Upper Dolpo

$dataTitle

Overview

The least developed region of Nepal is still un-couched by roads, where the old Tibetan culture is well preserved is situated at North Westerly parts of  Nepal. Legend says it's a one of the "hidden valleys" created by Guru Rinpoche as a refuge for devout Buddhists in troubled times. Surrounded by high mountains including the Dhaulagiri massif to the south-east and cut off by high passes closed by snow half the year, Dolpo's easiest access is from Tibet, where its people emigrated from perhaps 1000 years ago. This is home of many Tibetan speaking groups of people, who are either adherents of Buddhism or the Bon religion. Until the end of the 18th century Dolpo was a part of Tibet and was under the influence of the neighboring kingdoms and principalities of Lo-mangthang and Jumla. It then became a protectorate of Lo, today's district Mustang. After the unification of Nepal at the beginning of the 19th century the connection with Lo was interrupted through the establishment of the border between Nepal and Tibet. The opening of Nepal for tourism in 1951 was the cause of changes for many regions of Nepal. Dolpo was closed again in 1974, since Khampas from Tibet (Tibetans fighting for a free Tibet) hiding in the area repeatedly caused conflicts with the Nepalese army. In 1989 the southern areas Poksumdo, Tichurong and Tarap were reopened for tourism. For trekkig it we need special permit.
