Dolpa, Nepal

Trek through the hidden valleys of Dolpa or Dolpo, visit the ancient Shey Gompa (The Crystal Monastery), touch the icy waters of  Phoksundo Lake, see yak caravans cross high-Himalayan passes, visit some of the highest settlments on earth like the Dho-Tarap valley; Dolpa will never cease to amaze you. 

It is remote and fascinating, confined by the Dhaulagiri range in the south and east, the mountains Sisne and Kanjiroba in the west and Tibet towards the north. Lake Phoksundo with its turquoise waters is the major attraction in Dolpa.
