The leisure resort at Chandragiri Hills offers spectacular views, entertainment and recreation: a viewing tower, a children’s fun park, shops and restaurants as well as other exciting attractions. These amenities make the resort a popular destination for visitors from both home and abroad. It is the main objective of Chandragiri Hills Ltd. to promote the domestic as well as international tourism business in Nepal. The recently installed 8-passenger gondola lift from Doppelmayr has made it possible for passengers to enjoy the stunning scenery of Chandragiri Hills and admire the beauty of Lord Shiva’s Bhaleshwore Mahadev Temple. The nine-minute breathtaking journey from Godam-Thankot, up through the hillside that reaches high above the city is the most comfortable way of experiencing the hidden charm of this place. On a fine day, it is possible to see the panoramic view of the Himalayas including Mount Everest from here.
The tectonically unstable region and the limited availability of materials in the local area were not the only challenges to be faced during the construction of the gondola lift. The ropeway features a vertical rise of 951 m and a particularly steep alignment. To avoid an extreme tower location in sloping terrain, Doppelmayr provided a rope span of over 870 m. The new lift went into service in August 2016.
