Chepang Hill Trek
Chitwan is popular for both cultural and natural diversities. Among many other tourism activities, Chepang Hill Trekking has its own significance. This trekking trail leads you through the unexplored beautiful hillsides of Chitwan. This newly developed Trekking trail is just about 80 km from Kathmandu.
Besides the natural beauty, the trail offers cultural highlights of one of the indigenous communities of Nepal. This area is home to the Chepang people who lead a semi-nomadic life. And they have rich cultural traditions. Thus, to visit this marginalized group is to add some new form of insight into people and their way of life. You are more likely to enjoy their primitive culture, festivals, norms, and values. The trail sometimes provides you with philanthropic satisfaction as it is designed to lead through the homeland of Chepangs and their remote villages in order to generate income possibilities for them and to raise awareness about the Chepang culture among foreign visitors and Nepali people.
The trek begins with a scenic three-hour drive from Kathmandu to Hugdi, which offers breathtaking views of the surrounding landscapes. It sets the tone for an exciting adventure ahead. On the first day of the trek, we embark on a picturesque trail from Hugdi to Hattibang, immersing ourselves in the natural beauty and tranquility of the region. The journey continues with each day bringing new wonders to behold.
