Simbhanjyang: Tourist Destination, Makwanpur

Situated in Mid-North of Nepal, lies a panoramic destination: Simbhanjyang. My thrust regarding reason behind place named Simbhanjyang is quenched with questionnaire with a local personnel Raimajhai Dai:
     - Sim refers to Dampness & flat place located at height or peak of hill is called Bhanjyang. Simbhanjhyang is the highest peak of Makwanpur District with RL 2488 m (from sea level). Special feature of this place is, average temperature is 10 Degree Celsius. Weather of the place is unpredictable; changes frequently between foggy, sunny, light drizzle. Thus, dampness (Sim / सिम-सिम) always exist. And a pond (Rami Dam), located  100 m north is watered from Seepage draining out of the hill. Thus, Simbhanjyang is flat cliff with seepy hill.

Simbhanjyang is 80 KM from South West from Kathmandu & 53 KM from Hetauda. The Beautiful place can be reached with 3 hours ride from Kathmandu (Kathmandu - Naubise - Palung - Daman - Simbhanjyang or Kathmandu - Kulekhani - Chitlang - Palung - Simbhanjyang) and 2 hours ride from Hetauda (Hetauda - Bhaise - Lamidada - Agor - Simbhanjyang).

Every traveler/passenger traveling via Tribhuwan Rajmarga stopby this place and enjoy the cool and fresh environment. The place is also famous for Selroti, as traveler can't wait to satisfy their hunger with Selroti & Tarkari. 

Situated  2488 m from sea level, Simbhanjyang is gifted with snow fall during winter season. The cliff is beautifully covered with snow during end of Falung and beginning of Chaitra. Many tourist are disappointed as snow melts earlier than their arrival. You can follow the ThahaKhabar or local news of Thaha Municipality for information regarding snowfall. A clue: if its raining somewhere else in Makwanpur at end of falgun, obviously its snowing at Simbhanjyang.
