mt-everest

The Dolpa region, designated as Shey Phoksundo National Park, is the most remote district in Nepal situated in the Trans Himalayan region of mid-western Nepal Dolpa, known as “Ba Yul” or the hidden valley has fascinating villages and is still a land of mystery, scenery and peace. Dolpa is divided into two parts. The lower part of Dolpa has Hindu influence, while inner Dolpa ispopulated by Tibetans. A 14 days trek in the lower Dopla takes you to Ringmo and beyond – Phoksundo Lake at 3600m also known as the Blue Lake contains no aquatic life. The trek crosses two high passes of Baga La (5070 m) and Numa La (5190 m) into Dho Tarap village(4040 m) a region inhabited by people practicing polyandry and pre-Buddhist religion called “Bon Po”. The trek follows Tarap Khola to Dunai andends with a flight to Nepalgunj.
The trek in Upper Dolpa crosses Sheula pass from Phoksundo Lake to the legendary Crystal Mountains to Shey Gompa(4200 m) a Buddhist monastery and further to Samling Gompa, a Bon Po monastery. This region has a long aura of mysticism about it.

The return trek visits Saldan Gompa to Do Tarap and back to Dunai (2150 m)
