The Upper Dolpo Trekking crosses three relatively high passes following good paths throughout and no trekking on glaciers. Dolpo is situated at the edge of the Tibetan Plateau in the Himalayan rain shadow. This legendary hidden land was closed for years to trekkers. Few tourists visit this area and trekkers are given a warm welcome by the hardy Dolpo. This will give you a fascinating insight into the Tibetan way of life making this an extremely unique and special trek. This trek is ideally suited to both beginners and the more experienced traveller. A special permit is required to trek in this area.
