Lower Dolpo Trekking details low dolpo treks
Lower Dolpo region trekking is best known of the many isolated high Himalayan valleys across northern Nepal; Dolpo preserves one of the last remnants of traditional Tibetan culture. Legend says it's a one of the "hidden valleys" created by Guru Rinpoche as a refuge for devout Buddhists in troubled times. Surrounded by high mountains including the Dhaulagiri massif to the southeast and cut off by high passes closed by snow half the year, Dolpo easiest access is from Tibet, where its people emigrated from perhaps 1000 years ago.Upper Dolpo shelters about 5000 people, whose lives revolve around Buddhism, barley, and yaks; their villages (over 4270 meters) are among the highest settlements on earth. A large portion of Dolpo has been set aside as Shey - Phoksumdo National Park, at 3555 square km Nepal's largest. Meant to preserve a complete example of the trans-Himalayan ecosystem, the park shelters blue sheep, Himalayan black bear, leopards, wolves, and the exclusive snow leopard.
Trekking start from Juphal, after two small flights to Nepalgunj on first day and to Juphal on second day. Trekking through nice village in the beginning and through high and remote alpine area and passes later and finally come to beautiful Shey Phoksundo Lake (3600m). From here we will trek back to Juphal again with different route where we catch flight to Kathmandu. The route goes through high passes like Numala & Bagala and very remote area of the country so we are rewarded with excellent view of mountain and virgin Tibetan culture on the way.As this is Nepal's one of the most demanding trek and goes through Numala & Bagala pass and remote area of the country where we should make lot of ascend and descend we therefore recommend to attempt only for experience trekkers.
