All about the Chandragiri Hill Hiking.

The Chandragiri Hiking route is a recently opened route in Nepal. When it comes to popular hiking destination around Kathmandu valley, Chandragiri hike is one of the best hiking route which is a day hiking around Kathmandu. Situated at the Suthern part of Kathmandu the Chandragiri Hiking trail follows eastern range to Hattiban Resort and starts from nearby Maataatirtha Hotel Outlook Inn. Located at an altitude of 2,475m above sea level you can see the majestic mountains that include Mount Manaslu, Langtang mountain ranges, Ganesh Himal,  and Mount Gaurishankar and even the mighty Mount Everest.

If you want to finish the hike in a day it will take about 7-8 hours. The first three hours will be a steep ascend to Chhap Bhanjyang located at an elevation of 2,275 meters alongside picturesque snow covered scenery range above Kathmandu valley. Further uphill and we will enter towards the south eastern part of the Chandragiri hill view point.

The Chandragiri region is rich in flora and fauna and you can spot various species of birds and animals along the hike adding to the views from West to East of Mount Api, Mount Everest, Saipal, Mount Makalu to Kanchanjunga. The area is famous for its exotic wildlife and plant life and is home to over one hundred thirty five specific Aayurbedic plants.

Another option for this trek would be that if you wish to spend a night camping at Chhap bhanjyang. Then you will get a chance to visit the 500 meter long cave that lies at the heart of a big cliff.

We can arrange the trip to begin on any date during trekking season i.e. March through May & September through December as per your time frame.
