Panch Pokhari Trek; very close to Kathmandu but yet remains a Wilderness trekking without a teahouse on the route is a fantastic camping trek to Panch Pokhari; the group of five high-altitude lakes is one of the main features of Langtang National Park, located in the Nuwakot, Rasuwa and Sindhulpalchok districts of the central Himalayan region.

Panch Pokhara is situated at an elevation of about 4,100 m above sea level. This is a famous Hindu pilgrimage site in Nepal. Panch Pokhari trekking lies to the north of the Kathmandu valley; the chain of peaks called Jugal Himal includes Dorje Lhakpa (6,966 m), Madiya (6,257 m) and Phurbi Chhyachu (6,637 m). This is a remote and unfrequented region, despite being close to Kathmandu. The lakes comprise one of Nepal's many high-altitude wetlands (HAW), but it is not listed as a Ramsar site.
