Chandragiri and Chitlang  hiking one night stay at Chitlang.

The journey starts from the Thamel to Chandragiri cable car station, a famous hill station in Kathmandu valley. Once we reach there, the hiking starts towards the Chandragiri Hilltop. The hill provides panoramic views of Kathmandu Valley and the Himalayan ranges from Annapurna to Everest. Chandragiri hill lately has become a fascinating tourist destination thanks to the establishment of cable cars. The next stop on the hike is Chitlang, an ancient Newari settlement in Makwanpur district. Different artistic monuments, pagoda type of roofs and unique craftmanship around the place offer a fascinating charm. We continue our hike all the way to Kulekhani (dame side). This place is famous for Indrasarobar, the largest manmade lake in Nepal. Boating and fishing like activities have attracted visitors here for years. Overnight at lodges. After taking a small breakfast we will continue start drive to our way back to the Kathmandu Valley.

We first take about 30-40 minutes to drive to Chandragiri cable car station, our start point of the hiking. We start hiking towards Chandragiri Hills top (2729m) which is an old temple site but have been a new popular touristic site lately after the establishment of the Cable car. The area is full of natural greenery as it has a lush sub-tropical forest with verities of flora and fauna. It's about 4-5 hours hike through some minor hills, lush jungle, a small village at Chhap Bhanjyang (you may be lucky if find a local shop to have a cup of relaxing tea/coffee here). Chandragiri Hill which is a very beautiful site with Bhaleshwor Mahadev Temple, restaurants, park site, etc. On a clear day, you can observe spectacular mountains views from east to west including Mt. Gaurishanker, Dorje Lakpa, Langtang mountain range, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Mt. Everest, API, etc. After enjoying lunch together with the beauty ul views of Chandragiri Hills, the Himalayan views, then we hike down towards Chitlang. Chitlang is an ancient village which still has lots of evidence like ancient temples, rest houses artistically made, stone water taps, some of the rudraksha farm, etc., that proves it was a civilized society in ancient time. There are some lodges to stay and Chitlang Village also gives you an opportunity of the homeland, where you can interact and get an insight into the rural life in Nepal. Historical sites like Pauwa, Saat Dhara (seven water taps), Shiwalaya, and some other archeological monuments gives you more pleasure during the staying in Chitlang. Overnight in lodges at Chitlang.
We have breakfast and start our hike relaxed. After about one and half hour's hike, we reach Kulekhani. Khulekhani has the biggest artificial Lake (dame) in Nepal made to produce hydroelectricity. The lake's name is Indrasarobar (sarobar means lake). We can enjoy boating in the lake. Then after lunch, we drive back to Kathmandu. We pass through Dakshinkali Temple (temple of Hindu Goddess) and a Buddhist monastery in Pharping. We may take opportunity to explore around the temple and monastery if we prefer to. Continue drive back to Kathmandu.

Doing treks in Himalayas of Nepal is a distinct culture and environment. Trekkers need to consider on following do’s and don’ts.


  • Do smile and greet the local people by saying “Namaste” and “Tashi Delek” to show respect.
  • Do walk in a group or keep a distance that you could see your front and behind a fellow.
  • Do consult with your trekking guide before trying anything new during the trek.
  • Do ask a question to the guide for the next day trekking necessity, so that you could pack in your small backpack because rest baggage will carry by a porter and will get only in the evening.
  • Do give a donation to the monastery in the trekking area where they don’t collect tickets from the visitors but there is a donation box.
  • Do inform your trekking guide if you are not comfortable with your health while approaching a higher altitude.


  • Don’t underestimate the local culture and belief even if you find it uncomfortable with it.
  • Don’t take a picture of the people without their permission during the trek because some individual doesn’t like that.
  • Don’t be strange if local people stare at you because they are surprised to see you, not with a bad intention.
  • Don’t expect too many facilities in the trekking areas, most places provide you only the basic facilities.
  • Don’t harm wild animals, birds, and plants during the trek and take a global responsibility to save the environment.
  • Don’t give money to the children and the beggars; it encourages them to beg from the visitors.
