In Nepali, Bajre refers to an area where thunder regularly erupts, whereas Dara refers to a ridge. Today, hikers will come upon the remains of thunder-damaged dead tree trunks.

There are several legends around this name.Some say a thunderbolt wiped out all the vegetation in the area. Others say the locals burned the vegetation to protect their land from outsiders. If we look into the history of this trek, you will find it interesting.
