Chandragiri is a hill station inside Kathmandu valley that lies 7 kms away from Thankot and at an elevation of 2551 m. The hill provides panoramic views of Kathmandu Valley and the Himalayan ranges from Annapurna to Everest.
The Chandragiri Hill was an ancient trading route that went through kulekhani, chitlang, chandragiri pass and Thankot. The Bhaleshwor Mahadev temple at the top of the hill is where King Prithvi Narayan Shah worshipped the god before conquering the valley.
Today Chandragiri hills is one of the most visited sites in the country. The access to the site has been made a lot easier by establishment of the 2.4km Cable Car to the top. Besides the Panoramic view of the himalayas, activities to entertain and amuse guests of all age groups, the location now stands as the ultimate fun destination.
But the project has no intentions of stopping just there. By the end of 2018, a 100-room boutique resort, an adventure park including two, 900 meter, ziplines and a natural history exhibition gallery, exploring the bio-diversity and the environment of the area, will be inaugurated.
