    Panchase Independent Trek in Annapurna Region


    Nepal Nepal Nepal. Wow, you are so beautiful. Hey everyone, it’s me, Sam Watson. I went to Nepal last October to enjoy my holiday with Nepalese people and Nepalese natural beauty. I had heard about Panchase trek from some of my college friends. So, I also headed towards it. I was planning to go for the solo trek but trekking agency recommended to move with at least one guide, who will be there for you in case of any need or emergency. I also thought it is right so I booked the trip with a guide. We both headed for the trek. On the way, we passed lots of villages, rivers, small cascades, green forest, and all big and narrow paths. The path was more amazing than the destined place. The cultural and ancient stupa was amazing in view. I clicked a lot of photographs and videos. I interacted with lots of local people about their life, its ups and downs, and their devotion towards the place. It was a great experience of my life in this mountainous country. Highly recommended.

    Visit Nepal 2020, taking this slogan, everyone was heading towards Nepal to take advantage of heartwarming offers and discounts on packages. The year 2020 has not come, but still, everyone was visiting Nepal to observe its wonderful beauty and serenity. I was also one of them. I had already done Everest Base Camp Trek and Manaslu Base Camp trek. And now it was time for heading towards Annapurna region. I decided to go for Panchase Trek of Annapurna region in Nepal. I booked tickets, landed on Nepal, and there come staffs of Nepal Trek Adventure, who received me in the airport and transferred me to my booked hotel. Next day, Krishna came to our hotel to receive us for a trek. Then our journey began. We walked ups and downs on rough paths (some path was plain too) viewing beautiful mountains, dusty tracks, evergreen blossoming flowers, and so on. The dust and cool wind touching our body and passing away were pretty amazing. Truly, Krishna was the most obliging guide I had ever met. Thumbs up to you boy. Lastly, thank you Nepal Trek for organizing this wonderful trek for me and making my experience in Annapurna region more valuable.

    I went for the Panchase trek in Nepal. This trek made me encounter with the beautiful natural environment of the Annapurna region. During the trek, I was encountered with the beautiful Panchase village with ancient Gurung settlement along with their own cultures, tradition, and lifestyle, sparkling mountains and peaks, green forest on the hills, and so on. I was so much mesmerized by the beauty of this trek and surroundings. The hotel where we stayed was also beautifully decorated. It had almost all the facilities that we would need to be relaxed from the hectic day of trekking. Nepal Panchase trek is the blend of natural, ancient, cultural, and historical values. Our trek to Panchase was successfully organized by Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition. Therefore, thank you Nepal Trek Adventure, its staffs, and most importantly guide Krishna for this wonderful arrangement.
