Lower Dolpo offers off-the-beaten trek with flight to Juphal and on to the Phoksundo National Park which covers an area of 3555 sq. km. This trek gives you a wonderful chance to experience a landscape and culture far different from that seen in other parts of Nepal. The least complicated trek to undertake, and one of the most popular treks in the west of Nepal. This remote and rugged protected area is attractive both scenically and culturally.

The area is the inhabitant of various rare and endangered species of wildlife such as snow-leopard, blue sheep, ghoral, musk deer, wolf and other wildlife and plants diversity, which can be seen nowhere else in Nepal.
