The Lower Dolpo Trek offers an outstanding trekking experience in the remote western region of Nepal. The 18 day trek embarks with visits to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu. Then we take flight to Jhupal via Nepalgunj and begin our trek through remote locations with the view of beautiful rain shadow landscape of the snowcapped mountains reflected in the colorful barren slopes of the mountains where the play of light and shadow is a perpetual fascinating spectacle. Furthermore, this is also one of the few areas where the pre-Buddhist Bon Po religion is still practiced. While on the trek, we get to muse at the yak caravans that maintain the traditional salt trade with Tibet.
