story01Humli people, like Nepalis across the country, are incredibly diverse. About 85% of the 56,000 people who live in this sparsely populated district are Hindu. Buddhists, some of whom practice polyandry, occupy the highlands. According to anthropologist Carol Dunham:

Dolpa is one of the most remote places in the Himalayas, a land where mysticism and spirituality play an important role in people’s lives. It’s a photographer’s paradise, one where you can express emotions through pictures, and where every picture has a story to tell. Dolpa’s vast landscapes and rich cultural heritage provide for some stunning pictures. The region allows you to play with light and colors, and bring out various interpretations of the same images. The trek to Shey Gompa is very picturesque and filled with changing sceneries: snowy peaks, ancient and remote villages, lush green vegetation, arid landscapes, rich wildlife, lovely Buddhist monasteries and the breath-taking Phoksundo lake.
