Jamacho Day Hike

Jamacho Day Hike Introduction

Kathmandu valley is surrounded by beautiful hilltops that offer breathtaking views of mountain peaks and give glimpses of rural life and natural fauna and flora. Jamacho hill is one of the best hilltops, which is located at northern side of Kathmandu valley with beautiful mountain views and incredible Ariel view of Kathmandu valley.

Away from hustle and bustle of Kathmandu valley there lies very short trekking route to Jamacho Hill where one can satisfy thirst of hiking in short period of time while in Kathmandu and enjoy natural beauties especially crystal clear Himalayas like Ganesh, Langtang  and Jugal. Walking up in tranquil atmosphere, resonated with chorus of birds, smooth breeze coming from forest gives you solace and calm your mind.

Day 01: 6 Hours Hiking

After early breakfast a tourist van will come to your hotel at 7.00am and takes you towards Balaju bypass road via ring road. Within half an hour will reach to entrance gate of Shivapuri National park at the bottom of Nagarjung hill. Tour guide helps entry fee payment and we ascend up on cemented stops inside green forest of pine trees. After 1.5 hour straight walk we reach to Jamacho Rest Spot. The more we hike the more spectacular view of Kathmndu valley with foreground view of Swayambhunath in south and snowcapped mountains and villages and green hills of Nuwakot district we enjoy. After short rest with photo session we again follow rout that curves south on the top hill until we reach to Jamacho Gumba for another one and half hour via Rani Ban( Queen Forest). Different spices of birds like white backed vulture, Himalayan griffon, black vulture, dark kite, hen harrier, goshawk, sparrow hawk, sikhra, common buzzard, Asian black eagle, magpies, kalij pheasant, leafbirds, flycatcher and some appears before us and sometimes we see goral, jungle cat Felischaus, Himalayan sparrow Capricornisthar, wild boar Susscrofa, and monkeys too. Upon reaching on hilltop we see a colorful Jamacho Gumba flapping with Buddhist praying flags. We will have packet lunch there. After having lunch and rest in peaceful Gumba we enjoy the 360 degree view of Kathmandu valley, Swayambhunath and White Gumba. The panoramic view of Gnaesh Himal, Jugal Himal and Langtang makes your trek worth. Take photos, juxtaposing Himalaya peaks and Kathmandu valley. Then we will descend downhill by same step route that we took while trekking up, for two hours. Vehicle waits us at the gate and drops us to Hotel.
