Panch Pokhari Trekking
The Jugal Himal Region is a remote area north of the Kathmandu Valley. The Jugal Himal Mountain Range form the border between Nepal and Tibet. The main peaks in this mountain range are Dorje Lakpa and Jugal Himal, which tower over 20,000 feet.The trail takes us through the Indrawati Valley gradually up to the Five Holy Lakes known as Panch Pokhari and then down through the remote Balephi Valley. We reach a maximum altitude of 14,000 feet at the Panch Pokhari.
The Jugal Himal Trek is an old trade route between Nepal and Tibet, and we will encounter villagers from the Tamang caste among others. This journey will provide us valuable insight into the ancient and primitive culture of this remote region of Nepal, where it may seem as if we stepped back in time for hundreds of years.
