With the exquisite fusion of pristine natural beauty and rugged charm, it is difficult to find any place that can match its charisma. Inhabited by nomads, visitors can have a firsthand experience of their ways of life here. Filled with endless varieties of landscapes and culture, the unbounded diversity makes Dolpa a destination you’d never get tired of visiting time and again. It would only get more and more interesting.
Lying in the rain shadow area of the Himalayas, this region has trails from 1650m (5412ft) to 5136m (16846ft) above the sea level. Dolpa’s landscape resembles that of the Tibetan plateaus instead of the lush, green and monsoon watered hills elsewhere in Nepal at similar altitudes.
The people here are very pleasant in nature and most of them are of Tibetan descent and hence the language is closely related to Tibetan as well. Among other Tibetan influences, the religion of the people here is the pre-Buddhist religion of Tibet, “Bon”.
