The Chepang Hills in Chitwan, Nepal are isolated and beautiful, but life is tough for the people who live there.  It is only reached after an approx. 6-hour trek from the trailhead. It represents a forgotten region of Nepal, missing out on the help provided to more popular and accessible areas.

Time will be also be spent in Sauraha running training programs at some other villages (Padampur and Manihari).

We will also spend a few nights in a village located on the edge of the jungle, close to the Indian border. Pandaynagar is a 3-hour journey from Sauraha. It is isolated but a local lady provides basic, clean and safe homestay accommodation.

There will be also time for lots of fun activities including tours of Kathmandu’s cultural sites and a jungle safari in Chitwan National Park.
