While Trekking one passes through various small local settlements. The journey continues from this point to Phoksundo Lake, a location inside Shey Phoksundo National Park. Churen Himal, Dhaulagiri, and Jumla districts all border the Dolpo region to the east, south, and west, respectively. This region's customs and culture have Tibetan roots. The people are straightforward and kind. In this area, Buddhism under Bonpo is followed, and religion is very vital to day-to-day living.
