Today, we begin our journey to PanchPokhari. We travel in our private vehicle, about 5 hours, to the village of Chautara, the starting point of trekking. While small, Chautara is the headquarter of the Sindupalchok district and we will stay overnight here. From our campsite, you can relax and enjoy the stunning mountain views, or if you like to explore, you can gain some insight into the culture and daily life of the village.

Accommodation: Overnight in available local lodge.

Day 2Chautara to Sano Okhreni (1965 m)

After breakfast, we start our journey to Okhreni. We start by hiking gradually uphill to reach Sano Okhareni. It takes about 5 hours of hiking. Our path passes through small villages where we can see how the diverse ethnic groups live side by side. We camp at Sano Okhareni near a pine forest with great views of the mountains.

Accommodation: Overnight in available local lodge.

Day 3Sano Okhreni to Kami Kharka (2810 m)

After breakfast, we start our trekking slowly with about 1 hour of gradual uphill walking to ThuloOkhareni. From ThuloOkhreni, we get into the steeper climb with about 4 hours of walking through dense rhododendron and pine forest. If we are lucky and observant, we might spot some wild animals such as mountain deer or langur monkeys and Nepali birdlife like the Kalij, Danphe, etc.

Accommodation: Overnight in available local lodge.

Day 4Kami Kharka to Pauwa Bas (3000 m)

Today’s trekking is nice and gentle since most of the walking will be on the flat land giving you the chance to enjoy forest trails and if luck shines some wildlife spotting. We have about 5 to 6 hours through the lush forest of rhododendron, oak, pine, and juniper and we can see some nomad’s houses for cattle on the way. In Pauwa Bas there is a shelter for pilgrims to PanchPokhari.

Accommodation: Overnight in available local lodge.

Day 5Pauwa Bas to Hille Bhanjyang (3400 m)

This morning, through the steep uphill route, we continually ascend for about 3 hours, but at a gradual pace.

Today we have an easy walk of about 4 hours. In the beginning, we have a steep uphill so we make a slow ascend taking about an hour. After enjoying the surrounding green panoramas and hilly slopes, we start the gradual descent of about 3 hours through rocky hills and rhododendron forest into camp at NarsimPati. There is a small rest house for pilgrims on their way to the holy site of PanchPokhari and we have great mountain views from our campsite.

Today is a huge day for the trip. We have about 3 hours of gradual ascent through rocky hills to reach our destination of Panch Pokhari.
