Kathmandu Valley is surrounding by some of the giant hills and Single Tree Hill is one of the hill on the base of the Jamacho Hill. This is just few kilometers away from the Swyambhu nath stupa and Swyambhu hill. The magnificent view of the Kathmandu Valley is the primary attraction of this place. That is why there are many tourist attractions such as hotels, restaurants, and fun activities. This place is at the base of the Jamacho hill, from here you can do the Jamacho Gumba Hike as well.
I love to visit places with my family so that I travelled Single Tree Hill with my daughter and spouse. And each week I try to make a family outing for refreshing because the Kathmandu is bustling and hustling city. Also, my daughter go to school six days and she needs refresh from school and her study. I think taking kids for outdoor activities will help them to accumulate them physically and mentally.
I am living in Dallu it’s very close to Swyambhu and of course single tree too. So that we decided to walk from our place to there. As our plan we first walk to Swyambhu and burn some butter lamp at Buddha Park. After spending some in Buddha Park we hike up to our ultimate destinations. The walking trail was on the motor road and it was so muddy in some parts because of the rain.
Single tree hill was unknown for many years, to be honest, there was a single tree and just a few people visit there. Nowadays this place is because come one of the most visited places by locals. Because of the extra attraction and fun activity – The swing here is a trend to make a Tiktok video thereby. My purpose to visit there is also to get an experience of the Swing.
