Upper Dolpo Trekking

Upper Dolpo TrekkingDolpo region has been permitted for trekkers since mid-1989 and located inside the Shey-Phoksundo National Park of mid-western Nepal. The main attraction of the area is the wild and pristine landscape, which is unlike to most other parts of the Nepal Himalayas. Geographically, it is a part of the Tibetan Plateau and is generally dry, cold and sparsely vegetated. The park and particularly the northern part is home to many rare and endangered animal species including snow leopard, musk deer and blue sheep. It is possible to complete a circuit that takes in the main attraction of the area, Shey Gompa as well as some of the scattered settlements inside the park. A great influence of Tibetan people can be experienced here. Of Tibetan stock, the villagers are skilled traders taking their yak caravans between Tibet and Nepal. So, the villagers are well known to the outside world having been featured in Eric Vailli?s film, caravan that was pictured in this region.
