Dhorpatan Dolpo Trek is located at the rain shadow of the Himalayas in the western region of Nepal. It is one of the best places for natural beauty, rich in herbs and flora and fauna. You will encounter different culture along the way, such as Magar, Tibetan, Gurung, and Brahmin. Dhorpatan Hunting Reserve and Shey Phoksundo National Park, both located in this region are home to a vast wilderness.
Dolpo is protected by Shey-Phoksundo National Park. It lies to the north of the Dhaulagiri Range bordering the Tibetan Plateau. Here one can find a well-preserved eco-system of plants and wildlife, including the blue sheep and the elusive snow leopard. The marvellous view of Phoksundo Lake, Kanjiroba peak and the Dhaulagiri massif are some of the most rewarding moments of this trek. A visit to the Phoksundo Gompa – dedicated to the ancient Bonpo religion, local to Dolpo and Tibet, can be a memorable experience.
