The Khaptad National Park, named after a renowned and mysterious sage “Khaptad Baba” and located in the mid-mountain region of the Far-Western Nepal, is one of the very famous trekking destinations in Nepal. Established in the year 1984, this National Park, spreading across the area of 225sq km, cover a unique ecosystem of the mid mountain region, thus, allowing the visitors to enjoy the vegetation type that ranges from the subtropical forest to the temperate forest full of  a variety of medicinal herbs. Apart from the vegetation, it also provides a home to animals, like musk deer, wild boar, porcupine, leopard, Himalayan Yellow-throated marten, Himalayan black bear, goral, jackal, Himalayan Thar, wolf, and common Langur; birds, like chyakhura, kalij, titra, dhukor, monal, red and yellow-billed blue magpie, nutcracker, flycatcher, thrushes, Himalayan griffin cuckoos, forktails, wagtails and Danphe and a wide variety of butterflies, moths and insects. An opportunity to explore these varieties attracts a number of tourists to plan a trek to Khaptad National Park in Nepal.

However, Khaptad Trek isn’t just limited to these varieties, but there is more to it. The Khaptad National Park is also a place of religious significance. The existence of the Ashram of Khaptad Swami, Tribeni, Sahasra Linga, Khaptad Lake, Kedardhunga and Mai Than make this place extremely important for religious travelers.  Moreover, mixed vegetation of forest and herbs filled meadows, huge plateau of hilly grassland at the altitude of about 3000m create serene atmosphere, while adding beauty to already scenic landscape.

Apart from the attractions of the Khaptad National Park, this trekking allows trekkers to enjoy the attractions of Dhangadi, Silgadhi, Jhingrana and Chainpur and explore the remote area and settlement of people in living in these areas of Nepal. This trip starts with a flight from Kathmandu to Dhangadhi. From Dhangadhi we drive to Silgadhi, the starting point of the Khaptad Trek. After exploring the national park area for 3 days, the trekking ends as Chainpur, from where, we drive to Dhangadhi and fly back to Kathmandu.
