Dolpo Region Trekking

 

Juphal Airport DolpoDolpo is located sandwiched between the Tibetan Plateau and Dhaulagiri Himal in the mid-west of Nepal is a remote land, Dolpo, one of the highest inhabited plateau on earth. Geographically a southern extension of Tibet, Dolpo lies within Nepal's boundaries and since 1984 has been the country's largest National Park. The largest district of Nepal but with the smallest population, Dolpo is home to a fascinating race of Tibetan-speaking people. The park sustains an abundance of wildlife, including Musk Deer, Himalayan Blue Sheep and the legendary Snow Leopard. Made famous by Peter Mathiessen's book, 'The Snow Leopard' and more recently by the Oscar nominated film 'Himalaya', Dolpo was virtually inaccessible to western exploration until 1989, and even now it is difficult to trek outside the southern fringe of the district.
