It was from these hills that King Prithivi Narayan Shah caught the first glimpse of a much more scenic and prosperous Kathmandu valley, which in fact instilled in the king’s mind an idea of annexing the valley into his kingdom.

Chandragiri Hill Day Hiking Traveler’s Review

Chandragiri Hill day Tour Amazing

April 7, 2019

We are a team of 15 people and have booked a Chandragiri Hill day tour for my senior family members with Gokyo Treks and Expedition. From the initial inquiry to the end of the trip the company was very impressive.

Ammar (Company founder – Manager) was extremely efficient and answered emails and messages in return. We were extremely fortunate to have Ammar Guni as our Tour Guide. They were both extremely kind and always wanted to ensure we were safe and happy.

The Chandragiri Hill day tour was amazing and I would definitely recommend and use this company again for a day hiking tour in Kathmandu city, their customer service is excellent.
