  • Difficulties for Upper Dolpo Trek




The northwest of Nepal, behind the Dhaulagiri range, is already Nepal's most remote area. The trail was only opened for visitors in 1989 and still remains a restricted area. A month-long journey in a land with no houses, no internet, and no electricity is not a joke. The experts have marked Upper Dolpo trek difficulty as "Challenging." And this is among Nepal's hardest and longest trekking trails. That being said, the rewards are astounding! And, you must be aware of the different difficulties you face during this Upper Dolpo trek.

Culture, traditions, and festivals


We can observe three kinds of Culture in Dolpo- Lower Dolpo, Upper, and Middle Dolpo. The lower region is inhabited by the Hindus, while the middle area has a blend of both Hindu and Buddhist people (Bonism and Shamanism). There is a cluster of the Magar people who speak the typical "Kaile" language.
