Dolpo Bound

Sep 15, 2016

So excited to be returning to far Western Nepal, the land of Inner Dolpo, to trek and work alongside the Nomads Clinic medical team offering care to villagers in remote areas lacking the most basic services.  This is a 24/7 endeavor, always keeping one eye on stories, stars, simple moments and deeper perspectives.  Out on the trail, a hundred miles from the nearest road, life becomes elemental – the sun, the moon, the wind, animals and being a part of the network of helping hands every step of the way.  To dos give way to the widsoms of traditional living and we seem to be walking back in time.  I’m looking forward to returning to this treasured land, North of the Himalayas.

“Twelve years before, on a visit to Nepal, I had seen those astonishing snow peaks to the north; to close that distance, to go step by step across the greatest range on earth to somewhere called the Crystal Mountain, was a true pilgrimage, a journey of the heart. Since the usurpation of Tibet by the Chinese, the Land of Dolpo, all but unknown to Westerners even today, was said to be the last enclave of pure Tibetan culture left on earth, and Tibetan culture was the last citadel of “all that present-day humanity is longing for, either because it has been lost or not yet been realized or because it is in danger of disappearing from human sight: the stability of a tradition, which has its roots not only in a historical or cultural past, but within the innermost being of man. . . .”  -Peter Matthiessen, The Snow Leopard
