Dolpo trek is touph, 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.

 

High Passes of Dolpo Shey Phoksundo Lake TrekkingMade 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. This trek however, ventures into Upper Dolpo, a land of superb mountain views, visiting the spectacular Phoksumdo Lake and crossing the high passes of Numa La and Baga-La to Dho Tarap. The trek begins at airstrip of Juphal after a short flight from the terrain town of Nepalgunj which is well connected by both road and air from Kathmandu.
