Great day tour to Chandragiri

I chose this company after reading many good reviews on their site and TripAdvisor site. The tour-guide was really amazing person, friendly enough to make me feel a tour with a friend. Chandragiri Hills was beautiful, I could enjoy great Himalayas views from up there.

Chandragiri Tour

My friend Tekraj suggested me to visit Chandragiri Hills while in Kathmandu. So I headed to the hill with one of the guides from Third Rock. It was raining that day but the guide made it interesting by sharing his daily lifestyle in Kathmandu and his tamang culture. He also made me try local momo and chiya (tea). After the weather was clear, we took the cable car to the hill, visited a temple there and got back to my hotel. It was a great day.
