Panchase Trek Part 2

Days 3 and 4

sunny 25 °C

Personally, I had thought all the ‘up’ was behind us, but Day 3 still had a fair bit of it in store on the way from Panchase Bhanjyang to Bhumdi (1530m). The first hour or so we followed the rocky road out of Panchase Bhanjyang, before joining a more familiar and gentler walking path. Every now and then we emerged into big, open grassy areas, perfect for taking a rest and enjoying the views.

The afternoon session was a comparatively quiet walk, as we were all concentrating on making our way safely down the sharp descent. Big rocks and some quite slippery patches made me glad to have a hiking pole with me – a confidence booster if nothing else. As Bhumdi came into view I was reflecting on how the hills showed signs of much more dense habitation, and also on how sore my knees were!!

For me, I think Day 3 proved to be the most difficult – manageable, but pretty hard on the legs.

The 4th and last day was lovely, walking through rural villages in the morning, then through Rani Ban (the Queen’s Forest) in the afternoon.

Along the way there were amazing views of Pokhara and Phewa Tal. It was sad to say goodbye to our wonderful trekking crew.

Day 4 = easy.
