LOWER DOLPA - PHOKSUNDO LAKE TREK situated inside the Shey-Phoksundo National Park of Western Region of the country, Dolpo stands totally isolated. It lies behind the Dhaulagiri range and is cut off from the Tibetan Plateau by high passes. The high valleys of Dolpo are some of the most remarkable in the Himalaya with sweeping views, stretching to the arid Tibetan remote, unspoiled part of Nepal that has remained largely untracked and unexplored. Time has stood still here for centuries as the inhabitants of Tibetan stock continue to live, cultivate and commerce the way they have done since time immemorial.The finally preserved eco -system encompasses a wild and wonderful variety of plants and wildlife, including the blue sheep and now leopard. The view of the Kanjiroba peak, Phoksumdo Lake and the Dhaulagiri massif is one of the most rewarding moments of this trek. A visit to the Phoksumdo Gompa- dedicated to the ancient Bon Po religion is a memorable experience. This trek is for people who are exceptionally fit and prepared to take what Himalayan wilderness trekking has to offer.
