Also known as ‘Sailung Danda’ in Nepal, Bhedetar is a place which cannot be missed. It’s actually a small hill station. In the past, long before the Koshi Highway was made, people from hilly regions took Bhedetar as a gateway to ‘Dharan’. It therefore wasn’t originally designed for tourism. It was merely a bus stop for some lunch and breakfast. Later, the stop grew into a town. And it was then that many hotels and restaurants took interest and developed it further to assist tourists for a comfortable stay and good food.
Bhadetar (also spelt Bhedetar) is a small hill top town in Eastern Nepal. It is a stop over place for all the vehicles travelling through this hill town, be it morning tea or afternoon snack.
