Lower Dolpo Trekking

Lower Dolpo Trekking is another best trekking in Nepal. Lower Dolpo area, being one of the remotest and least exposed areas of Nepal, is isolated due to the difficult topography. Hence, Lower Dolpo trek still offers opportunity to meet the people and their lifestyle almost untouched and unexplored.

Visit to the Shey-Phoskindo National Park and the “Tarp Valley” are the most interesting and lively places that are enough to overwhelm visitors with the place and people completely uninfluenced by the modernization. The landscape, flora and fauna, Mountain View, rivers, water springs, flat roofed houses, chortens, monasteries and beautiful lakes are other main attraction of this trek.
