Welcome to Bhedetar
Arriving from the hot dusty plains of the Terai, the cool climate of tiny, laid-back Bhedetar makes for a refreshing change. Perched at 1420m, the soaring views over Everest and Makalu are spectacular on a clear day. The village basically exists as a mountain viewpoint for local tourists. Unfortunately the main viewpoint, Charles Tower, has been closed since the 2015 earthquake, and is not expected to reopen until 2019 at the earliest. The town's fortunes appear to have waned accordingly.
