The Upper Dolpo region is situated north of the Dhaulagiri Range on the borders of Tibet ,it is a protected area in Nepal as the Shey-Phoksundo National Park lies within its borders.There are some fantastic views of many Himalayan peaks and a huge amount of flora and fauna to be enjoyed, but the view of Kanjiroba peak, Phoksundo Lake and the Dhaulagiri massif three of the many rewarding moments that stand out on this Upper Dolpo trek.
Upper Dolpo is known for its unspoilt natural beauty and even today remains relatively unexplored. Dolpo region is mainly Buddhist in culture with many ancient monuments and temples to be explored. Upper Dolpo can be tracked throughout the year as it is situated in what is called the rain shadow.
As mentioned there are some amazing mountain views as well as some very interesting animals, it is a place where both Himalayan blue sheep and the elusive snow leopard make their respective homes. They are also contained a huge variety of wild flowers along with an extensive range of birds .
Farming in the region is almost impossible it is difficult to grow any sustainable crop here which makes life for local people very difficult. They survive mainly by being involved in the salt trade from Tibet a traditional culture that has continued for generations.
