Charles Tower

The Terai & Mahabharat Range

Bhedetar is perched at 1420m and the soaring views over Everest and Makalu are spectacular on a clear day. The best views are from this tower named after Prince Charles, who visited in the 1980s. Unfortunately it has been closed since the 2015 earthquake and is not expected to reopen until 2019 at the earliest.
