Khaptad National Park-The Best Trek in Nepal



Khaptad National Park is a well-hidden treasure in the Far Western corner of Nepal. Due to its remote location, it is still relatively untouched by tourism development, which makes Khaptad a perfect destination for the adventurer looking for a real wilderness experience.

Khaptad offers you a beautiful variety of landscapes, with rolling green hills, moorlands, steep slopes and streams. 567 species of flora have been recorded in the protected area, including rhododendron forests, oak and pine forests. From the park you can see the Api and Saipal Himalayan ranges.

Khaptad is great for spotting wildlife and birds, with 23 species of mammals and 287 types of birds. Mammal species symbolic of the park are leopard, Himalayan black bear, wild dog and musk deer. Bird species include the beautiful Impeyan pheasant (danphe; Nepal’s national bird), Peregrin falcon, the white rumped vulture and many types of partridges, flycatchers, bulbuls, cuckoos and eagles.

Besides its natural beauty Khaptad also has a rich spiritual history. Khaptad Baba, the renowned spiritual saint after which this region takes its name, is said to have meditated here for 50 years. Time your visit with the full moon in July and August when Hindu pilgrims come to worship Lord Shiva in the Khaptad Baba Ashram.
