Chepang Hill Trek 7 Days Itinerary

Nepal is fast-emerging as one of the globe’s best trekking destinations. In recent years, it has seen an upsurge in the number of hikers traveling the country like never before.

That puts the question of why so many people are fond of Nepal and its trekking route. You too must be wondering what’s so great about the country that makes it a gem.

So, let me tell you that it’s nothing but the country’s outlying trek routes and extensive wilderness. The high and low paths of Nepal that walk atop the mountain has captivated trekkers from all around the world.

Meanwhile, there are also few trails that escape the way to the apex and still offer drop-dead view. These walkways unfurl Nepal’s finest scenic vista that’s as breathtaking as unique.

Also, one of these trekking spots that has impeded the way to the top is Chepang Hill Trek . It was named after an indigenous tribe called Chepang who inhabited the region.

The shortest and most accessible trek route, Chepang Hill is just 166.1km far-off from Kathmandu. But, despite being next-door to the valley, the region comes up with much more diversity, both culture and nature wise.

The region is impossibly rich in culture and tradition regardless of the minority groups. For something new, the walkway is definitely not a child’s play but still worth following a sensational view.

Highlights of Chepang Hill Trek

  • Picturesque view of snow-capped mountains like Rolwaling and Manaslu range
  • Easy walking trails with no twists and turns
  • Day trip of Chitwan National Park and even jungle safari
  • A visual treat to discern the lush green forest with flowers bloomed all over
  • Insight into vivid culture and tradition of people with different ethnicity
  • Diverse scenery with distinctive wild animals and birds

Best Time for Chitwan-Chepang Hill Trek

Finding the best time to visit Chepang Hill is presumably a challenge for many trekkers. And that’s because the accomplishment of your trek somewhat relies on which time you visit the region.

Depending on which season you’re going to travel, the trek can be as momentous as you expect. Henceforth, if you’re wishing to make your Chepang Hill Trek imperishable then better make it happen during spring or autumn .

These are the two seasons that can make your 7-day long trip unforgettable for every good reason. As far as Autumn is concerned, there’s plenty to look over the valley including the surreal landscapes and endless forest.

The trails, all along the way to the hill are tucked with orange and yellow foliage, causing it to look astonishing. As above you climb, there are tremendous remote villages to seek out and relish the culture here.

Terrific as always, spring deserves widespread attention for its captivating beauty. The season is just perfect to flee the city chaos and enjoy the backdrop view of Chepang village.

Often the weather at Chepang remains placid in spring with bursting evergreen forest to relish. You get the best view at this time around with redden Rhododendron sprouting in and around the woodland.

The temperature also remains mild during the season with the sun casting light upon the village. Far-flung from the spring, it’s winter that succeeds bringing, somewhat considerably more trekkers than monsoon.

Although it’s bitterly cold at this time around, the views are still great with snow-covered villages. The visibility too, is quite strong with gleaming snow peaks smiling upon the valley.

Chepang Hill Trek Difficulty

Chepang Hill Trek is perhaps the least tedious trekking route than anywhere in the Himalayas. It’s revitalizing valleys alongside mystic forests and green terrains keep anyone traveling the region enlivening.

Walking the classic trail of Chepang is like stamping into the wildlands that offers nothing but scenic vista. Still, the vivid scenery can sometimes disappear into thin air with the season making the most contributions.

And for a season, we mean monsoon and winter which fails to provide strong visibility. Monsoon specifically brings a lot of rainstorms and cloudbursts with it on which the scenes hideaway.

The trails are also often drenched in rain, making it relatively unsafe to travel. As for the weather, it’s slightly difficult climbing uphill where the temperature gets low. Upon reaching the village, you may experience chilly weather but not as much as in Annapurna or Langtang .

Since the village lies at an altitude of 4029m , not many people suffer altitude sickness . And if any of the trekkers fall ill, it would just be mild and not much to worry about.

Chepang Hill Trek Cost

The cost of trekking to Chepang Hill won’t cost you a lot. Frankly, it’s not even half the price you pay for Annapurna Base Camp or Everest. So, how much will it actually cost you for Chepang Hill Trek? Although the cost for the trek highly depends on the itinerary, the starting price can be somewhere between $495-$500 .

Chepang Hill Trek

  • Trekking in Nepal
  • Homestay Trek

These treks are suitable for any walker looking for something a little more challenging and energetic. They are a combination of some longer and shorter walks and hill-walking experience is desirable. The duration is usually from 10 to 15 days. Following the up and down terrain of Nepal and walking to higher elevations contrasts these treks to those in the easy classification. However, you will be rewarded for your efforts with spectacular close-up views of glaciers and of the high Himalayas. Although the terrain is not difficult, some vigorous hiking experience is useful. There may be up to 6 hours a day on the trail and the elevation rises and falls from 800m/ 2624ft to 4000m/13210ft above sea level.

Succeeded Rara Lake trek batch in February 2017

Annapurna base camp trek was one of the charismatic treks that I have done, besides world’s highest mountain the most significant thing of this trek is every day changing in landscape and surroundings and as well the very important part of this trek is that I joined with professional team of Skyline treks in such landscape.

This trek in Nepal Himalayas was my first trek with Skyline and experiencing the quality of service throughout the trek provided by the company and if I rate this out of 10 I should rate as 9.9. Dheeraz as trek guide gifted by Skyline to our batch, the amount of kindness and hospitality up in the mountains is not enough to recommend for the entire team of Skyline treks.

