The Panchase trekking – 9 DAYS… into mid-Himalayan country where animals graze on lush green pastures amidst happy chirping birds & real friendly village folks who welcome you with warm smiles…life is slow, laid-back & beautiful hereabouts…its as good as it comes in this part of the world…
Panchase trek is a pretty short and easy camping trip which lies in the west of Pokhara. This is a wonderful trek in Nepal which starts and ends in the attractive ‘City of Lakes’ Pokhara. The uppermost point of Panchase trekking is about 2500m above sea level, & a trip comfortable on the body. This trekking offers you magnificent mountain views like Annapurna Himal, Dhaulagiri Himal, Manaslu Himal, Ganesh Himal, Fishtail, or Machhapuchhre, Himchuli and other peaks as you hike along the Panchase trail. The attractions are awesome on this trip. This trek provides you lovely villages and mid-hill cultural life experiences. This is a typical family trip as you can hike with your children watched over & supported with our highly experienced crews. Panchase is one of the most popular short treks available in Nepal…
The path follows up and down on the hills with paddy fields, forest and grassland. This way is pretty tough for trekkers heading up to Ghorepani. Because of this Panchase trek is a famous destination which lies in the Annapurna region but most backpackers are unaware of this. Panchase Bhanjyang is the highest point of this trek from where we can see the most stunning views of hills, Kusma Bazaar and Pokhara (famous as the city of lakes). During the trek, the most eye-catching scene is watching birds. Sometimes, you have to walk about five to seven hours during a trek. In fact, Panchase trek is a combined travel package that offers tours and trekking in a single travel menu. This trek also offers opportunities for some great photography.
Our itinerary can be tailored as per your needs. Mostly trekkers head out here in March through May and September through December. We can arrange trips at any time during the trekking season in Nepal according to your timeframe. This trip provides you memories of a lifetime…
