Trip Overview

If you are looking for one day of rejuvenating escape to nature, a one-day Jamacho yoga hike in Nepal will be the best choice. If you have one day free between your Nepal visit routine you can join us for this amazing exploration of body, mind, and soul.

Jamacho Gumba is a religious shrine, especially for the Buddhist community. It is located within the perimeter of Nagarjun National Park on Nagarjun Hills; also known as Vindya Mountain. The Gumba is located at 2100 meters altitude from sea level. Gumba sits exactly on top of Nagarjun Hills and it is north of Kathmandu city. We will drive from our residence to Phulbari Gate which is near Balaju Bypass. The area is protected by the Nepalese military based at Phulbari Gate, they will provide us with a permit to visit the Gumba. Phulbari Gate is the starting point of our hike. If you are unable to hike, you can take a ride to the top as well.

It will take approximately 2-3 hours of walking to reach the top but it all depends on your pace too. Descent from the top will be easier and shorter than ascending.  The distance of one way hiking trail is approximately 5 KM and the up and down will be 10 km. It’s an easy to moderate hike option only 4 KM away from the tourist Hub: Thamel. Including yoga practice at the top, the total duration of the Jamacho Yoga Hike hike will be approximately 7-8 hours.

The 360 views of the valley and forest, magnificent Himalaya ranges, green-carpeted mountains around, and cool air blowing through you will be the reward for you at the top. After scanning the beautiful view around we will unfold our yoga mats to practice Yoga. We will descend a few kilometers down to have our packed lunch. If you don’t want to include Yoga in the hike we can customize the plan.
