There is an ancient settlement of Himalayan community which is known as Dho Tharap. They are still less in touch with the modern world, following the old tradition, culture, and customs from centuries ago. The area has beautiful landscapes where they migrated from Tibetan plate by passing the high passes that follows the Tibetan Buddhism and old pre Buddhist religion of Bon Po. It was closed to the foreigners, but now the government has opened it for tourism.
