In the remote north-western part of Nepal lies Dolpo - a pristine and lately discovered land. Abandoned by mountains from all sides, Dolpo is a place that looks so different from other treks of Nepal. Although Dolpo is among the most beautiful regions of Nepal, it still is unable to bring trekkers as much as other popular treks of Nepal do. Understandably, it is due to the remoteness and the effort that one has to put to reach this region.

Also called as “hidden treasure of Nepal”, Dolpo has its own unique charm. In your Lower Dolpo Trek, you pass through high passes like Numa La Pass (5,159m) and Baga La Pass (5,190m). You trek through protected areas into Phoksundo Lake. After spending a day around the pristine Phoksundo Lake, you walk for days through forests and villages alongside rivers to come back to Juphal.

In your 18 days Lower Dolpo Trek with Himalayan Joy Adventure, you get to witness the unexplored area of Lower Dolpo. You will meet Bonpo people and learn about their culture and tradition. The serene beauty of Himalayas, the hospitality of locals, and the breathtaking Phoksundo Lake all combine to make your trek memorable for the rest of your life.

Trip Note


Every day the world is facing a big issue of environmental pollution and in Nepal as well. Our field staffs are quite conscious about environmental pollution at any time and we encourage all. We would suggest to our guest to use boiled water or water purification pills than buying a bottle of water, it helps to avoid plastic bottles which can take long time to disappear. During the trek, if possible you can order same items food in a group which minimizes the fuel used and to make the campfire is almost forbidden. We would encourage being a responsible traveller so, just leaving foot-print on the trail and bring out all non-biodegradable which you had. Upper Mustang is one of the protected areas in Nepal.
