Dolpo is an ancient Tibetan kingdom located in the northwest part of Nepal. It was only opened to trekkers in 1990. The Himalayan range can be seen in its entire splendor. The Phoksondo Lake (deepest lake in the world) with the Ringmo village provides some of the most beautiful Nepalese scenery. The trail follows the ancient Tibetan salt caravan route, across a high pass and through the wilderness in one of Nepal’s most remote and least developed areas. Upper Dolpo offers you a glimpse of isolated high Himalayan valleys, places where time seems to have stopped for centuries, amazing desert landscapes, old Buddhist monasteries, enchanting culture and tradition and a vast array of wildlife. In the Dolpo region the monsoon, created by the sea winds blowing from the Gulf of Bengal, is tempered by the Dhaulagiri range and trekking is therefore also possible during the summer, a period during which flora explodes in all its splendor: orchids, edelweiss, campanules and forget-me-nots. This trek also offers views of Dhaulagiri and the entire Annapurna range.