Chepang Hill trek trail offers a rare combination of cultural and sightseeing experiences and the distinct lifestyle of the Chepang people. On the beautiful hillsides, you can encounter the semi-nomadic people called ‘Chepang’. This is a newly opened hiking trail in Nepal. This trek is part of a national development effort to empower poor, rural communities. The trail offers cultural highlights of one of the indigenous communities of Nepal. It is one of the more traditional and less-known ethnic groups. They reside very close to nature and to the Tamang caste and their way of living.

This is more focused on cultural exploration; the natural panorama cannot be ignored. The unique culture of the Chepang villages offers to see you bird watching. The Autumn and spring season is the best season for trekking in this wonderful village. Monsoon and winter are also good but in this season, we will not be able to see the wonderful land. We will also have an opportunity to explore the Chitwan national park . You will also have a jungle safari in the national park. In the national park, you will be able to see many rare animals like the one-horned rhino, Bengal tiger, Gharial Crocodile, etc.

They lead a nomadic life that encompasses hunting, digging for wild roots, fishing, and a traditional style of farming near jungles. It has unique settlements, social organization, language, culture, religion, and festivals. Everest Trekking Routes offers an exceptional combination of the culture of different ethnic groups of people who inhabit this area. This area offers many different sightseeing experiences.

At the end, I finished the trekking and am back to Hong Kong now, and I still to keep contact with them, and will get ready to join the EBC trekking with ( Everest Trekking Routes Ltd ) again, on the coming November.

That is the wonderful trekking experience of my life, I believe that if I hadn’t My guide (Sandesh) & porter (Michael) for the fully support, that I can’t be success the whole trekking, thx both of them!! and thx a lot !!!

我在2024年4月22日加入了Everest Trekking Routes有限公司的Langtang Goshaikunda湖14天徒步旅行。在整个旅程中,我的导游Sandesh先生一直照顾着我,时刻关心我,他总是愿意详细解释地理、文化、野生动物、特殊的高海拔植物等等,并分享了一些有趣的故事,这些都是我第一次听到的!

他是一位非常非常专业的徒步导游,他总是走在我前面,确保路线安全,不会迷路。有时候当马、驴或野生动物穿过徒步路线时,他会迅速做出决策来确保你的安全,否则可能会有危险。

我的导游Sandesh先生总是解决我所有的问题。有一次我太累了,步行非常缓慢,以至于无法按时到达已经预订满房间的酒店,所以他迅速为我安排了其他的住宿,幸运的是他成功了!这样我就不需要走得很远去其他的酒店,可以在最近的酒店休息,他总是为我安排一切!

在最后一天的徒步旅行中,我生病了,发烧感觉很不舒服,他给我带来了一瓶热水和一些退烧药。经过一天的休息,我感觉好多了,重新恢复了精力!最终完成了徒步旅行,回到了加德满都。

另外,我的搬运工Michael先生也非常乐于助人和友好,整个旅程中一直跟在我后面,保护我安全。Michael是一个年轻人,他非常幽默,总是面带微笑,我们经常开玩笑,分享尼泊尔的本地文化,这让我感到非常愉快。

最后,我完成了徒步旅行,现在回到了香港,我还与他们保持联系,并准备在11月再次与Everest Trekking Routes有限公司一起参加珠穆朗玛峰大本营的徒步旅行。

这是我一生中非常美妙的徒步旅行经历,我相信如果没有我的导游Sandesh和搬运工Michael的全力支持,我无法成功完成整个徒步旅行。非常感谢他们!非常感谢!

Singapore, may 7, 2024, annapurna circuit trek 2024.

Just did the Annapurna Circuit Trek . It was tiring but rewarding! The trek included Ice Lake, Tilicho Lake , and Thorong La Pass. The scenery changes with every passing town, making it an ever-changing journey. Towards the destinations, the scenery becomes out of this world with the whole mountains in your face that you can only enjoy in the Himalayan range. During this time, our guide Sukra and porter Madan have been friendly, patient, and helpful.

When I suffered from altitude sickness, Sukra swiftly brought me down and gave me garlic soup. He regularly communicates what to expect the next day in terms of intensity and things to expect. He regularly checks on our conditions and adjusts rests and pace accordingly. And he was delightful to talk to when we were resting in the lodges.

Madan carries quite a bit of our load, including water. Even if he’s carrying a heavy load, in “dangerous” sections, Madan follows and makes sure no one is lagging. (Don’t misunderstand. Porters should go ahead of the group as they carry really heavy loads but on some instances when the group is supposed to keep together, he acts as a sweeper)

He and our porter Aita were very friendly and we loved their humor. They made our trekking experience a blast. We will come back to Nepal for another trek with Bale & Aita. Further, the company „Everest trekking routes “ led by Rabin is very trustworthy and organized our trekking tour extremely well.

Singapore, january 3, 2024, 5 days mardi himal trek.

Our guide and porter (Som & Sandesh) were really friendly and fun to be with during the entire trek. It made the hike more endurable and enjoyable. They were also helpful during the entire hike, checking in on us etc. The early 5 am morning hike up to the viewpoint was not the easiest as it was steps for close to 2 hours but our guide was patient and told us slowly, one step at a time which was comforting to hear. But the view at the top was really worth it.

One small note though was that we signed up for 5 day Mardi Himal trek but based on our fitness level (realizing we hike quite fast and relatively experienced), our guide decided to compress it to 4 day hike (after day 1 of the hike) which we only realized through our conversations with him. Would have appreciated him informing us. Not much major impact as the guide booked a hotel for us in Pokhara on the last day anyway. We now gained an extra day in the city! It is also a good thing for us now to explore more things but sad to leave the mountains earlier!

