The Dolpo region is on the Tibetan plateau, behind the Dhaulagiri massif. Until 1990, it was a forbidden area, which helped preserve the traditions and way of life that had remained unchanged for many years. In 1990, a UK travel company arranged the first journey to Dolpo, which brought significant attention to the region. The trek is divided into two parts: Lower Dolpo and Upper Dolpo. It takes trekkers through the rugged and stark Tibetan plateau.
Dolpo is a stunning land featuring high passes and the Tibetan people. The hidden trail and its daring itineraries usually pass above 16,500 feet, providing an exquisite journey during the Upper Dolpo circuit. It offers exciting areas, people, villages, valleys, lakes, serene pines, forests, oaks, and rhododendrons. The Dolpo region trek is one of Nepal’s favorites and a unique hike suitable for beginners and expert trekkers.
