Panchase trek


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. This trek is an ideal way to explore the area around Pokhara for those short on time or relatively new to trekking, without missing out on the amazing views over the surrounding mountains or the experience of village life.The uppermost point of Panchase trekking is about 2500m above sea level, & a trip comfortable on the body. The path follows up and down on the hills with paddy fields, forest and grassland.  This trekking offers you magnificent mountains 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. Your trek starts in style with a gentle boat trip across Lake Phewa to take you to the start point, where a short climb will be rewarded with stunning views out across the Annapurnas, Machhapuchhare (Fishtail), Dhaulagiri and Manaslu, which will form the backdrop to much of the trek. During the trek, the most eye catching scene is watching birds. This trek also offers opportunities for some great photography.
