This relatively easy camping trek is a wonderful introduction to the Annapurna mountain region. It starts in Pokhara, on the shores of picturesque Lake Phewa. From here we head southwest, and then loop north into the Annapurna Conservation Area. This takes us through subtropical valleys and rice fields up 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 gives us the 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, Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), and Hiunchuli are a highlight here.
