Karnali (Nepali: कर्णाली अञ्चल   , is one of the fourteen zones located in the Mid-Western Development Region of Nepal. The headquarters of Karnali Zone is Jumla.

Shey Phoksundo National Park Shey Phoksundo (with Phoksundo Lake-- the deepest lake of Nepal), famous for the Snow Leopard, is Nepal's largest Park with an area of 3,555 km². Rara National Park surrounds Rara Lake -- at 10.2 km², Nepal's largest lake -- known as the "Pearl of Nepal".

Karnali is divided into five districts:
