Chitwan Chepang Hill Trail

Chitwan literally means “heart of the jungle.” In recent years Chitwan tops the list of things to do in Asia. Chitwan is a true wildlife adventure – jungle safaris on elephant back or in jeeps, bird watching, and canoe trips offer a different perspective of the teeming forest.

Pikey Danda (4065 m) is one of the tallest hills of Solu. From Pikey you can see most of the central and eastern Himalayan peaks Sagarmatha (Mt. Everest), Makalu, Khachenjunga, Annapurna, Gauri Shanker, Lhotseshar, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Number, Khatang, Karyalung, Shishapangma, Mera peak and Thamserku. The peak also offers breathtaking sunrise and sunset views during good weather a trial through Jiri- Chaulakharkha – Ngaur leads to the Pikey Danda area. The trial starts at Phaplu and passes through Kerung, Pattale, Jhapre, Pikey peak, Lamajura, Junbesi and ends at salleri.

Beside this Chitwan now offers a short new experience to trekkers. The Chitwan Chepang Hill Trail, offers a rare combination of cultural and sightseeing experience. One of the most interesting aspects of the trek is getting a glimpse of the Chepangs and other local communities who live in this mid-hill region of Nepal. Accepting the invitation of the villagers to stay in their beautiful homes as guests and sharing their meals is a journey of discovery in itself. The unique culture in this area in addition to natural attractions adds to the charm of the experience. The Chitwan Chepang Hill Trail begins at Hugdi, between Mugling and Krishna Bhir in Dhading district about 80 km from Kathmandu, and ends in Shaktikhor. If one starting from the Chitwan National Park the trail can also be started from Shaktikhor ending at Hugdi.
