Perter Matthiesssen in 1979, not to mention 'Himalaya', the 1999 Oscar nominated movie. 

Being situated in the Shey Phoksumdo National Park and only being opened up for tourism in 1989, the remote area of Dolpo is a must-visit for any trekkers looking for a cultural trek of a lifetime.
