To take a quick break from the bustling city and to walk in the wonders of nature, Jamacho Day Hike is one of the best choices which is located at 2100 meters above from the sea level. As the name suggests, it can be done in one day. Jamacho day hike is one of the popular short hikes in Nepal and is easily accessible from Kathmandu Valley it takes about a half-hour drive to reach at the spot from where the hike starts. Hiking begins from near the Balaju bypass, also known as the Phulbari gate. After getting the entry ticket at the gate, one can begin the hike. The mesmerizing landscape view, birdwatching, the view of smiley Himalayas can be experienced here.

Similarly, another interesting thing is that you could see the house of the royal family of Nepal. This house used to be their summer house but after monarchy, they have been living there. Likewise, A motorable road also leads to Jamacho Gumba but hiking path is the best choice for those nature wanderers. For the enthusiastic travelers who are very interested in bird and wildlife watching, this could be the best option in a short timeframe. The hiking path is about 5 km from the bottom to the top of the hill. It takes 3-4 hours to reach the top according to the walking pace of a person.

As a part of Shivapuri National Park (which is the youngest National park and the only National park that is in Kathmandu Valley), Nagarjun-Jamacho hiking can be a perfect hike to the nature lover. It goes through the wilderness of the woods protected by the Nepalese Army. There are also cemented steps which are developed for hiking. While walking through the woods you could hear the melodious chirping of birds as well as may encounter wildlife.

What could be better than experiencing the nature where the birds sing, trees dance and the smiley Himalayas cheer them?

 During the hike, one can feel a peaceful state of mind with a natural setting. Similarly, after reaching the top one can pay homage to Nagarjun Buddha at Jamacho Monastery. You may also see several Buddhist monks paying their homage at the top of a hill in a monastery. Nagarjun-Jamacho hiking also offers spiritual heightening as well as also known as the best place to meditate. A view tower also stands there which offers a view of Kathmandu valley at the bottom and a magnificent view of snow-capped mountains such as Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Jugal and Langtang to the North at a clear day which will really entice you to keep watching. At the top, you may click pictures, read a book, meditate, etc.
