Trip Overview:

The Upper Dolpa Trek is Traverse leads you from the barren landscapes of Dolpa via Shey Gompa into the vast, thick forests around Rara Lake. You visit 2 stunning lakes, the magical emerald Blue Lake and pristine Shey Phoksundo , the dippiest  lake of Nepal.

The trek brings you to Shey Gompa, which is often referred to as the spiritual heart of Upper Dolpo. It’s a magical place, situated at the base of Crystal Mountain. Crystal Mountain is visited by hundreds of pilgrims each year, who make a kora (circuit) around the mountain, Dolpo’s own version of Mount Kailash.

The Dolpa to Rara Traverse is a strenuous hike, with four passes above 5036meter, Charka Pass (5036 M),. Besides you stay above 2000 meters for a long time, which means very cold nights. But the unforgettable landscapes, the views from the passes and the contacts with a very special untouched culture make it all worth it.
