    Panchase Hill Trek is relatively an easy trek that takes trekkers to old stone-stepped structured stairs which gives the area a very antique look. Panchase Hill Trek lies to the west of the bustling Pokhara city which takes us to the sparse settlements of the locals in Panchase area, passing through paddy fields and grasslands. It is also considered as a pilgrimage site by many locals as it is the main source of Fewa Lake in Pokhara. Locals also visit the place to pay their respect to the dead souls and say their prayers to the mountain gods. Panchase Hill Trek is comparatively a less touristy area where most families with a very limited period of time for their vacation come to visit. The maximum altitude of the trek is 2500 m, hence the trek rewards travelers with amazing experience regardless of their age or any physical limitations. Although, the trek consists of very few activities that complete in a short span of time, the experience of witnessing the panoramic view of the Himalayan giants over 8000 m height including Annapurna, Manaslu, and Dhaulagiri, is not any less than that offered by the Ghorepani Poon Hill. 
    Panchase Hill Trek begins from the south-west side of the beautiful Pokhara city. As we make our way up the Panchase Region, the peak of Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) sneak peeks at us throughout the journey. The trail passes through diverse topographical structures that vary from place to place, taking us through cultivation lands where we can see rice paddy fields followed by dense rhododendron forests spreading serenity and beauty to the region. We head towards Bhanjyang and hike to Panchase Hill where we come across holy Hindu temples that holds a great significance in the region. Thousands of locals visit the temples in the belief that their sins are cleansed if they pray to the Hindu gods. The region consists of Brahmin, Magar, Chettri and Gurung villages who hold a great pride in their culture and tradition. We roam around the Panchase region enjoying the fascinating cultural diversity. Panchase Hill Trek is an extraordinary and ideal trek for trekkers who wish to experience the local culture and tradition along with an exceptionally beautiful landscape amongst the incredible mountain vistas in a very short time.
