Ended up spending 6 nights in Shey Gompa. Such an amazing time with the lama and his wife. She had tears in her eyes when we left. She sent us on our way over another 5,000m pass with a small bag of boiled potatoes and some clumps of raw sugar! Spent two nights in Saldang – magical. We cant get enough of Dolpa, the scenery is spectacular… the people even more so. We are puffing lots over 5000m but apart from that we are great – potatoes are coming out of our ears. Thanks for sat messages! We are high in spirits, there is something very special here.
