Panchase Trekking Nepal
Possibly the most attractive destination is Panchase, a high hill to the west of Pokhara. This hill gives a Himalayan Panorama views. The easiest access to Panchase is from the village of Bhadauree, which can be reached on foot or vehicle from Naudanda/Khare 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 and continues on to Karkinetta. Here some very basic accommodation may be found. Alternatively, there are buses and jeeps available at Karkinetta that connect directly with Pokhara. 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 Tal and then descend to the lake and reach lake side by boat. This route gives excellent views of the Himalaya with Phewa Lake in the foreground.
We pass through many villages and you will have time to take photographs and interaction with the local people. There are many different ethnic groups along the trail, but the most of the people in this area are the Gurungs. Together with the Magar and Chhetri peoples, the Gurungs are famous as soldiers in the British Army, better known as Gurkhas. For several days we will travel off the main tourist trail to Panchase, and on the third day we climb towards Panchase hill (2250m) for the spectacular views of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna I, II, III, IV, Lamjung Himal and Mt. Manaslu.
