The Dolpo trek is literally the high alpine fantasy coming true. Dolpo lies in Nepal's northwest, further down from Dhaulagiri's (8,167 meters) mountain range. The lower Dolpo and Upper Dolpo is Nepal's most extensive region that occupies 15% of the country. However, this dry, desolate valley has a minuscule population and remains the remotest area.
The cascading waterfalls, sacred lakes, mystical mountains, and the wonders of Nature have been unbelievably preserved. Getting into such beautiful land during the Upper Dolpo trek is already a blessing. The trek to the Dolpo region is Shey- Phoksundo National park, which homes the exception beauty of Shey- Phoksundo lake. The abundance of rear Himalayan wildlife such as blue sheep, jackals, musk deer, and snow leopards.
