LOWER DOLPO TREK

The entire district of Dolpo is a seldom visited trekking destination. As the majority of trekkers visiting Nepal trek in either the Annapurna or Everest region, the region of Dolpo remains uncrowded.

Dolpo lies behind the Dhaulagiri massif and is protected as the Shey Phoksundo National Park. It was only in 1989 that Dolpo was opened to foreigners. Until then the region was restricted because of it’s proximity to the Tibetan border.
