The Upper Dolpo “The Caravan Trek” 24 days is an extension of the lower Dolpo trek to the Tibetan Plateau and has the same wild, windswept, open spaces characteristic of Tibet. The region was declared a National Park in 1984, making it Nepal’s largest National Park and the only one encompassing a Trans-Himalayan eco-system. The National Park Status has helped preserve not only the culture but also the wildlife Children of the Himalayas…
Dolpo is one of the highest inhabited plateaus in the world. It is an area of roughly 2100 square miles inside Nepal’s northwestern frontier with Tibet, encompassing some thirty villages and monasteries at altitudes of eleven to fifteen thousand feet. Dolpo is in Nepal but, its people – in race, religion and culture, are Tibetan Buddhists descended from nomadic tribes who settled in this area around the tenth century and their religion and culture has survived as one of the best-preserved examples of Tibetan Buddhism in the world. In fact, people living in certain pockets of the region practice Bon Po, an animistic religion that pre-dates Buddhism and which, some believe is actually the precursor to Tibetan Buddhism as we know it. The lower Dolpo is home to the endangered musk deer which may be glimpsed along the trails and to a great variety of birds. Though rarely seen the blue sheep, the Himalayan black bear, snow leopard and the Himalayan wolf are also found in Dolpo.
