Nepalfemaletrek.com now begin our exploration of Dolpo, first ascending the Tarap Valley, to the village of Tarap Gaon, surrounded by chortens and gompas. The hardy people of Dolpo are amongst the world's highest dwellers with the upper villages at around 4,300 metres. One great opportunity that come in a life time to explore the interesting village and lake shores of the Bon Po and legendary gompa situated on the edge of the lake.  The people of Dolpo are traders, exchanging barley for Tibetan salt when they take their yaks onto the Tibetan plateau to graze during the summer.
Dolpo appears in historical records since c. 8th century. In the time from the 6th century to the 8th century the Tibetan Yarlung dynasty conquered most Tibetan-speaking territories. This seems to have caused a southward migration towards Dolpo and the peripheral areas along the upper Kali Gandaki River (Lo sand Serib). In 842 Tibet fell apart, and Dolpo fell under the kingdom of Purang. Purang and Dolpo became temporarily part of the kingdom of Guge in the 10th century, but soon became separate again when King sKyid lde Nyi ma mgon divided Guge among his three sons.
A physically fit person can do this trip anytime in April to October. November can be a bit risky as the passes are covered by snow.