3-4 day hike is manageable for most people with average fitness level. We hiked about an average 6-7 hours for first 2 days with it stretching to about 8-9 hours on the last day at an average speed for relatively experienced hikers. 5 days will be recommended for those who want to take it really slow.

Otherwise, great experience with our guide and porter and the tour company. Thank you!

We did a 12 days EBC trek with our guide Dhansingh Gurung (his whatsapp number is +977-984-34512310 on 17 Nov to 29 Nov 2023. We would like to thanks Dhansingh for making this trip possible because we are a family of 2 adults and 3 children, aged between 14-16 years old. Dhansingh had make our trekking more pleasant and easier by encouraging and taking care of the younger trekkers. I strongly recommended those people who intends to bring their younger family members to engage Dhansingh as your guide. Prior to the trip, many people discouraged me from bringing the young ones to trek 12 days to EBC! But I did not adhere to their advises and carry on the plan. Dhansingh and his team were to professional and attentive to our needs, even on the first day of arrival to Kathumuda. I reckon that there is no regrets to bring the young ones to explore the truly nature of Nepal during the 12 days EBC trek. Please contact Dhansingh if you have any questions and doubts about travelling with young family members to EBC.

I just finished the 17-day Everest 3 Pass Trek with Sushil from Everest Trekking Routes. Since day one of speaking with Rabin, all of my questions were answered & everything was properly explained. Sushil was very knowledgeable & a great guide throughout the 17 days. I loved that every single day had the most amazing views of the surrounding mountains. I highly recommend speaking with Rabin & booking your trip through Everest Trekking Routes, & I will use them again in the future. Thanks, Rabin & Sushil.

Bankok, thailand, november 25, 2023, annapurna base camp trek with rabin gurung.

If you feel it please skip to the last line. My name is Patibut Preeyawongsakul. I have been trekking since 2012. I do either individual trekking or going with a mountain guide. I was with Rabin on Annapurna Trekking in Dec 2015. Not only on the mountains but also roaming around in the city. I was with him for totally 15 days. By 4 years of my trekking around Asia (and a little hiking in the US), Rabin is the best mountain guide so far. Rabin knows how to take care of any kind of trekkers from slow ladies to teenagers. Luckily we didn’t need his first aid kit which he always carries it in his backpack. He’s expert in almost mountains’ information in Nepal (including sometimes Tibet). He can calculate the trip’s timing very precisely. We could change the itinerary on the way we walk without affecting flight schedule (we had one more day on the base camp last time.) Though, His skill still not matches his humbleness and hospitality. I had been seriously discussing with him for 6 months with nothing guarantee I’d go with him, but he happily helped me decide which route to take. He frankly showed the cost breakdown before we make a final decision. He welcomed us at the airport, and all of my team had his souvenirs on the day we flew back to our home country. If you want a short review, Hire this guy. 10/10 would go with him again.

Everest base camp and island peak climbing.

I’m so grateful that I finally finished the trekking, and this must be credited to our professional guide, Rabin! He is so nice! He cared for us so much, and greeted us with his big warming smile during the whole journey! Before this trekking, the highest place I had ever been was only 934 meters, I was so worried about high altitude problem. But In fact, my adaptability was pretty good, cuz Rabin’s trekking plan was so suitable for me that I finally reached  EBC and Kala Pattar  under the snow and strong winds! When we backed to  Island Peak Base Camp  after the summit, he brought hot drinks and biscuits and waited for us on the way, that was so sweet and we were really really exhausted and hungry at that time, he just like an angel showed up to us!. It’s a great trekking journey and I really thank Rabin’s guiding and accompanying us! We shared precious moments on this journey!.

Usa, november 25, 2023, manaslu circuit & tsum valley with rabin gurung.

Recently my wife and I visited Nepal for the eighteenth time and enjoyed a wonderful trek, one of the best treks ever, and this was largely due to our guide, Rabin Gurung ( Trekking Guide in Nepal ), with whom we also trekked around Manaslu in 2010.

If you come to Nepal with the idea of doing ‘your own trek’ with a small party, I highly recommend hiring Rabin. Not only does he have many years of experience but he is very honest and humble, so much so that one woman at a very basic lodge on our recent trek, impressed by his honesty, told my wife that “this man is a very good man, honest man, all other guide-man say lie to customers, say them that price is higher than the real price, so they can get more money.”

Rabin is always in good humor and friendly and gets along well with the local people and the porters too. Furthermore, his varied experience from his earlier years as a porter and cook helped to make him a better guide. I can’t remember how many times during our treks, when we stopped at a new or very basic lodge, or even at a tea house for lunch, when the owner’s cooking skills were at most primitive, Rabin tactfully volunteered to move into the kitchen and some amazingly delicious food would come out, made from the most simple ingredients.

Three years ago, in March of 2010, the Manaslu trek was not what it is now. Along the entire trek from Arughat (where we had to start walking), until we reached to  Annapurna circuit route , there was at that time only a single lodge with what could be called a ‘menu’, and that was the one and only lodge in Sama village at that time. All other villages either had nothing but dal bhat and perhaps chapatis, or nothing to eat and no lodge at all. We had to camp some places, but when we could, we stayed in the simple lodges that existed and he often improved our diet by cooking foods that the proprietor did not know how to cook, sometimes even such a basic menu item as an omelet, to be rolled up inside a chapati for breakfast.

