Kathmandu Tour Overview

The Khaptad Trek is an 8 to 10-day trek that takes you through the beautiful Khaptad National Park, which covers an area of 225 square kilometers.

The trek begins with a scenic drive from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj in the Banke district. From there, you drive to Buditola followed by a trek through picturesque villages and dense forests to reach the Khaptad plateau, which is situated at an altitude of 3,000 meters.

The Khaptad plateau is famous for its grasslands, alpine forests, and stunning views of the Himalayas. The area is also home to a variety of wildlife, including musk deer, wild boar, Himalayan black bear, and more than 200 species of birds.

One of the main attractions of the Khaptad Trek is the Khaptad Baba Ashram, which is a holy site for both Hindus and Buddhists. The ashram was built in honor of Khaptad Baba, a renowned Hindu saint who lived in the area in the 1940s.
