Overview

The Khaptad Trek, also known as the Khaptad National Park Trek, is one of Nepal's least popular and isolated treks. This trek begins out easy, but as you progress, it becomes increasingly difficult. Khaptad National Park was formed in 1984 and is home to a diverse range of plants. The Park is rich in flora and wildlife, with 224 types of medicinal herbs, 270 species of birds, and a variety of animals, and it is estimated to house 11% of Nepal's flowers.

Trekking in the Khaptad Region is a hidden Shangri-La in Nepal's western region. This Khaptad region covers 225 km2 and is located within the Khaptad national park. This national park is located in the Seti Zone and spans Doti, Accham, Bajhang, and Bajura. The word Khaptad comes from a spiritual person who has spent many years in this region doing meditation and study. As a result of his fame, the national park was named after him. As a result, this region is well-known not just among trekkers, but also among pilgrims, researchers, and followers of Khaptad Baba. 

Tourists come to see Khaptad Lake and the breathtaking views of the Api and Saipal Himal ranges. The Ganga Dashahara Carnival is conducted in Khaptad on the 14th Jestha of the Nepali month, which falls in the last week of May. The carnival provides guests with a unique opportunity to experience far western culture and lifestyle. Butchering, drinking and smoking are all prohibited in his area. 

The journey begins with a flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj. The flight will be fantastic and you will be able to see that Nepalgunj has a more Indian-style lifestyle. As we leave Nepalgunj's rush and bustle, we will see colorful people. However, we will drive from Nepalgunj to Buditola and then another trip the next day to the famed town of Silgadhi. It's a long journey from Silgadhi to Jhigrana via Baglek and then to Bukipani via Bichpani. Along the trek, we will also reach Dharamsala (3020 m). We will arrive in Khaptad and visit Khaptad Baba's Ashram and Triveni after resting for a while. Similarly, the following day, we will spend the entire day exploring Khaptad National Park. We will go to the Museum, Khaptad Danda, Patan (Meadow) and Tower. Finally, the road back to Silgadhi passes through Jhigrana. After going via Silgadhi, we alter our route to Nepalgunj, from where we will fly back to KTM.

The best part of Khaptad is that it can be visited all year round. Each season has its own set of benefits. You can appreciate the beauty of wild flowers during the monsoon season of Jestha - Ashadh, but you can view the splendor of the Himalayas if you visit Khaptad during the fall season of Ashoj - Kartik. Khaptad is covered in snow throughout the winter season of Poush-Magh, but when you arrive during Chaitra-Baishakh, the rhododendrons bloom, enchanting the traveler's heart. The views of Api and Saipal mountains can be enjoyed from the crest of Khaptad.
