Upper Dolpo Trek

Upper Dolpo Trek is a highly saturated and Tibetan-influenced culture in the upper sector of Nepal’s Dolpo district. Nepal still retains some untouched wilderness along this trek. The area is part of the sedimentary Tibetan Tethys zone, which provides a barrier to a semi-arid climate. It receives less than 500 millimeters of rainfall annually. Thus, Nepal is a desert with a cold climate.
