Dolpo is one of the most interesting trekking destinations of Nepal for many reasons. First of all, with an area of 7889 sq. kilometeres, it is the largest district of Nepal, and yet one of the most sparsely populated. Its topography is very interesting. It contains the deepest lake of Nepal, lake Phoksundo, which also happens to be the deepest travel forumlake of high altitude in the world. Dolpo is one of the few Nepai districts that is behind the Himalayan mountains, due to which it gets very little rain. Hence, most of the hills are bare with little vegitation. Harsh weather combined with high hills makes this area one of the most inhospitable in Nepal, and yet the barren and majestic hills lend it a rare beauty that is absolutely mesmerizing.

The lower Dolpo Circuit Trek is a tough one with many passes of more than 5,000 meters. Travelers can also choose travel foruma less taxing and popular route that takes them through scenic Phoksundo lake and Numa La pass. This trek is less expensive than the Upper Dolpo Trek, because Upper Dolpo Trek charges an entry fee of $500 for ten days of trek per person.

This stretch contains two passes very close to each other. Numa la and Banga La. Hence,there are steep inclines and declines close to each other. Numa la pass is the highest point of this stretch, which may contain snow even in the month of August. From then to Dho Tarap, the road gradually declines. Most of the road is full of tall, barren hills with vegetation.
