On the Way
WE ARE PROFESSIONAL NATURE AND INTERPRETATIVE GUIDES WITH A DREAM: TO UNDERTAKE THE EXPEDITION IN THE MYTHICAL KINGDOM OF DOLPA, IN NEPAL, THAT WE CONSIDER AS ONE OF THE LAST WILD AND REMOTE PLACES ON THE PLANET.
The project symbolically develops like a journey himself
A NUMBER OF PILOT EXPERIENCES ARE GOING TO MARK THE STEPS: EXPEDITIONS AND TRIPS IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE PLANET THAT RISK “DISAPPEARING”, THREATENED BY ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGES OR BY MANS’ IRRESPONSIBLE ACTION.
Dolpo (Ḍolpā in Tibetan language) is a Nepalese land, bordering on the Mustang region to the east and historically known as the “last refuge of Tibet”. It’s part of the mountainous Parbat region, in the middle of the Himalaya mountain system. It’s one of the least densely populated and most inaccessible areas in Nepal.
It is an austere land, characterized by rocks, winds and magnificent glaciers, marked by the deep spirituality of its monasteries.
This territory became famous due to Peter Mathiessen’s bestseller “The snow leopard” (1978), a documentary-book describing his expedition through Dolpo together with the naturalist George Schaller.
