“What makes Chitlang village tour special?”
Travelers who hike to Chitlang village tend to party with a campfire and stay up all night. Chitlang is popular among local tourists on weekends, therefore, visiting Chitlang on weekends it’s very crowded. On Fridays and Saturdays, it’s much louder and may not be as relaxing. I would recommend people plan their trips accordingly.
This walk is almost entirely uphill to Chandragiri and the remaining part of the hike is downhill or flat. Even at a slow pace, you can make it in 3 to 4 hours. Most of the hike is very easy to navigate. We at Gokyo Treks and Expedition believe in quality services. We are a team of professional, experienced, and licensed local guides who know the destination much better than others.
