Panch Pokhari is one of the main features of Langtang National Park, located in the Nuwakot, Rasuwa and Sindhulpalchok districts of the central Himalayan region and is situated at an elevation of about 4100m above sea level. This is a famous Hindu pilgrimage site in Nepal and lays to the north of the Kathmandu valley; the chain of peaks called Jugal Himal that includes Dorje Lakpa (6,966m / 22,854 ft) Madiya (6,257m / 20,528 ft) and Phurbi Chhyachu (6,637 m). This is a remote and unfrequented region, despite being close to Kathmandu.
Panch Pokhari Trek Level
The Panch Pokhari Trek is considered Demanding and a good level of fitness and trekking experience is strongly advised.
In a scale of 1 to 10, the Panch Pokhari Trek is rated 8. You will spend a number of nights sleeping at altitudes above 13,000ft (4000m) so you must be willing and able to rough it as most creature comforts are back in Kathmandu.
The safety of the support team and yours on every trek is our highest concern. All treks, strenuous, Demanding and Easy are all treated and planned as an expedition.
The term Altitude Sickness is used often but there are intact 3 types of Altitude Sickness. The most common is actually Acute Mountain Sickness – or AMS for short. AMS becomes a real threat when ascending at altitudes of 9,000ft or more (roughly 3,000 m).
AMS comes into effect usually because a trekker or climber ascends too quickly. As the air become thinner, there is less oxygen available. Your lungs need time to adjust in order to carry much needed oxygen to the different parts of your body.
All Ammonite Adventure treks over 9,000ft (3,000 m) include rest days – known as acclimatization days. Read more about altitude sickness »
