Chitlang is a small paradise about 22 km south of Kathmandu valley. Hike to Chitlang village offers a pleasant nature walking experience that exceeds your imagination. The first half of the hike takes you through a steep trail to Chandragiri and the second half runs down to Chitlang. The stunning landscape of the lush forest, Kathmandu valley and Himalayas in the north takes your breath away. After spending night at a local homestay, we leave early in the morning for Indrasarovar Lake, largest man made lake in Nepal.

Won't say this is the best Nepal has to offer. However, if you want a quick hike close to Kathmandu - you won't be disappointed.

"One of the best hikes in the vicinity of Kathmandu. Little steep initially but breathtaking scenary."
