The Village Kaule


Kaule is a village of the nepalese midhills, lying on the altitude of 1860 m on a mountain pass. The position is about 25 km Northwest from the capital Kathmandu. Kaule belongs to Okharpauwa Village Development Committee in Nuwakot District. Regarding to Nepal Census 2001, there live 2976 people in 605 households. Most of the population is Tamang, but there also live Sherpa and Newar families. The people live mainly from agriculture and there is a lot of monoculture land.

Close to Kaule is the place Kakani and the Shivapuri Nationalpark, which are both known well in Nepal.

Because the first project of our organization takes places there, Kaule is our name giver.
