Nepal straddles the Nepali – Tibetan border and is reached via international flights into the Kathmandu International Airport.Internally there are many flights to remote local airstrip.But in the far west on Nepal lies the region of Dolpo situated in the Shey–Phoksumdo National Park separated from the rest of Nepal by the Dhaulagiri massif this is truly an isolated corner of Nepal.To get there requires linking bus and air flights together as well as strenuous trekking in very remote areas and at altitude.
Dolpo trekking is opened to trekking in 1989, the Dolpo region is hard to match for it’s pristine beauty and rugged charm, where one can still have opportunity to meet the nomadic people and their life style almost untouched and unexplored. The people of Dolpo are mainly of Tibetan origin whose lives revolve around Buddhism, barley, and yaks.
The Himalayas offer an endless variety of landscapes, cultures and great people. This unbounded diversity makes it a destination you can visit over and over again. It even becomes more interesting and fascinating with every time you return.
Lying in the rain shadow area of the Himalayas, the landscape resembles that of the Tibetan Plateau instead of the lush, green, monsoon watered hills, elsewhere in Nepal, at comparative altitudes. The people, very pleasant by nature, are of Tibetan descent who follow the pre-Buddhist Bon religion. Their language is closely related to Tibetan. The elevation of the trails is from 1650 meters (5,412ft) to 5136 meters (16,846ft) above sea level.
