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.
