Panchase Ghandruk trek is a pretty short and easy camping trek. It lies in the west of Pokhara. This is a typical family trip as you can hike with your children watched over & supported by our highly experienced crews. The trip is comfortable because the uppermost point of Panchase trekking is only 2500 m above sea level. We can observe the lovely villages and mid-cultural life experience on the trek to panchase.
Nepal Dream Path Treks follows up and down the path on the hills with paddy fields, forest, and grassland to the Panchase Ghandruk trek. The way is pretty tough for trekkers heading up to Ghorepani. Panchase Bhanjyang is the highest point of this trek from where we can see the most stunning views of hills, Kusma Bazaar, and Pokhara (famous as the city of lakes). During the trek, the most attractive point is watching birds. In fact, Panchase Ghandruk trek is a combined travel package that offers tours and trekking in a single travel menu. This trek also offers opportunities for some great photography. This trekking offers you magnificent mountains views like Annapurna Himal, Dhaulagiri Himal, Manaslu Himal, Ganesh Himal, Fishtail, Himchuli, and other peaks along the Panchase trail.
