Nepal is a place of abundant mysterious and forbidden land for the perfect off-the-beaten trekking in Nepal activities. Among such mystic trails of Nepal trekking, the Lower Dolpo Trekking is also one of the fascinating 18 days adventure trip packages offered by Peregrine Treks & Expedition. Lower Dolpo Trek is the display of mountain and rural area people and their unique culture. When they have a festival, they present their cultural show.

Lower Dolpo Trekking has many natural and people-oriented attractions for the trekkers or outsiders to observe. The famous French Film Director Eric Valley documented the film called Caravan. This helps to promote the beautiful landscapes of this enthralling place of Nepal. This place is also living proof of the existence of the ancient Buddhist Bon Po religion. They are practiced nowadays, too, which could be another anthropologically significant part of your trekking in Lower Dolpo Trekking.

The Lower Dolpo  Trekking is characterized by passing two high passes consisting of Nepal’s highest located lake Shey Phoksundo. This lake’s clear and untainted water would act as a catalyst for you to ignite the passion and creativity in your life. The flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj, then again from Nepalgunj to Juphal from when the trekking starts on the trail.

The continuous meeting of the Yak transporting goods and the remote villages. It could spark the feeling of being close to nature and the ancient lifestyle inside your soul. Once you have reached Shey Phoksundo Lake, then if you have enough time for up to 28 days, you can embark on the journey towards Upper Dolpo Trek.
