There is a mysterious Tibetan region in western Nepal. It's called Dolpo. Tibetans live in it trudniacy for centuries by the Himalayan hearse carrying the yaks with salt from Tibet and grain from the south of Nepal. Region was completely inaccessible to foreigners until 1996 and is virtually closed to outsiders today.
Dolpo region is called the last enclave of Tibetan culture, where religion and customs resemble those of Tibet before the Chinese invasion. By 1996, foreigners were banned from traveling to the Upper Dolpo, which helped preserve the cultural uniqueness of the region. To this day, the condition for getting to Upper Dolpo is organized, almost self-sufficient expedition, having a costly permit the Nepalese authorities. Cost to permit the entrance to Upper Dolpo is U.S. $ 500 per person for the first 10 days and a further U.S. $ 50 per person for each additional day.
Dolpo is a region of Tibetan Buddhism, the 700 year old monastery of Shey at the helm. Twice a year, the Pilgrims held a religious pilgrimage "bark" around Crystal Mountain - also known as the younger brother of Mount Kailash in Tibet. Dolpo is also one of the few places in the world where pre-Buddhist Bon shamanic religion is still alive. Region Dolpo was first described in 1961 by David Snelgrove in the book "Himalayan Pilgrimmage". In 1978 he was re-estimated in a book by Peter Matthiessen, "The Snow Leopard" to get publicity recently Eric Vallis film "Himalaya" 1999.
The region is a natural wildlife refuge: the blue sheep, deer, Himalayan foxes, marmots, eagles, vultures, the rarest big cats - snow leopards. Trail from Lower Dolpo, Upper Dolpo through to Jomsom is a part of "The Great Himalaya Trail" (GHT) - routes running through the highest Himalayas of Nepal, from the border with Sikkim in the east to the border with China and India to the west.
