Panchase Trek 3 days itinerary

Discover the beauty of rural Nepal and experience the magic of the Annapurna Himalayan Range on a short and easy trek near Pokhara Valley and Fewa Lake. The Panchase Trek is a delightful two-day hiking adventure, perfect for trekkers of all ages and fitness levels, allowing you to immerse yourself in the pristine natural surroundings and cultural gems of the region.

The name “Panchase” holds a profound spiritual significance as it refers to the five seats occupied by the divine mother. Rooted in ancient Asana yoga, the term signifies the feminine principle in yoga, representing five different levels of existence. Panchase is a sacred place for meditation, deeply revered by Hindus and Buddhists alike.

As you embark on this journey, be prepared to be enchanted by the lush green forests teeming with diverse flora and fauna, providing a harmonious ecosystem for wildlife to thrive. The trail will lead you through traditional Gurung and Brahman ethnic villages, where you’ll witness the vibrant cultures and warm hospitality of the mountain people.

The tapestry of Panchase extends beyond nature, encompassing its warm-hearted inhabitants. This tapestry includes Kalabang, Chitre, Bhadaure, Deurali, Talibarang, Arthare, and Sidhane villages, home to a collective population of around 70,000. These villages offer homestay accommodations, providing a gateway to the locals’ welcoming hospitality. To experience this, it’s advised to arrive before sunset and inform your hosts in advance.

Panchase’s allure lies not only in its people but also in its topographical diversity and cultural richness. The region nurtures diverse species of birds, animals, butterflies, flowers, and vegetation. Notably, it safeguards endangered herbs and herbal medicine. The verdant landscape is shared by animals like tigers, bears, deer, and an array of avian species.

The Panchase Trek offers breathtaking vistas of the snow-capped Annapurna Massif, Lamjung Himal, Machhapuchhree (fishtail), and Manaslu Himal ranges. The views from Panchase Danda at an elevation of 2500 meters are simply awe-inspiring, making it a favored destination for spiritual seekers and nature enthusiasts alike.

During your trek, you’ll also get a chance to visit the World Peace Pagoda, a magnificent Buddhist monument perched atop a hill above Fewa Lake. This spiritual haven can be reached via a serene boating and trekking trail, where tranquility and serenity abound.

Accommodations along the trail are provided in basic tea houses, adding to the authentic charm of the experience. Spend your first night at Bhumdi Guest House in Pundi Bhumdi, and your second night at Open Heart Guest House at Panchase Danda. These homestays offer a glimpse into the unique lifestyle of the local communities, setting this trek apart from others in Nepal.

If you are short on time or prefer a less strenuous option than the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek or Annapurna Sanctuary trek, the Panchase Trek is a perfect choice. It offers a fulfilling experience, allowing you to savor the beauty of the Himalayas without compromising on adventure.

As an alternative, the Royal Trek and Sikles village Kori Trek are equally rewarding and captivating experiences that you might consider exploring in the future.

Join us for the Panchase Trek, and let the mountains and charming villages of Nepal captivate your heart, leaving you with memories that will last a lifetime. Our expert guides will ensure your safety and comfort throughout the journey, picking you up from your Pokhara hotel to commence this unforgettable expedition. Embrace the spirit of adventure and the tranquility of the Himalayas as you embark on the Panchase Trek!

Pokhara to Panchase distance

It’s crucial to bear in mind that the actual trekking distance is longer due to the meandering nature of the trail and the elevation changes. Typically, the Panchase Trek spans two days, with overnight stays at Bhumdi Guest House in Pundi Bhumdi and Open Heart Guest House at Panchase Danda. Considering the inclines and descents along the way, the total trekking distance generally falls within the range of 40-45 kilometers (25-28 miles).
