trip Overview

Lower Dolpo Trek is one of the most beautiful and amazing trekking destinations in Nepal. The 19-day trek gives you full satisfaction with charming villages and natural beauty. The main attraction of this trek is Shey- Phoksundo Lake,  ancient Buddhist monasteries as well as the Tibetan plateau, and many more. This trek has become very famous among trekkers since the route opened in 1989. Trekking in Lower Dolpo offers you a remarkable and worthwhile experience of a lifetime.

Nepal Dream Path Treks start the lower Dolpo trek with a short flight to Jhupal from Nepalgunj. The trail passes through beautiful villages, deep Georges, and remote areas. The people of this region are still practicing the pre-Buddhist Bon Po religion. We get a chance to see endangered animals like snow leopards, Himalayan musk deer, himilayan thar, and many more. The trekkers have to pass two high passes: Numa La (5360 m), the highest point of the trek, and Baga La (5070 m).  From these passes, you can enjoy the panoramic views of the Dhaulagiri range, Norbung Kang, and many other snow-covered mountains. We provide our trekkers with the best service making their trip joyful and unforgettable. At last from Phoksundo lake you have to follow back with the beautiful Phoksindo river on the way we passing charming village then we rich to Juphal. The next day we will fly back to Kathmandu via Nepalgunj.

Dolpo Explore


I went with a friend on a trek to Lower Dolpo Trek between September 20, 2018, to October 14, 2018, with Dolpo Explore and I can honestly say that it was one of the best experiences of my life. Our Guide Damodar was just amazing. A true professional and one of the loveliest person I have ever met and all the staffs are really good, they have always smile on their face though they were carrying 25- 30 kg. They are not a chef but the food was really delicious and they can cook a variety of food. Highly recommend this company for Dolpo trek compare to other companies.
