    Trip Overview

    If you're looking for an adventurous trekking experience in Nepal, look no further than the Panchase Trek! This exciting journey takes you to the summit of Panchase Hill and allows you to stay at a local homestay, immersing yourself in the local culture and way of life. While there are plenty of popular trekking destinations in the area, such as Poon Hill, Royal Trek, and Annapurna Base Camp, Panchase remains a hidden gem with plenty to explore. The trek takes you through forested trails and sparsely settled villages along the Phewa Lake, offering stunning views of the surrounding mountains, including Annapurna and Dhaulagiri.

    One of the highlights of the Panchase Trek is the opportunity to interact with the local people and learn about their culture. As you stay at a local homestay, you'll have plenty of time to explore the area and get to know the community. It's no wonder that Panchase is famous for its homestay trekking experience, and if you're looking for an authentic way to experience Nepal, this trek should be at the top of your list.

    During the trek, you'll have the chance to explore a variety of attractions, including the historical Kathmandu City and the stunning Pokhara City. Pokhara is known for its beautiful lakes, mysterious caves, and rushing springs, making it the perfect place to relax and enjoy your holiday. You'll also pass through many ethnic villages, each with their own unique culture and traditions.

    The trek culminates in a challenging 6-hour uphill hike to the top of Panchase Hill, where you'll be rewarded with stunning views of the Himalayan mountain range, including Annapurna I, Lamjung Himal, Gangapurna, Machhapuchhre, and Dhaulagiri. The best time to take on the Panchase Trek is during spring (February-May) or autumn (September-December), as the route can become slippery during the monsoon season.
