Challenging family-day hike to Chandragiri

We had a family day hike to Chandragiri hill in January of 2018. That was our first ever visit to a beautiful country Nepal. After traveling around the country for a week, we planned a hike that would take a day or two to witness the enormous beauty of Kathmandu, the capital city of the country.

Exciting Nepal suggested us a day hike to Chandragiri, that would match our expectations of Panoramic and unobstructed view of the valley. We were dropped to Macchegaun early morning at 7 and after a nice warm breakfast on the base of the hill, me, my wife and our two lovely daughters started hiking right after.

Our guide, one of the experienced team members of Exciting Nepal, led us through thick jungles inhabited by varieties of birds, animal species and vegetation of its kind. He was very fun-loving, informative and generous too.

Walking in the typical Nepali stone trails, conquering steep hills was pretty challenging for my kids. The first one hour in the hike was very tough and we had to take frequent breaks as there was a long and continuous uphill trail. But the exhaustion simply vanished as soon as we got a mind-blowing view of the city and snowy mountain ranges expanding from east to the west and majestic hills surrounding the valley. After three and a half hours of hiking, we reached our destination, Chandragiri hilltop. There was an architectural Hindu temple holding religious importance standing tall on top of the hill. After wandering for an hour enjoying scenic views, we had our lunch and we left with unforgettable memories. My kids enjoyed the cable car ride a lot while returning back. We were picked up from the bottom station and dropped to our hotel in the evening by Exciting Nepal’s representatives. This whole experience was beautiful with Exciting Nepal.
