When someone says Chitwan the things that come to our mind are rhinos, tiger’s elephant safari and dense forest of Sal tree but it is not limited to that. Chitwan has some more things to offer for trekkers and hikers.

The unexplored Chepang hill trail is a new attraction in Chitwan. Chitwan Chepang Hill Trek has a settlement of the Chepang people who are some of the most backward and endangered communities of Nepal. This nine-day trip takes you to places of cultural interest and also to places which are naturally scenic. Besides nature and culture, the most interesting things are the homestay experience which is offered during the trek. From sharing the farm work to food is a unique experience. This trek starts from a place called Hugdi and ends at Shaktikhor, one of the places where the Maoist guerrillas were kept during the peace process.
