Upper Dolpo Trekking

Upper Dolpo TrekkingDolpo is located inside the Shy - Phoksundo National Park of mid-western Nepal, behind the Dhaulagiri massif, towards the Tibetan Plateau. Cut off by a series of very high passes, closed by snow most of the year, Dolpo remains a truly isolated corner of Nepal. Time has stood still here for centuries as the inhabitants of Tibetan stock continue to live, cultivate and trade the way they have done since time immemorial. The finally preserved Eco-system encompasses a wild and wonderful variety of plants and wildlife, including the blue sheep and leopard. Dolpo Trekking/Trekking in Dolpo region is an experience not easily forgotten. As it is in the isolated part of Nepal, there the nature seems to have remained exactly the same as it was first created- unharmed and unaltered. Now it is preserved for centuries. Blue sheep, leopards and other interesting Himalayan animals are still there in that region. To trek on Dolpo region is quite an experience of life..
