Dolpa District is the largest district of Nepal and one of the five districts of the Karnali Zone in Nepal.

 

The district covers an area of 7,889 km² and has a population  of 29,545 (2001)

 

Dolpa  borders Tibet  on the north and northeast, Jumla and Mugu districts of Karnali on the west, Myagdi,
Jajarkot and Rukum on the south and Mustang on the east.

 

A large portion of the district is protected by Shey Phoksundo National Park.
 

 

The name is derived from the 12th century Shey Monastery and the deepest lake in Nepal, the Phoksundo Lake, both of which
lie in the district (Source Wikipedia).
