Sarangkot is situated on the hillside of Pokhara & is mostly famous for offering beautiful view of sunset and sunrise. Beside that we can get great view of mountains like Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri and Annapurna. Starting day off with rays of sun in the morning and welcoming the night with the birds returning to their nest is truly heartwarming.
We head to Saarangkot through the main tourist area, Pokhara. Sky paragliding and zip flyer can be done during the tour. We also tour around Sarangkot and see their culture closely. This is great day tour to explore the Himalayas and learn culture.
Around 4-5 hours of drive to Pokhara enjoying the scenery on the way. We reach the paradise city Pokhara. This city is enchanting with the altitude of 827m in the base of Mt. Fishtail. From caves, lakes and gorges to viewpoints, Pokhara city is the main hub for adventure.
From Pokhara, we hike up-to Sarangkot to witness the great Lakes and Annapurna Himalaya range with mountain giants like Mt. Fishtail, Annapurna I, Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri and many more. Sunrise and sunset is another great aspect of this hiking after you reach to the top. Our overnight stay is at Sarangkot.
