This is relatively easy camping/lodge trek, one can call it is a wonderful introduction to the Annapurna 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 wild animals. Trek takes off the beaten track and it gives the chance to explore a local cultures in the area, including Brahmin, Magar, and Gurung. Fabulous views of Annapurna range, Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), and Hiunchuli are a highlight here.
