The sacred land of Bonpo Buddhism, an isolated part of Tibetan pleatue, the historical route of salt trading and recently famous for Yarsa Gumba and Blueshipp is Upper Dolpo. Lovely dry landscape, many passes and range of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Kanjiroba Himalaya gives you lifetime experience of highland trekking.

 

The Upper Dolpo Trek to Shey Gompa brings you into a mystical land where centuries old Buddhist and Bonpo traditions, interwoven with shamanistic influences, are still an important part of daily life. The villages, gompa’s and people you meet during this trek will leave an unforgettable impression on you.  The landscapes here are even more desolate than on the Dolpa Circuit and the villages even more isolated and pure. The trekking 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. Few travelers have discovered to the heart of this mysterious, inaccessible Dolpo trekking region brilliantly portrayed in Eric Valli's excellent film - 'Himalaya'.
