Jumla is one of the most remarkable district in Karnali Zone. It is the most elevated height on the planet where rice development is possible(ranges from around 24,00 to 3,000 m. elevation). Jumli Marshi, an ancestral rice variety of Japonica with a cold resistant gene, is possibly grown in Jumla on the banks of the Tila River since 1,300 years ago. Both the Tila Valley and the Sinja Khola Valley are covered with paddy fields that cultivate the rice variety ‘Kala Marshi,’ a rare red rice that is sought after for its special taste. Jumla is also well-known for its products. It is a heaven with orchards teeming with apple varieties from July to August.
On earth, it’s another corner of heaven. The picturesque landscapes, rich wildlife and fascinating people and culture will surely amaze travelers. Its headquarters, Jumla Khalanga, is situated in a high altitude valley (2480 m). The nearby mountains create a dramatic background from the city centre. You will ascend the nearby hills to experience panoramic views of hills and mountains interlocking with each other.
The mountains of Danphe and Patmara form an instructive divider in the North. The Danphe Pass (3550 m) needs to be crossed while doing the Rara Trek. Due to the steep and tricky route, and zillions of parasites, the growing to Danphe and Patmara is quite challenging, particularly during the stormy season. Regardless, it’s an elating experience and if you get to the top, the payoff is grand view.
The Jumla Kingdom was one of the numerous realms that specked Nepal before its reunification by King Prithvi Narayan Shah of Gorkha and later by his more youthful child Bahadur Shah. The realm was established around 1404 when Baliraja, who wedded the little girl of the last leader of the Yatse (Malla) Kingdom, succeeded his dad in-law.
It was one of western Nepal’s most impressive realms, being one of the Karnali locale ‘s 22 Baise principalities that once had been a piece of the larger Yatse Kingdom. After a long period of intermittent fighting it conquered the Mustang domain in 1760. The Jumla realm successfully defended itself against King Prithivi Narayan Shah ‘s key attack in the late eighteenth century, and tradition also has it that he got harmed in battle. Afterwards, Bahadur Shah assaulted again and added Jumla for the lords of Gorkha in 1789 with the aid of the domains encompassing Jumla. The Jumla rulers were like the Gorkha Kings, like Thakuris (Sijapati, Malla, Shahi).
Things you can do while you’re in Jumla:
Jumla can be reached by plane, by bus or by jeep. An overland travel from Kathmandu to Jumla is a must for adventure-seekers, even at 30+ hours long.
Snow is making the town appear positively hypnotizing throughout the winter. Be that as it might, trekking at this period is usually not advisable. June to October, because of its surrounding climate and greenery, is the best opportunity to visit Jumla.
