Tour ID: 1627
Overview

One of the most famous Buddhist stupas is known as Nagarjuna Hill which is about 7km from Kathmandu at the height of 2128 m. The hill is called Jamacho by local language and means the cave of residence of Nagarjuna, a famous Buddhist saint who meditated here. Once a year a festival is celebrated here and the trail is full of visitors.

A road leads through Raniban (Queen forest) to this stupa. It takes about 45 minutes to reach in a motor vehicle or jeep while hiking takes about 2 hours to do the  5 km climb.

It is quite steep and one has to climb about 754 m. Nagarjuna hill is also described in the literature as Vindhya mountain. It has a view tower which provides a magnificent panoramic view of Kathmandu valley and the mountains on the northern side. The terrace of the Buddhist gompa also provides a good view of the southern, western and eastern parts of the valley.

After breakfast, we will pick you up from your hotel and drive around 30 minutes to the hiking point before continuing our 3-4 hours hike to Nagarjuna Hill. From the top of Nagarjuna hill enjoy the magnificent views including Langtang, Gaurishankar, Ganesh Himal and other Himalayan ranges.
