Panch Pokhari Trek is another popular spiritual and wilderness trek that takes you to the sacred pilgrimage site of Panch Pokhari in this isolated region. Panch Pokhari lies north to the Kathmandu Valley at an elevation of 4,100 m above sea level. Every year many Hindu and Buddhist devotee visit the place in the month of August during a Janai Purnima festival held in this region. Apart from the religious point of view Panch Pokhari region is also popular for the spectacular view of the chain of peaks called Jugal Himal that includes Dorje Lakpa (6,966m.), Madiya (6,257m.) and Phurbi Chhyachu 6,637m. This Panch Pokhari trek is a combined package of rich cultural heritage, exceptional beauty of biological diversity, towering mountain peaks,  huge glaciers and high altitude holy lakes sacred to both Buddhist and Hindu people of Nepal.

Panch Pokhari Trek starts from Chautara 1,450m which is reached within five hours long drive from Kathmandu. From Chautara our trekking trail ascends uphill through several small villages and rhododendron forests to Thulo (big) Okhareni via Sano Okhareni. The place offers the spectacular and close-up view of the towering glaciated mountains from this place our trail passes through several dense rhododendron and pine forests,inhabited with diverse wildlife to reach Kami Kharka. Here we can observe the breathtaking view of Mt. Langtang Lirung, Dorje Lakpa and some other small peaks. Passing via the Straight path from Kami Kharka to Pauwa Bas trail ascends a steep hill up to Hille Bhanjyang. The trail then passes through rocky hills and rhododendron forests to Narsim Pati and rest in a small rest house built for pilgrims. From the place, we continue ascending up a steep and rocky hill to reach Panch Pokhari 4300m. Panch Pokhari is a combination of five holy ponds hence named as Panch Pokhari which literally means five ponds in Nepali. This place also has two  Pilgrim  houses and a temple of Lord Shiva.

The top of Panch Pokhari offers an excellent view of Jugal Himal Range, Rolwaling Range, Gosainkunda, Kanchenjunga and Makalu. After exploring the vicinity of the lake we then descend from to Panch Pokhari to Dhap via Tupi Danda. Dhap is mostly comprises of Tamangs settlements. Here we get an opportunity to familiarize our self with culture and lifestyle of the locals. From Dhap the trail descend a steep downhill to reach a suspension bridge leading us to Melamchi. From Melamchi, we take a bus to Kathmandu and end our spectacular journey.

Trekking Team:

Being homeland of Himalayas, it’s obvious to have challenging routes, dangerous weather, health issues; any of these situations is enough to ruin your trip.

Best Season to Trek in Nepal:

Autumn (September - November) and spring (March - May) is the best season for trekking and mountaineering in Nepal. Weather is mostly clear and temperature is moderate in these seasons which offer beautiful views without any obstruction. Spring grants you beautiful flowers, plants and rare animals. Walking is favorable during these seasons.

Summer (June - August) and winter (December - February).

Though summer has heavy monsoon rainfall, it is very much clearer to trek around Mustang, Dolpo and Nar- Phu valley since they are rain shadow areas. Everest, Langtang, Annapurna as well as Tibet trek are always better to trek in winter season.

Experience & Fitness:

Trekking can be challenging and exhausting. So you might need some fitness training and experience for some tough trial. Nepal Trekking in Everest Base Camp does not require past experience or extreme fitness even though we have more challenging routes in different region compared to that of Everest. Trekking in Himalayas always takes us to challenging altitudes and rocky routes. You could ask for proper rest time and acclimatization to sustain your strength. Mountains can never be achieved in a day. We always provide the detail in our itinerary. However certain training like running, skipping and other workouts will definitely be beneficial in such challenging routes.

Acclimatization:

Altitude sickness is a major risk when trekking. You might experience it on any trails above 2,500 m however; good health, proper care and drinking plenty of water will definitely help you to prevent from altitude sickness. Every trekkers needs to be familiar with the heights and altitude so, for this we have life saving appropriate acclimatization days during the trek, We also provide certain medical support for your relief and emergency rescue through helicopter whenever the situation gets worse.

Eco Friendly:

Our only goal in the Himalayas is to leave the memories and foot prints; Himalayan Magic Treks is concerned on environment pollution issue and global warming. We are always serious and genuine about our garbage during the trek especially during camping. We collect the rubbish and dump it to the proper place to protect our environment and also appeal our clients to do the same. We partake in every program conducted in KEEP (Kathmandu Environmental Education Project) and other environmental conservation programs. We want to promote Safe environment act and stand against pollution & global warming.

Tailor-Made Itinerary:

Sometimes trekking in the Himalayan region passes through unexpected complication like natural calamity, health challenges and many other problems that might result to the changes of the itinerary. So, we kindly request you to cooperate with your guide and the team in such situation.
