“Almost all hills around the Kathmandu city I have reached to” I pompously said to one of my friends. He quickly retorted, “Have you been to Chandragiri?” I had to say, “Only Nearby” as I have not exactly been there, as while going to Chitlang via nearby area could not be considered being really at top of Chandragiri.

With the advent of rainy season, going for hiking has not that favourable as slimy trails might not be as good to scale up. Walking, with the tickles of sweat, has no any alternative for having pleasant walk towards the hills. But, this time cable car (a modern rope-way) helped me to reach to Chandrgiri which has been a new experience for me as a Cable car rider. I have gone to Manakamana Temple by walking via those nice steps and not via cable car.

After the successful business of cable car service in Gorkha District connecting Khaireni to Manakamana Temple , Chandrgiri Cable car is second (as I Know!) in a row and has just done a soft lunch.

From Kathmandu, you can catch a cab or a public bus or take out your own SUVs or Sedans for an hour’s drive to the base of Chandragiri, Thankot, Godam.

 

After a 700 Nrs’ ticket purchase you have to stand in a queue for your turn to enter inside a red box. After 10 minutes of hanging, you reach to the top to have an awestrucking view of Kathmandu city.

 

Rest would be explained by the pictures below:
