Chitlang is an ancient Newar village that dates back to the Lichchavi era, where people known as Gopalis are the ancestors of monarchs from the Gopal era. Amshubarma, according to the inscription, gave the land to shepherds and founded a community for them in Chitlang's Toukhel, Nhulgaun, Kunchhal, and other places. The traditional Newari houses, art, architecture, stupa, and chaitya, as well as the village itself, are among of Chitlang's main attractions, and most visitors come to stay at Chitlang Organic Village Resort. On the route to Chitlang, we pass by the Goat Cheese Factory, one of Nepal's original goat cheese producers.

Kulekhani dam, also known as Indra Sarovar, is located around 40 kilometers from Kathmandu and provides urban people with a break from the capital's hustle and dust. The Makwanpur Dam, with its clear, emerald waters and little hills surrounding it, is an ideal location for camping. It is a man-made dam in southern Nepal's Narayani Region that holds 85,300,000 m3 (69,200 acres) of water. The dam was created to generate energy, but it has also provided natural beauty and a unique setting that has attracted many visitors from the country throughout the year. The panoramic view of the Dam site is breathtaking, and the very first sight of the Kulekhani Lake steals our hearts. For the people of Kathmandu and Hetauda, Kulekhani Lake/Dam is an alternative or a second fewa taal.
