Okhaldhunga is a district of Nepal. Here two major festivals are held in the year namely Mani Rimdu (Lama Dance) during spring season of Nepal, and Dumchi Lama Dance in autumn season. It is a valley where approximately 5000 people reside on the steep Himalayan foothills of Heavenly Everest. Everest is known but they don’t know that Okhaldungha is the base - a district that is very close to the Highest Mountain on Earth!
A Nepali singer, Late Narayan Gopal, who is regarded as the “Nepali King of Voice”, sang a song fully dedicating to this place - the Okhaldhungha, a district of Nepal. The song is highly respected, honored, lives in the hearts of Nepalese, and is regarded as one of the ever-green Nepali songs of all time. It sings about a person’s life in Okhaldunga and how beautiful the place was for him, yet the place has yet to receive required profile. It is generally believed that many of the hard working tour operators, mountain climbers come from Okhaldunga.
The following video also shows the map showing where Okhaldunga is located in Nepal as well as the song by Narayan Gopal. The map looks fuzzy but it does show you the location within in the country. Watch this video even if you don’t understand the song. For a few help with the translation… here it is, lyrics located below the video.
