Panchase trek is a short trek in Nepal that is very famous and the most accessible and easy hike just beyond the beautiful Pokhara valley, Panchase trekking is astoundingly popular among trekkers. Panchase trek, popular as a short trek near Pokhara, is located just beyond the tranquil Phewa Lake. Panchase trek offers a great opportunity to experience scenic natural beauty along with the incredible country lifestyle of the people of Nepal. Within a short frame of time, one can be familiar with several aspects of nature and culture of the lower Annapurna region near Pokhara. Those who love short hiking in the country of Nepal find the Panchase trek a perfect trekking destination.

Fundamentally, the Panchase trek is famous for stunning Mountain views like Machhapuchhre, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Lamjung Himal, and Manaslu and also one can view the beautiful valley, Pokhara, and popular lake, Phewa Lake. The hikers will be tremendously mesmerized to experience the unique variations in culture and nature. Not only Panchase is famous for Mountain View but also for subtropical vegetation in the fascinating valleys and rice paddies to high ridges covered in rhododendron.

These variations enrich to be one of the most suitable abodes for unique floras and faunas. The mixed ethnic communities and their cultures stun the travelers enormously. Many ethnic mixes, such as Brahmin, Magar, and Gurung are the major ethnicities of this region. We mostly recommend this Panchase short trekking for those who have a very short time to trek in Nepal. Almost every season in Nepal is possible to do this Panchase short trek.
