The Dolpo trek is an exciting 16-day journey to enjoy the beauty and rugged landscape of one of Nepal’s most remote regions. Although this region was opened for trekking in 1989, it has remained untouched and unexplored due to its remote location. Lower Dolpo is situated in Nepal’s Trans Himalayas in an isolated corner of the region rich in Himalayan valleys and similar to Tibet’s highlands.
In addition to excellent views, high passes, lush valleys, and quaint lakes, the Lower Dolpo Trek offers a traditional nomadic culture and lifestyle influenced by Tibetan Buddhism. Trekking in Lower Dolpo is quite strenuous as you have to deal with harsh weather conditions and rugged terrain. However, the rewarding experience of admiring the beauty of the tranquil Phoksundo Lake is the main attraction of the trek.
We will trek for 16 days through the Lower Dolpo region, which the Himalayan Mountains surround. The colorful barren slopes of the mountains reflect the region’s wild character. Throughout our journey, we pass through virgin territory that outsiders rarely explore. On the trail to Lower Dolpo, we cross three high passes, namely Baga La, Numa La and Kangmara La.
In addition to the unique flora and fauna, the Lower Dolpo Trek offers an opportunity to meet simple, helpful, and friendly people who reside in this area. This region is inhabited by descendants of Tibetans still practicing the pre-Buddhist Bon religion. Their way of life is very simple and traditional. They speak a dialect similar to Tibetan.
