Lower Dolpo Trek offers an awesome trekking experience in the remote western region of Nepal. The 18-day trek begins with visits to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu Then, we fly to Jhupal through Nepalgunj and begin our trek through remote locations enjoying the beautiful rain shadow landscape of the Himalayas, which reflects in the colorful barren slopes of the mountains. And there the play of light and shadow is a perpetual fascinating spectacle. In this region, pre-Buddhist Bon Po religion is in practice. The Trek, we get to muse at the yak caravans that maintains the traditional salt trade with Tibet. We also cross two high passes- Numa La and Baga La-and then reflect on life amidst the tranquil waters of Phoksundo Lake.
