Jagat means 'toll station'. This was once the site of a tax collection post
for the Tibetan salt trade through the Marshyangdi valley. This is where it
got its name from. Jagat sits in between forests of Chilaune (Schima
wallichii), Chestnut (Castanopsis indica) and Pink Siris (Albizzia
julibrissin) and has decent lodges. Some 20 minutes away down by the river are
some hot springs. Again, nothing fancy here, just nice people and good lodges.
