The mystic and magical view of the age old Himalayas can be best viewed from Sarangkot. Located at an altitude of 1592 meters above sea level, this place is mostly visited to view the sun rising above the horizon. It is approximately 11 kilometers away from Pokhara. Sarangkot has well-maintained hotels and restaurants, offering excellent food, clean rooms with hot and cold showers and even Wi-Fi connection. You can check in into hotels or local homes and stay as their guests. If you want to be blessed to see the sun rising high up in the mountains then you have to be an early bird and start around 5 am. It is about a 5 km walk uphill so by the time you walk some distance you will definitely be able to see the sun rise. You can enjoy the view of some of the exotic snow peaked mountains and start walking down towards the city crossing the dense and green forest. This is basically a 2 day’s trip. This trek is ideal for beginners as the trail is not so difficult and it is very close to Pokhara.
