Chandragiri day hiking is one of the best days hiking around Kathmandu. It is 7 kilometers from Thankot and lies on the southwest side of Kathmandu valley.
The 2.5-kilometer cable car ride takes 9 minutes to reach Chandragiri hills' top station. On the top, there is one temple''Bhaleshwor Mahadev" which belongs to shiva(god of god). And you can also see the statue of Prithvi Narayan Shah. The statue of king Prithvi Narayan Shah, among others, is one of the main attractions for visitors. A full-figure statue of Prithvi Narayan shah attracts visitors of all ages and there is a hurry to have a photograph with the statue, which stands holding his first finger. There you can find a children's park, food court, hotels and many more. You can also spend more days according to your desire.
It's a perfect day tour for a lifetime memory. You can enjoy the stunning view of mountains, appreciate the beauty of nature, landscape view of green hills, and also a vast range of flora and fauna with wildlife. The clean environment of Chandragiri hill makes you different and can feel relaxed in your mind. Also, you can view the panoramic view of the Langtang and Ganesh Himal ranges. The best time to visit Chandragiri is all season except monsoon.
