Lower Dolpa Circuit Trek – I’m looking for others to join this off the beaten track adventure that is far away from the ever increasing crowds of Annapurna & Everest areas. This is remote & fully supported camping trek as there are very few options for alternate tea house type accommodation on this trek. So of course this means that it is not a budget trek, as there are air fares, supported camping costs, and travel insurance is a must and I would not travel with anyone without adequate insurance.
Dolpa lies in the western Himalayan region and is almost cut off from the development of the outside world, this region is a living example of the tough struggle against the harsh forces of nature. The trail passes through some high mountain passes (5310/5170) has opportunities to visit ancient Buddhist, Bon Po villages, Crystal Mountain School and the beautiful Lake Phoksundo. Also the chance to observe the vast array of endangered wildlife, including Blue sheep, Himalayan Tahr and even the Snow Leopard.
