The Jugal Himal Base Camp Trek is a stunning remote trekking location in Nepal's eastern region. This trek brings you to a sacred pilgrimage destination through some gorgeous rural communities in the Himalayan environment. The name "Panch Pokhari" means "five lakes" (Panch means "five" and Pokhari means "lakes"). It receives its name from the region's five glacial lakes. These lakes are nestled among lush green hills in a beautiful setting. They play a vital role in preserving the region's local biodiversity.
Panch Pokhari is a very important holy site. In this temple, followers of the two divergent faiths of Buddhism and Hinduism pay their devotion to their gods. On the auspicious day of Janai Purnima in August, a large number of worshippers flock to this temple. This trek will provide you with a breathtaking view of the high central and eastern Himalayas. You'll learn about historical customs and cultures. At the base of Jugal Himal, you will have a fantastic adventure and an unforgettable experience.
Nepal and Tibet are separated by the Jugal Himal Mountain Range. Dorje Lokpa and Jugal Himal, both towering over 20,000 feet, are the prominent peaks in this mountain range. The trail ascends gently through the Indrawati Valley to the Panch Pokhari (Five Holy Lakes) and then descends via the secluded Balephi Valley. At the Panch Pokhari, we reach a maximum altitude of 14,000 feet. We will meet villagers from the Tamang caste, among others, on the Jugal Himal Trek, which is an old trade route between Nepal and Tibet. This excursion will provide us an insight into the ancient and primitive culture of this distant part of Nepal, where we may feel as if we have stepped back in time hundreds of years.
The Langtang, Gauri Shankar, and Rolwaling Himalayan ranges are all visible from the Jugal Himal trek. After a six-hour drive from Kathmandu, we will arrive in Chautara. This expedition is not as difficult as the others, but it is still a thrilling adventure. This trek takes place in a reachable region, showcasing the village's culture and demonstrating how Nepalese people live in the countryside. From Chautara we will trek to Syaule on the same day. From Syaule, we will head towards Choyochyo Danda via Kamikharka Danda.
From there we will hike towards steep ridge to reach Hile Bhanjyang and then to Nasim Patti. Early in the morning from Nasim Patti, we will head towards Panch Pokhari which translates in English as five ponds. We will also take a rest day at Panch Pokhari and stroll there for a day. From there we will head back to Nasim Patti and head towards west to Yarsa Kharka. We will hike through oak and rhododendron forest to reach Yangrima Khola. From there to Laghang Gompa and Tarke Ghyang.
After a short trek, we will arrive in Tarke Ghyang from Laghang Gompa, which is a well-known Helambu hiking route, just a few days before the finish of your expedition. In Chisapani, we can witness a local Nepalese village with Buddhist and Hindu residents. We will walk down to Sundarijal after Chisapani and then back to Kathmandu. It will be a long journey of approximately 18 days.
