Lower Dolpo Trek

This trek crosses three relatively high passes, good paths are followed throughout and there is no trekking on glaciers. At the edge of the Tibetan Plateau in the Himalayan rain shadow lies Dolpo – the legendary hidden land closed for years to trekkers. The lack of other tourists, the warm welcome given by the hardy Dolpo-Pa and the fascinating insight into the Tibetan way of life makes this an extremely varied and special trek. A unique trek in Nepal, it is ideally suited to both beginners and those who have “been everywhere”. You haven’t until you’ve been to Dolpo.

trip highlights

  • The terrain can be hard and the days long.
  • Hikers on these treks should be in good physical condition and have some previous mountain walking experience.
  • It does not require any technical experience.
  • Steep climbing may be involved, although it is never necessary to use ropes.

“My girlfriend and I have used Unique Path Trekking twice and have found Babu and the team brilliant. We did Everest base camp 2 years ago and recently did the trek to Mera peak. We chose them the second time because of our excellent experience first time around. From the moment we arrived in the airport in Kathmandu until we boarded the flight home we were looked after very well, every aspect of both treks went very smoothly considering the amount of logistics concerned. We stayed in very clean and comfortable tea houses along the route and felt very safe at the high altitudes. We found them very flexible to meet our needs and build an itinerary around what exactly we wanted. Finally I would like to thank our guides on both trips Jeevan and Sonam Sherpa they were both excellent”
