2022 Feb 18, 16:10, Kathmandu

Chandragiri Hills, established as a tourist destination 12 km away from Kathmandu, faced the direct impact of COVID lockdown.

 Abhishek Bikram Shah, general manager of Chandragiri Hills, talking to NepalNews said that the business is slowly returning to normal after the Omicron scare.

Shah talked about how he feared that the new variant was going to leave a big mark in the business as it was just recovering from the last lockdowns. But now he believes that the numbers of tourists will increase as the turnout of people grew a few weeks ago when it had snowed.

Chandragiri Hills has recently made additional arrangements to attract more tourists. They have recently installed two new ziplines of 200 meters and 100 meters, one of the highest ziplines in Nepal and are planning to add big swings within the week. Necessary preparations are also going on to add bungee jump as well.

With the five star hotel in Chandragiri Hills, they hope to make it not only as a tourist destination but also a got to place for weddings and seminars. The hotel has 100 rooms and 4 conference halls.

Chandragiri is known for its view as one can see mountains including Everest, Manaslu, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. Indian yoga guru Ramdev in Chandragiri had also visited the place for his yoga performance and had praised its natural beauty. It was recently awarded as the best resort in India.

Till now the place has created job opportunities for more than 60 per cent of the local people.
