Chitwan’s Chepang Hill trail offers a good chance to learn the rare culture of the indigenous Chepang people who are still follow very primitive forms of lifestyle. Besides Chepang, many local communities also live in this mid hill region. The main attraction of this tour is that it offers a chance to stay in the local homes and share their meals.
