Sirubari is a small attractive Gurung village nearby Pokhara. The village is neat and clean, very colourful and warm while the people are friendly and enthusiastic about welcoming you into their homes. The compact farming community village of Sirubari offers homestays for visitors. For the adventurous, Nepal has been a synonym for trekking, mountaineering expeditions, jungle safaris and river rafting. For those seeking spirituality there are temples and monasteries. But the real attraction for the visitors have always been the people and culture. Sirubari provides just that – a warm welcoming encounter with the local traditions and vilage life. Foot trails through the village are all stone paved and the villagers’ love for flowers is shown in an all-year round riot of colours. Situated on the southern slopes of the ridge, the village enjoys long sunny days and an ideal base for agriculture.
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!
