Trip Information:

All Nepal Adventure Tours & Treks offers short and scenic trekking in the Annapurna Himalayan area, which is known for its natural beauty. Panchase Trek is known for its stunning panoramic views stretching from Mt Manaslu Himal to Dhauligiri Himal in the west. Between the Lamjung Himalayan range and Himalchuli, Annapurna IV, Annapurna II, Mt fishtail (Machhapuchhare), Annapurna south, Annapurna one Bahara Sikhar, and Mt Dhauligiri. The Panchase trek can be started from a different location near Pokhara's Phewa Lake. Although it is a short walk, it never exceeds a height of 2517 meters. Even though it is only a four-day trek, we could extend it by two days by passing through the popular and beautiful Gurung unique village of Dhampus and Lwangghalel near Pokhara. This trek leaves no room for complaint when you trek for the view, nature, and cultural experience.

Any trekker in the area will be blown away by the magnificent panoramic view of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges over the lake and valley. Although the trekking area is relatively close to Pokhara, the lodging and other amenities are somewhat restricted. Thus, the Panchase Trek is better done with a home stay facility for trekkers who want to learn about the Gurung people and their hospitality culture, but a home stay upgraded to a tourist standard guest house is not a problem for lodging.

Panchase trek is a less touristic trail hidden in nature that is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna. This trek is suitable for nature lovers, bird watchers, and people of all ages. Because of the Siddha Baba temple, HomeKunda, Balaji temple, Buddha stupa, Panchase lake, and Sharwan Kumar samadhi, Panchase is not only rich in nature and history, but it is also known as a pilgrimage site.

Pokhara Valley and Fewa Lake in the distance. 

A breathtaking panoramic view of the Himalayan ranges from Manaslu to Dhauligiri. 

Gurung hospitality at its best. 

Buddhist and Hindu shrines are also present. 

Walking in the woods with Lake is a peaceful and relaxing experience. 

Note: If you enjoy taking long hikes in the mountains, we might be able to accommodate your order.
