Dolpo trek is located in the north-west region of the country situated along the Dhaulagiri massif. Dolpo is a hidden valley believed to have been created by a Guru Rimpoche -a Buddhist devotee. Upper belt of Dolpo region is dominated by the settlement of Buddhist religious groups who have been able to preserve the unique Buddhist culture, tradition, and lifestyles without an inch of any changes whereas, the lower belt of Dolpa region is populated by Hindu people. It is one of the most remote valleys waiting for being explored. This hidden valley remained isolated for many years, as it was opened for the outsiders only in 1990s. Therefore, still the region preserves the Tibetan culture, which is unique in terms of language, culture and lifestyles. The primitive lifestyle of the Tibetan origin people, the unique landscape, rocky and sloppy hills, the flora and fauna have been the prime attractions of the area and have been one of the most liked trekking destinations in Nepal.
Dolpo trek is restricted area hence this trek requires a special permit. The special permit fee is different for upper Dolpa trek and Lower Dolpo trek. And the restricted area permit is issued only to the Government registered trekking agencies. So the Dolpo trek isn’t possible to the FIT trekkers.
