Tour Overview

Nagarjun hill day hiking is a short hike that goes to the top of Nagarjun hill(2300 M) also known as a Jamacho. The walking distance from Fulbari gate to the top of the hill is 4.371 KM. This short hike is like a piece of cake so you don’t have to worry about difficulty. The journey takes 5/6 hrs leaving from Thamel until arrive back. This hike offers a birds-eye view of Kathmandu valley, Himalayan panoramic view, walk through a lush green forest, amazing flora-fauna, and Jamcho Gumba visit.

The name Nagarjun was derived from the name of Buddhist saint Nagarjuna who came inside the Nagarjun forest, meditated for several years, and got enlightened. This holy and sacred hill is located in the northwest part of the Kathmandu valley. This forest was preserved by the Nepali government and called Nagarjun forest reserve. Later the forest was combined as part of Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park. Many different animals including wild boar, cat tiger, fox, and monkey are found inside whereas the dense forest is famous for the flora. And also, many different kinds of subtropical floras including some herbal plants having great ayurvedic value can be found here.
