Beautiful people not just happen. They endure the sufferings, experience the loss, taste the hatred and find the ways of living in the extreme adverse conditions. They have courage to understand and appreciate life. Most importantly their hearts filled with softness, compassion and deep concern for humanity make them the most beautiful people on Earth.

People of Dolpo live in the extreme remote villages of western highlands of Nepal. Their lifestyle, not at all influenced by modernity is close to the primitive one. Depending on seasonal farming and petty trades for living, the people of Dolpo in a way have accepted poverty. Whatsoever, on such tough circumstances Dolponians have proved to be the most contented people on earth. Though a restricted region for the tourists, Dolpo witnesses few passionate travelers seeking cultural and natural uniquenesss who wholeheartedly pay heavy permit fee to explore Dolpo.

Many travelers to Dolpo write or speak about the highlights of Dolpo which includes magical Phoksundo Lake, elevated ancient hamlets, Crystal Mountain and Shey Gompa. Few appreciate about the people of Dolpo and for rest of them the enchanting landscapes of Dolpo overshadow the memories of hardship of the people of Dolpo.

Here we have a photo essay on Dolponians- undoubtedly, the most beautiful People on Earth.
