We reached Battar, Nuwakot after a couple of hours ride from Kathmandu. The night is spent there as we prepare for the big day. Journey to Rasuwa for orientation of Vidyalaya. The trip is going good so far with plans and thoughts for the program tomorrow.. we rest.
Situated in the north of Kathmandu and sharing a border with Tibet, Rasuwa is home to the Tamang people, a culture with strong Tibetan influences. Some regions of Nepal are more vulnerable to trafficking due to their proximity to Kathmandu, poor educational opportunities and low economic status.
Origin of its name had begun as ‘Rasowa’ which is believed to be derived as a combination of two Tibetan words ra (meaning: lambs) and sowa (meaning: grazing) as it was famous for its lamb and grazing lands. And later people started to call it Rasuwa. Steeply varying territory and plenty of natural blessings make Rasuwa a famous tourist destination in Nepal. Famous sightseeing places like: Gosaikunda Lake, Mt. Langtang, and one of the famous hot springs in Nepal (locally called: Tatopani) are located in the district.
