सुदुर पश्चिमाञ्चल विकास क्षेत्र,  The Far-Western Region covered 19,539 square kilometers. It had nine districts with the regional headquarters at Dipayal, Doti district. The Far-Western Region was remote and developmentally challenged. Some 44% of people in the Far West Hills and 49% in the Himalayan districts lived below the poverty line. The region had limited basic services. The difficult topography complicated development. The region had complex socio-economic structures along with widespread gender- and caste-based discrimination. Traditional systems associated with religion, culture and customs had limited overall development.[1] It comprised two zones:

  1. Seti 
  2. Mahakali

Tharu Culture

The Tharu people comprise several groups who speak different dialects and differ in traditional dress, customs, rituals and social organization.[36] They consider themselves as a people of the forest. In Chitwan, they have lived in the forests for hundreds of years practising a short fallow shifting cultivation. They plant ricewheatmustardmaize and lentils, but also collect forest products such as wild fruits, vegetables, medicinal plants and materials to build their houses; hunt deerrabbit and wild boar, and go fishing in the rivers and oxbow lakes.[15]

The Rana Tharus never went abroad for employment, a life that kept them isolated in their own localities.[37] They developed a unique culture free from the influence of adjacent India, or from the ethnic groups in Nepal’s mountains. The most striking aspects of their environment are the decorated rice containers, colorfully painted verandahs and outer walls of their homes using only available materials like claymudcow dung and grass. Much of the rich design is rooted in devotional activities and passed on from one generation to the next, occasionally introducing contemporary elements such as a bus or an airplane.[38]
