Estimated reading time: 6 minutes

Embark on an exhilarating journey just 30 minutes west of Kathmandu, where Chandragiri Hills awaits with its stunning cable car adventure, promises a blend of natural beauty, historical significance, and panoramic views of the Himalayas.

Cable Car Adventure

Begin your day by indulging in a thrilling cable car ride that unveils the picturesque landscape of Chandragiri Hills. Admire the stunning scenery as you reach the mountain’s peak.

Historical Significance

Perched atop Chandragiri Hill, the distinguished Hindu temple of Bhaleshwor Mahadev, unfolds a mythic narrative. Legend has it that Sati Devi, Shiva’s first consort, made the ultimate sacrifice at Daksha Prajapati’s yagna, provoked by Daksha’s insult to Shiva. In his grief, Shiva, unaware of Sati Devi’s body decomposing, bore her lifeless form. Bhaleshwor Mahadev Temple believed to be erected where Sati Devi’s forehead (Bhala) fell, stands as a sacred homage site, drawing Hindu pilgrims seeking solace and divine blessings.

Chandragiri Hill embraces spiritual significance and intertwines with the history of Nepal’s unification. This lush expanse is where King Prithivi Narayan Shah, the visionary architect of Nepal’s unity, cast his eyes upon the enchanting Kathmandu Valley. Captivated by the breathtaking panorama, King Shah was inspired to annex the valley into his burgeoning kingdom, leaving an indelible mark on the region’s historical tapestry.


At 2520 meters, Chandragiri Hill offers stunning panoramic views of the Himalayas, including Ganesh Himal, Gauri Shankar, Langtang, Everest, and Kanchenjunga. 

Best Time To Visit

Winter (Dec – Feb): Chandragiri transforms into a snowy paradise. The hills are draped in a pristine white blanket, offering a perfect setting for snow enthusiasts.

Spring (Mar-May): Witness a burst of vibrant colours as rhododendrons, Nepal’s national flower, bloom. The hills transform into a mesmerizing canvas of colours against the majestic Himalayan backdrop.

Autumn (Sep – Nov): Experience clear skies, crisp air, and breathtaking views of the Himalayan peaks. Autumn provides optimal visibility and comfortable temperatures, creating a serene atmosphere for exploration.
