Chandragiri Cable Car Day Trip

Chandragiri Cable Car Day Trip

Namaste, it’s been a long that I hadn’t post anything. Too busy with many stuffs here! My friend Saugat went to Manaslu on the 3rd of November and it is just I in Kathmandu these days. I had seen many posts on the online magazine regarding the Chandragiri Cable Car Ride and today I went there! It was amazing. I saw an Everest from the top! I swear I saw it.

On the way back I went to monkey temple as well. Weather was great and view was fantastic. However they road was extremely dusty. The total road distance from Thamel to Chandragiri Cable Car was roughly fourteen kilometer. It nearly took forty minutes to reach there. Parking was well organized. There is a separate price for different nationals, see the detail below:

There is a nice cafeteria in the top next to the temple of Lord Shiva. In my opinion it is reasonably priced. Nrs 70 for the popcorn and Nrs 230 for dumpling (momo) I mentioned this cause I read news in the online media reporting that Chandragiri Hills (P) Ltd. is ripping off the people. No offence though!

What I want to say is if anyone of you likes to carry your own food then just drive or hike!

There is a new outlet of himalayan java in the base terminal. You can pay by debit or credit card for the cable car ride. Also, you can use your card for the payment in Himalayan Java Coffee. However the pre paid food stall do not accept the card for the payment.

If you are looking for a good escape from the city, I highly recommend this for a day trip. You can also drive all the way to top or hike!

You can stay overnight in Vintuna Resort, which is located right outside the main entrance of cable car terminal. You can see Manaslu and Ganesh Himal range all the time along with Langtang and Rolwaling Himalayan Range.
