The Dolpo region lies protected under Shey Phoksundo National Park, the park preserves the vast eco-system rich in flora and fauna of the region. This isolated region is sparsely populated with an estimation of less than 5,000 people inhibited in the place. These people are rich in tradition, their religion and language which are very closely linked to the Tibetan Buddhist; actually it falls among the rare area where the pre-Buddhist Bon Po religion is still practiced.
Lower Dolpo Trek starts from the Juphal airport which is the only way of transportation mode that links the Dolpo with rest of the cities in Nepal. From the Juphal airport it takes about three days to reach Dolpo via horse but for trekking you need to walk for a several chain of days one after another taking you to different villages for ending your days.
