Lower Dolpo Trek (15 Days)

  • Lower Dolpo
  • Dolpo
  • Lower Dolpo

The Dolpo region is located in the isolated area of West Nepal.  This region preserves one of the last remnants of traditional Tibetan culture where the pre-Buddhist Bon-Po religion is still practiced.  A large portion of Dolpo has been set aside as Shey-Phoksumdo National Park, and at 3,555 square km’s, it’s Nepal’s largest.  The national park has been created to preserve the trans-himalayan ecosystem, protecting animals like the blue sheep, Himalayan black bear, leopards, wolves and the elusive snow leopard.

All of this makes trekking in the Dolpo region highly desirable with the opportunities to visit ancient villages, high passes, beautiful Lakes, isolated Buddhist monasteries and also the chance to experience a vast array of wildlife inhabiting this region.

The Lower Dolpo trek is one Nepal’s most demanding crossing over three high passes, the Kagmara La (5,115m), Baga La (5,090m) and Numa La (5,360m), we therefore recommend this trek for physically fit trekkers anytime between April and October.  November can be risky as the passes may be covered in snow.
