Lower Dolpo trek offers outstanding trekking experiences in the remote western part of Nepal. This trek was opened for foreigners in 1982. Since then, the area has become a very popular destination for trekkers. Lower Dolpo has its own unique charm with its remote areas and it was well known as the ‘hidden treasure of Nepal’. The trek crosses over three high passes, Kangmara La (5,115m), Numa La (5,159m), and Baga La at (5,190m). The trek will take us through protected areas and leads us to amazing ‘Phoksundo Lake’ surrounded by attractive flora and fauna. Lower Dolpo is located in karnali region of Nepal and it requires special trekking permits from the migration office because of its remote sensitive geography. The daily lifestyles are very difficult hereabouts because of the parched region but the people of this area are very friendly and humble with faces that know how to smile…

Our Lower Dolpo trek begins after flights from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj and then to Juphal, which is the starting point of the Lower Dolpo trek. The trail passes through beautiful villages, deep gorges, and remote zones before reaching the Phoksundo Lake. The deepest lake of Nepal is Shey-Phoksundo Lake which is situated at a height of 3,611.5m in this region. This trek has become very famous among trekkers since the route opened and this route is very well known in western Nepal. The main attractions of the trek are the ancient Buddhist monasteries, the Tibetan plateau, the gripping lifestyles of the local folks & their absorbing culture.

The people of Dolpo follow ancient Tibetan Buddhism known as the ‘Bon Po’ due to its nearness to the Tibetan border. The Dolpis still earn their income by trading items of salt, cotton, barley and rice in Tibet. We still see traders walking their yaks with tinkling bells laden with such items.

This 18 days trek is designed for trekkers who want to visit Dolpo region but have time constraints and want a shorter program due to the physical challenging trek. This trek has been designed to give you the best of Dolpa in shorter time. We also suggest you plan your trek in between September-December or March-May for the best trekking experiences.
