Important Note

There’s another way to reach Panch Pokhari. It is a long way. It takes about 10 days is we take that route. The trek starts by taking a drive from Kathmandu to Chautara. From Chautara you will walk to Sano Okhareni, where you will spend your night. Then the next morning you will walk uphill to Kami Kharka. Then you will reach Hile Bhanjyang (3400m). The next day you will pass Tango and reach Nasimpati, where you will spend your last night before Panch Pokhari. Then the next morning you will reach your destination, Panch Pokhari. After viewing everything you will back with the shorter route. The route will lead you to Melamchi and you will take a bus from there and return back to Kathmandu. Overall whichever route you take, you will have an equal amount of fun and an amazing experience.

This is a camping trekking designed for the camping lover in the world. It is also customized package itinerary where visitors would change the itinerary or request to the new package. The camping trekking offers a wonderful Himalayan Ariel landscape with the scenery of the village, a villager, lifestyle, culture, festivals, terraced fields, flora and fauna throughout the trip.

There, in the Panch Pokhari route rarely seen teahouse amenities all season. Thus, we have been operating the camping trekking in Panch Pokhari trail. We used to transfer all necessary tent, food, table, chair, gas, stove, and another essential thing by porter during the trek. Panch Pokhari Trekking will lead specialized leader, focused to the quality service.

Sometimes, we organized a teahouse trek in the Panch Pokhari. The month of August, there is celebrating Janai Purnima Mela (carnival). A huge number of domestic visitors visit the area. You will get local food and shelter easily there. Somewhere, you will get the chance to stay overnight in small guesthouse but not enough amenities. Teahouse trek is fewer operating in the Panch Pokhari route.

There is raining July to August, sleepy trail and leech. You should take a raincoat, plastic bag, salt in the backpack. Salt and “SANCHO” is good herbal medicine to remove Leech from your body. Temperature, cold in the night and day is hot in Panch Pokhari. Thus, keep light and dry soon clothing with one warm jacket in the backpack.

Make sure that while the trip may be canceled, the cause of the strike, bad weather, and any other issue but you do not worry we will manage all situation.
