About Trip

Lower Dolpo Trek is an adventurous journey in the remote area of Nepal, which lies in the rain shadow area. The trail of Lower Dolpo is bounded by the Phoksundo National Park, which covers unique landscape and traditional Tibetan Buddhist communities. The widely spread Poksundo Lake is one among the charming attractions that allures trekkers brilliantly. Crossing the numerous high passes, you get the adventure experience.

Trekking through the Lower Dolpo Trail, it begins from Juphal  and walk through the desert looking landscape. The trail escorts you via Dunai, which is the district center of Dolpo. The higher you walk, the meadows lie on the trail that are the base to hunt the caterpillar fungus. The high passes include Numa La Pass and Baga La Pass cross over the 5000 meters. This anti-clock route descends to the Phoksundo Lake, reflected in the colorful barren slopes of the mountains where the play of hide and seek is a specific fascinating gaze. The tranquil Phoksundo Lake has set this trail one of the best adventurous trail in the world with incredible scenery. Physical fitness and acclimatization are the essential parts of this trek along with the remarkable exploration of the cultural spectacular villages.
