The Lower Dolpo Trek is a journey through the pristine land of Shey-Phoksundo National Park where the award-winning, where The Caravan, was filmed. To the east is the Dhaulagiri Range including the world's 7th highest mountain and to the north is the Tibetan plateau. The journey begins with a flight to Jhupal and we will travel to many villages among which are Tarap, Dho, and Tarakot, and through forests of oak, rhododendron (Nepal's national flower) and pine with spectacular views as we climb over three passes, Kagmara La 5115m, Baga La 5190 m and Numa La at 5159 m.

This tour is highlighted by the culture and the views of the mountains, the Phoksundo Lake and the majestic monasteries. Chances are that we may even see various wild animals such as Blue Sheep and Snow Leopard on top of rare vegetal species. Peter Mathiessen wrote his classic book, The Snow Leopard from his experiences in Dolpo.

The Lower Dolpo Trek is a camping tour. The facilities in the region are not capable of supporting a teahouse or lodge to lodge trek. We will have a crew of porters to carry all supplies, including a dining tent, tables, chairs, bathroom tent and personal, comfortable sleeping tent. Our cook will provide quality meals and the evening around the camp will be a cozy time recollecting the wonders of the day's journey and spectacular surroundings over a good meal and a warm drink.
