Jamacho Day Hike as the name suggests can be completed within a day. Jamacho hike is a popular day hike in Kathmandu valley, you can enjoy a day off hiking on the lap of nature far from the busty city of Kathmandu. You can reach Jamacho by foot or by any vehicle, but it is always recommended to hike in the forest.
It will take 2 hours to reach the top of Shivapuri Nagarjuna National Park from where you will be able to view whole Kathmandu valley. There is a small Gumba at the top of the hill along with a viewing tower. On a clear day, you can view the Himalayan range in the North.
Best Time For Jamacho Day Hike
Jamacho hike can be done throughout the year. Although, it is best during the Spring and Autumn season because of the flowers that blooms during this season. It is not located at high altitude so it can be done during the Winter season too, but we have to be careful during the rainy season because of the wet stair that leads to Jumacho.
If you want a quiet time away from the busy Kathmandu valley then you should definitely consider Jamacho Gumba Hike. It is simple, shorter and more importantly presents a great view of Kathmandu valley and the Himalayan ranges.
