Chandragiri Hill Nature Day Hiking from Kathmandu

Most people don’t realize you can see the mighty Himalayas from the rim of the Kathmandu Valley. The Chandragiri Hill Nature Hike begins at 9.00 am with a cable car ride to the top. After a top, it is a pleasant walk along the ridge for more incredible views before the mountains before descending down an easy trail through the jungle. This is around a five-six hour adventure in the rim of Kathmandu valley.

Note: If the Cable Car is closed due to a technical problem or festival time client can take an alternate tour suggested by the local operator.

    At the top, take some time to gaze over the mountains or enjoy a meal at the world-class restaurant at the top (Meals are not included in the cost). From here, the trail follows the ridge for around two hours for more fantastic views of the Mighty Himalayas.

The total trekking time is just three hours.

    The views are great, the journey wonderful and the experience truly magnificent. Allow five-six hours for this Kathmandu scenic adventure. This is the best ever experience for day hiking around Kathmandu.
