A day tour to Chandragiri Hills is an amazing idea to spend your time during your travel to Kathmandu. Chandragiri hill is basically a hilltop at the outskirt of the Kathmandu valley. The hilltop is a famous place in Kathmandu for two main reasons. One is being the only cable car ride in Kathmandu and the other is the hilltop itself. We start our day trip as we'll pick you up from your hotel when you're done having your breakfast. After an hour long ride from your hotel we'll reach to the cable car station from where we'll be going up towards the hilltop. There are resorts, restaurants, and even a zip-line at the hilltop. The view of Kathmandu valley is amazing from the hilltop but that's not all it has got. Travelers can enjoy the Great Himalayan ranges of Nepal from the Chandragiri hilltop which includes Langtang range, Mount Ganesh, and even some of the mountains of Everest region. After enjoying our time at this hill station we head towards our next destination.
Our next travel destination for the day will be the infamous Swayambhunath Stupa, also known as the Monkey Temple which is listed as one of the world heritage sites in Kathmandu by UNESCO. This temple in Kathmandu lies in the heart of the city as hundreds or thousands of people visit this site every day. It indeed is a very famous place in Kathmandu. This temple is a very sacred place for worship for Buddhists all over the world. One can observe large statues of Buddha, monasteries, and gompas in this stupa. The Stupa lies on a hilltop and has a perfect vantage point from where the whole Kathmandu valley can be seen in it's beauty and grandeur. We have already seen the valley from Chandragiri hilltop but this place offers the view of the Kathmandu valley from a very different angle. Be careful to hide your snacks and drinks at the monkeys here are rated as grade-A snatchers.
We then finally travel to Kathmandu Durbar Square, our final destination of the day. This historic place in Kathmandu is another world heritage site in Kathmandu which consists of ancient palaces, temples and the Hanumandhoka Museum, name derived from the statue of Hindu god named Hanuman. This Palace in Kathmandu dates back to 3rd century during the Licchavi period however it became the capital of Kantipur city during the rule of Malla Kingdom after becoming independent. It has unique pagoda style architecture which used to be the prominent architecture of ancient Nepal. The Durbar Square also contains quadrangles, revealing courtyards and several temples. The architecture, beautiful carvings and artifacts and historic landmarks sets this place apart. We spend some time marveling this historic site in Kathmandu and head back to the hotel as our day trip comes to an end.

Symptoms of Altitude Sickness may start once you reach 1500-2000 meters and upwards. If you gain altitude rapidly without letting your body adapt to the thin oxygen at higher altitudes, you are most likely to suffer from Altitude Sickness. But if you plan for acclimatization days to your itinerary, you are good to go.
The itinerary includes acclimatization days to avoid Altitude Sickness. The sickness is common at high altitudes. Please note that sickness is a topic to be taken very seriously. Here are some few extra preventions:
- Avoid climbing rapidly, give your body some time to adjust
- Drink more water, not less than 5 liters a day
- Eat more, eat often, and eat healthily
- Listen to your body, do not ignore symptoms
- Do not skip acclimatization days
- Be prepared in case of an emergency
