The Lower Dolpo Trek is one of the most adventurous treks in Nepal. The Dolpo region is only open for trekking since 1991. It is situated in mid west Nepal, behind the Dhaulagiri massif, towards the Tibetan plateau and on the north side of the Himalayas. The region is also known as a rain shadow area, which means there is (almost) no rainfall even in the monsoon season. This trek offers you the natural embodiment of high passes, rare flora and fauna, great sceneries, a beautiful lake, isolated Buddhist monasteries and the traditional Tibetan cultural heritage. The elevation of the trail goes from 1650 meters to 5238 meters above sea level.
