Panch Pokhari Trekking is one of the new trekking trail identified and explored by the Trekking Agencies’ Association of Nepal in 2012. Offering some of the most spectacular Himalayan landscapes, this trekking route is home to different ethnic groups like the Limbus, Sherpas, Rai, Gurung, Magars, Newars and Tamangs. Panch Pokhari is a pilgrimage destination for Hindus and Buddhists, which is why it was barred to trekkers until recently. Panch Pokhari means Five Lakes in English and these lakes are considered holy by these religions. It is the least traveled trekking areas and it perfectly suits tourists who do not like to move with the crowd in their hard-earned holidays. This trek is both adventurous and spiritual, and it also gives outsiders an insight into the culture of the local ethnicity. It gives an excellent view of mountains such as Gauri Shankar, Dorje Lakpa, Langtang, Jugal, Rolwaling, etc from the Panch Pokhari trekking.
The trek begins with a drive from Kathmandu to Chautara about 6 hrs and then after starts our trek. Even though tea house trek is not available on this route our expert cook will prefer the best and healthy food like in tea house trek.
