The Khaptad National Park is one of the many protected eco biodiverse areas of Nepal. Established in 1984, the park was named after the late Swami Sachidananda (Khatad Baba), who meditated in that area.
The park covers an area of 225 square kilometers and home to various floras and faunas. The best times to visit the park are spring (March to May) and autumn (October to November). During these periods, the temperature ranges from 10 to 20 degrees Celsius, resulting in a pleasant trekking experience. The least ideal time to visit the park is in Monsoon (June to September), where the paths become slippery, and the views are obscured by clouds most of the time.
