Overview

Dolpo Trek takes place in a restive area in Nepal, only open to foreign trekkers and mountain climbers since 1989. This area is known for its pristine beauty and rugged charm.
Legends say Dolpa is a Beyul, one of the ‘hidden valleys’ explored by Guru Rinpoche as a refuge for devout Buddhists and those with an exceptionally pure mind. Long time ago farmers and nomads from Tibet settled this hidden land,which now is one of the least habited places on earth.

During your trek
This trek is one of the most adventurous trekking routes in Nepal, giving easy access to the high mountains of the Himalayas without the exposure to high altitude. Yet this Dolpa Trek is not considered strenuous and is suitable for trekkers most parts of the year.

Teahouse or tent
We operate this Dolpa Trek both as a teahouse and camping trek. A customized itinerary with customized travel and accommodation plan is available on request.
