Panchase Hill Trek

- Hike to Panchase Hill where you can have phenomenal views of the Annapurna Massif without the crowds
The Panchase Hill Trek is one of the best short circuit treks around the southern hills of the Annapurna Mountain range. The trek offers great views of the Himalayan Mountain range, wilderness experiences, insight into native ethnic groups of Nepal, and tours of a natural heritage site. The Panchase Hill Trek is ideal for families with children and elderly people, nature enthusiasts, and for people of all experience levels.
The trek begins in Pokhara with a boat trip across Lake Phewa. On the other side of the lake, the trail takes trekkers to the World Peace Pagoda. The trail then travels through Bhumdi, Panchase, and Bhanjyang villages and reaches a maximum altitude of just over 2,500 meters (8,200 feet) at the top of Panchase Hill. The Panchase Hill Trek offers excellent views of the Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Lamjung, and Machhapuchhre mountains. Sun rises at the Panchase viewpoint are beautiful memorable. Returning from Pahnchase Hill, the trail travels through Bhadaure, Kaskikot, and Sarankot for more vantages of the Himalayan mountain range.
