Dolpo

2 Trips available

Dolpa is located in the shy- Phoksundo National park of mid- western Nepal behind the Dhaulagiri massif towards the Tibetan plateau which cut off by a series of very high passes and closed by the snow most of the year. Dolpa remains a truly isolated corner of Nepal. Time has stood still here for centuries as inhabitants of Tibetan stock continue to live, cultivate and trade the way they have done since time immemorial. Ba-Yul, the hidden land of Dolpo, was first settled by Rokpa farmers and Drokpa nomads from Tibet in the 10th century.It is one of the highest inhabited places on earth, with scattered fortress-like villages and monasteries nestling amongst mountains of stark, ascetic beauty the finally preserved ecosystem encompass a wild and wonderful variety of plants and wildlife including the blue sheep and snow leopard and magnificent views including MT. Dhaulagiri (8167m.). A trek through Dolpa is an experience not easily forgotten for instance an enchanting trek in this region by Peter Matthiessen gave birth to his masterpiece "Snow Leopards", a spiritual novel and one of the best sellers. This is fascinating and difficult country to travel in. A trek of this region is recommended for groups.
