Sindhupalchok District (Chautara)
Sindhulpalchok District, a part of Bagmati
Zone, is one of the seventy-five districts of Nepal, a landlocked country
of South Asia. The district, with Chautara as its district headquarters,
covers an area of 2,542km² and has a population (2001) of 305,857.
Although this district is near Kathmandu - the capital city of Nepal, it
is one of the least developed districts in Nepal. The Araniko Highway
links this district with Tibet of China and Kathmandu.
The tourist places of this district are Langtang National Park, Langtang
Himal, Jugal Himal, Panch Pokhari, Tato pani, Gaurati Bhimeswor etc. This
district is a mountainous(hilly) district. People here depend wholly on
agriculture for their survival. Sindhupalchok has produced famous singers
like Raju Lama, Jaynanda Lama, Resham Thapa, Ghamesh Dulal etc, actors
like Shree Krishna Shrestha, Late Shrisha Karki, Jeetu Nepal, Gopal Nepal
(Fiste), Deviram Parajuli(Bhok Lagyo) etc., poets like Chandra Prakash
Neupane, politicians like Pashupati Shamsher JBR, Amrit Kumar Bohora,
Bishnu Bikram Thapa. Rivers like Bhotekoshi,Indrawati, Sunkoshi,
Bramhayani (Balephi) flow through this district. The major towns are
Chautara, Barhabise, Melamchi, Jalbire, Tatopani etc.
This district is easily accessible from Kathmandu but still due to various
reasons it is not well developed and called as remote district. The
corrupt politicians and civil servants who are there just to fill their
stomach but don't think about local people are responsible for this
condition. The educational condition is very bad in this district. For
higher education, those who can afford go to Kathmandu. Otherwise they
have to leave the education and do farming. Many people go abroad like UAE,
Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Qatar etc for employment. The responsible persons
are mute about the welfare of local community.
