Overview of Lower Dolpo Trekking

Overview

Lower Dolpo Trekking is located in a small sector of Nepal’s western trans-Himalayan region within the Phokosundo National Park. 

The local authorities officially opened the Lower Dolpo for Trekking in 1990 A.D. Dhaulagiri borders the Lower Dolpo region in the South and Tibet in the North. The Lower Dolpo trekking trail passes through Buddhist, Hindu, and ancient Tibetan civilizations. One of the highlights of the trek to Lower Dolpa is exploring Phoksundo Lake, the deepest Lake in Nepal. 

Lower Dolpo Trekking covers;

Lower Dolpo Trekking covers the traditional salt route between Nepal and Tibet. It has three famous passes: Num-La (5160 meters), Kagmara-La (5115m), and Bag-La (5190m). However, per our trekking package, you will only pass through Numa La and Bag-La. 

Boundless Adventure provides the best trekking service in Lower Dolpo. You can get information on the Lower Dolpo Trekking guide and the cost and itinerary for every year. If you feel comfortable, you can WhatsApp us at +977 9851033819 or email us.

The adventurous Lower Dolpo trekking package offers remote hidden valleys and a natural panoramic range of the Himalayas. It is an offbeat trail through a distinct landscape. The lower elevation during your Lower Dolpa trek is 2320 meters, and the higher is 5190 meters from sea level.

Views of Dhaulagiri (8167m) and beautiful lakes, including Phoksundo, are dazzling on your expedition. Trekking in the remote Himalayan valleys is a lifelong experience. The Lower Dolpo Trekking Trail is rich in cultural heritage. The word “Dolpo” refers to a specific area of Tibetan heritage located in the northern portion of Dolpa.

The region is unique and outstanding for its ancient Buddhist monasteries, traditions, remote lifestyles, and festival celebrations. On the way, you frequently meet the Yaks’ caravan.

The trek heads through the National Park with Flora and fauna: Blue sheep, Mountain Goats, Himalayan Black Bears, Musk Deer, and Snow Leopard. However, you must obtain a national park permit to enter the area.

Lower Dolpo Trekking begins from Juphal after a flight over high mountains from Nepalgunj. We head through the terraced fields along the Bheri River and narrow valley, which provides lovely culture to walk in the untouched valleys and incredible landscape. The high passes are technical and challenging, so hiring a guide and prioritizing safety measures is essential during Trekking.

With a highly experienced Trekking team, Boundless Adventure welcomes you to Lower Dolpa Trekking. Please contact us for further information if you need an itinerary or trip price.

Best season

You can undertake the tour to Lowe Dolpo all year long. Thus, the best season for the trek depends on your personal preference. Generally, the Lower Dolpo faces four distinct seasons: 

Spring Season

Spring is one of Nepal’s most popular seasons for Trekking, including Lower Dolpo. Spring starts in March and ends in May. Spring is also a pre-monsoon season after the harsh Winter, making it a suitable time for Trekking. Spring in Lower Dolpo has mild and pleasant weather, warm days, and cool nights. Different flowers, including rhododendrons, bloom at the Lowe Dolpo during Spring, adding thrill to the trek. Skies are generally clear during spring, presenting stunning views of the surrounding Himalayan peaks, including the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna ranges.

Summer season

Trekking in Lower Dolpo in the summer, from June to August, is also ideal. Although summer is a monsoon season in Nepal, the Lower Dolpo lies in a rain shadow and receives less rain than other parts of Nepal during the monsoon. During Summer, the skies are clear, and days are warmer with long day hours, making it ideal for trekking in Lower Dolpo. However, before starting the trek, you should be careful and check the weather forecast daily if you plan to hike in Lower Dolpo during summer. 

Autumn season

Autumn is the peak season for trekking in Lower Dolpo from September to November. The season comes after the monsoon season, making the region’s flora green and beautiful. The skies are clear, and the weather is mild and stable during Autumn, making it one of the finest seasons to trek in Lower Dolpo. Furthermore, the mountain views are excellent during Autumn. 

Winter season

Compared to other trekking areas, Lower Dolpo faces less snowfall during Winter, making it possible to trek during Winter in Lower Dolpo. The Winter falls from December to February and provides a unique opportunity for Trekking. The unique geography of the lower Dolpo, lying in a rain shadow, also makes it possible to trek in Winter. Snow-covered peaks, frozen lakes, and clear skies are the highlights of trekking in Winter in Lower Dolpo. Also, the less crowded areas during the Winter provide peaceful trekking conditions.

Trek through nature and cultural immersion

Recently, I completed the trek to Lower Dolpo with my five friends. The trek took us through ancient villages, dense forests, and high passes with stunning mountain views. The trek was an adventure that went from Adventure to nature’s beauty, along with cultural immersion—walking through Shey Phoksundo National Park and witnessing diverse flora and fauna added to the allure of our trek. The most crucial element that enhanced our trekking experience was the support of Boundless Adventure. The trekking itinerary was well-planned, the guides were friendly and knowledgeable, and ensured our safety. The overall experience with Boundless Adventure on a Lower Dolpo was good. We are planning for the next trek to Annapurna Base Camp with the same trekking agency. I can’t wait to visit Nepal’s beauty once again.

Lifelong experience in Lower Dolpo

My 16-day journey in Upper Dolpo with my wife is a lifelong experience that can never be forgotten. I chose Boundless Adventure for my trek, which became the best. Our trek’s success and enjoyment all credit goes to the team of Boundless Adventure. One of the commendable things about Boundless Adventure’s team was their concern for female safety. They took care of my wife throughout the trek, and that’s one of the notable features of Team Boundless. The trek took us through picturesque villages, including Dunai, Tarakot, Ringmo, and Dho Tarap. Indeed, the trek was challenging, but with the Boundless Team’s support, it was easy and fun. Despite the rugged terrain and long trekking days, the trek was worth it, as I encountered rare wildlife, witnessed stunning sunrise and sunset views over the Himalayas, and interacted with locals.
