Who are the “Chepang”?
Wikipedia defines “The Chepang are an indigenous Tibeto-Burman people group numbering around fifty-two thousand mainly inhabiting the rugged ridges of the Mahabharat mountain range of central Nepal. Over the past two or three generations, the Chepang have begun to slowly shift from a semi-nomadic (slash-and-burn) lifestyle to a more settled way of life, relying increasingly upon the produce of permanent fields of maize, millet and bananas. The severe topography, however, has made permanent farming difficult and the forest has remained an important (although decreasingly so) source of food for the Chepang. Historically, the collection of wild yams and tubers, fish caught from nearby rivers, bats and wild birds, and periodically wild deer hunted from nearby forests, have supplemented their need for carbohydrates and protein. With increasing population, lack of arable land and few irrigation options, despite forest supplements, malnutrition has been an historic problem for the Chepang who have often been characterized as the poorest of Nepal’s poor.”
Chepangs, also referred to as Chyobang or Chewang belong to the hunting tribe of people who hunt with the help of dogs and bow & arrow. Despite poor economy and educational background, the Chepangs have a huge cultural and religious richness as they celebrate Dashain, Tihar, and many more festivals with great joy. They are very skilled in weaving baskets and leaf umbrellas to protect themselves from rain. Every single Chepang houses own a special tree called Chyuri, since any family not having one is considered to be poor and its fruit is also their favorite. The tribe has its own unique norms and values that are immensely respected by every one of them.
As Chepang Hill Trail Trek goes through the Mahabharat range of the northern Chitwan and Chepang villages, this trek is a reflection of the true culture and heaven- like places covered with hills. The residential area is thinly populated with very scattered houses around, almost like 3 houses in a village at the most. Agriculture and animal husbandry are the sources of livelihood of this completely different land of vivid people, lifestyle and cultural entities.
The Chepang Hill Trail Trek leads to a place called “Siraichuli Peak”, the highest hill of Chitwan which is believed to give a good view of “upto the Mumbai in India” by the natives, which actually means that the hill gives you the view of the southern plain farthest upto where your eyesight catches. This trail is easy and can be the best option for short hiking with the plan to relax at one of Nepal’s most visited place, Chitwan.
