Panchassee Mountain is an ancient pilgrimage climbing from the level of Fewa Lake to about 2,500m, from where excellent views of the Annapurna mountain-massif are possible. There are wonderful trekking trails in every direction to the five peaks of this holy mountain. Thickly forested, Panchassee wears a garment of very lush vegetation: tree orchids, Rhododendron blooms and colourful flowers. One of the delights that trekking around Panchassee can bring is a visit to her tiny lake nestled in a jungle, as if a jewel below the western summit. As a female symbol for the ‘waters of our being’, this lake is a basis for the Mountain’s motherhood. There are old, stone-stepped pilgrimage approaches upon which you climb past grassland greens and into vastnesses of Yoga symbols for which this Mountain is famous. Panchassee is a unique nature experience that provides inspiring vistas at every turn of the path: but be ready for serious exercise during the climb! ‘Panchassee’ means ‘five seats of the Divine Mother’: ‘Panch’ means five, ‘as’ roots from the word Asana (the yoga practise of physical postures) meaning a seat or place, and the double ‘ee’ represents the female gender. The symbol of five represents an ancient Yoga system in which there are experienced five levels of existence. Three of these levels are of our thinking, feeling and sensing, with the Above and Below completing this symbol of manifestation. Just as Everest, Annapurna or Dhaulagiri, Panchassee is a divine Mountain-mother to the local people, visible during the annual Mela celebration in November.
