In 2007, while on a trip to Chobhar Hills, Mr. Hem Raj Dhakal shared one of his deepest wishes with his brother and his team. He wanted to craft an integrated tourist destination in Kathmandu, which would be a core holiday memory for millions of Nepali families.
From a seed idea to becoming the dream destination that it had always sought out to be, Chandragiri Hills has come a long way.
Throughout the journey there were many bottlenecks, one being the 2015 earthquake. Contractors had already broken ground and the construction was underway. Eleven towers had stood along the 2.5 km stretch of wilderness, with a steep elevation of 1,000 meters from the bottom station to the top. Then they were tested by the two strong earthquakes of April 2015. The construction was unscathed.
By July 2016, the cable car installation, the construction of the parking areas, the bottom and top stations, view tower, restaurants & bar, and the stunning Bhaleshwor Temple was complete. In the years since then, Chandragiri Hills Ltd has established itself as one of the most wholesome retreats in the country, featuring activities to entertain and amuse guests of all age groups, and a stunning resort to host guests to this gorgeous hill.
Today, Dhakal brothers’ & their team’s dream project is a reality that truly is for everyone!
