Highlights

Khaptad National Park Trek offers a challenging yet rewarding experience unlike any other protected area in Nepal, because of its remoteness the area has been kept untouched by the tourist. You can see memorable view of Api and Saipal Himalayan ranges.


The Khaptad National Park is one of the non-touristic national parks in Nepal that is visited by very few numbers of tourists. Besides its natural diversities, the Khaptad National Park is very famous religious place as it is the domicile of Hindu guru “Khaptad Swami” or “Khaptad Baba”, a renounced hermit. Khaptad Baba lived here for many years and found out many medicinal herbal plants. He meditated in Khaptad area for long time and reserved five km area for the meditation and tranquility.

Khaptad is a beautiful trekking and research place for the humankind. The Natural Beauty of this region and tranquility gives us profound way of thinking of innovation ideas. If you are really bored from mundane life and want to live new world, then this can be your destination. Khaptad offers treks that ranges from short easy hikes to strenuous ones, religious sightseeing with its several sacred sites, quiet rejuvenation in its pristine surroundings and the rich cultural experience of far west Nepal.

Khaptad Lake and wonderful view of Api and Saipal Himal range are of special interest for the tourists. Butchering, alcohol and tobacco are forbidden in his area. Khaptad is the beauty of Nepal. Even though this is a national park but it is more than that. It is one of the pacified place, situated at the far western region of Nepal and 446 km air distance from the Kathmandu (Capital of Nepal) and more near from Nainital India (around 150 Km air distance). The main area of Khaptad is situated at the corona of four districts (Bajhang, Bajura, Doti and Accham). However anyone can visit this place by chartering private helicopters or by trekking. For wonderful snaps trekking is the best.
