On the Tibetan Plateau, in the great Himalayan rain shadow, lies Doplo, a legendary Ba-Yul or ''Hidden Land '', geographically cut from the rest of the world by a barrier of high mountains,deep gorges and thick forests.This trekking route passes many gigantic mountain ranges - Annapurna,Dhaulagiri and Kanjiroba , to name but a few passes through Lower Dolpo, at one time a small kingdom in its own right . More recently we have repeated the route,with variations and our groups see very few other Europeans so they are enthused greatly about the wild remoteness,the stunning mountain scenery and the fact that the local people had that innocent friendliness peculiar to people who live in excessively remote mountainous regions.
