Lower Dolpo trek  vs Phuksundo lake

Lower Dolpo Circuit trek

Lower Dolpo circuit trek is one of the most isolated regions of Nepal, where people still depend upon china for basic goods and the lifestyle of the people is quite similar to the Tibetan lifestyle. Even though Upper Dolpo is very isolated and very adventurous compare to Upper Dolpo but people who are willing to experience the Dolpo and have not a good physical condition, who have short days for travel and who are traveling with family can experience the beauty of the Dolpo by doing Lower Dolpo circuit.

Lower Dolpo Circuit Trek

Lower Dolpo trek and the Upper Dolpo trek both have the same starting point. We need to take a flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj and from Nepalgunj to Jufal the starting point of Dolpo Trek so, as a whole, we have to fly 4 times while doing the Lower Dolpo circuit trek.

Things to know before going Lower Dolpo trek

While doing trekking In Nepal usually people choose a famous destination like Everest Base camp, Annapurna Base Camp trek which is usually very crowded but Dolpo trek offers less tourist traffic where you can actually feel like traveling in the wilderness the peace and the satisfaction you get after reaching the deepest lake of Nepal called Say Phuksundo. While doing the Lower Dolpo trek we use to do camping trek but now people are offering small homestay and even you can share Tibetan shelter available in every camp which adds more adventure of living in the mountains. But there are two passes we need to cross which are more than 5000m so for two to three-night we have to do camping while staying in Numala and Bagala base camp. September, October is the best time to do this trekking because there is a probability of less snow at this month’s because with snow Numala and Bagala pass is quite hard to pass.
