ON this trek we cross two high passes- Numa La and Baga La. This passes reflect on life amidst the tranquil waters of Phoksundo Lake. Dolpo is also the place where the movie ‘Himalaya’ shooting takes place by Eric Valli.

During the Lower Dolpo Trek first, we reach to Juphal, via Nepalgunj from Kathmandu. While on the trek Dhaulagiri lies in the west. Trekking north we enter Phoksundo National Park. After a rest continuous on Matthiessen’s original trial, crossing Khang La 17320ft/5279m. Finally, we reach the very remote monastery of Shey Gompa.
