The Inner Dolpo is located in the central west region of Nepal. It is certainly one of the best trekking regions of Nepal, as it leads trekkers beyond Lake Phoksundo. Lush forests and arid landscapes make up this region. The trek to the interior Dolpo allows hikers to cross the unexplored lands of Dolpo and discover the purity of Tibetan Buddhism widely practiced in the region.
This trip begins with a short flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj, followed by another flight to Juphal. The trek will take you through dense alpine forests and to Phoksundo Lake, the deepest in Nepal. You will cross the Shey Phoksundo National Park where you can meet different animals such as the snow leopard, the blue sheep, the Ghoral, etc. You will then see the Kang-La pass (5350 m) and the crystal mountain. The trails also take you through ancient paths created by the Tibetan salt merchants. You will pass the magnificent valley of Tarap Chu and the village of Dho Tarap. It is a region known as the land of Bon monasteries, a pre-Buddhist religion. Throughout the trek, you will visit many ancient monasteries crossing the valley, an ancient fortress, terraced fields and abundant wildlife.
