Overview

Khaptad National Park Trek provides one of Nepal’s rare non-touristic wilderness national park experiences. The park, which covers 225 square kilometres in Nepal’s far western area, was established in 1984. It is genuinely encircled by beautiful oak and rhododendron trees. This national park sits at an elevation of 12,000 feet above sea level. Therefore it is home to a bear, a leopard, a common langur, and a musk deer. On the other hand, it is also home to 260 kinds of birds, 500 varieties of herbs, and various flora and animals.

The Khaptad region is Nepal’s “paradise on earth.”. The Khaptad can be accessible via Nepal’s Doti, Achham, Bajang, and Bajura Districts. These districts are known for their natural beauty and ecological diversity. Meanwhile, getting to the Khaptad area via Bajhang and Doti District is more convenient. In addition to its natural beauty, the Khaptad National Park is a well-known religious destination because it is the home of Hindu teacher “Khaptad Swami” or “Khaptad Baba,” a renounced hermit. Khaptad Baba spent many years here and thus discovered many medicinal herbal plants. Therefore, he meditated and spent his whole life in the Khaptad area for an extended period.
