Panchase Trekking is such a splendid variety of natural beauty as the Annapurna region. Panchase is the name of the hill, gives a Himalayan Panorama that rivals that found that at Poon hill. The easiest access to Panchase is from the village of Badauri, which can be reached on foot or vehicle from Naudanda on the Baglung highway. The Panchase trek can be extended in several ways. From Panchase hill it is possible to trek through the large Gurung village of Arthor. Here some very basic accommodation may be found. The choice then is to trek to Kusma, on the Baglung highway in one day from where a bus can be taken back to Pokhara. Alternatively, there are buses and jeeps available at Karkinetta that connect directly with Pokhara city. Another possibility is to trek from Panchase back to Pokhara via the ridge that runs through the villages of Bhumdi and Pumdi. By taking this route you are able to complete the trek at the peace Stupa above Phewa lake and then descend to the lake and reach lakeside by boat.

This trek gives excellent views of the Himalaya with Phewa lake in the foreground. We pass through many villages and you will have ample time to take photographs and interaction with the local people. They can speak and understand  English. There are many different ethnic groups along the trail, but the predominant people in this area are the Gurungs. Together with the Magar and Chetry peoples, the Gurungs are famous as soldiers in the British Army, better known as Gurkhas. Panchase danda (2250m) for the spectacular views of  Dhaulagiri, Annapurna I, II Lamjung Himal and Manaslu can be seen. As we steer away from the tourist trail for several days, you will see how the Nepalese have gone about day to day life for centuries. The Panchase trek is new destination for those who are looking for something different, less touristy and easy for walking. It is an ideal trip for those who have a short time, and like to combine cultural sites of that region. This trek is also suitable for honeymoon couples and nature lovers, who want to do short tour / trekking in Nepal.
