This is a newly developed Trekking trail. This area is about 80 km from Kathmandu. Chitwan Chepang Hills Trail is unique because of one of the most ethnic cultures of Nepal- Chepang Culture. Chepangs, believed to be influenced by Tamangs, speak their own distinct language, leading a nomadic life and their primary lifestyle, hunting, foraging for wild roots and fishing and traditional farming near jungles. A Praja Pande (faith healer) might be an interesting figure for cultural tourists to be introduced to. They inhabit the remote and sparse contours of Makawanpur, Chitwan, Gorkha and Dhading districts. The Chitwan Chepang Hills Trail offers a rare combination of cultural and sightseeing experience.
In clear weather you can see the summits from Dhaulagiri (8167M) To Kanchenjunga (8598M) The trekking passes a variety of landscapes and you will be produced to the inhabitants by means of their songs, dances, hospitality and craftsmanship: they produce among others wine and honey. At the end of the trekking, you will know a great deal more about the life of these isolated jungle people.
