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 2100 meters above sea level.
Jamacho Day Hike is one of the popular short hikes in Nepal and is easily accessible from Kathmandu Valley which takes about a half-hour drive to reach the starting point of the hike. The trek begins near the Balaju Ring Road, also known as the Phulbari gate. After getting the entry ticket at the gate, one can begin the hike. Here you can experience the fascinating view of the landscape, bird watching, and the sight of the smiling Himalayas.
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 the monarchy, they have been living there. Likewise, a motorable road also leads to Jamacho Gumba but the hiking path is the best choice for those nature wanderers. For 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 depending on a person's walking pace.
As a part of Shivapuri National Park (the youngest National park and the only national park in Kathmandu Valley), Nagarjun-Jamacho hiking can be a perfect hike for the nature lover. It goes through the wilderness of the woods protected by the Nepalese Army. There are also cemented steps that 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 nature where the birds sing, the trees dance and the smiling Himalayas cheer them on?
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 on a clear day which will entice you to keep watching. At the top, you may click pictures, read a book, meditate, etc.
Himalayan Trekkers always grant different hiking options for travelers to enjoy their short leisure.
