Former Indian ambassadors Ranjit Rae, Deb Mukherjee and Shyam Saran have come here on a 15-day visit. The former envoys said that they have come on a visit as they were attracted by the natural beauty and the biodiversity found in Dolpa.
Former ambassador Rae said he has been drawn to Dolpa as it is a district with rich natural beauty and huge tourism potentials and religious heritages. Raya was at the Goddess Shreebala Tripurasundari Temple at Tripurakot of Tripurasundari Municipality to pay homage. He had visited Dolpa before this also. He said Dolpa has lagged behind due to lack of publicity.
Dolpa is known for the lake Shey Phoksundo, Bala Tripurasundari Temple, lake Jagdulla, the Dho Takshi Valley, the Shey Phoksundo National Park, Yarsagumba and trekking.
The India’s former ambassadors have pointed out the need for road connectivity to Dolpa to bring in maximum number of tourists.
The Goddess Bala Tripurasundari temple has been constructed with Rs 33.3 million support provided by the Embassy of India. The three former ambassadors are scheduled to return Kathmandu after visiting Jufal, Tripurakot,Dunai, Dho Taksi, Shey Phoksundo lake.
