What to Experience ?
According to one of the legends the name Ramaroshan derives from the names of two
beautiful plateaus ‘Rama’ and ‘Roshan’. Two neighboring wetlands Rama and Roshan are
located at the altitude of 2500 m and a distance of half an hour by food from each other.
Another story tells us about God Rama who used to come to the peaceful place called
Ramaroshan: The area of Ramaroshan consists of 12 lakes and 18 breathtakingly lustrous
green pastures, locally known as Patans. To the North there is an unbroken series of sedimentary
rock faces where the local people harvest honey from sheer 100 m high cliffs.
