Lower Dolpo Trekking Quick Booking

Lower Dolpo Trekking is considered perfect adventure for those who are wishing for an off-the-beaten-track experience. Lower Dolpo Trekking was restricted for foreigners until 1990. In fact, Lower Dolpo is one of the most remote and rural region of western Nepal which lies further north from the Dhaulagiri Range in the rain shadow of Himalayas reflected in colorful barren slopes of the mountains. During this trek, we have to pass through the Shey Phoksundo National Park with majestic Himalayan Scenery. Other highlights of Lower Dolpo Trekking are the wonderful yak caravans and some of the oldest and largest Buddhist monasteries in the area. 
 
For Lower Dolpo Trekking, we need to acquire a special trekking permit. We begin Lower Dolpo Trekking from Jhupal where we will experience the high altitude tundra vegetation and the microclimate of Lower Dolpo and Phoksunso Lake with the cold air of glaciers in Kanjirowa massif. We get to explore the deepest Himalayan lakes and yak caravans that have maintained the traditional salt trade with Tibet. Nepal Himalayas Trekking cordially welcomes you all for the rewarding trekking experience in Lower Dolpo Region. You will have great time during Nepal holidays.
