Upper Dolpo Circuit Trek is one of the most remote and unexplored trekking routes in the northern fringe of midwestern Nepal. Having a similar resemblance to that of the Tibetan plateau, Upper Dolpo, also known as Inner Dolpo, is a best-preserved place in its natural form. Untouched by modernization, Upper Dolpo is the least transposed and culturally rich area of Nepal.
Upper Dolpo observes less rainfall due to its trans-Himalayan properties. It lies beneath the Kanjiroba (6,883m) and Dhaulagiri (8,167m) Himalayan range, which blocks the wind that causes rainfall, resulting in an arid climate for most time of the year.
