Trip Overview

In relation to Lower Dolpa, very few people enter this region which is upper section of Tse-Phoksundo National park. Special permit must be obtained to trek in this region. Virgin landscape, Tibetan plateau, dry & cold surrounding are the main attraction of this trek. The northern part is particular, a home for endangered animal like Musk Deer, Snow Leopard, Blue Sheep etc. The area is well known for Himalayan herbs like Yarshagumba (half animal & half plant). The area was a popular trade route between India & Tibet until few years back. A very famous film called Caravan was featured meticulously captured the trading taken place in this region. The inner & upper part of Dolpa is fully influenced by Tibetan culture however, southern part is influenced with Hindu culture & tradition.
