Devchuli and Barchuli are hills that fall under the Mahabharat range and are considered the highest in the range standing tall at 1,936 m. From these hill tops, a 360 view of the Himalayan mountain range to the north and the southern plains (terai) can be seen. At 1,800 m on the hill there is a 30 meter deep cave with 11 feet of stairs into the cave from the entrance. According to Hindu narratives, during the Dwapar yug (third of the four ages described in the scriptures of Hinduism )the five “Pandav” brothers along with “Draupadi” has taken refuse inside the cave when they were temporarily banished from their home. During the full moon in the month of April, there are prayers offered to three virgin goddess (Kanya Mai).
