Lower Dolpo Trekking

Dolpo Region

Dolpo is one of the wonder lands of the Planet, from Adventure lovers to spiritual seekers, the land of Pre-Buddhist, Shamanistic Bon-Po faiths and inaccessible from the world for decades. All Nepal Hiking is carefully design Dolpo trip to our respected client. We explore deep into Dolpo region, enough acclimatize for several high passes, encounter with wildlife, touchy experience with remote village and their people. Shy Phoksundo is Nepal’s Largest National Park (3555 square kilometer)

Dolpo is Internationally Known zone of its uniqueness, describes in various forms of media worldwide, An Oscar nominated CARAVAN was set in Dolpo and subtitles in English language. The aura of remote upper Dolpo, closed to foreigners for decades and still culturally Tibetan, has been enhanced by Matheissen's 'The Snow Leopard', David Snellgrove's 'Himalayan Pilgrimage' and George Schaller's 'Stones of Silence' among many other travel books. Myth has it that the Guru Rimpoche, who extend Tibetan Buddhism throughout the Himalayas, discovered this hidden land, a 'Be-Yul' or refuge, over 1700 years ago, and it has been inhabited by Tibetan nomads, for over a thousand years.

Dolpo has remained isolated by various causes, fairly due to its difficult to get to location, and somewhat because of the Khampa guerillas using Mustang and Dolpo as a Base shelter during their fight against the Chinese occupation of Tibet after 1959. It has only been open for trekking and tourism since 1989, and then only parts of southern Dolpo were opened. There is still a special restricted area permit needed to trek above Phoksumdo Lake in Shey Phoksumdo National Park, which has only been a viable trekking region since 1999 because of the Maoist actions in this region.
