Tour Details

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. This trip guarantees you fun pleasure and entertainment. We always work hard for your satisfaction with good hospitality manner.
