Panchase (3-4 days)
Panchase Trekking shows all splendid variety of natural beauty of the Annapurna region. It is a rare combination of long arrays of snow-capped peaks, crystal clear lakes, turbulent rivers with deep gorges, Tibetan monasteries, hot-springs, and picturesque villages, inhabited by simple and friendly ethnic people.
Being one of the best trekking route offering unique mountains view, this trek is less visited by western people so virgin culture & real way of living can be experienced when trekking this route.

The trek heads southwest, then loops north into the Annapurna Conservation Area through subtropical valleys and rice fields to high ridges of rhododendron forest.
The Panchase area is known for a wide variety of birds and animals. The trek takes you off the beaten track and offers a chance to explore the many cultures in the area, including Brahmin, Magar, and Gurung.
