Trip Overview

Panch Pokhari generally means five ponds, and panch Pokhari trek refers to trek to the five holy ponds in Sindhupalchowk. Panch Pokhari Trek is made uniquely to provide magnificent vacations in Nepal. Five Lakes are known for their Hindu pilgrimage tour. Himalayan viewpoints from the northwestern and the enchanting biological diversities bring about recreate the trip brilliantly. The trek contains the foundation of the Jugal Himal range from the first and finishes in the lower portion of their Langtang area. Panch Pokhari offers the closer and stunning views of mountain range such as Langtang range, Jugal Himal, Rolwaling Himal, and many other snow-capped ranges. 

Panch Pokhari(five ponds) is a famous trekking pilgrimage shrine next to Gosaikunda during the season of Bhadra Ekadashi to Janai Purnima. Janai Purnima festival is held here every year in August when Brahmin castes come here for the ritual changing of the sacred thread (Janai) they wear around their bodies. Thus, the five ponds (Panch Pokhari) are regarded as sacred ponds. Situated as they are at the base of the Jugal Himal, the ecology is pretty diverse and of considerable interest. The trek takes you through Sherpa and Tamang villages, so it's something of a Nepal cultural trek, as well.

Picturesque beauty as seen from Laure Bhanjhyang. At Panch Pokhari, there is a temple and a couple of rest-houses for travelers but no one lives there. You may explore the beauty along the trail.
