About Chandragiri in Kathmandu
Less than an hour’s drive away from Kathmandu city, Chandragiri hilltop is a mesmerising tourist location, enriched with equal amounts of natural beauty and cultural significance. The view of the entire Kathmandu valley can be seen from up there. It is said to be so beautiful that when King Ranjit Malla had to leave his kingdom defeated, he took one last glance at it from here and broke down into tears. The great Gorkhali king Prithvi Narayan Shah also decided to annexe the valley after seeing it from Chandragiri hills. At 2500 km on the top of Chandragiri Nepal, the entire stretch of all the great Himalayan mountain massifs can be seen. For an even better glimpse, there is a view tower with binoculars. From west to east runs the great Annapurna, Nepal’s favourite trekking destination Mount Manaslu, the mighty Ganesh Himal and then the magnificent Langtang Himal. With a clear sky, one might even catch a glimpse of Mount Everest.
Cable Car Ride:
One of the main attractions here is the cable ride up the slope. From the foot of the hill, the Chandragiri cable cars take tourists up to the top smoothly. The spectacular 360°C view of the valley and the mountains are absolutely worth the money spent on the ticket. The journey is only of 10 minutes and covers an ascent of 2.5 km.
Bhaleshwar Mahadev Temple:
At the top of Chandragiri hill Nepal, the tourists are greeted with the Shiva shrine of Bhaleshwar Mahadev. This temple is said to have been built over goddess Sati’s forehead. It was part of a very important chapter in Hindu mythology when a bereaved Lord Shiva roamed all around the universe with his consort’s corpse in arms. This temple atop Chandragiri Kathmandu boasts true Newari architecture with wooden carvings and an antique vibe. There is a statue of Prithvi Narayan Shah outside – the king Lord Shiva had blessed to win over the Valley of Kathmandu.
