After visits to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu next, we fly to Jhupal via Nepalgunj and begin our trek through remote locations admiring the beautiful rain shadow landscape of the Himalayas. The people of high Dolpo still practices the nomadic lifestyle whereas, the people of Mustang practiced and enjoyed luxury even in the past because of living in the village that situated in the famous silk route.
Furthermore, this is also one of the few areas where the pre-Buddhist Bon Po religion is still practiced. While on the trek, we get to muse at the yak caravans that maintain the traditional salt trade with Tibet. Lower Dolpo Trek is likely to walk for 6-7 hours, cross steep, hilly terrain and occasional high passes of up to 5500m. You will also be facing high-altitude air with low levels of oxygen.