This year, again in March, we decided to return to the same area, with the desire to explore the newly opened valley of Tsum. This is a lovely, beautiful valley populated by some 4000 Tibetan people, who have lived for nearly a thousand years in that inaccessible ‘hidden valley’, connected by easy passes to Tibet but until not so many decades ago, without any reasonable connection to Nepal through the truly stupendous canyons of the lower section of the valley. Indeed, many inhabitants could not speak any Nepali, only Tibetan, which made it difficult at times. We had a double permit, which if you ever want to see Tsum Valley thoroughly, I highly recommend. Most people try to do a quick one-week detour to Tsum Valley as a kind of bonus side trip on the way around Manaslu. They never know what they have missed. Some of the most interesting villages and friendliest people, and some truly awesome scenery, can be visited in Tsum valley if you have time. One week is too little time to see more than a quick glimpse of the Valley.

I and my wife have been trekking in Nepal for years, myself since 1981, and our trek to Manaslu was the first time we had ever used a guide (because it was required on that trek), despite having visited some very remote areas such as crossing the Trashi Labtsa Pass from Khumbu into Rolwaling with friends in 1982. I had doubts about using a guide, I had seen how so many of them control their clients and take a commission from lodge owners to fill their pockets, I have seen many guides from Kathmandu who knew less about the local people and places than I did. I say this not to boast but as a word of caution: there are all too few honest, humble, helpful, and experienced guides out there, and many of those who are have moved into the higher levels of trekking management and no longer guide. But from the first days, on our 2010 Manaslu trek, we were impressed by the level of experience Rabin has, and also his sensitivity in allowing us to make our own itinerary day by day. He never was angry, never showed irritation, always explained patiently what was going on, and was always in a good mood. We were a group of five at that time, and by the end of the first week, we all agreed that if we returned to Nepal for another trek requiring a guide, we would try to get Rabin again.

This is what we did in March 2013 on our visit to  Tsum Valley . Using more porters in order to have tents and extra food, we planned to visit the highest area of the upper end of  Tsum Valley   and ascend to one of the high passes overlooking Tibet. This year was plagued by poor weather and too much snow in March, however, and we were unable to do that, as were all the people who had set out to trek around Manaslu this March: the deep snow at higher elevations did not allow anyone in the first weeks of March to cross the Larkya La and go around Manaslu. But we had time, and because of the tents and food we had, we also had more options. The tents and food we used in a wonderful visit to the nunnery at Gumalungdang, up a steep side valley surrounded by the huge peaks of Ganesh Himal. We camped there for two nights, as there is no accommodation yet, and enjoyed incredible sunrise views of the nearby Ganesh Himal and also the distant great Peaks of HImalchuli, Ngadi Chuli, and Manaslu.

Tsum Valley is developing rapidly, as is the Manaslu circuit. However, particularly if you are new to Nepal trekking, don’t believe the hype that many agencies will tell you, that the Manaslu trek is the “new Annapurna circuit”. The Annapurna trek, over a period of three decades, developed a huge infrastructure for trekkers, with scores and scores of hotels, often equipped with deluxe menus and services, hot showers, laundry service, spring mattresses, etc. I think it will be some time yet before these things appear on the Manaslu trek, and if you find them in some places, don’t expect them at the next place. Tsum Valley is one step back in development yet.

One problem to watch out for is this:  Manaslu Tsum Valley’s  popularity and this can be said for Manaslu too, is growing much faster than services can be built–may be large because the road around Annapurna has grown so quickly and has put people off from that once glorious trek. We were there both times in March when there are fewer trekkers than in April or especially during the high season in October and November. In Tsum, as of March 2013, there was only one real lodge with rooms, and that was just a bit beyond Lokhpa at the foot of the valley. The other ‘lodges’ were basically beds in a side room of a local house, the largest such able to sleep ten people but others only four or five. Most villages had only one such place for trekkers to sleep, some villages had no place. When we reached Mu Gompa, in March all but one of the 80 monks were away from the valley for the winter, and furthermore, there was no food available at all. Only because we had our tents and stove and food for going higher up the valley (which we were unable to do because of snow), were we able to stay there e and eat our own food, instead of returning to Nile village the same day. The same goes for Gumbalunddang, where no food was available. if you are going o visit Tsum valley, and perhaps Manaslu too, during the busiest season, think seriously about hiring at least one EXTRA porter and having a tent, stove, and food, in case of accommodation is full! It might be worth it! Also, think of the porters: we saw many groups of two or three with a guide and a single porter carrying an enormous load, who was trailing far behind the others during the day. Many of them were unhappy with the arrangement.

In conclusion, this time with four people in our group, and with several porters and with Rabin as our guide again, we once more enjoyed what all agreed was one of the best treks we’ve ever done in the Himalayas, out of a total number of over thirty now, in Nepal and India. Rabin is an excellent choice for a guide. He is honest and will help you save money instead of trying to find ways to squeeze more for himself, he is fun and funny and friendly and all along the trails, he makes new friends with the people we meet along the way. He is experienced but doesn’t try to tell the customers what to do, he asks what they want to do, and then explains the options. If you are the type of trekker who is truly interested in Nepal, in the places, the culture, and religion and people and villages, and like to understand what is happening around you, hire Rabin as your guide, you won’t be disappointed. Indeed, like us (except for one, the same group that went around Manaslu with Rabin three years earlier), perhaps you will want to return to Nepal and go on another trek with Rabin Gurung!

