Giving you a little contrast about the place, well, Udaypur district that currently lies in Eastern Nepal, Province 1 was under Sen dynasy long ago until Shah kings took over from them. The kingdom was then named as Chaudandi and Chaudandigadhi was their capital of the kingdom. It lies approximately at the 2,300 meters of altitude. The climate of there is quite cold that you love it. I thoroughly enjoyed my ride and time there though I visited in the month of Shrawan but, I strongly suggest you to not visit during the monsoon period, as the roads are very slipper and landslides everywhere.
How far it is from Itahari? Well, if you want to go to this place from Itahari, it is approximately 80 KM and that takes nearly 2 hours of continuous ride. If you follow Purbi Madhya Pahadi Lokmarga, you do not necessarily require to reach Beltar as you can take North – South from Birendra Chowk. From Birendra Chowk, it takes around 45 min to 1 hour to reach the Chaudandigadhi Durbar. Roads are completely off from Birendra Chowk, so I don’t suggest you to take cars and scooters at least for this moment.
What can we expect from reaching at the top? Well, a mesmerizing view of Tarai, Koshi Tappu in one side (East) and a spectacular hilly region in another side (West) are so stunning that you can’t blink your eyes at least for a moment. Furthermore, the place is itself a historic place as we can see the traces of ancient walls and pillars.
