Panchase, being one of the non-touristic areas, offers you a variety of spectacular experiences. These include Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain views, ethnic villages, culture and the lifestyles of people from the western part of Nepal. Furthermore, this trek is always done with a guided group and tented. Panchase is the highest hill of this region and lies on the south-west side of Pokhara, bordering Kaski on the east, Parbat on the west and Syangja on the south. It is also a religious site, that is why on many occasions Hindu pilgrimages visit Panchase. The area around Panchase is also well known for its array of birds and wildlife.
Bordering Kaski on the east, Parbat on the west and Syangja on the south, Panchase is considered as the highest hill of this region. Popularly known as Pancha Dham, the hill has also gained its popularity as a religious site. Hindu Pilgrimages visit Panchase in many occasions to worship god. To preserve its cultural richness and promote tourism, Panchase Development Committee has been formed recently. The rare vegetation like medicinal plants, lush green forests and wildlife deserve mention worthy. The top of Panchase offers a panoramic view of Himalayas and green valleys and terraces of midhill Nepal. It is comfortable and interesting to go to Panchase. The unique village settlement of the area is another attraction for the visitors.
The Panchase Poon Hill trek can be kept in moderate category. To adjust ourselves to the high altitudes, you will take rest and acclimatize from time to time, to prevent you from facing any difficulties. Anyone with a reasonable level of physical fitness can walk this trek. Nevertheless, it is recommended to train your walking skills before you start this trek: this will help you in walking several hours a day.
