Begin on a captivating journey with the Chandragiri Hills Cable Car Tour, a scenic adventure that elevates you to an altitude of 2540m, offering a blend of history, spirituality, and breathtaking views near Kathmandu.

Nothing can get better than boarding a cable car up to an altitude of 2540m and reaching Chandragiri Hill’s top station. The hill station is situated 7 km away from Kathmandu Valley. Chandragiri is an attractive spot famous for the holy temple of Lord Shiva, along with several restaurants, resorts, branded shops, and, of course, cable cars. The Chandragiri Hills cable car runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends & holidays. It basically covers the distance of 2.5 km to reach the top of Chandragiri Hills. This ride takes about 9 minutes.

The religious importance of this place may be the reason why Chandragiri Hill is full of people. You can witness a huge crowd, especially on Saturdays and Mondays. The Chandragiri hill also has great historical importance associated with King Prithvi Narayan Shah, the Great. He initiated the unification of smaller states into greater Nepal. It is believed that he rested on this very hill prior to his attack on the Kathmandu Valley. Chandragiri Hill is where he first witnessed the true beauty of the valley. There and then, he plotted an attack on the valley.

The Chandragiri cable car day tour starts with a joyous cable car ride from Godam, Thankot, which takes the visitors to the top of the hill station with panoramic views of the lush green forest that they can enjoy along the ride. The weather can be quite windy and cold up on the hill.

The breeze, the scenic views, and the spiritual visit to the temple on the hilltop would undoubtedly make your day better. Enjoy the best view of Kathmandu Valley from the Chandragiri Hills, and if you are lucky and the sky is clear, the majestic view of mountain ranges as well.
