It was really fabulous trip in Dolpo region . And we are very lucky because during this Lower dolpo trek in April, the weather was fantastic and we have very lovely trekking guide & porter. They are very helpful and kind . We have chance to Learn so many Nepali words like (Namaste, Dhanebadh, Ma khusi chhu, Malai timi Man parchha) from our honest guide and porter. Now we are going to recommend to our all friend to this Nepal's far west trek in Nepal and will visit again for Upper Dolpo trek in next year. Thank Ronald & Christina.
