Lower Dolpo Circuit trek

Dolpo trek begins at the same place for both the Lower Dolpo and Upper Dolpo treks. As a result, we must fly from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj, followed by Nepalgunj to Juphal, which is the starting point for the Lower Dolpo circuit trek, so we must fly out of Kathmandu to Nepalgunj.

Things to know before going Lower Dolpo trek

Shey Phoksundo trek

Dolpo region There are many famous trekking destinations in Nepal but Dolpo trek offers less tourist presence where you can actually feel like you are trekking in the wilderness and reach the deepest lake in Nepal called Shay Phoksundo with the feeling of accomplishment. Lower Dolpo trek route used to be camping treks, but now people are offering small homestays and even sharing Tibetan shelter in every camp, which adds to the adventure of living in the mountains. Two-pass over 5000m must be crossed, so we have to set up tents at Numala and Bagala base camps for two to three nights. There is a likelihood of less snow in September and October so it’s the best time to do the trekking because Numala and Bagala pass can be quite challenging with snow in March and Month of the April.
