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 reptiles. 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 Purnima. 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 the Achham district of Nepal. This area is very famous for its 12 wetlands and 18 pastures. It’s also 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, a tea house and a 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 the 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.

(Please note: This trip to Nepal can also be arranged with arrival and departure from Delhi, instead of Kathmandu. From Delhi, we will drive to Dhangadhi and vice versa. The rest of the itinerary will remain the same.)
