This relatively easy trek with the wonderful view of Annapurna Himalayan range which starts from Pokhara, on the shores of picturesque Lake Phewa. The trek heads southwest, then loops north into the Annapurna Conservation Area through subtropical valleys and rice fields to high ridges of rhododendron forest. The Panchase area is known for a wide variety of birds and animals. Our trek takes us off the beaten track and offers a chance to explore the many cultures in the area, including Brahmin, Magar, and Gurung. We’ll spend a day resting in Ghaundrung, the largest Gurung village in the area. Fabulous views of Annapurna, Macchapucchare (Fishtail), and Himchuli.

Experience is not necessary at this level, anyone who is in good health and fit enough to enjoy a good weekend hill walk can manage this grade. Usually, Easy grade treks are short in duration and at lower altitudes; often they are optional, giving a chance of a rest day. However, walking always involves some exertion: trails are seldom flat, and you must still expect to have a reasonable amount of ascent and descent. You would normally walk for 4 to 5 hours during the day. The transport is by Airplanes and Jeep.
