Tourism in ChandraGiri

Destination: Chandragiri 


Chandragiri Hill is the second highest hill after Pulchowki. A popular hiking spot for hikers around the Valley. The perfect escape for some much-needed refreshment from the humdrum of city life. Visit to the Bhaleshwor Temple of Lord Shiva. Spectacular bird's eye view of the Kathmandu Valley and a panoramic view of the Manaslu, Ganesh, Langtang and Everest.

Best time:

It's best to go to Chandragiri when the weather condition is clear as one of the main feature of Chandragiri is sight seeing around Kathmandu. And, cable car would be operating from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm on weekdays, and 7:00 am to 6:00 pm on weekends and public holidays.

Thankot is 16kms to the South West of Kathmandu and there are local route buses, Safa Tempos and Microbuses from Old Bus Park in Ratnapark. The base station has a wide parking area and is located at Godam Chaur which is 10 minutes walking distance on the way to Chitlang from the Police Checkpost in Thankot. Thankot is almost 8kms from Kalanki on the Tribhuvan Highway.


Chandragiri Hill, located on the south-west of Kathmandu Valley, is the second highest hill after Pulchowki at 2,551 metres above sea level. With a 180 degree vista of the mountains, an astounding view of the concrete jungle that is Kathmandu Valley to the north, and the strikingly contrasting Makwanpur district to the south, Chandragiri Hill has been a popular hiking spot for hikers around the valley. And with the recent opening of the Chandragiri Cable Car, tourists and locals alike now have the option of enjoying all this beauty without having to take the uphill hike.
