Chobar Gorge

Wednesday, October 3, 2007

According to legend, when the valley was a lake and Swayambhu an island Manjushree, the god of wisdom, struck the rock at Chobar with his sword and released the valley’s water. With the water thousands of snakes are supposed to have been swept out of the valley – leaving behind the snake king Karkotak who still lives close to the gorge in a pond called Taudaha. The Chobar Gorge is conveniently visited en route to Dakshinkali and the beautiful temple of Pharping can also be included on the trip.

Close to the spectacular gorge is the first cement factory in the valley which has been closed now. These days the most attractive part of the Chobar has been the beautiful hill that has been crowded by couples passing their secret time there. You will also find a lot of groups of people coming for a picnic as well as the place is so close to the valley and has a spectacular view of green hills around. I myself have been there with my friends in some Saturday evenings where we enjoyed the trip and some dry foods with some drinks as well. The wind blowing through our body and the spectacular view will win anyone’s heart there.
