The path follows up and down on the hills with paddy fields, forest and grassland. This way is pretty tough for trekkers heading up to Ghorepani.

Panchase Bhanjyang is the highest point of this trek from where we can see the most stunning views of hills, Kusma Bazaar and Pokhara (famous as the city of lakes). During the trek, the most eye catching scene is watching birds. Sometime, you have to walk about five to seven hours during a trek.
