Places to Visit in Nepal

HILLY REGION

The Hilly region, locally referred to as “Pahadi Bheg“, occupies around 64% of the total land of Nepal and lies as a broad belt between the southern plains of the Terai and the Himalayas.

Hilly region

The Mahabharat range fills most of the hill region with its high hills and once dense forests. Below the Mahabharat range of hills lie the Siwalik range which constitute the lower hills and valleys near the southern plains. The Char Koshe Jhadi was once a dense forest that began from the Mahabharat range and ended around the borders of Nepal and India in the Terai. Today little of it remains.

The Pahadi Bheg is the heart of Nepal and accounts for around 57% percent of the total population of Nepal It includes fertile valleys such as Kathmandu and Pokhara, high hills and snow fed rivers that cut across the high hills and valleys acting as the life suppost system of the area. The hills which have been inhabited for centuries, supports nearly half of the country’s population.
