    • Day01

      Early morning after breakfast, you will be heading toward foot of Chandragiri Hill. Take a ride on Chandragiri cable car and walk for few minutes to reach view point or Hill top. Then get back to hill base with cable car ride.

      The entire Chandragiri Hills tour is going to be completed in only a single day, perhaps only a few hours. The day will start with breakfast in your hotel. Once you are prepared for the day tour, your driver will drive you to the location.

      As soon as you are off your vehicle, you will be guided towards the cable cars, from where you will be ascending to the Chandragiri hills at 2,551 m and 7,500 ft of height. The height is one of the highest within the valley. Once you land, you can find several places for your children to play, for you to relax, and restaurants where you can eat as you wish.

      Additionally, there are several souvenir shops from where you can take along memoirs for your loved ones. Bhaleshwor Mahadev temple in Chandragiri hills is perfect for Hindu devotees. The temple also marks both the historical and religious significance of Chandragiri, which was considered one of the four routes to Kathmandu Valley taken by the king of Gorkha, Prithvi Narayan Shah. Once you are done with your day tour of Chandragiri Hills, you will be brought down to your ride back home from the cable car again.

      Since Swoyambhunath stupa is quite close to the Chandragiri hills, you can also take a day tour there. The stupa is one of the oldest ones in Nepal and holds great significance among Buddhist and Hindu devotees. Swoyambhunath is also one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Your day tour here is completely optional and is not included in the Chandragiri Hills day tour itself.

    What is the best time to visit Chadragiri Hills?

    The best time to visit Chandragiri Hills is during spring and autumn. Summers in Kathmandu Valley are quite hot. This makes it difficult for visitors to actually enjoy their day tour without having a hard time in the sun. Considering the fact that the day tour involved walking outdoors without shade or protection from the heat, summer is not as preferable of a time to visit Chandragiri Hills.

    At the same time, since Chandragiri Hills is located at a chilly height, chances are, you will not have a good time in the freezing cold up there. The temperature at the top of the hills automatically drops, and winters just might not be the best, especially if you have children.

    On the other hand, spring and autumn are both considerably good. The weather is clear in both seasons. Plus, the temperature is neither unbearably hot nor too cold. It becomes easier to adjust to the dropping temperature with an adequate amount of layering, and mild sun or heat is never a problem.
