    Bhutanese refugee camps

    by Saagar Written Aug 15, 2006

    For more than a decade, about 100 000 Bhutanese refugees forced out of that benign gross-national-happiness country of Bhutan have been sitting in Jhapa waiting for a solution to their question of repatriation. The second generation refugees are now coming up - children who have known no other existence than the camps. The camps are supervised and provisioned by the UNHCR, but it diesn't replace the freedom of settlement and taking work and generally progressing with their lives.
    I do not mean that you should do refugee camp sightseeing, but just be aware of this situation. A few places in Jhapa you can see the camps from the road, but generally they are a bit away from view. To enter you will need a permit from the relevant district authorities.

    by Saagar Written Aug 15, 2006

    There are many tea gardens in Jhapa, and they provide the regular teas served all over Nepal. This lowland teas are less distinct than the highland qualities from Darjeeling and Ilam, but still good. With some luck you will be able to connect to an estate manager who can show you around.
