Pokhara is the gateway to some of the standout trekking destinations in Nepal, including the Annapurna region. For anyone who cannot participate in long trekking trips to explore the beauty of Pokhara Sarangkot hiking is one of the best options. Sarangkot lies to the west of Pokhara. The Sarangkot Hike takes you through the lush forest to the hill station for an amazing view of Pokhara Valley and Annapurna Mountain Range.

The trip starts from Lakeside with a short drive to the trailhead for the hike. Beginning the hike through a trail enveloped by forests, you ascend along beautiful sceneries. The hike also introduces a few traditional villages as you head toward the top. Sarangkot is about 11 kilometers away from Lakeside and will take you about 2 to 3 hours of uphill hiking to reach Sarangkot. It is settled on a hill that lies north of the great Phewa Lake. The hill is popularly known for offering the most amazing view of sunrise and sunset over the beautiful reaches of different snowcapped giants like Mt. Annapurna (8091m), Mt Dhaulagiri (8167m), Mt. Machhapuchhre (6997m), and Annapurna South (7219m). Also, one gets to witness the lifestyle of locals and a spectacular 360-degree view over, the terrace of rice fields, Phewa Lake, and the beautiful Pokhara valley. It is one of the easiest, shortest, and most amazing hike trips from Pokhara. With a maximum altitude of around 1600 meters, Sarangkot Hill is a perfect hike destination for those who are short on time and are not well experienced/ aware of long trek trips (especially for children, old-aged people, and the whole family). The Sarangkot Hiking can be done throughout the year; however, spring and autumn seasons guarantee beautiful trails and pleasant views.
