Lower Dolpo Trek


Lower Dolpo Trek

Overview

Lower Dolpo Trek offers an outstanding trekking experience in the remote western region of Nepal. Lying in the western Himalayan region, battered by the high winds, arid and dry landscape, unbearable cold in the winter months and almost cut off from the development of the outside world, this region is a living example of a tough struggle against the harsh force of nature. The trail passes through some high mountain passes and scarcely spread local villages, with beautiful mountains towering above in the background. It combines of nature tour together with insightful cultural experience.

We fly to Jhupal via Nepalgunj and begin our trek through remote locations admiring the beautiful rain shadow landscape of the Himalayas. Furthermore, this is also one of the few areas where the pre-Buddhist Bon Po religion is still practiced. While on the trek, we get to muse at the yak caravans that maintain the traditional salt trade with Tibet. The medicinal plant, Yarchagumba (Coerdiopsis sinensis) a type of wild mushroom is found in abundance in this region. We also cross two high passes - Numa La and Baga La- and reflect on life amidst the tranquil waters of Phoksundo Lake.
