About Jamacho Day Hike

The Jamacho Nagarjun hike is the nearest hike in Kathmandu valley. It is located to the North West from the tourist hub (Thamel) and takes 15 minutes to drive to the starting point of this hike. Jamacho Nagarjun hill is a part of the Shivapuri Nagarjun national park so it can be the perfect hike for the nature lover.

This short and easy Jamacho hike offers the best view of Kathmandu valley, greenery, bird watching, and the scenic snow-capped mountains to the north on a clear day. The hill Nagarjun has been described as Vindhya Mountain in the literature which is the most popular and sacred place for both Hindus and Buddhists. The hill Nagarjun has been named by the sage Nagarjuna who was meditating in a cave. Beside the Nagarjuna cave, there is another cave where the Buddhist Mahasiddha was.  Buddhist monastery, caves, nature, and the Jamacho viewpoint are the main attraction of the Nagarjun Jamacho hike.

The Jamacho viewpoint supplies the stunning view of big white mountains such as Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Jugal, and Langtang massif to the north and the beautiful Kathmandu valley to the bottom. There was a natural gas flame in Swayambhunath which has been covered by the dome of the main Stupa the Lamas used to meditate on this hill looking at the flame because they thought the natural flame was the power of the god. After visiting the Nagarjun hill and enjoying the view, the hike descends back to the place where the hike had been started.

Frolic Adventure organizes the Jamacho Nagarjun hike with an experienced nature guide and a reasonable budget.
