Ramechhap District is in Nepal, immediately east of Kathmandu. It stretches from the Sun Koshi river to the base of the Everest range, with elevations varying from 488 m at the Sun Koshi to Numburchuili peak at 6,909 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.