Sewaktu saya ditugaskan oleh persatuan NOBAT untuk mendapatkan khidmat ‘trekking guide’ bagi ekspedisi NOBAT Himalaya 2013, saya telah menghubungi beberapa ‘trekking agent’ di Kathmandu melalui emel. Saya tertarik dengan laman web  Rabin Gurung  dan ‘testimonial’ dari beberapa individu yang penat mendapatkan khidmatnya. Rabin memberikan tawaran kos yang paling berpatutan. Dari raut wajahnya saja saya yakin dia adalah orang yang jujur dan’friendly’. Satu kelebihan lain ialah dia boleh berbahasa Malaysia.

Apabila bertemu dengan Rabin buat pertama kalinya di Kathmandu, memang sah bahawa kami telah membuat pilihan yang tepat. Sepanjang trekking, Rabin sangat professional dalam khidmatnya. Beliau flexible dan mudah diajak berunding. Kami tidak lagi menganggapnya sebagai pemandu jalan tetapi sebagai sahabat..kepada sesiapa yang ingin trekking di Himalaya, sila dapatkan khidmat Rabin. Saya percaya anda bakal membuat pilihan yang tepat. Email:  [email protected]

It was such a hard fight to join this trip. Because I had to work hard to find funding for this training. It is the first summit I attended team  NOBAT ( No Boundary Adventurers Association Sabah )  to the Himalayas with AMG ( Adventure Mountain Guide Rabin Gurung ), I gained a great experience, which Mr. Rabin Gurung was very friendly and kind as a mountain guide who experience he made this trip so enjoyable, and build a better friendship.

I would like to thank him for giving the best service to us, this is the first time I walk for 21 days hahaha. In every step, he remained faithful to accompany and not leave us, even though there are 2 people in our group who did not succeed, and he sent us back to our high camp Lobuche to support the spirit reaching the summit of  Lobuche Peak Climbing .

Nice trip and good services such as tents, food, and stories you tell about your family, it is good, and I enjoyed the trip because you protected me and my team so much.

Keep up the good work you AMG! I am happy to see and to know you! Good luck! * extra bonus able to speak Bahasa Melayu! hehe

Vancouver, british columbia, november 25, 2023, everest base camp trek with suk bahadur gurung.

Searching for the perfect company to embark on the EBC trek was not easy when doing research on who to go with. I happen to have really lucked out by choosing to go with Everest Trekking Routes, because they were great, through and through.

I did the trek in November but started inquiring with them back in February. Rabin is the CEO of the company, and he has helped me in every way possible. He was prompt in answering my questions via email and meticulously arranged the  EBC trek , which felt customized to all my needs. In person, he was kind and courteous. And my guide Suk was friendly and helpful throughout the hike. He had brought all the necessary medication for me and asked every day how I was feeling. Suk is also a very good card player and was grateful for his company on the 12-day hike/ Kathmandu City Hike.

I’m sure most of you reading this have gone with some tour company elsewhere in the world, and perhaps you might agree that most of them have treated you as simply a commodity in the assembly line. By going with Everest Trekking Routes, I never felt that. Rabin and Suk took care of me from beginning to end, and I sing all their praises for getting me to Everest Base Camp, which was a major deal for me and my friends and Family. Rabin and Suk became family to me. Thank you for everything, guys!

Everest base camp and annapurna base camp trek with rabin gurung.

This is my second trip with Rabin and I am already looking forward to a third trip with him soon. That shows how much I value his services, his extensive experiences with the treks, his honesty, and of course, the great supporting staff he have.

I feel safe and well taken care of with Rabin as my guide. He is a man with integrity and deal in a most honest way with us. This is unlike lots of horror stories you read about guides and tea-house owners collaborating to fleece hikers. We pay exactly what we consumed at the tea houses based on the published menu prices, no more and no less. With Rabin, there is no hidden cost.

With more than 20 years of trekking experience, he gave good advises on the route and safety measures to take. For example, he insisted that we started off early on a particular day so that we will reach a section with an ice sheet before the ice started to melt and traversing the ice-sheet becomes dangerous and difficult.

We have a large team of porters and assistant guides to take care of our team of 12 hikers and everyone on Rabin’s team have been extremely helpful and friendly. My teenage son enjoyed playing Uno and sliding down the  ABC  Trek  icy slope with a teenage porter, a fellow hiker who has walking difficulties was supported all the way by assistant guides and porters and our meals were all ordered in advance so the group don’t have to wait long for food to be served.

I have now used  Everest Trekking Routes  for two trips to Nepal. I can’t put my finger on anything that needs improvement. The initial communication part is spot on. They are quick to respond and I usually my questions answered on the first reply. Both times I have been greeted at the airport by a super polite guide. I’ve felt welcome and gotten all my needs tended to. On my second trip, we could not fly to Lukla, because of bad weather. Instead of waiting for the weather to clear up, they arranged alternative transport to the mountains, to avoid wasting precious days in Kathmandu.

During the trip we were very well looked after by our guide, Dhansingh Gurung who gently and efficiently took us through 21 days of trekking over diverse terrain and Sangam (Durga) our porter who was always helpful and cheerful.

Chepang Hill Trek offers you the insight to observe one of the indigenous groups of Nepal. The trek covers a diverse range of land topography, the unseen and hidden culture of nomadic Chepang people, hospitality, and craftsmanship which includes homemade wine and honey. These treks were developed to promote Chepang’s culture and livelihood. They have unique settlements, social organizations, languages, cultures, religions, and festivals.

Chepang Hill Trek is a newly opened trekking trail located in Chitwan district. It is a short and easy adventure to the marginalized ethnic community. This trek will take you to those areas where the small ethnic groups called “Chepang” live. The main aim of opening this as a new trekking trail is to promote their culture and livelihood. This indigenous group has a distinct lifestyle and is rich in cultural tradition.

