Exploring one of the most remote regions of the entire nation, the Shey Phoksundo Lake Trek is a natural and cultural marvel. While the magnificent Dhaulagiri Himalayan Range shines on the horizon, the ancient valley slowly springs to life with the lush green forests.  During the Shey Phoksundo Lake Trek, you will get a chance to experience this culture as you make your way to Shey Phoksundo Lake. Enjoy the beautiful turquoise water and the Himalayas glistening in the skyline, and visit Buddhist and Bon Po monasteries in the region.

This 11-day Shey Phoksundo Trek begins with your arrival in Kathmandu. From Kathmandu, you head to the far western city of Nepalgunj through a short flight. From here, you fly to the hamlet of Juphal from where we begin our trek. A pleasant ascending trail takes us to Dunai for our first night on the go before setting off through the lush green forests toward the hamlet of Chhepka. Trekking to Jharana waterfall, we continue our ascending run headed towards the Tibetan village of Ringmo. You will spend two nights in Ringmo. From Ringmo, with the majestic Dhaulagiri (8167m), Dhaulagiri II (7751m), and other peaks in the Dhaulagiri range on the horizon, we continue our journey to Phoksundo Lake. Phoksundo Lake has a beautiful turquoise color and the sight of the mountain alongside is breathtaking. Explore the nearby Tshowa Gompa, a Bon Po monastery, amid the lush greenery and serene lakeside. After exploration, we return to Ringmo. For the descending journey, we set off through the familiar trail heading back towards Chhepka. The final day of the trek sees us back at Juphal. From Juphal, you will first fly to Nepalgunj and then catch another flight back to Kathmandu thus, ending our journey.
