    It is claimed to be the lowest point on earth with elevation spanning 60 meters above the sea level. Tracking with the GPS you find the nearby fields with lower elevation too. I suggest planting trees in and around the place.

    Lowest point of Nepal on far East-South border. Most of the roads are build up. Can be reached on private vehicle, no public transport available.
