Upper Dolpo Region (26 Days )
Dolpo area is protected by Shey Phoksumdo National Park of mid-western Nepal, behind the Dhaulagiri massif, towards the Tibetan plateau. Dolpo remains a truly isolated corner of Nepal. Time has stood still here for centuries as the inhabitants of Tibet continue to live, cultivate, and trade the way they have done since time immemorial. At 3555 sq km, this is the country’s largest national park. The Dolpo area is hard to match for its surreal beauty and stunning charm. It is situated in the rain-shadow side of the Himalayas. You can see ragged scenery here compared to the picturesque view at a similar altitude elsewhere in the kingdom. There are no lush and green hills fed by the monsoon but a thrilling hardcore landscape, guarded by impressive peaks, reaching for the heavens. In the Dolpo region, you can visit ancient and isolated villages. It provides you with sites of spectacular lakes, authentic Buddhist monasteries, and plentiful wildlife. This elevation of the trek is from 1650 m to 5136 m above sea level.
