Lower Dolpo takes 15 days is thickly forested with conifers and cut by gushing rivers. The trek starts with a flight to Juphal via Nepalgunj and visits the villages of Ringmo to culminate at the Shey Phoksumdo Lake. The return journey crosses two high passes of Numa La and Baga La and brings you to the Bon Po practicing people of Tibetan origin to Tarap village and follows the Tarap Khola to Dunai for the flight back to Nepalgunj and then to Kathmandu.
Dolpo is one of the highest inhabited plateaus in the world. It is an area of roughly 2100 square miles inside Nepal’s northwestern frontier with Tibet, encompassing some thirty villages and monasteries at altitudes of eleven to fifteen thousand feet. Dolpo is in Nepal but, its people – in race, religion and culture, are Tibetan Buddhists descended from nomadic tribes who settled in this area around the tenth century and their religion and culture has survived as one of the best preserved examples of Tibetan Buddhism in the world. In fact, people living in certain pockets of the region practice Bon Po, an animistic religion that pre-dates Buddhism and which, some believe, is actually the precursor to Tibetan Buddhism as we know it. The lower Dolpo is home to the endangered musk deer which may be glimpsed along the trails and to a great variety of birds. Though rarely seen the blue sheep, the Himalayan black bear, snow leopard and the Himalayan wolf are also found in Dolpo.
