Dolpo to Shey Phoksundo lake a newly modified, non touristic and only one remote lodge trek destination of mid west Nepal, Karnali zone. Dolpo know as little Tibet of Nepal and it is a largest territorial district (By geographical area) of Nepal to Tibet Border. By culturally, naturally ranking this area trek route is still untouched and very less tourist destination. The Phoksundo lake itself gifted by Nature and the people from Dolpo are able to preserve their hundred years old Buddhist culture, traditions and lifestyles which we can touch along the Phoksundo Lake trekking after talking flight from Kathmandu – Nepaljung to Juphal. It is the lake and region where many international filmed and documentary shoots by most popular producer. Caravan or Himalaya is one of the movie were filmed by Eric Valli. It is a moderate trek can be reach by using domestic flight and probably one of the best hiking experience in the moderate zone with the scenic beauty of natural sources. You will able to visit some of peace-full, colorful and yaks caravan in the villages Ringmo, Phoksundo around and in route from Dunai.

Dolpo to turquoise Phoksundo lake trek can be done by organizing camping preparation with the special trekking permit for Lower and Upper Dolpo via Phoksundo lake and National Park. This trek route passes through not only the wonderful mountain forest and covered the Kanjiroba Himalayan range till Mt. Dhaulagiri in west, but also you will reach vibrant Buddhist culture, get knowledge of local traditional life and wilderness.

I did the ABC trek with Bashu and it was just fantastic! Bashu is fluent in English and German and had in depth knowledge on all related questions that our group had on our trek. I will certainly come back to Nepal again and would book another trip with him in a heartbeat!

Last December 2015/January 2016 we made the 18 days EBC trek, together with guide Kumar of Nepal Footprint Holidays and our porter Sudeep. Both great guys!! We had a marvellous time and food and lodges were a perfect arrangement! Chitwan was a hell of a ride, but worth it. Parkland Hotel in Chitwan was 100 % the right choise!

Nepal Footprint might be a small company but nevertheless excellent! 10/10 we would contact them again for the ABC trek Annapurna in the future!!

I went several time in Nepal and I always take Nepal Footprint Holidaz Trek. Everything was amazing every time and I can not advise some one to go with an other agency.

Je me suis rendue au Nepal a maintes reprise, et je suis toujours partie en trek avec Nepal Footlprint Holiday. Thapalyia est super et tres professionel. Je ne peux que conseiller de choisir son agence afin de passer d excellentes vacances.

We selected Nepal Footprint holidays for our Annapurna Base camp Trek during Oct 2016. We had a great time with the very knowledgeable guide there. They really took care of us.
