Lower Dolpo Trekking - 24 Nights/ 25 Days

Full Board Trip Cost:  USD 3295 per person       Group Size: From 2 - 6 Persons

Lower dolpo trekking is an outstanding trek in the isolated area of west Nepal where trek can also be done even in the mid monsoon as it lies in the rain shadow area formed by the Dhaulagiri & Annapurna ranges. The trek begins at the STOL airstrip of Juphal after a short flight from the terrain town of Nepalgunj which is well connected by both road and air from Kathmandu.

Lower Dolpo trekking offers a real adventure trekking on remote and rugged natural unspoiled corner simply beyond the Himalayan valleys across western Nepal. The Dolpo region (both upper and lower area) preserves one of the last remnants of traditional Tibetan culture where the pre-Buddhist Bon-Po religion is still in practice. High mountains including the Dhaulagiri massif to the southeast surround this spiritual sanctuary. The Dolpo region provides the opportunities to visit ancient villages, high passes, beautiful Lakes, isolated Buddhist monasteries and also to experience the vast array of wildlife inhabiting the region in Nepal

Lower Dolpo TrekkingLower Dolpo region has its own charm, people here still leads a primitive life, yet they are friendly. This is also one of few areas where pre-Buddhist Bon Po religion is still practiced. The trail goes over three high passes, the Kagmara La [5115m], Baga La [5090m] and Numa La [5360m] passing the deep-blue tranquil Phoksumdo Lake and finally concludes at Juphal descending the gorge-side path of Tarap Khola.

Dolpo region preserved Eco-system encompasses a wild and wonderful variety of flora and fauna, including Blue sheep, Mountain Goat, Jackal, Wolf and the legendary Snow Leopard. Dolpo is remains a truly isolated corner of Nepal, time has stood still here for centuries as inhabitants of Tibetan stock continues to live, cultivate and trade the way they have done for hundreds of years. The east and south of it is bordered by the Dhaulagiri and Churen Himal ranges and to the west by Jumla district. Lower Dolpo trekking offers you the remarkable and worthwhile experience of lifetime and altitude ranges from 2500m to 5,190m. Dolpo region has given birth of Peter Matthiessen's masterpiece and best selling book' Snow Leopards' and Eric Valli's Oscar nominated movie CARAVAN (also known HIMALAYA) was featured in this isolated Himalayan sanctuary.

Dolpo region, is situated mid western part of Nepal, was opened in 1989 and contains the Shey Phoksundo National Park, established in 1984 to preserve a large portion of the land in this area. It is quite impressive, with many passes as high as 5000 meters. During the trek we will meet Tibetan speaking people, who follow Bon religion, the ancient animistic faith of Tibet and Buddhism. People of dolpo grow buckwheat and barley and tend to large herds of goats, sheep, yak etc. The shining Ringmo Lake, with its unearthly turquoise blue water, makes a trip to this region an unforgettable experience.

Lower dolpo trekking require special permit we have to take flight to Jumlal via Nepalganj. We trek continuous to Shey- Phoksundo National Park before joining ancient Nepal Tibet trade route and enjoy the views of lower Dolpa valley. Eventually you can hear prayer flag fluttering at the top of the pass, and the view opens up dramatically looking east towards the snow peaks of the Kanjiroba and majestic Dhaulagiri range. We soon walk through the pleasant green pastures to the pristine Phoksundo Lake full of crystal deep blue fresh water contrasting with the weathered red and brown hills. On our trek to Dolpa the trek descends to the Jhupal airstrip to end our historical trip of lifetime to Dolpa, the land of mystery, scenery and peace.

A physically fit person can do this trip anytime in April to October. November can be a bit risky as the passes are covered by the snow.

Mountain Sherpa Trekking is the best trekking company- A five-star recommendation to this company.

“They seemed very professional, and they proved to be that, and more. We were treated like kings, like visiting dignitaries. Family could not have treated us better. Upon our arrival, we were garlanded with marigolds; upon our departure, silk scarves were draped around our necks. We hired a guide and two porters, who became like family. Our well-being and satisfaction was their daily concern. When we had a minor problem, we just said to Dorji-our guide. He would make the necessary arrangements. It was worry-free travel. A five-star recommendation. ”
