Lower Dolpo trekking covered (7,889 sq) Kilometers, it is the largest district of Nepal and yet one of the most spread populated place. The region of this trekking is a rich natural beauty like flora and fauna. We highly recommend this trekking is better if we conduct from September to 15 October and May to end of June. Lower Dolpo circuit trekking is not difficult and not the hard passes, lower Dolpo trekking popular route and important pass Numula and Bagala the highest pass of Lower Dolpo trekking, which contains snow even in the month of August.
