Located on the outskirts Kathmandu valley, CHANDRAGIRI HILL in Thankot is 16 kilometers away with approximately 30 minutes drive from the capital city. The recently introduced cable car project has made the top of the hill accessible like never before. The cable car project is around two and a half kilometers from near Godam at Thankot which takes around 9 minutes to reach the top. People used to drive through seven kilometers of rough road to reach the hill top or hike three-hour to reach to the “Bishnu Devi Temple” on the top of the hill. Now both the domestic and international tourists with this new project completion are offered a new and accessible destination around Kathmandu valley. The destination will be an ideal place to visit for tourists with a free day in Kathmandu.
Chandragiri Hills Pvt.Ltd has recently begun Cable Car service, Restaurants, Amusement Park, Resort, Multipurpose hall and Branded Shops in Thankot Kathmandu, Nepal. Chandragiri being one of the nearest hill station providing a spectacular view of mountain ranges has the potential of establishing itself as a major tourism attractions destinations in Kathmandu valley, for all kind of tourists seeking the best of Kathmandu within short time frame.
