Mirroring the snowy Kanjiroba massif, the turquoise lake waters look heavenly.Upper Dolpo trek is also another trek that can be done.

The Phoksundu  Tea house Trek is Dolpa’s one and only teahouse trek. This trek is fairly easy as no high passes are involved. The trek starts from Juphal, where the only airstrip in Dolpo is located. The trail passes through wonderful Himalayan forests and picturesque traditional villages. The rivers and waterfalls on the trail are some of Nepal’s most magnificent.
