The hills of Chandragiri are also historically significant. From these hills, King Prithvi Narayan Shah first saw a very picturesque and prosperous valley of Kathmandu, which instilled in the king's spirit the idea of annexing this valley to his kingdom. Folklore holds that Prithvi Narayan Shah gathered spiritual powers for the unification process after undergoing a rigorous "sadhana" or meditation in these hills. As he climbed the hills, King Gorkhali disguised himself so that he would not be recognized by the Malla kings of the Kathmandu Valley.

Chandragiri Hill, about 7 kilometers from Thankot, is located southwest of Kathmandu Valley. At 2551 meters above sea level, the hill offers high peaks and breathtaking views of the entire Kathmandu Valley, which is covered in lush flora. From Chandragiri, you can see the Kathmandu Valley and the Himalayas, which range from Annapurna to Everest.

The view tower, located 2,551 meters above sea level, provides an unobstructed 180-degree view of the majestic Himalayas. Everyone should visit Chandragiri Hills. The children's playground is equipped with exciting recreational equipment such as climbing ropes, swings, slides, seesaws, and a jungle gym to keep your children entertained. Both the bottom and top stations have souvenir shops that sell a variety of clothing brands and cultural merchandise that is reasonably priced and makes excellent souvenirs of your visit. If you're looking for a day trip from Kathmandu, Chandragiri Hill is a great place to start. Here are the two routes we can take to get there:

Chhap Bhanjyang has a plethora of local tea shops where you can smell the delectable masala chai from miles away. You'll be walking through the forest after a quick tea break in Chap Bhanjyang. After about an hour of walking, you will arrive at your final destination, Chandragiri Hill.
