is located inside the Shey Phoksumdo National Park of mid-western Nepal, behind
the Northside of the Dhaulagiri massif towards the Tibetan plateau. Cut off by
a series of very high passes, closed by snow most of the year, Dolpo remains truly
an isolated corner of Nepal. Time had stood still here for centuries, so has the
inhabitants' way, since time immoral. The finely preserved ecosystem encompasses
a wild and wonderful variety of plants and wildlife, including the blue sheep
and snow leopards. A trek through Dolpo to Mustang is an experience not easily
forgotten. We travel in the restricted area of this region from Shey to Lo Monthang.
We will need to have a special permit to do this route, and a government representative
to accompany the party as per rule.

dolpo - Dolpa Trekking
Dolpo is a most remote and least developed district in Nepal.
although a few anthropologists and geographers had explored the region, the entire
district was closed to trekkers until 1989 when the southern part of Dolpo was
opened to organised trekking groups, Shey is still closed to foreigners. One story
cites the reason for closure as the large-scale theft of statues from monasteries
several years ago. It is possible to visit Tibetan-style “inner Dolpo”
villages Tarap and at Phoksundo Lake, but most of the southern part of Dolpo is
a region of Hindu influence.

Trek Permit & tips..
Once inaccessible, The forbidden land of Mustang is now open
to trekkers, and offers an unforgettable experience beyond the Annapurna massif.
Mustang is north of the Annapurna circuit, beyond Jomsom, Kagbani and past the
sacred shrine of Muktinath and the Manang valley. Mustang is the one of the most
unspoiled and least traveled places in Nepal. Being under the rain shadow of the
Himalayas, the area receives scanty rainfall. This makes Mustang dry and arid...very
similar to the adjoining Tibetan plateau. To preserve the natural & social
environment, His majesty's Government has fixed the quota at 1000 heads per season.
This trip begins with a flight from Kathmandu to Jomsom via Pokhara. People wishing
to include the Annapurna region with their trek in to Mustang can start their
trek from Pokhara to Jomsom, passing along the bank of the Kaligandaki river towards
Kagbani. On the route, the trail passes the village of Tangbe, Samar, geling and
Tsarang which is considered to be one of the most interesting places of the trek.
In ancient Tsarang (about 800 years old ), a set of human hands, said to belong
to the site's master builder, remain according to legend the king cut the builder's
hands off to prevent him from constructing another place to rival it.We then arrive
at the walled capital, "Lo-Manthang", dominated by old Buddhist monasteries.
on the return journey, we visit Muktinath, one of the holiest of Hindu temples.
Then we follow the route to Jomsom from where we fly to Pokhara and back to Kathmandu.
