An outstanding trek in the isolated area of west Nepal where trek can also be done even in the mid monsoon as it lies in the rain shadow area formed by the Dhaulagiri & Annapurna ranges. The trek begins at the STOL airstrip of Juphal after a short flight from the terrain town of Nepalgunj which is well connected by both road and air from Kathmandu. Trekking in the Dolpo region has its own charm, people here still leads a primitive life, yet they are friendly. This is also one of few areas where pre-Buddhist Bon Po religion is still practiced. The trail goes over three high passes, the Kagmara La [5115m], Baga La [5090m] and Numa La [5360m] passing the deep-blue tranquil Phoksumdo Lake and finally concludes at Juphal descending the gorge-side path of Tarap Khola.  A physically fit person can do this trip anytime in April to October. November can be a bit risky as the pass are covered by the snow. 

Mid. western part of Nepal, especially Dolpo region, was opened in 1989 and contains the Shey Phoksundo National Park, established in 1984 to preserve a large portion of the land in this area. It is quite impressive, with many passes as high as 5000 meters. Tibetan speaking people, who follow Bon, the ancient animistic faith of Tibet and Buddhism. They grow buckwheat and barley and tend to large herds of goats, sheep, yak etc. The shining Ringmo Lake, with its unearthly turquoise blue water, makes a trip to this region an unforgettable experience.
