Upper Dolpo Trek is one of the most remote and high arid land. People are mixed of Pre Buddhist and Buddhist with preserved thousands of years old their own traditions. The life of upper Dolpo people is very hardy, they have handful of farms, which grown crops are not enough for 3 months of the year. They are depending on Yak husbandry and salt and grain Trade in Nepal and Tibet. Due to the globalization and world food their salt business decreased, before they use to supply salt in low land of Dolpo. Now another business opportunity Cordyceps Sinenses is golden business for these people.

Crystal Mountain is their holiest Peak and 11 Century Shey Gompa is their holiest monastery. For weeks Upper Dolpo Trek begins flying to Juphal via Nepalgunj. We should spend a night in Nepalgunj.
