Manjushree Park is situated next to Chobhar Gorge in southern Kirtipur. It is named in honour of Manjushree, the enlightened being who created the Kathmandu Valley when he carved out Chobhar Gorge.
The park is a lovely natural oasis to escape the city. Just a 30-minute drive from Kathmandu, visitors can find a peaceful spot to sit in the park or walk down the stairs to watch the water rushing through Chobhar Gorge.
The more adventurous can explore Chobhar Cave, within the park grounds, on a guided tour. Get your torch and be ready to climb through some narrow spaces. It’s not for the claustrophobic!
