March 22, 2011 - PRLog -- One World Trekking, a leader in Himalayan adventure travel since 1988, announces a return to Upper Dolpo in Nepal. This unique Nepal travel itinerary, http://www.oneworldtrekking.com/trips/epic-himalayan-journey-series/114-dolpo-and-the-snow-leopard-trek.html, was inspired by Peter Matthiessen’s famous travel book ‘The Snow Leopard’, and takes place September 1 – 29, 2011.

On September 1, 2011, One World Trekking (http://www.oneworldtrekking.com) offers fans and followers of Matthiessen and his snow leopard odyssey the opportunity to embark on a journey mirroring the steps Matthiessen and Schaller took during their 1973 expedition into the remote Dolpo region of the Himalaya. The region of Dolpo in northwest Nepal is rich in Buddhism and offers hikers a chance to witness Tibetan culture as it has been for centuries.

“This is one of the best cultural trekking trips one can do in Nepal,” says Andy Crisconi, Director of One World Trekking. “This trek is both a cultural journey and Himalayan exploration ripe with pristine mountain vistas, high pass crossings and adventurous, challenging territory.”  

For 22 days, travelers will walk through “the last enclave of pure Tibetan culture on earth” into the heart of the least developed district in Nepal. This committing and physically demanding trek crosses five 5000-meter (16,500 foot plus) passes and maintains camp primarily above 10,000 feet. It provides access to centuries-old monasteries and gompas rarely seen by Western eyes, some that even predate the Buddhist religion so devoutly celebrated throughout the region.
