Land of Desert Himalayas
Dolpo is the amazing destination with the mesmerizing view of desert Mountains, mysterious monasteries, Gumbas and many more which is located at western between Dhaulagiri in the south and Tibetan Himalayan range, Kugung la and Khyung to North. Dolpo region travelling provides endanger wild animals like Musk deer, Snow Leopard, Himalayan Blue Sheep with the well-protected forest of pine, Oak and Juniper. Dho Tarap, are the attraction of human settlement at the highest altitude in the world, Shey Gumba, religiously the most important Gumba in Nepal, and lake Phoksundo, the deepest lake of high altitude in the world where the Tibetan Language spoken people spend their traditional and cultural life. Our treks have to cross two high passes, The Baga-La and Numa-La pass to arrive in Phoksundo Lake which is one of the attractions of our trek. This Dolpo region preserves one of the last remnants of traditional Tibetan culture where the pre-Buddhist Bon-Po religion is still in practice. Besides that Upper Dolpa is one of the few remaining sources of Yarsa Gumba, an exotic half plant, half animal that is considered a powerful aphrodisiac. Every year, in May- June, the Shey Phoksundo National Park opens its doors to the seekers of Yarsagumba. The economy of Dolpa leans heavily on Yarsagumba, called simply “the insect” by locals, and “Himalayan Viagra” by its enthusiasts. The first English subtitled movie “the Caravan ” set in the unreal scenery of Dolpo and directed by Eric Valli won an Oscar nomination for the best foreign language film category.
