Trip introduction

“Where ever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.”

Panch Pokhari Trek at the base of Jugal Himal offers pristine mountain views, rich culture, and genuine adventure. Trekkers first travel by bus to Chautara, five hours northeast of Kathmandu towards the Tibetan border. This trek starts from 1,450m and goes up to 4,100m at Panch Pokhari. The lake is located in a beautiful natural setting that’s why it has become a travel destination in Nepal’s tourism industry.

We travel through a mixture of beautiful mountain scenery and the terraced fields and characteristic houses of rural villages from different ethnic groups. On your first night, you will experience life in the village homes of Sherpa and Tamang people and your guide will give a short talk on trekking, altitude sickness, and the highlights of the trek. These include the holy Five Lakes, the incredible Himalayan scenery, and the lifestyle of nomadic people unchanged by time. The unusual climatic and geographical mix makes this area a naturalist’s dream and a Mecca for those who appreciate traditional cultures. The trekking trail to Panch Pokhari is a delightful walking adventure traversing through lush forests, green mountains, traditional farming lands, traditional villages, and high hills of typical Nepal that shows views of far-off mountains lost on the horizon. On your first night, you will experience life in the village homes of Sherpa and Tamang people and your guide will give a short talk on trekking, altitude sickness, and the highlights of the trek. The higher elevation regions are mostly inhabited by Tamang, Sherpa, Gurung, Rai, Limbu, Magar communities who are originally called the Himalayan people or mountain people. Moreover, lots of historical places, religious places, Caves, and naturally beautiful lakes are other important things for a noble experience. The region of Panch Pokhari is encompassed by the various Himalayas which are Langtang Himalayan Range, Jugal Himalayan Range, Mt. Dorje Lakpa, Mt. Phurbi Chyaachu, Mt. Madiya, and the other Himalayas.

This is a very spectacular and spiritual trek which is visited by many Hindu and Buddhist pilgrimages visit this region every year. And the Panch Pokhari region is globally recognized as the ninth high wetland of the globe which is still unspoiled by urbanization. For those looking for a spiritual, tranquil, and scenic trek, the Panch Pokhari Trek is the one for them.
