Lower Dolpo 

Lower Dolpo is located inside the Shey- Phoksundo National Park of mid- western Nepal, behind the Dhaulagiri massif, towards the Tibetan plateau. Cut off by a series of very high passes, closed by snow most of the year, Dolpo remains truly an isolated corner of Nepal. Time has stood still here for centuries, as inhabitants of Tibetan stock continue to live, cultivate and trade the way they have done since time immemorial.

The finely preserved ecosystem encompasses a wild and wonderful variety of plants and wildlife, including the blue sheep and snow leopards. This trek to Lower Dolpo begins at Juphal and follows the trail to Dunai, the first camp then proceeds to Tarakot, way up to Shering Gompa (4440m) which is the highest point of this trek, passing through the Saldang and Shey Gompa village, we descend to the beautiful Phoksundo Lake, which is a part of the Shey Phoksundo National Park. The trek concludes with our descend to Chepka village and then to Juphal, from where we fly back to Nepalgunj and then to Kathmandu.
