Trekking in the Lower Dolpo has its own charm. It is located in the remote and isolated western religion of Nepal offering a true experience of Nepalese life. It is home to the largest national park in Nepal, Phoksundo Lake National Park which boasts Nepal’s deepest lake. Rich in wildlife, flora and fauna we may even see a Snow Leopard. The snow leopard is endangered so we try to protect this area the best we can to promote a viable area for positive wild reproduction. We do need a special permit for travelling to this region which your guide will take care of. Approximately only 5000 people live in this area. Their hospitality is second to none so embrace this opportunity to immerse yourself in culture.
As soon as you enter the Shey Phoksundo National park, you will be trekking alongside the heavenly Shey Phoksundo. Lower Dolpo is a rain shadow area, so you will have an experience of trekking in mountain desert. Shey Phoksundo has remained as the salt trading route to Tibet and the Yak Caravans are peculiar here for the same trade. Also get blessed with the pristine pure nature of this area and the diversity of flora and fauna.
