A trip to the remote far western region of Nepal

The far western region of Nepal is renowned for remoteness and isolation which hosts some of the most beautiful natural habitats and landscapes, far away from the human interference and man-made structures.
The first one is suklaphanta wildlife reserve is a protected area which resides some of the endangered species of the world. The beautiful grasslands found in this region is the grazing area for deer, Great one horned rhinoceros, elephant and many more. The high grass land also hosts many of the predators in the ecosystem some of which are leopard, Bengal tiger, monitor lizard etc. similarly, there are many birds found in this region, for the birdwatchers who really get excited in viewing exotic birds and some of which are: wood pecker, babblers like yellow eyed babbler, chestnut- capped babbler and jerdon’s babbler, grey headed fish eagle, darter, oriental pied hornbill and many more. One of the greatest creation of the nature, suklaphanta wildlife reserve is a place which must be visited.
An elevated plateau, khaptad is mostly grasslands between the alpine landscapes which consists of numerous landscapes which are not only eye catching but also hosts precious wildlife. Cherry on the top would be the flowers that blossom during the spring and autumn which covers the grassland and is breathtakingly beautiful. Due to the remoteness and the isolation which the region hosts, the natural habitat to the wildlife and the flora are well preserved and are left unaltered.
Bhimdutta is a city with an unconventional features which diverges from temple to casino. For Hindu followers and any travel enthusiast, bhimdutta is a religional and educational hub as the region hosts destination like Vishnu Temple (Kamal Mandir), Tikapur Park, Rautela(Baijnath Temple), Siddhanath Mandir(Temple), Chunepaani Taal(Lake), Jhulunge Pool (Bridge), Betkot Taal(lake) etc.
The far western region is the least visited region in Nepal, primarily due to the fact that the destination is hard to reach and the infrastructure for tourism is limited. This does not mean that the region is not to be visited as the region being less interfered by manmade structures defines the preservation of the landscapes and the natural habitat of the fauna. Many of the travel agencies have set the far western region as the center of attraction and offer packages which are attractive and reliable. Besides the beautiful landscapes and the extra ordinary wildlife, the opportunity to learn various cultures in such region is prominent which would be something new for the visitors.
