Lower Dolpo Trekking 2020 is an outstanding trek in the isolated area of west Nepal where trek can also be done even in the mid monsoon as it lies in the rain shadow area formed by the Dhaulagiri & Annapurna ranges. The trek begins at the airstrip of Juphal after a short flight from the terrain town of Nepal gunj which is well connected by both road and air from Kathmandu but better to by flight .
Trekking in the Dolpo region has its own charm, people here still lead a primitive life, yet they are friendly. This is also one of the few areas where pre-Buddhist Bon Po religion is still practiced. The trail goes over three high passes, the Kagmara La [5115m], Baga La [5090m] and Numa La [5360m] passing the deep-blue tranquil Phoksumdo Lake and finally concludes at Juphal descending the gorge-side path of Tarap Khola.
A physically fit person can do this trip anytime in March to October. November can be a bit risky as the passes are covered by the snow. Nepal Guide info organized tea house and camping both sessions .
