Dolpo had remained a restricted zone for foreign trekkers until a few years back. With the decision of the Nepal government to open this area for trekking this once elusive area has become a hotspot for trekkers visiting Nepal. Dolpo has retained most of its traditions and cultures. Time seems to stand still for people living in this area. They follow the same centuries old traditions and cultures and wear costumes that have seen no changes with the passage of time.
For breakfast you have the option of porridge, fruit, omelettes, pancakes, toast with fried eggs, or tsampa (Tibetan porridge). For lunch and dinner you have the option of dahl batt (a tasty staple that consists of rice, a lentil soup, pickled vegetables, and curried potatoes), curried potatoes, pasta, spring rolls, lasagne, momo dumplings, or stir fry. It is not recommended to eat meat in the mountains.
If you are flying internally in Nepal (Everest Trek and Annapurna Circuit) there is a 12kg weight limit per person and this is the total weight of both the hand luggage and the checked in luggage.
It is important that you have adequate travel insurance that covers helicopter airlifts whilst trekking. The need for a helicopter is unlikely, but the mountains are remote and not accessible by car. It is essential that you get insurance for the altitude of your trek as some companies only cover treks to only 2000m or 4000m.
