I Love Trekking Nepal offers  a fascinating trek to the far north west of Nepal at Dolpo, located midway between the Tibetan Plateau and the Dhaulagiri Himal range. Geographically a southern extension of Tibet, it lies within the borders of Nepal, and since 1984 has been the country’s largest national park and conservation area. The park sustains an abundance of wild life including Musk Deer, Himalayan Blue Sheep and the legendary elusive Snow Leopard, as well as being home to a fascinating race of Tibetan speaking people. The hardy highlanders of Dolpo are traders, exchanging barley for Tibetan rock salt and they take their yaks onto the Tibetan plateau during the summer for grazing.

Dolpo, is one of the most beautiful treks in the remote far corners of Nepal, very rarely visited by outsider.
The trip starts from Jhupal village, beginning this wonderful adventure, encountering interesting places, people, villages, valleys and serene forest of pines, oaks and rhododendrons. The trek passes many gigantic mountain ranges and over the Numala pass at 5,400m till we reach the Phoksundo lake at Ringmo village in the "Phoksundo National Park".

At Ringmo, the highlight of our trip  we will have two nights here to enjoy the beauty of the deep blue waters of the Phoksundo lake and the surrounding snow peaks of Kanjibro Himal, with time  to visit the nearby isolated village of Ringmo and its Monastery.
