Chitlang Organic Village Resort
An ancient Newar village in Nepal, Chitlang is dominated by a tribal, and cultural group called the Newar. It holds a rich historical significance since it was one of the most popular stops on the old trade routes from Tibet to India, surrounded by the Chandragiri mountains. Located only a short distance from Kathmandu, Chitlang is the most popular hiking destination. The area is home to more than 100 species of birds, making it a heaven for ornithologists.
Mr. Debendra Nepal is credited with starting tourism in Chitlang with Chitlang Organic Village Resort, the first resort founded at Chitlang in 2010.
Chitlang’s cold can be easily digested by the warm welcome of homestays and resorts. Additionally, travel fatigue disappears quickly. Homestays and resorts offer a host of sights and tranquil landscapes throughout the day, including historical and cultural village tours, campfires, and dances.

Many internal tourists search for Chitlang Homestays to learn more about the culture, traditions, and lifestyle of the people of Chitlang Village.
The term “homestay” refers to fooding and accommodation at home of people from the area concerned which aren’t intended to serve customers.
The Chitlang Homestays offer a glimpse into the daily activities of the people of the chosen home, such as what is served, how it is made, and how it is arranged for dining.
The following are common to most Nepalese homes, too, if you’re thinking of chitlang homestays.
- Generally, in villages, food is not cooked with gas cylinders, and gas stoves. Rather, wood is used for fire, and a special type of stove called “CHULO” is used.
- You aren’t going to eat by sitting on Table. You’re supposed to sit on the Ground in which a Special type of sheet is laid. In Nepali, We call it “Gunri”. Gunri is basically made up of Paddy Straw. If you would like to know how it was made, You can watch this Video: Nepali Gundri of paddy straw in Rural Nepal.

Chitlang is also known for its connection to Nepal’s greatest poet, Laxmi Prasad Devkota. Laxmi Prasad Devkota had written the song “Kun Mandir Ma Janchau Yatri” (which basically means “Which Temple do you go to?” in English) in 1998 while living in Chitlang.
During his visit to Makwanpur, Devkota saw pilgrims on their way from India to see Pashupati Darshan, which prompted him to compose the song. His fountain of water and stone can still be seen today.
Chitlang as a Place on Major Trading Route Before Tribhuwan Highway
Prior to the construction of the Tribhuvan Highway, or byroad, traders used to cross the Chitlang trails to gain access to the valley as a major trading route. The ancient foot trail that extends from Thankot to Chandragiri Pass, Chitlang, and Kulekhani has lost its glory after the highway was constructed in the south. The ancient foot trail, however, has lost its glory as a result of the construction of the highway.
Chitlang Bounce Back as Tourist Hub
The tourism sector in Chitlang is booming, with more than a dozen homestays and half a dozen resorts operating in Chitlang as well as two new resorts being constructed. This indicates that investors are investing a lot of money in the sector.

The village of Markhu will soon become a tourist village. The village of Chitlang is home to over 1,000 visitors per week, according to Tara Bahadur Basnet, president of the Homestay Operators Committee.
Major Attraction of Chitlang
Get Close With Nature
In Chitlang, you will often see hills teeming with greenery. This famous landmark- intriguing pear farms- is often evident in social media posts.
In any case, I would like to point out that here, at the crack of dawn, you can enjoy peaceful walks because the light of the rising sun gradually chases away the darkness, and the surrounding hills become stunningly green as a result. It is also worth mentioning that you might like to explore the nearby forest, which is home to many birds. Bird watching is definitely one of the things that you should not miss when in Chitlang.
There are fine wood carvings on the bricks that make up this ancient structure, which is located in the second ward of the village. Nepal’s fine arts, artistry, and craftsmanship are reflected in the décor of the building. In addition to the decorative artistic pillars and the Tunal Arts, the architectural style of the building is also noteworthy.
Architectural resources of cultural tourism are in urgent need of renovation and conservation due to their deterioration. Located on the extreme north-east side of Chitlang, this legendary structure is situated near Bhimphedi, a strategic point for the journey to and from Kathmandu before the advent of the modern world. It is an ancient temple dedicated to Shiva, with three Gajurs.
In the Thaha Municipality, this temple was built by King Asoka of Magadh during the Kirat era when he came to Nepal. He also built several other Chaitya temples during this time as well. Every year, on the occasion of Buddha’s birthday, the Buddhists of Kathmandu gather here to celebrate.
Kartik Purnima Naach
Chitlang’s Naach culture, also known as Kartik Punhi Jatra, is one of the most famous in the world. This is the oldest culture of the Newars, and is celebrated not only for the sake of preserving its history, but also to attract tourists. This “Naach” is for five days and took place in Mazgaon Chitlang-5. The dance “Naach” is beautiful and attractive and worships several gods and goddesses at the same time.
Traditionally, the seven stone taps close to the gods Ganesh, Shiva, Krishna, and Saraswoti were used to provide water for the gods. This is why the name ‘Saatdhara’ is derived. Almost all of the Katush trees surround the place, creating the illusion of a natural garden.
A colorful festival is celebrated at Satdhara every year on the day of Basanta Panchami where the locals worship Goddess Saraswati and pay their respects.
It lies at a distance of 5 KM from the resort and is the largest grazing land in Nepal. Previously, there was sheep farming there. Chitlang has taken the initiative to make goat cheese with the assistance of the firm.
As a result of goat milk, the goat cheese factory in Nepal is well known and important. This industry is also well established in Chitlang. In addition to earning income, this industry produces the majority of the cheese in Nepal and distributes it throughout the country.
Explore The Neighbourhood
Upon entering yet another part of Chitlang, you will experience a variety of cultures and lifestyles because it is a hushed neighborhood home to various castes. Old brick structures in some parts of the village are adorned with dried chili and maize hanging on the window sills, as if they were taken from a Newar settlement in Kathmandu, while others have been painted brown organically.
It is a quaint village full of surprises, from hidden waterfalls to abandoned old houses.
