The Upper Dolpo and Shey Gompa trek is a not so frequented trek in Nepal as the price is high due to special trekking permits required. This, however, makes the trekking experience very secluded and provides great pristine trails in remote and hidden valleys.

The upper Dolpo is the home of herbs, areas of unspoiled trans-Himalayan culture, Buddhist monuments; un-interrupted local communities. The people of Dolpo have a primitive lifestyle with their own dialect and culture. Dolpo was open to tourists only after 1990. Tourists are required to obtain special permits to access the area.

The culture of people inhibiting this area are one of the best preserved examples of Tibetan Buddhism in the whole world. The unique hospitality and gorgeous landscapes of the area enchants many visitors.

We will be visiting the Shey Gompa (The Crystal Monastery) which is an important pilgrimage site for Tibetans. The Dolpo trek is also known as a pilgrimage trek, created by the Tibetan Monk - Guru Rinpoche. In fact, Dolpo has been like a living library for many researchers who love to explore the beginning of the human civilization and Tibetan Buddhism.

Other highlights on this trek is Shey Phoksundo National Park—the largest national park in Nepal, Shey Phoksundo lake and its crystal waters; rocks, forests, snow capped peaks surrounding - all natural elements contributing to making Dolpo one of the world’s natural hidden gems.

We are looking forward to taking you on a great trek, cultural journey, and amazing adventure in one of Nepal hidden natural gems.

“Adventure Bound and Raman our guide made us this trek unforgattable. I think 20% commission for the price is too much considering the poverty in Nepal.”
