Trip Introduction: 5 Days Panchase Trekking

This is a panoramic trek beyond Phewa Lake in Pokhara. A purchase valley is an enclosed place, surrounded by Parbat on the west, Kaski on the east, and Syangjha on the south. Panchase is well known as the destination of Nepalese Hindu pilgrims, the good thing you’ll observe here is the youngest age group shows respect to the ancestor’s soul. So, your trek to Panchase would be one precious opportunity to explore the underlying fascinating beauties within the Annapurna region.

Panchase Trekking allows you to explore valleys touched with diverse cultures and peoples within the Annapurna Region along with greeneries of rhododendron forests and stunning mountains above the valley. From Panchase you will see the great Himalayan peaks of Machhapuchhre, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Lamjung, and Manaslu. The terrain varies from subtropical valleys of banana trees and rice paddies to high ridges covered in rhododendron forest. This supports an abundant array of bird life. Along the way, you will see many ethnic mixes, such as Brahmin, Magar, and Gurung. This trek is off the beaten path and it is unlikely that you will meet many other trekkers here, and this trek is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. Panchase Trek is a short yet splendid trek around Pokhara and Panchase valley.

The valley is mostly admired for the panoramic views that can be tasted from the captivating places explored in this Annapurna Region Trek. This Annapurna Region Trek in the Panchase valley first takes you to the southwest and then to the north, where Annapurna Conservation Area exists. Panchase trekking is also an equal opportunity to observe the wildlife in the Annapurna Region. Also, the high mountains like Annapurna, Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), and Himchuli living peacefully in the Annapurna Region appear so natural and distinct from Panchase valley. The well-recognized habitats here are Gurungs, the time-honored members of the Gorkha army. Hence, we can take in the experience of unique Gorkhali dance and Gurung cultures in the same society. Adding flavors to our journey, Trek to Panchase lets you capture the religious bonding within the people here.

On this trek, you will undoubtedly experience the stunning and mesmerizing natural beauty that lies within Nepal.
