detailed description

Shey Phoksundo National Park (3555 sq km) of mid-western Nepal is focal point of Upper Dolpo, behind the Mount Dhaulagiri massif, towards the Tibetan Plateau. The part provides good habitat for snow leopard, blue sheep, Ghoral, Himalayan Black Beer etc... This rugged and remote Dolpo region remains a truly isolated corner of Nepal.

Unlike rest parts of Nepal, Dolpo area, shadowed from seasonal rain, is hard to match for its surreal beauty and stunning charm, no where to be found. There we can find many cultural, religious and social life similarities between Upper Dolpo and Tibet. This region is thinly vegetated, dry and only fewer settlements are seen here, but a thrilling hardcore landscape, guarded by pristine snowy peaks. Other remarkable objects seen here are ancients and isolated villages, immortal to time, fabulous lakes, authentic Buddhist monasteries and abundant wildlife etc

Major Attractions: Adventure Trekking in the tented camp is the major attraction of the trek with wild animals / Shey phoksundo Lake national park / Tibetan culture and the monastic lifestyle are the attractions.
