Chepang Hills visit
Chitwan is widely known for its National Park, famous for its population of rhinos, tigers and elephants. However, this trail leads you through the unexplored beautiful hillsides of Chitwan. Besides the natural beauty, the trail offers cultural highlights of one of the indigenous communities of Nepal.
This area is the home of the Chepang people who lead a semi-nomadic life and have rich cultural traditions. Due to their distinct life style and the remoteness of their homeland, this indigenous group belongs to the much marginalized groups of Nepal.
The trail is designed to lead through the homeland of Chepangs and their lovely villages in order to generate income possibilities for them and to raise awareness about Chepang culture among foreign visitors and Nepali people. This trail lies at a moderate altitude and in a comfortable climate zone.
