Tour Details

Sabha Pokhari, a  natural pond of cultural and religious value, is located at 4,200 meters above sea level. The pond is about 200 meters long and 100 meters wide.

According to Hindu mythology, during Dwapar Yug, (one of four eras mentioned in Hindu religion), “Byas Rishi”  (Sage) called for a meeting of 8800 sages in the middle of the pond and gave a great speech about wisdom and morality to them.

After that, the name Sabha Pokhari was assigned to this holy pond  (Sabha meaning meeting and Pokhari meaning Pond). The sage’s mythical speech and teaching are said to have been delivered from a spot that is still marked in the pond.

The importance of the pond:

People believe that those who have a  bath in this pond will have their wishes  fulfilled. The newly married couples go there to have a  holy bath and pray to god to grant them a baby.  The holy place is crowded with visitors from Nag Panchami to Janai Purnima. (August 1 to August 15) every year.

 Along with the pond’s religious significance, Sabha Pokhari is a wonderful trekking destination as well.  The trekking route starts from   Khandbari and ends at Khandbari.   In order to go there we will travel by jeep to Barabise. And stay there.  After staying one night at Barabise,  the next day we trek – Phakuwa- Selele – Dharma Dwar  – Sabha Pohari.

This place also offers a great panoramic view of Mt. Makalu on the North and Mt. Kanchenjunga on the eastern part. One can also reach there  from Tehrathum by trekking through Chauki, Gufa Pokhari, and Milke Dand
