Trip Overview

Panchase is one of the short treks in Pokhara away from the hustle and bustle of the Annapurna trail. However, Panchase is an off-the-beaten-path trip that travels to Pokhara's agricultural and cultural areas. In other words, Panchase is the ideal trekking location for enjoying the stunning Himalayan vistas from Pokhara. Panchase is also the midpoint of the five tall hills. 
Hence, Panchase is the actual intersection of Nepal's Kaski, Parbat, and Syanja districts. Whereas on the summit there is Sidda Baba Temple, Dharamshala, Mahadev Temple, View Tower, and Buddha Statue located. Additionally, the Panchase Trail provides you with breathtaking views of the sunrise and sunset, as well as the magnificent Himalayas. In fact, there is a lake known as "Panchase tal." Hindu mythology states that it is a village of saints on a hill who practiced yoga and meditation.
