Shey-Phoksundo National Park

Listed under National Parks in Nepal.

Pin It

These dense forests of pine, willow, oak, poplar, spruce, fir and birch are the hiding places of the snow leopard and rare blue sheep as well as more common creatures like the wolf, jackal, Himalayan black bear, rhesus monkeys, Himalayan tahr and the creatively named Himalayan mouse hare. In the tops of the trees reside a healthy population of pheasants, ravens, snow partridges and jungle crows. Shey-Phoksundo has an eco system found only in this region and as Nepal’s largest National Park it also includes some spectacular mountains.
