Nepal Trekking Routes

Far West

Let's start with the statement that the Dolpo region is like no other land in the world; it's even different than all other base camp treks in Nepal. 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.

You will also see some rare birds such as Himalayan griffons, snow pigeons, pheasant, and many butterflies. The trek to Lower Dolpo and Upper Dolpo is equally prodigious for viewing this Himalayan bio-diversity. The inhabitant of Dolpo is called Dolpo, the locals of Tibetan origin. The Tibetan Buddhist followers have a unique language and customs of Bon mysticism.

The spiritual heart of the region is Shey Gompa. The population of the entire region is about 5,000. Inner Dolpo and Upper Dolpo trek of about three weeks will be ideal for immersing yourself in the land's rich culture and Himalayan beauty. It's a trek that will rejuvenate your soul.
