Needing a DEM background for some task, I've prepared a rendering from
the 30m SRTM DEM data made available by USGS for Central Nepal on HDX,
and shared it as TMS it in case it could useful to others too. Note that
it is not void-filled ("The voids occur in areas where the initial
processing did not meet quality specifications").

URL for JOSM is:

and for iD:

The color ramp used follows the rainbow, for visual contrast (and also
for the spiritual symbol):

0 m : black
1000 m : blue
2000 m : cyan
3000 m : green
4000 m : yellow
5000 m : red
6000 m : white

This only covers Central Nepal for now (N27E83 to N28E85). Please let me
know if you'd like extended coverage (in particular to the East, or for
entire Nepal), or have other suggestions or comments.

Best wishes,
