PANCHASE TREK

Panchase Trek is one of Nepal's easier treks, making it ideal for families, the elderly, or Travellers who just want to enjoy nature at an easier pace. 

The Panchase Trek is the best possible way to explore the area around Pokhara for those short on time or relatively new to trekking, without missing out on the amazing views of mountains or the experience of village life! 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.

The trekking trail will take you up to the World Peace Pagoda, through the forest where you can see the flora and fauna of Nepal and passes a number of villages where you can experience the daily lives of the local people. The trail ascends further to an elevation of 2500m on the summit of Panchase hill, from which (if you are willing to get up early enough!) you can see a stunning sunrise over the snowy Himalayan peaks.
