Enclosed by the high Himalayas, the mystical land of the Upper Dolpo trek has been separated from the rest of the world for decades. Which has added to the thrill and charm the destination boasts of. The secluded part of Nepal finds its roots much closer to that of Tibet than the rest of the nation as the culture. The way of life and dialect of the Tibetans are reflected in the local culture and similar traces are seen in the religious practices of the locals. The region also counts as one of the remaining places where the ancient Bon Po religion is still observed.
