Panch Pokhari Trekking - 15 Days

Panch Pokhari Trekking

Experience 12 Days trekking to five holy lakes through untouched traditional villages in spectacular Himalayan landscapes. This trek to Panch Pokhari at the base of Jungal Himal offers pristine mountain views, rich culture and genuine adventure. This area, northeast of Kathmandu offers a combination of rich cultural heritage, unsurpassed beauty, and biological diversity. As you trek to a group of high altitude holy lakes, sacred to Buddhist and Hindu people.

Trekkers first travel by bus to Chautara and five hours northeast of Kathmandu towards the Tibetan border. We travel through a mixture of beautiful mountain scenery and the terraced fields and characteristic houses of rural villages from different ethnic groups.

Experience Life in the Village Homes

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 make this area a naturalist’s dream and a mecca for those who appreciate traditional cultures.

Trek Starts From 1,400 m And Goes Up to 4,000m

This trek starts from 1,400 m and goes up to 4,000m at Panch Pokhari. A seldom visited pilgrimage site where the Janaipurnima festival is held in August. Therefore many Hindu and Buddhist pilgrimages visit this site each year. This is a very spectacular and spiritual trek.

The top of Panch Pokhari (4100m) offers an excellent view of Jugal Himal Range, Rolwaling Range, Gosainkund, Kanchenjunga, and Makalu.

This trek is for all round year except for monsoon.
