Lower Dolpo Trek is a real adventure trekking on the remote and rugged natural unspoiled isolated high Himalayan valleys across northern Nepal. Dolpo region lies in the rain shadow area further north from the Dhaulagiri range. This region was opened for foreigners only in 1990. This region still preserves centuries old Pre-Buddhist Bon Po religion. According to legends Guru Rinpoche created this hidden valleys as a refuge for devout Buddhists in troubled times. You can see snowy peaks, ancient and isolated villages, rich wildlife, Buddhist monastery and wonderful lakes. You pass over three high passes, Kagmara La (5115m), Baga La (5090m) and Numa La (5360m) and the deep-blue tranquil Phoksundo Lake. Lower Dolpo trek begins after flights from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj to Juphal. From Juphal we follow the Tarap Chu river passing through Tarakot, Laini, Nawarpani and to Do Tarap where we acclimatize for a day. The trail goes through some terraced fields at the beginning, deep georges, suspension bridges, pine trees and higher up we find Juniper bushes,wild roses and classic dry Himalayan valleys. Do Tarap is a small villages inhabited by Bon Po and Chaliba tribes, few Tibetans and Magars. We can visit some famous local monasteries and enjoy scenic view of peaks and know about local culture, customs and tradition. Then we ascend to cross Numa La pass which offers mesmerizing view of barren mountains of Dolpo to Dhaulagiri. After crossing Baga La pass where you can have beautiful views of surrounding landscapes and snowcapped peaks of Kanjirowa range we descend to Ringmo and hike to Phoksundo Lake. Full of crystal deep blue fresh water, Phoksundo Lake is a gem of this region. Finally, we descend to Juphal airstrip to end our jouney of a lifetime.
