The Far-West Heritage Trail is a newly developed trekking trail, located in the Far Western region of Nepal. The trail connects three must-visit attractions of this region: Khaptad National Park, the temple of Badi Malika and the wetland area of Ramaroshan.

Stretching over the districts of Achham, Bajhang, Bajura and Doti, the Khaptad National Park, is a museum of natural history and a garden of herbs. This national park provides shelter to 567 species of flora, 23 species of mammals, 287 species of birds and 23 species of amphibians and reptile. The landscape exhibits a perfect combination of moorlands, steep slopes, lakes and streams and the area protects the fascinating story of the hermit (commonly known as Khaptad Baba), who lived, researched and meditated in this area for more than 50 years and became a renowned spiritual saint.

Badimalika Temple, located at the altitude of 4,214m in Bajura District, is one of the major temples in the Far-Western Region of Nepal. The temple is dedicated to Goddess Bhagwati. The temple is visited mainly during Ganga Dashara and Janai Pornima. It is believed that the wishes of anyone, who visits her temple with a pure heart will be fulfilled by goddess Bhagwati.  

Ramaroshan, also known as the heart of the Far West region lies in Achham district of Nepal. This area is very famous for its 12 wetlands and 18 pastures. It’s also a home to various birds, including Nepal’s national bird, Danphe. You can experience pristine nature unaffected, not even a bit, by modern development.

The Far-West Heritage Trail trekking, by Amigo Treks and Expedition, in total is a 19 day package. The trail isn’t fully developed; therefore, you will find very less accommodation options, notice boards and signs providing information about the route and the place. However, our 19 days Far-West Heritage Trail ensures bed and breakfast in cities and full board (meal and accommodation), during the trekking. It’s both, tea house and camping trek. Additionally, the package also ensures the benefits of English speaking local guide, all ground transportation and domestic flights. However, the package can be customized to fit the requirements of the customer. Bring a group and enjoy a special group discount!

This trek is recommended for trekkers looking to experience pristine natural beauty and explore the lifestyle, settlement and cultural attractions of the remote areas of Nepal. It’s best for those looking to try the off-the-beaten-trekking-trail in Nepal. Spring and Autumn are the best seasons to enjoy this trekking. 

The trip starts with a flight to Dhangadhi.  From Dhangadhi, we will drive to Silgadhi and the journey ahead of Silgadhi is completely on foot. After enjoying the heritages, we will drive to Dhangadhi to catch a flight back to Kathmandu.

Any physically fit person with good stamina (some days require 10 hours walking) and health can easily complete this trek in Nepal.

While seeking advice, we recommend you to focus on the necessary guide walks required to prepare your body before the  trek.

Tipping the service provider in Nepal is customary. This shows the expression of gratitude and satisfaction. In Nepal you can tip your service providers like guides, porters, drivers, and waiters. The tip amount entirely depends upon your wish.

Safety and Security

Your safety and security is our greatest concern during the trek. Therefore, during the trek, your team leader is given full authority to amend or cancel the itinerary, if it concerns your safety. The amendment or cancellation might be required in the case of unforeseen circumstances, like sudden weather change, natural disaster, bad health of a group member, or any kind of violent protest and demonstrations.

For the safety and security of your belongings, like passport, air tickets, travel checks, cash and other valuable items, we recommend you bring a neck wallet or money belt to carry these stuffs, while travelling. Do not bring your valuable jewelry along with you. Most of the hotels in Kathmandu provide safety deposit boxes, where you can safely store your valuables, while you are on a trek. However, for the security of your luggage, we suggest you bring a lock.

Please note, neither the team leader nor the company will not be responsible for the security involved during any extra activities that you want to undertake which is not included in the itinerary. Therefore, calculate the risk before attempting any such activity, especially water based (do not go alone; take the help of your guide). Also, do not force our team leader to make arrangement on your behalf for water based activities that are not accompanied by guide(s).

Additional rules:

We strongly recommend you not to contravene the laws and rules of the country. Do not carry illegal drugs and do not get involved with sex workers.

Local Dress

When packing your luggage, we recommend you to pick loose, lightweight, long clothing to help you stay cool in the hot and humid climate of Asian summer. Dress standard in Asia is more conservative, therefore, we recommend you to avoid very short dresses like shorts/skirts/singlet/tank tops especially, while visiting holy sites.

Best season to Plan Far West Heritage Trail trek:

Although this trekking can be planned any time of the year, Spring (March-May) and Autumn (September-November) are the best season to plan this trekking.
