Manikhel village is located in the Mahankal rural municipality in Lalitpur district of province no 3. We have a small team to explore and promote new places which are out of reach due to proper information and route. As for our schedule, we decided to meet at Chapagau Dobato of Lalitpur. According to our plan, we met there and started our trip towards Simba falls (Jharana). The main key attractions of the trip and Simba Jharana are the natural magnificent of Jharana, surrounding greenery and village life.
The routeways to reach Simba Jharana via Thecho, Chapagau, Lele, Bhardev, Chaugharey, Gotikhel and Rigin Dada. After parking vehicles, it takes 40-1 hour on foot to reach the main falls and peaceful surroundings.
The name after Simba is very interesting, Simba is named in the Tamang language, which means ‘cold’. So we can feel the same cold and pure. Simba fall is a combination of 7 waterfalls in Manikhel. While we reached there, we can feel delighted and joyous by waterfalls and greenery surroundings. Mostly Tamang community is there but other few communities are also live there. We can eat fresh and organic local rice and fruits in Rigin dada.
