The scenario of Mt. Saipal Himalayan Ranges to the north and the vast green mid-hills to other directions can be seen clearly from Khaptad. Khaptad National Park is a well-hidden treasure in the Far Western corner of Nepal. Due to its remote location, it is still relatively untouched by tourism development, which makes Khaptad a perfect destination for the adventurer looking for a real wilderness experience.
Khaptad is great for spotting wildlife and birds, with 23 species of mammals and 287 types of birds. Mammal species symbolic of the park are leopard, Himalayan black bear, wild dog and musk deer. Bird species include the beautiful Impeyan pheasant (danphe; Nepal’s national bird), Peregrin falcon, the white rumped vulture and many types of partridges, flycatchers, bulbuls, cuckoos and eagles.
