Upper Dolpo Trekking

The trek to Upper Dolpo was only opened in 1989. The Dolpo region is hard to match for its breathtaking beauty. The trek is 16 days long and during your trek you will be able to have the opportunity to visit the nomadic people and their unforgettable culture. The Dolpo Himalayas offer an endless variety of landscapes, cultures and great people. This unbounded diversity makes it a destination you can visit over and over again. It becomes even more interesting and attracting with every time you return.

Lying in the rain shadow area of the Himalayas, the Upper Dolpo landscape has a similarity of  a Tibetan Plateau instead of the lush, green, monsoon watered hills found at the same altitude in the rest of  Nepal. The people, very pleasant by nature, are of Tibetan descent and follow the pre-Buddhist Bon religion. Their language is closely related to Tibetan. The elevation of the trails is from 1650 meters (5,412ft) to 5136 meters (16,846ft) above sea level.
