Day Hike to Nagarjun Hill



Extended its graceful natural area near Kathmandu,  Nagarjun Hill also known as Jamacho,  which is the major attraction for so many people even who are local because it gives you a chance to sail away from the busyness and rowdiness of Kathmandu valley. The Nagarjun/Jamacho hike is one of the best selections which is settled at 2100 meters above from the sea level. Nagarjun/Jamacho day hike is one of the favorite short hikes in Nepal and is effortlessly accessible from Kathmandu Valley. It takes about a half-hour drive to enter the spot from where the hike inaugurates near the Balaju Bypass road.



As the hiking begins from near the Balaju bypass, also known as the Phulbari gate entry is possible after getting the entry ticket at the gate. The mesmerizing scenic view, bird watching, the view of smiley Himalayas can be encountered here and we can observe the whole Kathmandu Valley and savor it.

Jamacho viewpoint satisfies the stunning panorama of the big White Mountains as Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Jugal, and Langtang massif to the north and stunning busy whole Kathmandu valley to the foot. There existed a natural gas flame in Swayambhunath which has been covered by the dome of the main Stupa then the Lamas used to meditate on this Jamacho hill gazing at the flame because they thought the natural flame was the influence of the god.

Likewise, another interesting element is that you could observe the house of the royal family of Nepal. That house used to be their summer house but after the end of the monarchy, they have been living there. Moreover, a motorable road also leads to Jamacho Gumba but the trekking path is the best alternative for those who are nature wanderers.

For the nature lover travelers who are very enthusiastic in bird and wildlife watching, this could be the most suited selection in a short time limit. The hiking trail is about 5 km from the bottom to the top of the hill. It takes about 3-4 hours to reach the top according to your walking pace. After touring the Nagarjun hill and relishing the view, the hike declines back to the place where the hike had begun.
