Trip of the day – Phoksundo Lake

Phoksundo Lake

Phoksundo Lake – The other day I was eating at Sherpa House in Golden CO with my favorite Nepalese girl in the world.. and she pointed out a poster with this place on the wall.  This lake is located in the Shey Phoksundo National Park, in the district of Dolpo which is the largest district in Nepal. Phoksundo Lake is not only beautiful but also happens to be the deepest lake in Nepal and is classified as an oligotrophic lake (click here for the definition of Oligotrophic). If you’re interested in seeing more of the Dolpo area you can check out the movie “Himalaya” over at netflix.
