A National Forest for the National Flower

There are many wild areas of Nepal that urgently require protection. Milke Danda in the eastern hills is one such place, a place of rare beauty, repository of the rhododendron.

Milke Danda is a 25-km-long north-to-south ridge that divides the Arun and Tamur river valleys, an elongated mountain in the Mahabharat belt which stands like an eastern counter-point to the Khaptad plateau of far west Nepal. Khaptad is the only national park in the Nepali midhills, and increasingly there is a demand for Milke Danda to be protected as well.
