Chitlang is an ancient Newar dominant village in Nepal. Surrounded by the Chandragiri hills, it is acclaimed as one of the most popular stops in the old trading routes from Tibet to India and thus holds a rich historical significance. Chitlang serves to be the most preferred destination from Kathmandu for hiking. It is home to more than 100 species of birds, making it a haven for ornithology.
Inspired by Laxmi Prasad Devkota, writer of ‘yatri’ – a Nepalese poem, Chitlang also attracts poets who find serenity in this natural paradise. The homestay experiences and a taste of the hilly life are especially popular here. The people of Chitlang do goat farming and goat cheese is the most popular dairy product of the village. Goat Cheese Homestay, of Ashok Singh Thakuri and family, is an interesting place to stay and learn the process of cheese making and taste organic plum and ground apple wine.
