Phoksundo Lake Trek
This is a rather short and not too difficult hike. Leaving from Kathmandu, it’s a 7 day trip, but it could be longer or shorter, depending on the number of hours you choose to walk per day.
The walk goes through a varied scenery: cultivated fields and dry landscapes close to Juphal and beautiful pine forests with the wild flowing Phoksundo river besides you further up.
The Phoksundo Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. It’s deep blue and emerald colors are enchanting. In Ringmo, the village close to the lake, you can experience Bonpo culture.
There are guesthouses in Juphal, Dunai, Kageni, Chhepka, close to Sanduwa (next to the Amchi Hospital) and Ringmo, so you don’t need to camp if you don’t want to.
Walking times are of course a guideline and differ from person to person. The times mentioned, are excluding breaks.
