PANCHASE HILL TREK

A RELAXING FAMILY TREK AT A STEADY PACE & TIME TO ENJOY NATURE.

A LESS PHYSICALLY - LESS DEMANDING LOW ALTITUDE TREK FOR THOSE SHORT ON TIME.  

The Panchase Trek is an opportunity to view two of Nepal’s well-known mountain ranges - the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Massifs. This trek across more undulating low altitude mountains offers spectacular views of several 8000m plus peaks;  Annapurna I (8091m), Machapuchare (6993m -Fishtail), Manaslu (8156m) and Dhaulagiri I (8167m) noticeable throughout the trek. Other, less towering peaks, such as Gangapurna (7455m) and Lamjung Himal (6987m) are also visible on this trek.

With time to mingle among the villagers on this trek, you will better understand their unique cultures and lifestyle of the Gurung and Brahman castes. The trek begins at Pokhara, Nepal’s second-largest city and known as a hub for trekkers before they head on various treks to the Annapurna Conservation Area. The highest elevation on this trek is at the summit of Panchase Hill (2500m) with some awesome panoramic views – especially in the pure morning light with the sun rising over these Himalayan peaks. 

Key Features of Panchase Trek

  • Less strenuous and less physically demanding trek - particularly for families.
  • Eye-catching views of Manaslu, Dhaulagiri, Lamjung Himal &  Machapuchare.
  • Climb Panchase peak (2500m) for incredible views of the Annapurna ranges.
  • Observe rural Nepali culture, lifestyle & agricultural practices in rural villages.
  • Experience Pokhara – a hub of activity and tings to do such as boating & a walk to the World Peace Pagoda.
  • Understand & mingle with the Gurung and Brahman villagers and discover their unique customs. 

ITINERARY

Expand All
Sherpa Expedition & Trekking staff will be there to greet you at Tribhuvan International Airport and take you to your hotel, followed by a briefing covering information, do’s and don’ts of your trek and a welcoming dinner! Your safety and comfort are paramount.
Our journey begins with a 6-7 hour drive toward the Pokhara Valley and its beautiful Phewa Tal (lake) and then checking in to your hotel close to Phewa Tal. There is plenty to see and do along Lakeside with its many shops, bars and restaurants to choose from.
Shanti Stupa, also known as the World Peace Pagoda sits on Anadu hill overlooking Pokhara’s Phew Tal (lake) and is a magnificent and prominent icon overlooking Pokhara. We will then drive to Thado Khola (river) passing another well-known tourist attraction - David's Fall (or Devi’s Fall). After reaching Thado Khola we begin our trek to Pumdi Bhumdi walking through a forest with its unique flora and fauna. The trek initially ascends to a ridge and then descends to Pumdi Bhumdi where there are amazing views of Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Himalchuli, and the Annapurna Massif. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
Our day begins with a short climb through a forest with endemic flora and fauna and occasional clearings offering snow-capped mountain views. The forest is alive with birdlife and sometimes troops of monkeys. The trail continues and passes the small village of Thulunchour before connecting with a dirt road from where you have unrestricted panoramic views of the Annapurnas, Lamjung, Gangapurna, and Machapuchare (Fishtail) and three towering peaks over 800 meters: Dhaulagiri, Annapurna I and Manaslu off in the distance. The trail then heads to Panchase Bhanjyang a village with a mix of Gurung and Brahman villagers.
An early start gets us on the trail (climbing up 500 stone steps) in time to enjoy the sunrise and morning light to capture the mountain views at Panchase Peak. This is the highest peak on our trek. We will make the most of our time at the peak and have breakfast and relax while taking in the exquisite beauty. We will then descend to Bhadaure where we will stay for the night..
Today we have a gentle downhill walk following a dirt road passing through several villages until we reach Naudanda from where we take the road back to Pokhara. [This trek can be extended by request]
Today we head back on a 6 to 7 hour drive to Kathmandu with many fond memories of Nepal and its unique culture and geography. These memories will last a lifetime!
Sherpa Expeditions & Trekking staff will transfer you to the airport for your final departure from Nepal. We hope that this epic trek will be firmly ingrained in your memory and will be enough to prompt you to consider your next trek with us!

GOOD TO KNOW

Accommodation

You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfort and better quality teahouses - having attached bathroom at lower levels- until you reach higher elevations, where the accommodation is more basic with bare necessities. 

Meals during the trek

 In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of these regions is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew and Tibetan bread. Sherpa’s’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.

Transportation

We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We use public transportation or local buses during the trek. 

Physical fitness

This can be a challenging trek where you often have to walk 5-6 hours a day. You don’t need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus! We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake. 

Remember – The better prepared – the more enjoyable your trek!
