Chitlang-Kulekhani is a short trip from Kathmandu Valley, which is one of the famous tourist's destinations in Nepal. Lying 17Kms south-west of Kathmandu valley, Chitlang offers an idyllic setting to unburden oneself from the commotion of metropolitan life and relax and enjoy a pristine country life. The route to Chitlang provides an opportunity to scale the Chandragiri hill, an epoch-making a location in Nepal’s history indeed, as it was from the hill’s vantage point that Prithvi Narayan Shah had the vision to unify Kathmandu valley. This relatively short trek offers a huge number of experiences where one can catch a glimpse of various mountain ranges, multicultural villages, forests with a diverse array of flora and fauna, religious monuments and major hydropower project of the country among others. If you want to keep it short and yet create indelible memories, this trek is perfect for you.
Kulekhani is one of the most beautiful and panoramic scenery located in the Middle Mountain Zone of Makwanpur district in Nepal. Kulekhani is generally well known for fishing, hiking, trekking, and boating. Hence it has an incredible prospect of adventure tourism. Kulekhani can be reached from Kathmandu by two routeways. "By driving in a vehicle through the Dakshinkali-Hetauda Highway and the second one is by hiking around 20 km from Naubise."Among them, Dakshinkali- Hetauda highway is a most used trial for a day tour to Kulekhani via vehicles.

In May 2019, my father and I, did a trekking in Mustang with Hari Kumar Khatri as a guide and the “Mannschaft”: Nabin, Biman, Shatiman and Harkha. The trekking lasted about 20 days and we basically always slept in tends: sometimes outside the houses of the villagers and sometimes in the middle of nowhere.
Unfortunately, especially in the southern part of the Upper Mustang, people are building many roads which are literally destroying the landscape. But thanks to the knowledge of Hari of this territory, we were able to avoid the majority of the roads consequently avoiding other tourists and the traffic.
Overall, the trekking was very well organized. I really appreciated the fact that we were able to adapt the itinerary according to our preferences even during the trekking! I must add that Hari is not only a good guide but also a great cook!
This was my second trek with Hari and once again I really enjoyed it and I would for sure recommend him as a guide to somebody interested in doing a trekking in Nepal.
Thank you Hari and the Mannschaft for the great trekking and happy moments!

Wir (2Pers.) haben im Oktober/November 2019, mit Nabin als Guide, den Manaslu Trekk und das Tsum Valley gemacht. Organisation und Durchführung der Reise waren top.Die Kommunikation im Vorfeld mit Hari hat auch bestens geklappt. Es war ein unvergesslicher Urlaub und ich werde bestimmt nochmal nach Nepal kommen und dann auch wieder mit dieser Agentur unterwegs sein.
Liebe Grüße an das ganze Team
Nach 2013 (Arnapurna) war ich jetzt im November 2019 ein zweites Mal mit Hari unterwegs in seinem schönen Land.Diesmal im Sagarmatha Nationalpark.Es ging nach Gokyo.Alles war perfekt organisiert von der Ankunft bis zum Abflug. Hari war immer für uns da (3 Teilnehmer).
Besonders als ich mich auf dem Rückweg kurz vor Namche Bazar schwer verletzte.Hari hat sich fürsorglich um mich gekümmert.Organisierte den Hubschrauberflug nach Kathmandu ! Trotz meines Unfalles war es ein unvergesslicher Urlaub mit tollen Eindrücken.Hari nochmals vielen lieben Dank für alles. Ich kann nur sagen: WENN NEPALURLAUB , DANN NUR MIT HARI!!