They led a nomadic life which encompassed hunting, digging for wild roots, fishing, and a traditional style of farming near jungles before they took to a sedentary life with the beginning of cattle rearing and the practice of agriculture. They have unique settlements, social organizations, languages, cultures, religions, and festivals. Other than the wildlife and many species of flora and fauna in Chitwan, the Chepang hill trek is now gradually increasing its attraction for travelers.

This trip takes you to places of cultural interest and also to places which are naturally scenic. Besides the nature and culture, the most interesting thing is the homestay experience which is offered during the trek. You will have a unique experience of sharing the farm work with food and staying in a local home with the local people sharing the local organic foods. This trekking trail is completely untouched by the earlier forms of tourism. Trekking on the Chepang Hills trail leads us through the unexplored part of the Chitwan.

This trek is easy to moderate level of trekking so trekking on this trail does not require previous experience. We begin our trek with a scenic drive from Kathmandu to Hugdi which is about 80 kilometers away from Kathmandu. We ascend through the ethnic villages and farm terraces enjoying the seasonal fruits and local hospitality.

The main attraction of Chepang Hill is the Homestay offered by the local house. The Home Stay program is designed in order to generate income possibilities for marginalized people and to raise awareness about health, sanitation, and education. Chepang homestay also gives the classical taste to the tongue, you can enjoy Dhendo (national food) served with string beans, leafy greens, potatoes, wild yams, and stinging nettles.

On the next day, we commence our trek to Hatti Bang, Jyandala, Upper Dhangadi, and finally to Shaktikhor. The view like a range of Himalayan peaks such as Rolwaling, Dorje Lakpa, Gaurishanker, Langtang, Manaslu Range, Himalchuli, Annapurna range, Dhaulagiri and spectacular sunrise and sunsets can be clearly observed while trekking these areas. Bird watching and other natural attractions will make your trek memorable with friendly Nepalese hospitality and their smile. Chepang Hill trek grants a peculiar combination of unrated cultural experiences. At the end of the trekking, you will know a great deal more about the life of these isolated jungle people.

Detail Itinerary

Chepang Hill Siraichuli Trek  is a part of national development effort to empower, rural communities and women through the promotion of Eco - tourism, initiated by the Tourism for Rural Poverty Alleviation Program. The Chepang Hill Siraichuli Trek offers a glimpse into a primal culture with unique accommodations. This new trail has been explored to improve the socio- economic standing of local communities while conserving the environment and avoiding common pitfalls of Tourism expansion. The Trek Chepang Hill Siraichuli is to emphasis on use of local porters, home stays, minimal environmental impact/ resource consumption and integration with the indigenous inhabitants. This unspoiled area offers a clear view of what life in Nepal’s hills was like before the waves of modernization.  The people we will meet there living in both nomadic roots and basic system of agriculture. Chepang Hill Siraichuli Trek is therefore ideal for tourists who want to experience the beautiful and natural landscape of the Mahabharat Range combined with glimpses into a fascinating and well – preserved, indigenous culture. The Chepang Hill Siraichuli Trek is located in the Mahabharat Range of Central Nepal. It is positioned to the north of Chitwan National Park and linked via the Barabdabhar Corridor Forest. There is blending of broad leafed deciduous forest, chir- pine and the rhododendron on the way which burst into flower in the early spring. The highest point of the Chepang Hill Siraichuli trek is Siraichuli Hill (1,945m). It is cooler than Kathmandu and the Chitwan lowlands. This area is the home for 238 species of birds. The Chepang is an ethnic group of Nepal, residing the upper Mahabharat Range filled a nomadic lifestyle. Living off the rich forests of the region as hunters and gatherers, their lives were inextricably intertwined with the local environment.  The Chepangs practice a mixture of Hinduism and Animism; speak their own dialect along with Nepali in many cases. Each Chepang settlement has a holy ground, often a cave or group of stones, where prayers and sacrifices are offered to the gods. Although by some standards the Chepang people might be considered undeveloped, their strong heritage and close relationship with the land characterize this ethnic group as unique and culturally rich. We find other ethnic groups like Magars, Gurungs, Giri-Puris, Brahmins, Chhetris and Newars too in this area and  visitors will find more exposure to different varieties on foods , drinks customs and lifestyles. There are two main entrances to the Chepang Hill Siraichuli Trek: Hugdi and Shaktikhor . Hugdi is located between Mugling and Krishna Bhir on the Mugling - Narayanghat Highway. Visitors can reach this northern entrance point by bus or by 1-2 day rafting trip down the Trisuli River.The other access point from the south is Shaktikhor. This entrance is located within 2 hours of Sauraha and offers a larger variety of short and long trips for visitors.

Please feel free to contact us to get more information about the trekking in the Himalayas of Nepal.

1) What physical fitness do I need to book this trip?

Every trekking in the Himalayas of Nepal requires the certain level of physical and mental fitness. So, we advise you to be in good physical shape and able to feel comfortable while hiking up and down 7 to 12 miles per day on a trail carrying a day pack of about 10 pounds. Three things could make you confident enough for any trek you would like to do: aerobic, strength and mental.

Aerobic conditioning is important primarily because you will be trekking in thinner air, up to 40% less than at sea level. With good aerobic conditioning, you will be able to better metabolize whatever oxygen is available to you. You should plan on doing at least one hour of aerobic 3 /4 times per week for 1 month or more before your arrival in Nepal. Walking, jogging, cycling, hiking on valley floor to ridge line ascents with day back are some of the excellent forms of exercise, so long as you are strengthening leg muscles and building stamina. Speed is not the essence; stamina, confidence and continuity are. Do as much uphill as possible. If you live in flat area, go to the stadium and use the steps with your pack.

