The Dolpo, a remote region in northwestern Nepal bordering on Tibet. Referred to as a wonderland masked in mystery, the Dolpo has been considered the last enclave of pure Tibetan culture in Nepal. Nestled in the mountains, at the altitude of 4100 meters, is a small valley called Tarap. Sheky Phuksundo is the clear and famous lake where the caravan film is made. Its inhabitants lead a precarious life in a harsh climate trying to grow what they can from arid land. In poorly lit windowless houses, the families gather around small fires of yak dung and shrubs. Most of them lead a nomadic life, looking for pastures for their meager livestock. Their diet consists of tsampa (roasted barley flour) and buttered tea. Nowadays, food supplies from Nepalgunj to Dunai by airplane but that’s not enough for the Dolpas. Hunger and freezing winters compel the inhabitants to move to warmer places in search of work on farms. Because of the remoteness and difficult terrain, the people rarely receive the government subsidies.
