Overview

Panch Pokhari Trek 13 days Itinerary

The Panch Pokhari trek is one of the most popular camping treks that can be done in Nepal. On the trail, you will have the opportunity to see five beautiful lakes, each with its own unique beauty. Despite the challenges of the trek, you will be rewarded with stunning views of the Nepalese mountains at the end of it. It is even possible to see the Annapurna range from some of the higher vantage points. The Panch Pokhari trek is definitely for you if you are looking for an adventure and feel like you are ready for something new.

The Panch Pokhari trek is in the eastern part of Nepal, with a spectacular panoramic view and off-the-beaten-track trekking, offering the opportunity to experience an isolated and remote traditional farm of villages surrounded by the picturesque Himalayan scenery of Sindhupalchok district. The trekking journey along these high ridges will lead to the sacred Pokhari, which is located at 4,160 m. above sea level and holds a lot of religious significance.

During the Panch Pokhari Trek, you can observe the towering bases of the Jugal Himal range. It is a blue-colour lake that is named (Panch Pokhari), which means five ponds, as there are five clear ponds in the lake. The majority of these sites are holy pilgrimage sites for Hindus and Buddhists.

There are numerous pilgrims who visit here during the month of Janai Purnima to worship and take a bath in this Kunda. It is believed that a bath in the Panch Pokhari is going to wash the bad karma away. After having the bath in the Pokhari, the religious beliefs come into a positive thought, and pure spirit, which is why pilgrims and devotees gather here every August on the Full Moon (Janai Purnima), as part of the Lunar calendar, as part of the religious celebrations. Besides the Panch Pokhari Trek, there are trekking trails that connect the Langtang area to the Panch Pokhari Trek (Tilman pass Trek)

Alpine pastures

In the monsoon season, Panch Pokhari is one of the most beautiful places for cattle pastures as there is plenty of green grass there and it is one of the most important pastures for Yak and sheep from Chautara village and Sherpathang village. There are a couple of scenic drives to Chautara village, which is just 37 kilometres from Kathmandu and close to the border between Tibet and Nepal, which is the Tibet friendship border.

Discover the beautiful Himalaya view range with Langtang and Jugal Himal during the Panch Pokhari Trek starting from Chautara, the ridge of Lami Danda, Kami Danda, Sharpe Dhunga, and Nasimpati, a scenic adventure journey through breathtaking mountain scenery, pine forests, terraced fields, and rural villages from Hindus and Buddhist tribes.

We specialize in organizing Panch Pokhari Trek only through camping, with an expert sherpa guide, porters staff, cooks and kitchen crew. There is no tea house along the trails until Sermathang, so you can stay at a tea house if you wish, following the Sermathang through Tarchi Ghyang, Kutungsang, and Chisapani, which is known as the Helambu trek, though our itinerary ends at Melamchi bazaar and we drive back to Kathmandu

There are only a few places in Nepal that are still untouched by road, and out of tea house access; Panch Pokhari trek is an example of one such location, which still offers an eco nature camping experience, out of the crowd, with beautiful hidden valleys, alpine pastures, rhododendron forests, and Himalayan pine forests.

The weather of Panch Pokhari

The time of autumn (September to November) and spring (March to May); you can see the mountain range clearly in the surrounding blue skies with white clouds scattered throughout. The rains occur during the monsoon season (June to September), which makes it a little difficult to reach the place during that time. As a result of heavy snowfall during the winter months (December to February), the weather is a bit harsh during this time of year.

Our Nepal Wilderness Trekking team will lead this trek with the expert camping team to ensure that you have the best camping experience during your Nepal Camping Trek with all the camping gear you need and organic meals prepared by professional cooks. There is a good chance that our guides and porters will be from the same region, who know more about these trekking trails, the local people, the cultures, the history and the flora and fauna of the area.
