OUTSIDE KATHMANDU - KHAPTAD
Khaptad is situated in the middle hills of the far western part of the country. It is a plateau of grassland and forest at an elevation of about 3,000 meters. At the north-eastern part of Khaptad there is a small serene lake and swampy area called Khaptad Daha which is a religious site where Hindu pilgrims come to worship Shiva on the full moon of July-August each year. Here used to live the ascetic, the Khaptad Baba, who is known and revered throughout Nepal.
The easiest access is to fly to Dipayal or Chainpur or Sanfebagar from where it is a few days hike to the place.
Visitors should be self sufficient with tents, fuel and food as there are no commercial lodges available in Khaptad.
