Lower Dolpo Trek

higlights

  • 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.

OVERVIEW

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.

We spent 17 days trekking the Annapurna circuit accompanied by Suresh. We found him to be an extremely competent, kind hearted and friendly companion. He assisted us greatly in all areas and ensured that our time was most enjoyable. We have found Unique Path to be a highly reputable and professional company and we would recommend their service everyone.

had the privilege of using Unique Path trekking to fulfil a life long dream of seeing Mt Everest. We did the Everest Panorama trek, which involved an 8 day round trip from Lukla to Pangboche. Our guide Ram was very experienced and knowledgeable about the area and culture and was very flexible in meeting all of our needs. Our itinerary was modified as we went along so that we could fit more into our 8 days. It was the best experience of our lives and booking over the Internet was easy and without any hassles. The attention and service from all the staff at Unique Path, from the moment we arrived in Kathmandu to the moment we left, was excellent. We sincerely thank Babu and his team for making our trip so enjoyable and hope to come back soon to experience more of this magnificent region.

We just returned from a very beautiful and exciting trek through the Langtang Valley. Lila and his team did a great job in guiding, cooking and taking care of us. Especially when Sonja got injured we were very amazed about the professional handling of this unexpected situation and appreciated the carrying in particular the hot bag, which provide us the most valuable item on the trek. In addition, we had lot of fun with the team be it with games and dance and music sessions. The cooking provided by Suresh and his team was delicious and of an unexpected variety. In summary it was just the Ganjala we missed, the rest was just perfect which was due to a fascinating landscape and Lila and his team. We are already considering to come back and would recommend Unique Path at anyone.

We have just returned from another fantastic trek with Rajendra. This was the second trip back to Nepal and the third trek with Rajendra. We were very lucky and had great weather. The acclimatizing day to thame was nice and the views from the 5th lake above Gokyo were superb. As a guide Rajendra was a very class act. He insured the lodges treated us well, prepared delicious and hygienic food and his knowledge about the mountain and Nepali culture add a new dimension to the trek. I definitely recommend walking out to Phaplu as the trek below Lukla is completely different and a pleasant change. We are already talked about our next trip back to Nepal and I am looking forward to Langtang or a trekking Peak Unique Path Trekking took very good care of us and we cannott wait to return.
