The dry and high mountain valleys of the Dolpo are in the north of the Kanjiroba and the Dhaulagiri Himal. We differentiate between the Outer Dolpo south of the Phoksumdo Tsho – Tsho La – Pingring line and the Inner Dolpo north of it. In Nepal you might also find the names Lower and Upper Dolpo. While visiting this striking mountain scenery you might wonder if you are still on the planet earth. The landscape of the Dolpo region rather contrasts with the rest of Nepal. Even between the various valleys exist significant differences in terms of climate and vegetation. Dolpo makes a fabulous second or third adventure for the returning visitor to Nepal.
