Gorgeous Days On The Dolpo Trek

September 29, 2015

Adam and the Dolpo Team are enjoying the relatively low altitude for the night. Adam laughed and said “we are all the way down to 15,000 feet.” They will have another day of “lower altitude” before heading back up and through the next pass.


Today on the trail, they visited the Monastery in Saldang and the Yuthok Norlung Dolpo Hospital. The paintings in the Monastery had recently been redone, taking 12 people 2 years. The detail in the paintings was noticeably more precise than others we had seen, and Adam asked Dhandup about this. He said that the painter who oversaw the project was Tenzin Norbu Lama. Tenzin is a well-known artist who Adam had contacted before his first trip to Dolpo. Adam wanted to see his work in Kathmandu.
