Chandragiri Hills flanks the South-Western Part of Kathmandu valley which is very popular for its Hiking Experiences for tourists. One of the famous tourist destination near to the Kathmandu valley really lures people with its Natural Beauty. With an altitude of 2520m above sea level it has been notorious for sightseeing from that height. From above the hill, one can relish the stunning beauty of Kathmandu valley in a single view.

Hiking is a natural exercise that promotes a healthy living and physical fitness along with freshness in mind.

Hiking is a natural exercise that promotes a healthy living and physical fitness along with freshness in mind. It was Saturday morning and we decided to travel to Tribhuvan park from our office. We reached there by 9.15 AM approx. and decided to have breakfast over there. After finishing our breakfast, we headed to our route i.e. Tribhuvan park to Chandragiri. We started our hike by carrying basic snacks, chocolates and drinking water for our self at approx. 10 AM. Our steps towards the destination was quite tough because of bright sunny day and the heavy steps ahead but the music system and the boy’s lampooning made the route very interesting and even the tiredness was little minimized because of the interesting moments we had there.

At around 11.30 we stopped by a tea shop and had a short tea break. As we also carried some food with us, we had those too over there. After taking around 30 minutes of rest we started to follow our route. Taking photographs and gossiping, we walked slowly to follow the path. It was literally the path through the jungle and straight upward with not a single plain route. The heavy stones and bumpy route made our hike really hard. Not even a brisk walk was possible because of difficult trails. But these difficulties were overcome by Divya sister’s DSLR. Posing everywhere and capturing all the natural beauties was the best part of the hike.

After walking around 1.5 hrs, we decided to take a short tea break as the route was very difficult and everyone was very tired. Taking around 30 minutes of break, We again started to walk. By this time the difficult path had already crossed and the route was comparatively easier than before. Slow by slow and step by step, we finally succeed to reach the top of Chandragiri Hills. We took a short rest and refreshed us so that we can hang around each and every corner of the Hill. We reached the top and worshipped the God Bhaleshwor firstly. After that, we took a view of Kathmandu valley which was really mesmerizing. We were really lured by natural beauty of the valley. After some sightseeing we had some snacks over there. We then began to pose and take a group picture with Divya sister’s DSLR. We even went to the tower for better views of the valley. Along with that we also enjoyed at children’s playground.

Although we didn’t want to come from there sooner, but due to time factors and all, we planned to return from there. We could spend only around 2 hours at the top. As everyone was very tired and also due to time limitation, we planned to return by cable car. The queue was so long for the cable car that we had to wait more than 45 minutes for our turn to come. After we reached the bottom, it was already 5.30 PM and we took our lunch only then. And after that we returned from there.

In a Nutshell, the hike was really very interesting and we really enjoyed the trip. It was approx. 4.5 hours and we really got that thrill we had expected. It was my first hike from Deerwalk but it will be one of the most memorable trip ever. Hope this type of opportunities comes again and again.

Thankyou everyone!

Hike to Chandragiri starts from the Deerwalk premises at 8 AM under the coordination of Mr. Mahesh Malla, picking up remaining hikers on the way. We all are excited about the hike. We first sat and had some breakfast at Tribhuwan Park near Thankot where we also distributed foods among the hikers. We took some pictures and discussed among who was going to lead the hike. Then we started our hike officially around at 10 AM and as our plan Krishna Raj DahalDai and DeepakGurung Dai were to lead the hike.

At first we walked through the good highway, just behind the Tribhuwan Park. Then around a walk of 30 minute ahead we entered towards the jungle where our actual hike begins and all hikers were excited to walk through such natural beauty. We continuously walk around 2 hours. Then we all decided to stop near the tea shop which was on the way to our destination. We sat on tea shop for half an hour, had tea from that shop and other remaining foods that we had carried with us. Then again we start to walk towards our destination.

Slowly our hike becomes tougher and tougher as we all had to climb a mountain and had narrow stony way to reach the destination.

Slowly our hike becomes tougher and tougher as we all had to climb a mountain and had narrow stony way to reach the destination. Though path was narrow, stony and had up hill to climb, facing all the difficulties together, we all decided to move forward obviously take some rest, with good music on the way. After continuous walk, we again sat near one shop (From where we can easily see the cable car moving) where there was two ways: one way leads to the Chitlang while other leads towards our destination. We all had some food over there and take some rest then again started to walk thinking that way is to short now and we will be on our destination in an around 45 minutes of time as we easily see the destination from the place where we sat for the foods. But our prediction was wrong as so closer it was the more walk we had to made in uphill way. Finally, we reached to the destination around time of 4 PM, though some of our hikers were still to come.

So we decided to sit for a while, we really enjoy the climate of there. Cold breeze was moving around, within a minute we feel like fresh and full of energy overloaded again on each every one of us. We stand and view the mountains for a while, it was just unforgettable to see snow mountains near the eyes and cold wind blowing every moment of time. If you want satisfaction/forget tension then stand at the level of mountains full of snow, there you lost and enjoy yourself and we all experience the same. By then all of our hikers were arrived at destination then we all roam around. We all planned to return through cable car so we had enough time to roam around the Chandragiri hills. We see view tower, Bhaleswor Temple and kids play zone. We took lots of pictures and finally decided to return back. We bought one-way ticket of cable car and stand on the queue to ride.

By 5.30 PM we all climb down of cable car and gather near the shop where we decided to have some snacks before returning to the Deerwalk Premises. We all shared our experience to each other while having snacks. Some crack jokes while some were enjoying the hike and jokes. Thank you, everyone for everything to make the hike adventurous and memorable. It won’t be so much fun without support and coordination of all hikers.

Üstelik verilen bu görevi hava, trafik ve buna benzer diğer olumsuz şartlardan etkilenmeden yerine getirirler. Yani iş hayatı başta olmak üzere hayatın hemen her alanında önemli görevleri üstlenebilir ve başarıyla yerine getirebilirler. Özellikle büyük şehirlerdeki trafik kaosu ve adres konusundaki karmaşa göze alınırsa, kurye hizmetlerinden faydalanmanın bazı durumlarda zorunlu hale geleceği anlaşılabilir. Örneğin İstanbul’un bir noktasından diğer bir noktasına acil şekilde önemli bir evrak ulaştırmak gerektiğinde ya da hastanızın ihtiyacı olan ilacı acil ve güvenli bir şekilde ulaştırmak gerektiğinde, İstanbul moto kurye hizmetimizden faydalanarak sorununuza çözüm üretebilirsiniz.
