Upper Dolpo trekking is a most beautiful remotest trek in the north-west region of Nepal. Being situated between the Tibetan plateau and the Dahulagiri Himalayan range, it is linked closely with the frontier of Tibet that is inhabited by the people of Tibetan origin and culture.

Dolpo trek provides you an opportunity to come across some unique monasteries adopting original Tibetan religion Bon that is much older than the Buddhism and the Shey Gompa (Crystal monastery) which is the most important pilgrimage of Tibetans. Since 1984, Dolpo has been the largest national park and conservation of Nepal. The park has been a home to Musk Deer, Himalayan Blue Sheep, the legendary elusive Snow Leopard and many other animals. The park contains the famous deepest Phoksundo Lake in Nepal, located at an altitude of 3,600m above sea level.

Nepal’s first English subtitled movie 'The Caravan' (The Himalaya) nominated for the Oscar Award was shot in Dolpo area.

As this is one the restricted areas of Nepal, a special permit for the visitors is required that costs US$ 700 per person for 10 days. To extend this trip more than 10 days one needs to pay additional US$ 70 per day/per person.
