Upper Dolpo Trek features trekking along the ancient salt trading route to Tibet. The trek follows off-the beaten- track leading into remote Buddhist settlement, tranquil Say Phoksundo Lake, exotic landscape, Api Saipal and Kanjiroba Himalayas etc.

Dolpo is located in the Phoksundo National Park of mid-western Nepal, behind the Dhaulagiri massif, towards the Tibetan plateau, cut off by a series of very high passes and closed by the snow land. As it is one of the remotest and least exposed areas of Nepal, and also naturally isolated due to difficult topography, it offers rare opportunities to explore virgin territory.

 Dolpo is occupied by Tibetan origin population harboring unique Buddhist culture along with several monasteries in hight altitude. (gompas).

 

As a part of life style, Polyandry is common in this area and air burial of their dead relatives is the rare culture still in vogue.
