Nagarjun day hiking is one of the best hiking destinations around the Kathmandu valley. Located very near to the touristic area Thamel. Nagarjun hiking is very good for travelers who have a very short period of holiday but want to enjoy nature. Hiking to the Nargarjun offers a magnificent view of the city as well as the Langtang Himalayan range if the weather is very good. Jamacho Gumba is on the top of Nagarjun hill an elevation of 2150 Meters which is also another attraction of the Nagarjun Day Hiking. The Nagarjun Hiking route is in the middle of Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park. The National park names are from the two famous hills (Shivapuri and Nagarjun). Which is just above the Balaju and starts from fulbari gate. The nation itself is an amazing place for flora and fauna.

Jamacho Monastery also known as Jamacho Gumba viewpoint (2128m) offers the best view of Kathmandu city and the northern Himalayan range Langtang. You can have a magnificent view of the Himalayas as well as a very far distance from Kathmandu city. Passing through the dense forest which is full of oak, bamboo, Rhododendrons, pine, and some typical plants. Several wholes you can see on the way to Nagarjun Hill which is made by wild boar in search of their foods. They usually eat the insects that find inside the lands. The colorful prayer flags on the way are beautiful to see as well.

We may not see the animals while hiking to Nagarjun Hill station but this is home to several species of mammals like Himalayan black bears, leopards, jungle cats, and Rhesus monkeys. This park does not only have 177 species of birds, around 9 endangered species, and 102 species of butterflies with a number of rare and endangered species. The national park is also very important for Kathmandu citizens because of the drinking water. The locals also hike here to spend a beautiful time on the top of Nagarjun hill. The monastery is also nice to look and there is also a small view tower to look around the clock. The freshness you will feel here is just amazing. Nagarjun day hiking might be your good day hiking tour in Kathmandu.
