Dolpa is a distant region of Nepal and the central point of this area is Shy Phoksundo National Park .

Trekking to Lower Dolpa offers you the remarkable and breaktaking experience of a lifetime.

The Dolpo region is split between two very distinctive areas as Lower Dolpo and Upper Dolpo. Special Permits are required to enter both sections. Trekking in the lower Dolpo region takes us to the popular Ringmo village and further to Shey-Phoksundo Lake (3,600m) through the Dho Tarap village (4050m), a region inhabited by people practicing polyandry and pre-Buddhist religion called "Bon Po" and two high passes of Numa La (5190m) and Baga La (4470m). Shey-Phoksundo Lake is also known as the Blue Lake and contains no aquatic life.
