Upper Dolpo- Shy Gompa Trek

Upper Dolpo trekking area lies in the far western part of Nepal. If you want to go here you will need a special permit because the Upper Dolpo is a restricted area. Not so many tourists have been in this area. This area is physically hard because of the high passes.

Upper Dolpa Trekking is another remote hidden destination where Nepal's most tranquil and natural beauty is still unexplored. The home of herbal land, unspoiled trans-Himalayan culture, Buddhist monuments, and unique human civilization at high altitude is worth a visit. We can see nice landscape and villages. You could see perfect Mountain View from here. Upper Dolpa Trek offers the deepest lake of Nepal "Shey - Phoksundo" and biggest waterfall of Nepal "Suligard water fall".
