Dolpo is the most remote place situated in the Trans Himalayan region of mid – West Nepal. It has many fascinating villages & is still in the land of mystery & peace. The region is about in hosting of trekkers including seventh highest peak in the World Dhaulagiri 8167m.

Dolpo can be said the image of the Shangri-la of Nepal in many aspects. One has to see its landscape filled with natural beauty and experience the remoteness to understand the extreme culture and traditions of the Himalayan people. The nature and culture of this place is rich almost beyond expectation. The high and isolated valleys of Dolpo in northern Nepal are to preserve some of the remnants of traditional Tibetan culture. According to legend, the Guru Rimpoche created Dolpo as a sanctuary for devout Buddhists. Cut off from the world by high mountains and snow-covered passes, Dolpo is the permanent home to about 5000 people whose lives are centered on Buddhism and traditional life linked with the Tibetan history. Our potential destination is to Shey Gompa. But due its wild land, we should take this trip day by day, by taking advantage of prevailing conditions. The distinctive people, architecture and unique life conditions make Dolpo a photographer’s paradise to trap in his camera.
