Ramechhap District is in Nepal.


Ramechhap district lies immediately east of Kathmandu, stretching from the Tama Koshi to the base of the Everest range. With elevations varying from 488 at the Sun Koshi River to Numburchuili peak at 6909 m. Spread before you are rolling foothills dotted with isolated farming communities, crowned by an array of snow peaks that will leave you breathless. Rhododendron forests give way to bamboo groves which in turn vanish into the tantalizingly close himalayan peaks, and the dominant religion changes from Hindu to Buddhist.According to the census of 2011 the total population is 202,646.According to LLRCNepal[2] there are now eight local administrations in the district: Manthali Municipality, Ramechhap Municipality, Umakunda Rural Municipality, Khandadevi Rural Municipality, Gokulganga Rural Municipality, Doramba Rural Municipality, Likhu Rural Municipality and Sunapati Rural Municipality.[3]

  • Trekking in Ramechhap takes you beyond mainstream tourism and allows you to escape the congestion of commercialized trekking routes and get ‘off-the-beaten track’ to experience the REAL Nepal. Ramechhap offers an experience not found elsewhere in Nepal. You'll meet real people from different Indigenous Communities and learn far more about them and their culture than on conventional tours.
  • Activities that are performed for guests, could, in some cases, disappear from these communities which are increasingly influenced by the factors of modernization, urban sprawl and international development. In addition, trekking in Ramechhap increasingly responds to the growing interest among urban Nepali to rediscover, taste, appreciate and maintain contact with their rural roots. It fosters integration while respecting and celebrating local culture.
