The Chandragiri hill also has great historical importance associated with King Prithvi Narayan Shah, the Great. He initiated the unification of smaller states into greater Nepal. It is believed that he rested in this very hill, prior to his attack on the Kathmandu Valley. Chandragiri hill is where he first witnessed the true beauty of the valley. There and then, he plotted an attack on the valley.

The Chandragiri cable car day tour starts with a joyous cable car ride from Godam, Thankot which takes the visitors to the top of the hill station with the panoramic views of the lush green forest that they can enjoy along the ride. The weather can be quite windy and cold up on the hill. The breeze, the scenic views and the spiritual visit to the temple at the hilltop would undoubtedly make your day better.
