Lower Dolpo is another perfect destination for trekking in Nepal. It is located in the remote mid-western region of Nepal. It often overshadowed due to its difficult topography. The traces of vehicles are rare as no road connection has been able to connect Dolpa. Trekkers were introduced with this trekking route in the late 1980’s. Since then trekkers from many places come Dolpo region to explore the untouched Himalayan culture and exclusive human civilization of high altitude. This place also protects Bon religions of traditional Tibetan culture.
The major attraction of Lower Dolpo Trek is Shey Phoksundu National Park and the sacred Shey Phoksundo Lake. Shey Phoksundo National park is the largest and only trans-Himalayan national park in Nepal which is the habitat for many endangered birds and animals. Shey Phoksunda Lake is also the deepest and second largest lake of Nepal. The spectacular turquoise lake makes it look as if it is a huge gem in the earth.
The landscapes, flora and fauna, mountain views, rivers, water springs, flat roofed houses, chotens, monasteries and beautiful lakes are the other main attractions of this trek.

During your trek
After the Kathmandu valley sightseeing and trek preparation, we fly to Nepaljung and then take another flight from Nepaljung to Jhupal, where we begin our trek. We trek continuously from Jhupal to Shey-Phoksundo National Park before joining ancient Nepal Tibet trade routes and enjoy the view of lower Dolpa valley. In Shey Phoksundo National park you can see a great example of the well-preserved ecosystem of plant and wildlife. During the trek you can view the snowy peaks of the Kanjoroba and Dhaulagiri range before we reach the majestic and crystal clear blue Shey Phoksundo Lake.
