panchase village trek review

The best Panchase trek near Pokhara

100% 5 star based on – 234 Based on TripAdvisor Reviews

We did a 6 day trek through the Annapurna region called the panchase Trek – absolutely amazing views. Landscape changes frequently from rice fields to snow capped mountains. Our trek was led by Ram who did a fantastic job teaching us about the history of the region and mountains. He knew the area so well and always knew the best tea houses to stop at for food or lodging. I would highly recommend Ram and the Gokyo Trek team to any planning a trek in Nepal. – Rehan, San Diego, California, USA..
