About Panchase Trek Nepal
Panchase Trek is one of Pokhara's short treks away from the actual Annapurna trail, but it is rural-cultural off-the-beaten-path trek that offers an ideal way for those visiting to discover the natural beauty around Pokhara without missing out on the incredible views of the Annapurna Himalayan Range and experience the life of village. Our short trek begins in style with a gentle boat trip across Lake Phewa to take you to the starting point, where a short climb will be rewarded with amazing views across the Annapurnas, Machhapuchhare (Fishtail), Dhaulagiri and Manaslu, forming the backdrop for much of the trek. The path will take you up to the World Peace Pagoda, through the forest where you can see Nepal's flora and fauna and through a number of villages where you can see the local people's daily lives. It takes you up to an elevation of 2500 m on the Panchase Hill summit, from where (if you're willing to get up early enough!) you can see a dramatic sunrise over the Himalayan Giants.
Panchase is among Pokhara's nearest short trek. Panchase is a point on the top of five tall hills where they cross. On top of Panchase; there is Sidda Baba Temple, Dharmasala Temple, Mahadev Temple, View Tower and Statues of the Buddha. Panchase is actually called the intersection of the Kaski, Parbat, and Syangja districts. Panchase Hill provides stunning views of Dhaularigi, Annapurna, Machhapuchhre, Lamjung Himal and Manaslu and some of the sunrise and sunset views. In the center is a temple of the Pancsila Lake and the Barah. It is said that saints used to live there, and because they went elsewhere when fire burned in 1966. But for yoga and meditation it is a sacred site.
