Earth : Asia : South Asia : Nepal : Ramechhap
Ramechhap District is in Nepal.
Ramechhap district lies immediately east of Kathmandu, stretching from the Sun 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.
