Bhedetar (translation: Sheep's Butte) is a village development committee in Dhankuta District in the Koshi Zone of eastern Nepal. At the time of the 1991 Nepal census it had a population of 2643 people living in 513 individual households.[1] It is 1,420 meters high from the sea level. It is actually the border line of Sunsari and Dhankuta district.

Attractions[edit]

Bhedetar is a developing tourist spot. It is a small hill station just 16 kilometers away from Dharan Sub-metropolis. It is famous for its unpredictable weather - a moment it hides itself in the blanket of thick fog and another moment it reveals itself as the crown of urban Dharan.

Nepal Television has a High Power Transmitter Station at Bhedetar which broadcasts different Channels of Nepal Television. Transmissions are not only received by the Bhedetar but also neighbouring places.
