Dolpo was an ancient Tibetan Kingdom, it is located in the northwest part of Nepal, only opened for trekkers in 1991. The Himalayan range can be seen in all its splendor, Shey-Phoksundo lake(deepest lake) and Ringmo village are set within a beautiful scenic setting. Dolpo can be visited either on summer or Monsoon as it is rain shaded. During the summer flora and fauna are at their best, orchids, edelweiss, campanula and forget-me-nots provide a spectrum of color. The region contains a number of high passes with sweeping vistas in an area that is enriched by traditional Tibetan heritage. There are a number of treks in the Dolpo region from a few days to over a month long, such as “snow leopard Trail”.
