Chepang Hill Trek is another new open and unique experience trek that can be completed within 9 days. Being located in an off the beaten path trail, trekkers can enjoy their trekking adventure in a non-crowded trek trail which is mostly missed out by trekkers. Striking landscapes, a unique experience of Chepang Peoples and their culture, tourist-friendly local people and the homemade local dishes make traveling in this isolated region a very remarkable experience for many trekkers.
Beginning with a guided sightseeing city tour, we are going to take a detour around all the popular touristic attractions of the Kathmandu valley which include the conspicuous UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Among them, the ancient Swoyambhunath Stupa (The Monkey Temple), Boudhanath Stupa, Hindu shrine of Pashupatinath Temple and the enriching Kathmandu Durbar Square are the noteworthy sites.
As we finish relishing the utter joy of visiting these sites, we shall take a drive from Kathmandu to Hugdikhola village which is the starting point of our trek. This peculiar village is just 310 meters above sea level and has an abundant amount of village life to explore and trek up to Jayapura Village. Here onward, trekkers have a chance to witness the local ways of milking the buffaloes. Moving onward, we head to our next destination called Hatti Bang (Elephant Stone in Chepang language). To reach Hatti Bang, we are required to hike up from Jayapuri village that can take us about 4-5 hours. After arriving at Hatti Bang, travelers can observe the Annapurna ranges if the clouds don’t cover up the skyline. As scheduled, we move towards Jyangdala village by following a humid terrain full of forested hill areas which create a pleasing atmosphere for trekkers walking through them. Additionally, foreign trekkers can taste the hand cooked Nepalese cuisines which are the iconic highlight of this entire trek. Sights of Himalayan mountains like Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Manaslu and even the magnificent Annapurna range can be observed from here. Lastly, we now are in our final phase of the trek hence we make a beeline towards Upper Dhangadi and Shaktikhor. And ultimately end our trek by taking a drive back to Kathmandu from Shaktikhor.
Altitude is not going to be a major issue for trekkers who decide to travel in these off the beaten path trails as there are no high places en-route. Generally, trekkers are recommended the spring and autumn seasons as the best season to for Chepang Hill Trek. Contact, Himalayan Holyland Treks and Expedition today to join this amazing trek in the hilly areas of southern Nepal with our expert trekking staffs.

In Kathmandu valley, visiting world heritage sites with all its history and cultural importance was very nice that Prakash explained me. He is a really honest, educated and hardworking with the best management to make a memorable trip to Nepal. After the heritage sites visit, I went to Chepang Hill trek which is still fresh in my mind and heart that how Chepang people live and what they do even in the 21th century. To see the real life and the value we have I best saw there in Chepang Hill Trek. I had also delicious food at Prakash home with all his family. The villagers are really friendly and honest. This trip is one of my best trips so far. It is with the help of Prakash and his team.
