Achham District Nepal


Achham District (Nepali: अछाम जिल्ला ), a part of Seti Zone, is one of the seventy-five districts of Nepal, a landlocked country of South Asia. The district, with Mangalsen as its district headquarters, covers an area of 1,692 km². It is one of the remotest districts of Nepal. It is accessible by automobile from Kathmandu and Nepalgunj via a paved road that runs along the western border of Nepal from Dhangadhi.

Mangalsen, the district headquarters, is eight hours walk from Sanphebagar - a town in Achham sporting a non-functional domestic airport. A seasonal road exists from Sanphebagar to Mangalsen but is often closed during monsoon season. A bridge crosses the Budhi Ganga river in Sanphebagar allowing access during high water, a second bridge over the second river crossing is also under construction. During 2009/2010, the government of Nepal will be constructing a paved road connecting Sanphebagar to Mangalsen. The district is served by two hospitals, the government district hospital in Mangalsen and one recently opened in Bayalpata that is a collaboration between the government and the non-profit organization Nyaya Health.
