Dharan(धरान) is a major city in eastern Nepal, in the Sunsari district, located between the foot of the hills and the edge of the Terai. It serves as a trading post between the hilly region and the plains of Terai region. It was once the location of a British Gurkha recruitment center, which was opened in 1953.
Dharan is the gateway to beautiful tourist attractions of the eastern hills of the country: Dhankutta, Taplejung, Kumbhakarna Himal, Kanchenjunga, Makalu-Varun National Park, Arun Valley, Tinjure-Milke (Rhododendron Protection Area), Gupha Lake, Hyatrung Fall, and Sabha Pokhari. These too add to Dharan’s importance as a tourist center.
Bhedetar is a developing tourist spot. It is a small hill station just 16 kilometers away from Dharan Sub-metropolis. It is in Province 1 is famous for its unpredictable weather. Most of the time, the place is shrouded in fog which makes this hill station mystical. If you like waterfalls, this is also the gateway to Namaste Jharana which is one of the most famous waterfalls in Nepal. Apart from that, there are other activities that one can indulge themselves in like zipline and paragliding. If these activities do not interest you, you can still get there and enjoy the magnificent view of the mountain and valley below the mountains.
Tinjure-Milke-Jaljale is the confluence of three districts of eastern Nepal – Sankhuwasabha, Taplejung and Terhathum. The place is known for its rhododendrons as you can find over 30 species of flower in the area. Sunrise and sunset from the area are also underrated as it is the place that does not get the visitors it deserves. You also get views of Makalu and Everest along with other mountains from the area. You also have the option to go to the highest waterfall in Nepal, the Hyatung Jharana. The best time to get to this place is during the spring because the place blossoms with flowers.
