Chandragiri Hill holds significant historical and religious importance, attracting both residents of the capital and tourists from abroad. The name 'Chandra' is derived from Chandragupta Maurya, who visited this site around 300 BC to seek spiritual solace with Shruthakevali Bhadrabahu. Legend has it that while Lord Shiva roamed carrying the body of Sati Devi, her forehead fell at the location of present-day Chandragiri. Despite the mythical origins, the breathtaking panoramic views of the Himalayas, including Mt. Everest and Mt. Annapurna, are visible from the hilltop. It offers one of the best vantage points to observe the Kathmandu valley. Apart from the scenery, Chandragiri is known for its beautiful parks. Since the introduction of the Cable Car in 2016, the influx of visitors has significantly risen. Families with children frequent the area, while couples enjoy the romantic ambiance amidst nature.

After soaking in the beauty, visitors can return via cable car or opt for a hike down, concluding the tour with a private car ride back to the hotel.
