Far West Region Trek


Clearly being so far away from the center, precisely from the capital, the privileges remained very limited to the far west region in every aspect of development, education and business which made the region lagged behind so much from the rest of the regions in Nepal. However, the government has found a way out for this poor great region, with a spirit of walking together regardless of distance barrier from far east to far west in a pursuit of better unification through out the nation, in the form of developing and promoting  the region into a tourism destination.

Isolated for so long, the region definitely offers true but pristine nature so unspoilt and undisturbed that for those nature lovers and trekkers, this region would certainly be the paradise on earth, bet on that, however the trails aren’t of the standard as in the  other regions and tea houses are rare to find, so, trekkers should be not only self sufficient but also self dependent and well prepared for such challenging trek, nevertheless the return is rewarding as the trails aren’t that crowded and everything is yours and only yours whatever the indigenous people have kept for themselves for so long until now. 

Yet again, it reminds us of the days when the government of Nepal first opened its tourism to the rest of the world in 1950s, when things looked impossible, now those things have evolved into one of the world’s best and finest trekking destinations in the world the likes of Everest and Annapurna regions, again, who would have imagined Ghorepani and Ghandruk now 25 years ago.

Lets just come to the point; the time has come just knocking at the door for the far west region that has the potential to become one of the best destinations in Nepal, no wonder, in near future. Moreover, when Everest and Annapurna become clichés among the trekkers, far west region would be the newest idea and upcoming trend in the world of trekkers and adventures to explore the nature at its pure form and the people and their culture so uninfluenced.
