Lower Dolpo Trek

Description:

Trip Cost: US$4658 

Lower Dolpa trek offers a real adventure trekking on remote and rugged natural unspoiled corner simply beyond the Himalayan valleys across western Nepal. The Dolpo region preserves one of the last remnants of traditional Tibetan culture where the pre-Buddhist Bon-Po religion is still in practice. High mountains including the Dhaulagiri massif to the southeast surround this spiritual sanctuary. Dolpo region provides the opportunities to visit ancient villages, high passes, beautiful Lakes, isolated Buddhist monasteries and also to experience the vast array of wildlife inhabiting the region in Nepal. here are two itineraries, both are nice and interesting, you can do it 2 in one and takes quite long time. For both you need to walk around 6 hours everyday to reach the next camp. (see upper dolpo for more Information)
