Our Panch Pokhari Trek starts with a scenic drive to Chautara situated at Sindhupalchowk district. At Chautara, we will spend our first night where you can witness new indigenous faces and get to know about their lifestyle and culture. Moving ahead, we traverse through several Sherpa and Tamang communities. Along the trekking trail, trekkers will be rewarded with dramatic landscapes, cascading waterfalls, alpine forest, divine shrines and many more wonders of the Himalaya. Panch Pokhari Trekking provides an excellent chance to encounter floras and faunas namely juniper, pine, rhododendron and Wild Boar and Blue Sheep if you’re lucky.

After reaching Nasimpati, we will find ourselves in an absolutely diverse surrounding. We will pass through the trails ample with rocks and have to climb up stairs until we reach ‘Lauri Bina Pass’. After the pass, we will reach our final destination, Panch Pokhari. At first, we will see the first three lakes and the remaining two in a distance. We will explore the lakes and stay overnight in this surreal surrounding.