2) Do I really need to use guide to Chepang Hill Siraichuli Trek?

You are advised to use Guide so that you could feel safer in the unknown area because the guide can tell you the possible danger as they have guided in this region since long. Most importantly, the Himalayan weather is really unpredictable and the Guide can help you to take proper shelter. Nest advantage to be with Guide is you get more knowledge about local culture and you could have easy access to interact with the local people. In 2014, the Nepal Government clearly has stated that the trekkers should have a guide but still it is not seemed in the practicality.

3) How do I find Himkala Adventure for my pick up at the airport?

Our representative from Himkala Adventure will display a small board (placard) of company or your name outside the airport terminal. You will be driven to the hotel by our tourist vehicle.

4) What sort of accommodation do I get in Kathmandu?

5) How are tea house facilities during Chepang Hill Siraichuli Trek?

Tea House is the combination of guest house, restaurant, and social hang out. Tea houses in Chepang Hill Siraichuli Trek area are professional though they are simple but with neat and clean lodging offering fine views and plain but fresh and hygienic food with friendly atmosphere Most of the Tea Houses have running water facility. Many of them have hot water available for bathing. But we discourage our groups from using water heated by wood as lack of firewood in most villages is a big environmental concern in Nepal.

6) What sort of accommodation do I get in trekking?

Guesthouses/Tea Houses/Lodges provide twin sharing single and double rooms and occasionally a dormitory which is basically clean with a mattress and a quilt or blanket. Our company provides the sleeping bag if needed but we always recommend having your own sleeping equipments. You have to share the room with your group member or sometimes with unknown traveler. The toilet is always outside the room with basic facilities.

7) What sort of foods, water and drinks can I expect in trekking?

The foods in the Himalayas are very simple. There are mostly the family members themselves to cook and serve the meal. They are simply trained but experienced because they have been offering such services for many years in this busy route. The food is hygienic, fresh and delicious. We recommend you to drink mineral water or the boiled or using water purification pills or drops.

Most of the foods are cooked in the kitchen of tea houses. They serve you with different varieties of delicious Nepali and continental dishes. The most popular Nepali food is daal bhat (rice and lentils) with some mixed vegetable curry. Garlic soup is popular as it helps you with acclimatization. You could better be vegetarian in the mountains. All hotels in cities and guesthouses in trekking serve the vegetarian food. You can find all common types of drinks like hot chocolates, coffee, tea, hot lemon with honey, ginger tea, soft drinks etc. you will have your breakfast and dinner at the lodges where you will be staying and lunch somewhere on the way to your next destination.

8) What mode of transportation do I use?

We will provide the private transportation for Airport/Hotel/Airport pick up and drop and sightseeing in Kathmandu Valley. We use transportation as based on our cost inclusion section. The transportation varies depending on your requirements at the time of booking the trip.

The best season to travel in Nepal is autumn (September, October & November) & spring (March, April & May). Weather in the mountains is unpredictable. But the day temperature in Chepang Hill Siraichuli Trek is comfortable.

11) Who will be guiding me during this trip?

We provide the professional government license holder English speaking trekking guides for our entire trekking trip.

Most of the places in your tea houses have charging facilities. You can charge your devices by paying some extra money. It’s good if you bring TWO or THREE pin travel adapter and put your gadgets at warm place at night.

14) How much additional money is required for this trip?

It’s a very personal question as expenses depend on habit. Normally, in Kathmandu you can allocate about USD 10 to 15 per person per lunch or dinner. USD 10 to USD 15 per person per day will be sufficient to buy bottles of water, chocolates, pay for a hot shower during the trekking. Other personal expenses will be your own calculation.

15) What is the social and environmental responsibility of Himkala Adventure for this trip?

The situation of environment in Nepal is in considerable stage due to so many factors caused by global warming, human activities, and adverse effects of natural incidents. Nepal is in between two giant countries like China and Nepal. The ozone layer is depleting and the atmosphere is getting heated. So, its direct effect is to the Himalayas that the snow is melting day by day and the sea level is rising. It is due to population growth, people are clearing the forest and the soil is being eroded. As a part of society, and our trekking related activities are directly concerned with the social and environmental things.

We are working together with other companies and taking these issues seriously.

A helicopter evacuation might cost US$ 2500 to US$10000 depending on the places.  So that travel insurance to cover all above is must to travel in the high Himalayas of Nepal.

Itinerary Disclaimer:

Himkala has thoughtfully designed all the itineraries but our itineraries are updated for the betterment on the basis of our past travelers’ comments and our own research. In case you find changes in the itinerary you printed and the upgraded one does not affect your trip. Please note that some changes may occur in our itineraries due to bad weather and common seasonal changes to timetables and transport routes.

Physical Rating:

Your trip will be meaningful if you could find yourself fit and fine. You will be walking up to 1,945 m from the sea level The trek goes through Mahabharat hilly region. As the geographical region varies, there is a temperature variation as well. So, we advise you to undertake regular physical exercise, jogging, hiking, riding, ascending and descending the long stairs etc.

Group Size:

Himkala Adventure organizes solo to group travelers. Our group trips are designed for sharing accommodation and there is no single supplement. Single travelers share with the same gender from twin to multi-share in an accommodation. You are requested to have mutual understanding in between the fellow travelers who have joined from the different parts of the world. Please remember that you have great responsibilities in the group. If you are requested to be at a particular place at a certain time, make sure that you have been there at a time. It is much more pleasing sharing experiences and traveling together.

