Trekking Destinations >Langtang> Panch Pokharri (Jugal Himal)
The Langtang Himalayas are within easy reach of Kathmandu. But they rival any alpine area on the planet for staggering natural beauty. The Langtang region remains one of Nepal's hidden treasures with far less tourist traffic than the Everest or Annapurna regions.
Jugal Himal or "chain of peaks" is situated to the northeast of Kathmandu. It includes the summits Dorje Lakpa (6966m), Madiya (6257m) and Phurbi Chhyachu (6637m) The trail follows a ridge to Bhairav Kund, a holy lake at 3500 meters. We then make a circuit around the head of the Balephi Khola Valley to Panch Pokhari ("five lakes") at 3600 meters, a seldom-visited pilgrimage site. Finally, the trek leads to Helambu region to end at Melamchi Bazaar.
This trek is a true adventure. Expect significant elevation gain on narrow trails. Most villages are without guest houses. Your guide staff will make provisions to maintain ample drinking as there is a scarcity on the upper ridge.
