Grand opening of Chandragiri cable car

image001 image003Chandragiri Hills Ltd on Thursday organised a special programme to mark the official launching ceremony of the cable car service. The cable car that was in test-operation since August 8 was officially inaugurated by the Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal.
Invited as chief guest during the programme, PM Dahal enjoyed the moment and performed a brief dance with the local artists. Chandragiri is seven kilometers from Thankot, which lies on the south-west of Kathmandu valley. The 2.5 kilometer journey passes through a spectacular forest and natural landscapes. On top of Chandragiri hill there is Bhaleshwor Mahadev’s Temple, view tower and a resort.
At an altitude of 2,540 metres from the sea level, the hilltop offers a breath taking view of the Himalayan range and lush green forests. The surrounding hills are often blanketed by fog with chilly winds blowing. On a clear day, a row of Himalayan peaks extending from Annapurna in the West to Everest in the East can be seen from the top. A one-way ticket costs Rs 450 and it costs Rs700 for a two-way ticket. Foreigners are charged $22 per person, while the price for Saarc nationals is IRs700.
