|DEPARTURE/RETURN LOCATION||Kathmnadu /Kathmandu|
Dolpo had remained a restricted zone for foreign trekkers until a few years back. With the decision of the Nepali government to open this area for trekking this once elusive area has become a hotspot for trekkers visiting Nepal. Dolpo has retained most of its traditions and cultures. Time seems to stand still for people living in this area. They follow the same centuries old traditions and cultures and wear costumes that have seen no changes with the passage of time.
The trek follows a route that goes past enchanting forests of pine, oak, rhododendron and juniper filled with wild flowers and animals that are listed as endangered. The mountain vistas on this trail are magnificent and breathtaking and the rivers and brooks so pristine and pure. We cross a high pass the Numala Pass at 5360 meters and visit the jewel of Dolpo, The Shey Phoksundo Lake.
This trek is strenuous but adventurous and rewarding because of the enchanting natural vistas and rich cultural experience that it offers. This trek makes for an unforgettable experience!
