Panchase Trekking holiday in Pokhara valley Itinerary:
Day 01: Arrive in Kathmandu around midday and take a domestic flight to the city of lakes, Pokhara. Once we land in Pokhara, we drive straight to Bhumdi, situated at 1520 meters above sea level. Bhumdi offers spectacular views of the mountains.
Day 02: After a leisurely breakfast, we set off on a trek to Panchase Hill, situated at 2100 meters. This is an easy uphill walk through forested trails and along with beautiful villages. A six-hour hike through undulating hills brings us to Panchase to a fantastic view.
Day 03: A relatively easy day of walking today to Bhadaure. We stop at this beautiful village, which offers stunning views of the mountains. As Bhadaure is located moderately lower, at only 1530 meters above sea level, it is an easy walk to get to it.
Day 04: Australian camp is the next destination, which is about a 5-hour hike from here. The camp is one of the best locations to view the sunset. It is situated at a height of 1900 meters above sea level.
