The far western region of Nepal is still unspoiled and untouched by foreigners . Time has stood still for centuries where the inhabitants, of Tibetan descent, continue to live as they did long ago. The Phoksindo National Park covers an area of 3555 sq. Km. Full of virgin forests harboring one of the world’s best habitat of snow-leopard, blue sheep, ghoral, musk deer, wolf and other wildlife.One of the prime spots for herb hunting place is the rigged valley of Jumla (2,370m) in far western Nepal known as “Wild West’ because of its remoteness and the difficulty of life on its arid, forested ridges.Most of the treks in the region commence from here and the fastest way to reach Jumla (short take off and landing airstrip) is by flight from Nepalgunj.
Tourists are rare and any trip is certain to be an adventure. There is mixed culture and religion of Hinduism, and further up at upper Dolpa, immigrant Tibetan families live. It is known as the hidden valley of the crystal mountain. Rara Lake which is known as Queen of Lakes is the most beautiful region of far west Nepal, scenic and covering different cultural influence. This area is named after pristine Lake Rara, which is the biggest lake in Nepal. Upper Dolpo was opened for a limited number of tourists in 1991.
Lower Dolpo 5115m. 20-day and Upper Dolpo 5400m. 20-day to 40 days, both involving a visit to the mythical Phoksundo lake, Rara trek 3600m. 12-day and Lower Dolpo through Pokhara 19-day are the main trails of the region. A trek to Mt. Kailash via Simikot into Tibet also can be done from here.
