Dolpa is largest district of Nepal covering about 5.4% of the country’s total landmass. The central attraction, shey phoksundo National Park, protects endangered animlas like the snow leopard, musk deer and the Tibetan wolf. Shey Phoksundo is the largest and the only trans-Himalayan National Park in Nepal. Trekking to Dolpa is a breathtaking experience. The notable feature of this region are the snowy peaks, ancient villages nestled in desolate areas, rich wildlife, Buddhist monasteries, and wonderful lakes. The tradition of this area are linked to Tibetan culture. The remote Himalayan valleys in Dolpa resemble the Tibetan highlands. The main highlight of Dolpa trek includes Shey Phoksundo National Park, Shey Phoksundo Lake and SheyGompa. The lake is free of acquatic life, and the water is crystal clear. Surrounded by rocks, forests, and snow-capped peaks, the area is renowned as one of the world’s “natural hidden wonders”. The district, despite being the largest in area in the nation , has only vehicle and no road links from other districts. So the only options are either to trek all the way from Beni or Marpha or fly from Nepalgunj or Juphal.
