About Lower Dolpo Trek
Regulus recommends Lower Dolpa Trek if you wish to crowd less trekking trail & want to go for remote trekking in Nepal. Lower Dolpa is an almost unexposed area of Nepal and due to this, it is almost isolated from the country as well as the world. But, the positivity of this (being isolated) is that the destination is able to preserve its unique culture and identity, for instance, the Bon Po religion. Lack of infrastructure and developments also pushed this area far away from the reach of modern developments. Trekking in the Dolpo region has its own attraction, people here still lead an unevolved life, yet they are loyal & friendly. Trek to Lower Dolpo still offers the opportunity to meet the people and their style of living almost untouched and unexplored.
