    Best Season for Nagarjun Jamacho Forest Safari

    Spring and autumn are the best season for Jamacho to visit. During this season, the temperature is fine, the sky is clear and you can see a wide variety of flowers blooming such as the national flower of Nepal, the Rhododendron, the magnolia, and other wildflowers in the park. Also, you will have clear and wide views of the Himalayan ranges.

    Summer is another best time for the visit. During this season you will see the clear views but it brings rains sometimes. The flash floods wash away and you will have wet experiences.

    In Monsoon the trip should be avoided cause it rains almost daily in the park area. During this time you won’t explore much more as well as you will find leech in every step.
