Overview

Overview

Chitlang trekking is the shortest but most exhilarating trek at a distance of 22 km southwest of Kathmandu. The trek starts after an hour of drive from Kathmandu to Thankot. Chitlang is located in the Makwanpur district with magnificent attractions for tourists. The trek also provides a magnificent view of the Himalayan Peaks. 

Trek to Chitlang will take us to historical villages with ancient inscriptions, temples with fascinating wooden and stone carvings, artistic rest houses, stone taps, and the most ethnic Newar community. Dominatingly, Chitlang is a village for the Newar people where trekkers experience delicious food, artistic and colourful culture, and a language different from what trekkers generally learn. Rice and lentils/Daal Bhaat is “Daal Ja”, Greeting/Namaste is “Jwojolappa” and Thank you or Dhanyabad becomes “Suvya”. 

While trekkers penetrate through the forest, they dive into a beautiful Newari Village surrounded by green exquisite forest with around 160 species of birds and animals. Surprisingly, the Chitlang trek brings indescribable scenic views along the trails full of greenery and high hills. In fact, the incredible historical village offers a beautiful organic resort with large green fields, a pear garden, stunningly beautiful cottages, and eternal crimson sunset. Chitlang is an everlasting experience because of its homestays which introduce hikers to the rural and cultural lifestyle of the dominant community. A jungle walk by a local guide and an evening campfire enlighten the love towards nature. 

Further, the ravishingly beautiful man-made Kulekhani Lake also known as Indrasarovar is two hours hike down from Chitlang. Similarly, the excursion includes boating in a lake and exploration around Markhu village. The Dakshinkali is a temple of the Kali Goddess which is a pilgrimage temple for Hindu believers. Uniquely, the temple has its history which is set at a convergence of two sacred streams in the rocky cleft. Trekkers explore the area and hike to the top hill for the astounding views of the surroundings and visit the living museum which is the oldest hydro-electricity power station.
