Panchpokhari Thangpal rural municipality, popularly known as Panchpokhari, is one of the 12 rural municipalities of Sindhupalchowk district
The rural municipality has carried out some important works using local resources. The rural municipality has taken forward the work of post-earthquake reconstruction, housing, health, education, electrification etc. The rural municipality claims that the results are starting to be seen now as education, health, drinking water, agriculture, tourism, and youth-targeted programmes have been given priority instead of roads.
Yangri and Panchpokhari tourist routes have been constructed here. Both these unpaved roads are being upgraded. The Panchpokhari ring road is being developed and upgraded rapidly.
Emphasis has been laid on quality education, said Uttam Mani Poudel, school inspector of the rural municipality. Earthquake resilient buildings have been constructed as the physical infrastructure of the school was destroyed by the earthquake of 2015.

For economic prosperity, work is being done to make the rural municipality a tourism hub and link the tourism business with the living standard of the people.
