Upper Dolpo shelters about 5.000 people, whose lives revolve around Buddhism, barley, and yaks; their villages (over 4.260 meters) are among the highest settlements on earth. It is located in the shy- Phoksundo National park of mid- western Nepal, behind the Dhaulagiri massif, towards the Tibetan plateau, cut off by a series of very high passes and closed by the snow most of the year. A large portion of Dolpo has been set aside as Shey - Phoksumdo National Park, at 3.555 square km Nepal's largest. Meant to preserve a complete example of the trans-Himalayan ecosystem, the park shelters blue sheep, Himalayan black bear, leopards, wolves, and the exclusive snow leopard.

Dolpa remains a truly isolated corner of Nepal. Tibetans emigrated into Dolpo around the 13th century. It once was part of Tibet and considered to be a hidden country or "shas-yul", in the local language. High passes on all sides made travel difficult as it still is today. Much of Dolpo is Bon-po territory, sparsely inhabited by a sect of Tibetan Buddhists practicing a shamanistic predecessor to Tibetan Buddhism. Dolpo is the best-known of Nepal's forbidden northern border regions. The 1989 announcement that the government was opening the region to group treks caused a flurry of excitement.

We need to have a special permit to do this route as some part of this trek is still considered as a restricted area.
