Panchase Village Trek
Panchase Village is a land of culture and biodiversity. This is a panoramic trek to beyond Phewa Lake in Pokhara. Panchase village 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. This trek is also a great extension to any of our tours of Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan.
The Panchase village 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! 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 trail will take you up to the World Peace Pagoda, through the forest where you can see the flora and fauna of Nepal and past a number of villages where you can experience the daily lives of the some ethnic mixes, such as Brahmin, Magar and Gurung.
It takes you up to an elevation of 2500m on the summit of Panchase hill, Where you can see a stunning sunrise over the snowy Himalayan peaks.

Best Time To VisitAutumn (Sept to Nov) and Spring (March to May) are the best seasons for the Panchase Trek. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. If you wish to avoid crowds and enjoy some alone time with nature then taking this trip during winter (Dec, Jan, Feb) could also be an another great option. However, the temperature during winter could be harsh for most guests. Trekking in the Summer or Monsoon seasons (June to Aug) will be affected by rain but the Summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist.
