Kahpuche Glacier Lake Trek is the new trekking trail in the Annapurna region of Nepal. This trek starts from Pokhara with 4 hours driving to the beautiful village Sikles. All glacier lakes in the country are situated 4,000 meters above sea level but Kahpuche glacier lake is unique in that it is idyllically located just 2,546 meters above sea level. Kahpuche Lake has been declared as the lowest altitude glacier lake of the world where the temperature falls below minus in the winter season and sometimes the surface-water modifies into the stiff icy ground. The lake with 1,200 square meters in the area is a peaceful glacial lake indeed. On the subject of the name, Kahpuche is actually a noun from the Gurung language. It refers to the plain surface made of crushed snow and ice.
Kahpuche Trek offers some extraordinary views of the snow-capped mountains, verdant hills, and Nepali village culture, among others. The trekking route goes through the villages of Armala, Thak, Aatighar Mauja and Sikles. The complexity of roads and trails is the cause why tourists don’t reach Kahpuche Lake. To those who wouldn’t mind it a little difficult to see the gorgeousness of nature and growing expansion of this lake, Mandala Holidays will help you.
