This is a truly amazing trip as you ride effortlessly to the top of Chandragiri Hill (Elev. 2520 m). The trip will start as you travel from your hotel by private vehicle. The cable car starts at 8.00 am in the morning and closed at about 5.00 pm daily. The ride to the top takes just 10 minutes of truly breath-taking scenery as your gondola rises above the dense jungle below. As you climb higher, the mountain ranges become more and more visible.

On top of Chandragiri Hill, walk around and enjoy the magnificent view. Here you will find the Bhaleshwor Mahadev Temple, a sacred Hindu pilgrimage site that honors Sati Devi, the first wife of Lord Shiva.

Enjoy a delicious lunch at one of the finest restaurants in all of Kathmandu (meals are not included in the price). The food is excellent and the scenery is outstanding. Finally, return to your private car by cable car, traveling down the mountain before taking the short 30-minute ride back to your hotel.

Unfortunately the weather was against us but the cable car ride was fantastic and very safe rising to a height of 2,500m from Kathmandu at 1,300m. We were up in the clouds but the restaurant on the top serves great meals and the view between the clouds was great.
