Annapurna Panchase Trekking is one of the renowned village treks intended for the pilgrims. Here, pilgrims come to show their veneration towards their forefather’s spirit and to give their blessings to the gods of the mountains. In addition to that, most of the people visit to gain knowledge and experience about the ethnic groups in the area, as well as the precious Himalayan peaks.  Our Annapurna Panchase Trekking provides an opportunity to spend time with and learn about the Gurung community.  High snow-capped peaks, including several above 8000m, provide a picturesque background for our trek.

Annapurna Panchase Trekking is suitable for those seeking an enriching cultural experience combined with your typical jaw-dropping Himalayan views.  It is perfect for those who do not have enough time or energy for the Annapurna Circuit Trek, but would like to see what the region has to offer.  Most of the trekkers appreciate Annapurna Panchase Trekking as it is considered as a model trek. Our Annapurna Panchase Trekking package unites the cultural sites of this region starting with a drive to gorgeous city of Pokhara and its natural loveliness. Machhapuchhre is a supplementary magnet that pulls trekkers of all capabalities towards it. This trek is not specified to certain people. The important thing is you must have strong will power to trek and learn about villages nestled in the Himalayas.
