Lower Dolpo Trek


Considerably difficult





Opened to trekking in 1989, the Dolpo region is hard to match for its pristine beauty and rugged charm. Lying in the rain shadow area of the Himilaya, the landscape resembles that of the Tibetan Plateau instead of the lush green , monsoon watered hills, elsewhere in Nepal, at comparative altitudes, possibly the last sanctuary of Bon Po, a Shamanistic religion that pre-dates Buddhism, the home of rare Himalayan animals like the shy Snow Leopard, Tibetan Hare and the Himalayan Weasel it falls within the Shey-Phoksundo National Park in western Nepal. Lake Phoksundo, the Blue Lake, and the ancient monasteries in the villagesaroud it are the focal point of a trip to this region. The Kanjiroba Himal provides a panoramic backdrop to complete the experience. Only fully equipped groups organised through an agency are permitted to do this trek.



Lower Dolpo is a hidden treasure and a remote trekking destination in Nepal. The main point of this area is Shey- Phoksundo Lake. Trekking to Lower Dolpo offers you a remarkable and worthwhile experience of lifetime. You can see snowy peaks, ancient and isolated villages, rich wildlife, Buddhist monastery and wonderful lakes. The people of this area are simple and warm-hearted with enthralling culture and traditions. The cultural traditions of this area are basically linked with Tibet. Trekking into this region gives you an exposure to the High and Isolated Himalayan valleys, resembling to the Tibetan highlands. The major highlight of this trek includes Shey-Phoksundo National Park which is the largest National Park of Nepal. Shey-Phoksundo Lake is another highlight of this region. The lake is totally free of aqua life, which the crystal waters clearly explain. Surrounded by rock, forests, and snow- capped peaks, the area has been described as one of the World’s Natural Hidden Wonders. Numala Pass (5115m) and Bagala Pass (5100m) are challenging passes from where you can see excellent views of Dhaulagiri range, Nilgiri, KyangyuRipa, Annapurna range and many other mountains.
