Dunai to Do Tarap village Trek

The Dunai to Do Tarap route lies in the beautiful and remote mid-western region of Nepal. The trail winds steeply up an uninhabited river valley through snow leopard territory and on to the beautiful Shey…


For more experienced trekkers, this trek can be combined with a trip up to the legendary Crystal Mountain and Shey Gompa in the Inner Dolpo Region. The trip can either be made straight up and down to Shey Gompa, rejoining the Dunai-Tarap route, or from Shey Gompa over several high passes to the Mustang town of Jomsom.
