Dolpo Region

The trek to this region requires special permissions. There are two trek to choose from both involving a visit to the mythical Phoksundo Lake. Dolpo forms a 2100 square miles of plateau inside Nepal’s north-west frontier with Tibet. Much of the region is included in the she Phoksundo National Park. The descendants of the Tibetan migrants have been living in some 35 scatted villages in the region since 10th century.
Upper Dolpo’s remoteness and the restrictions on traveling there has made it one of the few places where the traditional Tibetan culture and the way of living has been flourishing unhindered. It is an area of exceptional natural beauty where flora and fauna are diverse and abundant. It is a splendid trek where one passes through the greatest waterfall in Nepal but very few villages.You can have views of Api Himal, Saipal and fleeting glimpse of Dhaulagiri.
Rara Lake, largest lake in Nepal, is located in the Rara National Park, the smallest national park in Nepal.Of special interest is the snow trout found the lake.
The Lower Dolpo trek is as awe-inspiring as that of upper Dolpo but less demanding on the trekkers endurance and hence more manageable.Here the luxuriant vegetation include the blue pine, spruce,poplar, deodar, fir, birch and others.
