Destination Ramaroshan

Welcome to the pristinity……
RamaRoshan region which lies in Accham district, the far western part of Nepal, is famous for its 12 wetlands and 18 flatlands. Locals believe that to explore all the 12 lakes and 18 flatlands one need at least 3 days. The whole areas altitude variation varies from 2050m to 3792m above sea level. 
There have been various stories regarding the name of RamaRoshan. Some believes that 'Rama' and 'Roshan' are the two flatlands within a distance of half an hour hence the name RamaRoshan has been derived. On the other story, Rama is a name of different deities and Roshan means the panoramic places and since the deities used to come to that region, the name RamaRoshan has remained.

RamaRoshan lies 42 kms away from the district headquarter of the Achham district, Mangalsain and is easily accessible by gravelled motorrable road. The area itself lies in the middle of 3 districts, Accham, Bajura and Kalikot. The area is a habitant of Nepal’s national bird Danphe, other various birds such as Munal, Kaalij, Dhukur etc. and different wild animals such as tiger, deer, wild boar, beer etc.

The major attraction of RamaRoshan is the flatland and the pond itself. There are huge flatlands adjoining the hills and lakes from where one can go on a hike to nearby districts. A perfect day start with a hike to the pond itself and exploring around the hills. Except for the birds and animals, the area is covered by different varieties of flora and some huge streams.
