Dolpo is situated in the western side of Nepal. It lies in Dolpa district. It is bordered in the north by China. Culture in this region is influenced by Tibet. The region is not so overpopulated. Part of this region also lies in Shey Phoksundo National Park. Many Nepalese filmmakers also shoot in this region. The east and south of Dolpa are surrounded by Dhaulagiri and Churen Himal ranges.
Lower Dolpo trek is one of the most thrilling treks situated in the western hills of Nepal. The trek provides you with adventures with nature and culture. On the way, you can view the mountain ranges, rare plants, landscapes, the Tibetan influenced village cultures. This trek is an ideal trek for the trekkers who love adventures.
This trekking route is remarkable. The lower Dolpo trek is not considered as popular as the other trekking destinations of Nepal. This trek is suitable for both experienced as well as no experienced trekkers. This district is also famous for the deepest lake of Nepal that is Shey Phoksundo Lake with an altitude of 3612m above the sea level. This trek is remote and isolated but adventurous.
The route to Lower Dolpo is not as smooth as the other trekking routes have. There are some rough tracks and at some point, the routes are erased where we will have to make a way by putting logs in between, this can be a new experience to trekkers. The routes here will pass through many small-small streams. You will be climbing upwards to the hills so you can also see the villages downwards and the snow-capped mountain ranges. The trek to Upper Dolpo is a bit expensive in comparison to the lower Dolpo. We will set up camps in most of the places and for this, we have experienced trekkers so you won’t have to face any kind of difficulties.
