Chandragiri hill (2410 m) is located in the South West direction of the Kathmandu valley. The hill not only provides the panoramic views of the Kathmandu Valley and the lush green vegetation downwards on the other side but also offers magnificent sight of the Himalayan ranges from Annapurna to Everest. Having seen the beautiful panoramic view from the hilltop, one really feels as if they were seeing whole Nepal from this hill. Chandragiri hill has now become a popular tourist destination after the functioning of cable cars.

Chitlang, on the other hand, is an ancient Newari settlement located in Makwanpur district. Different artistic monuments, pagoda-styled roofs and unique craftsmanship around the place offer a fascinating charm. The temples with amazing wood and stone carving, artistic rest houses, stone taps, available inscription of centuries long reveal that the settlement was once a civilized settlement in ancient time. Chitlang also has a facility of village home stay where you can get insight of the rural life in Nepal. The hills of Chitlang is considered one of the best hiking/trekking destinations around Kathmandu.
