					              TREKKING IN LOWER DOLPO
                                         (25 days)

An outstanding trek in the isolated area of west Nepal where trek can also be done even in
the mid monsoon as it lies in the rain shadow area formed by the Dhaulagiri & Annapurna
ranges. The trek begins at the STOL airstrip of Juphal after a short flight from the terrain
town of Nepalgunj which is well connected by both road and air from Kathmandu.

Trekking in the Dolpo region has its own charm, people here still lead a primitive life, yet
they are friendly. This is also one of few areas where pre-Buddhist Bon Po religion is still
practiced. The trail goes over three high passes, the Kagmara La [5115m], Baga La [5090m]
and Numa La [5360m] passing the deep-blue tranquil Phoksumdo Lake and finally
concludes at Juphal descending the gorge-side path of Tarap Khola.

A physically fit person can do this trip anytime in April to October. November can be a bit
risky as the passes are covered by the snow.
