Far West is an untouched and unexplored destination in Nepal and the most potential attractions off the beaten trails. Far West includes the flat land, Himalayas, mountain, Lakes, National Parks with the highest elevation at 7,132 meters.
Far West of Nepal! Few tourists brave these wild western corners of the country. It is perhaps Nepal’s best kept secret – a land home to kindhearted people who live on some of the most unique landscapes on our planet. But there is a vast amount of land that lies even further west that is seldom explored by tourists. It is a sanctuary of pristine landscapes and unique ethnic groups. Don’t hesitate, come before the crowds find out about it!
The enticement goes beyond that this area is widely void of tourism, though that is a defining trait. The massive mountains, alpine meadows, immaculate lakes, and fertile lowlands are nearly entirely unspoiled. With off-the-beaten-path trekking as its specialty, Far West Nepal gives you a true taste of wilderness, with distinct cultures that are purely intact.
One of these precious destinations lies in Rara National Park. The Rara Lake Trek gives hikers seeking isolation exactly what they want. The trail leads through remote villages and lush forests up to the hidden lake. In fact, besides government workers, nobody is legally allowed to live around the lake. Walk along the shore of the crystal-clear lake with soaring Himalayan peaks as the backdrop.
Or, delve into the mysterious Dolpo district for an out of this world adventure. Until semi-recently, no foreigners were even allowed into the district. Since then, there have been books and movies made about this magical place. There are several routes through Dolpo, including Upper Dolpo and Lower Dolpo Treks. A highlight is reaching Shey Phoksundo Lake, widely agreed as Nepal’s most beautiful lake.
