Far West Nepal is in Nepal. Far West Nepal is undoubtedly the newest tourist destination in Nepal. One of the development region, among five of Nepal, this region is still untouched and unexplored, but holds some of the most potential attractions, ranging from the largest herd of Swamp Deer in Asia at Suklaphanta National Park to the majestic beauty of the alpine meadows, forest and lakes at Khaptad, to picturesque off the beaten trails of mountain range such as Mt. Api and Mt. Saipal. The culture is also rich and relatively untouched, from the nomadic Rautes to the Rana Tharu, who travelled all the way from Rajasthan when the Moghuls invaded India. There is much folklore and ancient stories passed on from generation to generation well worth a listen while travelling here.
