Recently I did a trek to beautiful Shey Phoksundo Lake in Dolpo via Khalanga, Jajarkot. It is one of the most beautiful lakes you will see and a must-visit place in your lifetime. The color of the lake is unimaginably turquoise blue with bare grey mountains in the background in the north, and green forest and snow-clad mountains in the south. During the trek, I also tried to explore the food culture of the region and eat local foods as much as possible. I recommend all the trekkers/visitors to eat and promote local foods and produces rather than eating packaged foods and drinks transported from somewhere else.
