The Dolpa to Rara Crossing Shey Gompa 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 Rara Lake, the biggest
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 4949 meter, Nyalu
La (4949M/16236ft). 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.
