Chimtipur Village is situated in Patalkot valley, a deep gorge, and is surrounded by a dense forest. Patalkot is the abode of tribes skilled at using the forest plants to make effective medicines. The tradition of shifting agriculture among the indigenous tribe brought a group of families to this place from the interior parts of Patalkot. These families who were well aware of the significance of natural resources settled here and started protecting the patch of Reserve Forest. In the year 2000 a Forest Protection Committee was formed in the Village by the Forest Department under the provision of Joint Forest Management system. The FPC now works in collaboration with the Forest Department to protect the Reserve Forest.
