Dolpa or Dolpo is a restricted area thus trekkers are required to obtain special permits to trek in the region. Dolpa offers medium to challenging trails requiring trekkers to cross several Himalayan passes above 5000m. The best time for Dolpa trek is from March till September. There are two possible itineraries for exploring Dolpa: Upper Dolpa Circuit and Lower Dolpa Circuit.
The Upper Dolpo “The Caravan trek” is a 24 days trek and is an extension of the lower Doplo 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.