Accommodation and Meals:

Accommodation and Foods in the Himalayan region of Nepal cannot be compared with any developed countries in the world. We know that you might not have experienced such things before but you should take it easy. Accommodations at local lodges are simple but clean and comfortable. The food is plain. Toilets and washing facilities are shared and rudimentary. This trekking is completely home-stay based trekking through the priveleged Chepang settlement. You could enjoy the typical local food.

Money Matters:

Please note that most establishments in Asia will not accept foreign currency notes that are old, torn or faded and they can be very difficult to exchange or extra fees added when exchanging at banks. Please ensure that you have new, clean notes.

The official currency of Nepal is the Nepali Rupee (NPR). ATMs can be found only in major cities of Nepal like Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan, Bhaktapur etc. The government of Nepal has banned the import, export and use of 500 and 1000 Indian rupee notes in Nepal. You make sure that you won’t carry these notes upon arrival in Nepal, otherwise they are confiscated and you may be fined.

Please make sure that the foreign currency notes that you have are new and clean notes because old, torn or faded foreign currency notes in Nepal are very difficult to exchange or extra fees added when exchanging at banks.

While travelers cheques have security advantages exchanging them can be a lengthy process, commissions can be high (up to 10%) and they can be difficult to change in rural areas, on weekends and public holidays. If you choose to bring travelers’ cheques, make sure they are a major brand and major currency.

Tipping is not mandatory. It is not anyone’s right asking for tips but if you are happy with the service, you could tip the staffs. It is entirely a personal preference. Tipping could be significant to them who took take great care of you in your traveling period. Himkala recommends that you could tip any intended recipient by any member of the group than collected and passed on by the group leader.

Note: Please do not tip with coins or dirty and ripped notes. This is culturally taken as an insult.

Local Dress in Nepal:

Nudity is a sensitive issue in Nepal. Women should avoid wearing shorts and sleeveless tops in public places where this might be seen as inappropriate. Remove shoes before entering certain holy places. Non-Hindus are not permitted in some temples.

Your feedback will be the great guidance to meet our target and to bring improvement in our service. What and how have you experienced with Himkala Adventure and our staff? Please write, we will read it carefully. One cannot see his/her shortcomings that are lying with them. Someone should point it out. We are always eager to hear from you.

Chepang Hill Trekking is Nepal’s one of the newest trekking trails. Located on west of Kathmandu, this trekking trail offers us the opportunity to trek to the high hills and dwindling rivers. The trekking route has not yet been highly commercialized, that’s why the trail is less crowded. During our trek, we will Homestay at indigenous Chepang people. This will allow us to be part of a unique culture and tradition of Chepang people and study it in micro level.

On the other hand, we can enjoy some quality time in the hills and observe the exotic birds and animals the hills houses. This is perfect for those people, who are fond of soft trekking and want a break from the hectic schedule of the city life.

Chepangs are the indigenous people of Nepal. Backward and shy than the other ethnicity, the isolation has contributed to its culture and tradition being very preserved and intact.The trek will begin after drive from the capital to Hudikhola. From here, we will trek to Hattiban.

  • Fixed Departures

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. I definitely recommend him and his agency Himalayan Holyland Treks and Expedition to do treks and tours in Nepal.

Mr. Prakash is an honest and hardworking with the best management to make a memorable trip to Nepal until our life time. After the heritage sites visited, we went to Chepang Hill trek for 5 days which is still fresh in my mind and heart that how Chepang people live and do even in the 21th century as hunting and gathering stage people lifestyle. We explored real life and the value we had I best saw there in Prakash village and Chepang village . With Prakash family we shared lots of experiences about culture and lifestyle between two different countries . In my life time this trip is one of my best trip. All these trip is successful with the help of Prakash and his reputed tour and trekking agency Himalayan Holyland Treks and Expedition Pvt. Ltd. in Kathmandu Nepal.

The Unique Burial of a Child of Early Scythian Time at the Cemetery of Saryg-Bulun (Tuva)

<< Previous page

Pages:  379-406

In 1988, the Tuvan Archaeological Expedition (led by M. E. Kilunovskaya and V. A. Semenov) discovered a unique burial of the early Iron Age at Saryg-Bulun in Central Tuva. There are two burial mounds of the Aldy-Bel culture dated by 7th century BC. Within the barrows, which adjoined one another, forming a figure-of-eight, there were discovered 7 burials, from which a representative collection of artifacts was recovered. Burial 5 was the most unique, it was found in a coffin made of a larch trunk, with a tightly closed lid. Due to the preservative properties of larch and lack of air access, the coffin contained a well-preserved mummy of a child with an accompanying set of grave goods. The interred individual retained the skin on his face and had a leather headdress painted with red pigment and a coat, sewn from jerboa fur. The coat was belted with a leather belt with bronze ornaments and buckles. Besides that, a leather quiver with arrows with the shafts decorated with painted ornaments, fully preserved battle pick and a bow were buried in the coffin. Unexpectedly, the full-genomic analysis, showed that the individual was female. This fact opens a new aspect in the study of the social history of the Scythian society and perhaps brings us back to the myth of the Amazons, discussed by Herodotus. Of course, this discovery is unique in its preservation for the Scythian culture of Tuva and requires careful study and conservation.

Keywords: Tuva, Early Iron Age, early Scythian period, Aldy-Bel culture, barrow, burial in the coffin, mummy, full genome sequencing, aDNA
