NORTH POLE TREKKING PVT. LTD. . This trek is an ideal way to explore the area around Pokhara for those short on time or relatively new to trekking, without missing out on the amazing views over the surrounding mountains or the experience of village life! Your trek starts in style with a gentle boat trip across Lake Phewa to take you to the start point, where a short climb will be rewarded with stunning views out across the Annapurnas, Machhapuchhare (Fishtail), Dhaulagiri and Manaslu, which will form the backdrop to much of the trek. The trail will take you up to the World Peace Pagoda, through the forest where you can see the flora and fauna of Nepal and past a number of villages where you can experience the daily lives of the local people. It takes you up to an elevation of 2500m on the summit of Panchase hill, from which (if you are willing to get up early enough!) you can see a stunning sunrise over the snowy Himalayan peaks.

Doing treks in Himalayas of Nepal is the distinct culture and environment. Trekkers need to consider on following do’s and don’ts.
- Do smile and greet the local people with saying “Namaste” and “Tashidelek” to show respect.
- Do walk in a group or keep a distance that you could see your front and behind fellow.
- Do consult with your trekking guide before trying anything new during the trek.
- Do ask question to the guide for the next day trekking necessity, so that you could pack in your small backpack because rest baggage will carry by porter and will get only in the evening.
- Do give donation to the monastery in the trekking area where they don’t collect tickets from the visitors but there is a donation box.
- Do inform your trekking guide if you are not comfortable with your health while approaching higher altitude.
- Don’t under estimate the local culture and belief even if you find uncomfortable with it.
- Don’t take a picture of the people without their permission during the trek because some individual don’t like that.
Note regarding itineraries.
- Don’t be strange if local people stare at you because they are surprise to see you, not with a bad intention.
- Don’t expect too many facilities in the trekking areas, most places provide you only the basic facilities.
- Don’t harm wild animals, birds and plants during the trek and take a global responsibility to save the environment.
- Don’t give money to the children and the beggars; it encourages them to beg from the visitors.
