As for the trip to Mera I’d like to say that you and your company run a first rate operation. I thought Chris was a very professional guide.

Pokhara Panorama

Pokhara Panorama is a four day trek around Pokhara that starts in Sarangkot, ascends to Panchase Peak and follows the ridge overlooking Phewa Tal to the Peace Stupa. The trek finishes with a descent to the lake for a boat ride across Phewa Tal back to Pokhara.

This trip would be a wonderful choice if you have limited time in Nepal although like to join a trek to see Himalayan views, traditional farming villages and beautiful forest. Panchase Peak and lake are important religious sites with a number of Hindu temples and Buddhist stupas. For most of this trek we follow ancient stone-stepped trails used by pilgrims for many years.

Both Sarangkot at 1,600m and Panchase Peak at 2,500m are superb viewpoints of the Himalayas. On a clear day from Panchase Peak one can see Dhaualagiri, Annapurna I, Annapurna South, Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Annapurna IV, Hiuchuli, Fishtail and Lamjung.

On second day of the trek after Bhadaure village you enter Panchase Protected Forest, this is an area known for its biological diversity and natural beauty. Among 412 species of orchid reported in Nepal, 113 have been found in Panchase area including two endemic species. There are also wild animals found including Asian Black Bear, Barking Deer, Leopard, Jungle Cat, Fox, Jackal, Wolf and Monkey. It is surprising the Panchase area is so well preserved and does not attract large numbers of trekkers considering its location so close to Pokhara.
