For travelers who don't have time and wanting an authentic Himalayan trekking experience with panoramic mountain views, the Panchase trek is perfect. It starts close to the popular town of Pokhara, takes just four days, and can be done in autumn, winter, or spring.
We begin with a 30 minute boat ride across Phewa Lake and then a 45 minute climb through the forest to the Peace pagoda (1080m). It is nice to stop and have a rest with excellent mountain views, views of Pokhara valley and the lake. We walk for one hour, gentle climbing, to Lukanswara and Pumdi village. Then we climb for 45 minutes to the traditional Gurung village of Bhumdi (1500m), which is our final destination. We stay with the local people in a traditional Gurung house and enjoy traditional food. Amazing views of Ganesh Himal, Himalchuli, Manaslu, Annapurna range and Fishtail Mountain from Bhumdi.
Today our walk takes us through the uninhabited forest with both climbing and gentle walking. We can see Rhododendron trees, Himalayan sandalwood and many species of birds. We can stop in a nice meadow enjoying packed lunch. Our destination is Panchase Bhanjang at 2030m, which is a settlement of only 5 Gurung households. We stay in a basic lodge, which is one of the households. All the way through forest with packed lunch.
2 hours steep climbing reaches us in our destination Panchase top. Where we can enjoy the sunrise and sun set and can view Annapurna range, Hiunchuli, Dhaulagiri, Lamjung, Manaslu and Machhapucharre.
