The word “Bhir” means cliff in the local Nepali language and this Bhir is a 10000 feet long cliff-edge with almost 3500 feet abrupt drop. Our Tarey Bhir resort is located on the hilltop of this geological wonder, which is covered in pine forests. There is a pathway over the edge of the ridge. This pathway is guarded by a railing and you can take a walk over the Bhir and the Pine forests, do some bird watching and if you are really lucky you can also catch a glimpse of the illusive Bharal (mountain Wild Sheep) perched on some cracks of the sheer rock face of Tarey Bhir.
