Dolpo is a high altitude culturally Tibetian region in the upper part of the Dolpo district of Western Nepal. In spite of the near inaccessibility of the region and tourism restrictions for the more remote parts, Dolpa is a popular destination for trekking tourism. Here, Upper Dolpo trek is the famous and very challenging trek in the Dolpa region. Dolpo, a land beyond the Himalayas, conjures up visions of mysterious monasteries, snow leopards and blue sheep. Upper Dolpo trek crosses the three high passes of Dolpa region. Far fewer trekkers enter the heavily restricted Upper Dolpo section of Shey Phoksundo National park, in comparison to Lower Dolpa. This trek is also possible during the summer, a period during which flora explodes in its splendor such as orchids, forget-me-not, etc. Lovely Lake Phoksundo is the center of attraction which is famous for its forever changing color of its water. The fascinating insight into the Tibetan way of life makes this an extremely varied and special trek.
