Bagarchhap is a village development committee in Manang District in the Gandaki Zone of northern Nepal. At the time of the 1991 Nepal census it had a population of 534 people living in 116 individual households.[1]

On 10 November 1995 most of Bagarchap (around 80%) was destroyed by a landslide, which killed 11 villagers and 9 trekkers. Many villagers relocated to Danaque to the west and Bagarchhap is now much smaller than it was prior to the landslide.[2]
