About Nagarjuna Day Hike Tour

Nagarjuna Day Hike Tour is one of the easiest ways to escape the chaos in the Kathmandu Valley and enjoy the serenity of nature. Nagarjuna Hill is located in the northwest corner of Kathmandu Valley. A fun two hours of hiking through the jungle of Shivapuri National Park will take you there. 

Nagarjuna Hill is a popular pilgrimage site for Hindus and Buddhists alike. There is a Buddhist monastery named Jamacho Gompa where you can listen to the prayers and chants of Buddhist monks. You can explore the cave where Nagarjuna (a revered Buddhist philosopher) is said to have meditated. Jamacho Gompa itself is a wonderful viewpoint from where the scenic view of the Himalayan ranges can be seen. Mountain ranges like Jugal, Ganesh, Langtang, and more can be seen from here. Our Nagarjuna Day Hike Tour is best for those who want to enjoy the view of the mountains and spend some time in the tranquil environment around the valley. Our hike through Nagarjuna National Park offers you wonderful views of mountains, jungles, and the valleys down below. The trail to Jamacho Gompa hiking is also a splendid opportunity to enjoy bird watching as well. Dozens of bird species make their nests in the forest of Shivapuri National Park. At the end of the day hike, we drop you back off at your hotel.

Customer Reviews

  • One day insightful hike to Nagarjun

    - Susan Sundberg, Denmark

    Usually I always have something to say about each service. But after going to a day hike in Nagarjun with Sublime, I have nothing to complain about. The place was also beautiful, I had fun especially when we were at Jamacho temple and when we could view mountains. This was just a short hike and I had so much fun, I am so impressed by the service and support by them, I will recommend them to all my friends and to anyone traveling to Nepal
