Overview

The lowest and most distinctive glacial lake of Nepal is known as Kapuche lake. It lies in the northeastern part of the Kaski district at an elevation of 2540m from sea level. This lake is hidden jewels that recently got hyped. It is the closest and nearest destination where you can enjoy the snow. It belongs to the Annapurna Region. In the initial phase you explored Kathmandu valley(a city of the temple), the next early morning you will get on a flight to Pokhara, there are a plethora of transportation facilities to take you to Sikles. It is the historically biggest Gurung settlement so you are welcomed by Gurung culture and tradition. There you get a chance to observe the lifestyle and other vegetation of the Sikles.

The uphill trek starts from a beautiful hike from Sikles to the Hugu Goth. This route passes through scenic views of mountains (Annapurna II and Lamjung Himal), and waterfalls (Edi 64m height) along with diverse landscapes and terrain. This trek is adventurous because the route is vertically uphill and passes alongside the Modi Khola. Hugu Goth is also known to be a base camp up to Kapuche lake. It is best to spend a night here and head out to Kapuche early the next morning. Throughout the way, there are rhododendron forests, terrace fields, and sheep which makes the journey memorable as an adventure enthusiast. Then the day after you have to trek about 1.5-2hours to reach the lowest glacial lake. That day you gain an altitude of about 400m. After a pleasant stay at Sikles, a hike of about 8hours has brought you to the lake. The lake frequently has a scenic view of avalanches onto the lake.

Eventually, after exploring the lake you reversed into Sikles, then we arranged a comfort stay at Pokhara which is known as the city of lake and gateway to the Annapurna Region trekking, where you relaxed and made peace with your mind. For more details about the Annapurna Region trekking and tours, please contact us anytime.
