Full description

Meet the group in central Kathmandu and travel one hour to the base of the Chandragiri Hills. Hop in a cable car for the 2551-meter ascent into the hills and enjoy panoramic views of Mount Everest and the Himalayas. Breathe in the fresh mountain air and, with an experienced guide, discover one of the most important Hindu temples, the Bhaleshwor Mahadev, believed to possess wish-granting powers.

Learn the history and legends of the hills that are said to have given Prithivi Narayan Shah the spiritual powers necessary to annex the valley into his kingdom and hear stories about the famous Gorkhali King and his clever disguise.  Enjoy lunch on your own before descending by cable car for the return transfer to Kathmandu.
