Panchase Trek Overview

Panchase Trek is a 3-day trek in the Annapurna region of Nepal. It is a moderate trek with a high point of 2500m, so no prior acclimatization is required. The trek offers beautiful scenery and an authentic experience of staying with locals. This hike is a great option to do as an acclimatization hike before doing more challenging treks in the region like the Annapurna Circuit or Annapurna Base Camp.

The trek starts in the town of Kande, which is about 28 kilometers from Pokhara. From Kande, the trail winds its way through forests and villages, eventually reaching the Panchase Peaks. The Panchase Peaks offer stunning views of the Annapurna mountains, including Annapurna I, II, III, and IV.
