Chandragiri Hiking is a new, captivating hiking destination in Kathmandu. The hike offers an unparalleled experience compared to other hikes in the area. Chandragiri Hill is a lush, evergreen hill to the south that showcases the true beauty of nature. Along the way, hikers will be able to take in the picturesque views of the Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Langtang, Gaurishankar, and Everest ranges. It’s the perfect spot for a panoramic view of the Kathmandu valley and a sublime feeling. The temperature at Chandragiri Hill can be chilly, and the hike takes around 5 to 6 hours, passing through dense forests and climbing thousands of stone steps.

Chandragiri day hiking is not only rich in natural beauty but also in medicinal herbs. It’s an ideal spot for birdwatching, with various species of birds to observe. It’s also possible to combine a cable car ride with the hike. You can hike to the top of the hill, take in the views, and then return via cable car.

This hike is suitable for families, and it’s a great option for those with a limited amount of time in Kathmandu who still want to experience the best of hiking in the Himalayas. Even though Chandragiri Hill is a new, one-day hiking destination, it’s a must-visit spot in Kathmandu for hiking enthusiasts.
