Upper Dolpo

Imagine a hidden land where environment is pristine and the culture and lifestyle dates back for centuries. The trip into Dolpo in remote west Nepal will capture your imagination where fortress-like villages are scattered around the landscape of the majestic Himalayas and pristine Phoksumdo Lake. Buddhist monasteries remain nestled in the mountains with ascetic beauty. The entire district remains the living museum of the medieval Himalayan life. Closed to foreigners until 1989, Dolpo was brought to light after Peter Matthiesen’s ‘The Snow Leopard’, Snellgrove’s ‘Himalayan Pilgrimage’ and Erick Valley’s Oscar nominated movie ‘Himalaya’.
