The Dolpo region is in Western Nepal, remote, wild and considered to be one of the most magical and mysterious places in the whole of the Himalayas.   Dolpo connects the Tibetan Plateau with Nepal and the region borders the Mustang valley, Annapurna’s Kali Gandaki Valley.
The crystal clear Phoksundo Lake is thought to be the most beautiful place in Nepal. The Shey Phoksundo National Park is the largest in Nepal and has lush green valley’s to barren wonderful landscapes and mountain views. There is much wild life .i.e Red Pandas, Jackels, musk Deer, Blue Sheep and the Snow Leopard and in spring many mountain flowers. This truly is spectacular. Due to the dry area we can trek here from April to October.
We fly to neplgunj from Kathmandu for the night before flying onto Juphal which is starting point of our Loowe Dolpo Circuit Trek.
This is a remote off the beaten track and we may trek for days only seeing wildlife and  local Tibetans going about their daily task in the fields. Their may be few other trekkers on this trek.
