Why should you visit Dolpo?
There is no one particular answer to this question. If you want to do something not ordinary or mainstream, then trekking to Dolpo and Upper Dolpo is definitely a way to go. In Nepal, there are plenty of trekking routes, and most of them will be packed with tourists and local trekkers during the peak season, which means you will be paying more for the hotels and other facilities.
Dolpo, with its unparalleled beauty remains unexplored most of the year. You could even trek to Dolpo in the summer, as it’s located behind the Himalayas, it’s not affected by the rainy season.
Apart from the monetary and climatic reasons, another reason would have to be the peace and quiet. Most people set out for trekking trips in order to spend some quiet time and relax outside of their hectic world. But, with the immense crowd, some trekking routes are filled with the single file queue of tourists heading to the same place, which is the opposite of quiet. Also, places like Dolpo allow you to be in touch with your inner self and just set your mind straight and have an amazing time with the locals, where you’ll be treated like a guest more than a tourist.
