Sarangkot Hiking Brief Insight

Sarangkot is one of the most visited tourist destinations around the Pokhara Valley. The Sarangkot Hiking explores this hill west to Pokhara which is famous for panoramic views of the Annapurna range and Mt. Machhapuchhre (6997m).

The trip takes you along the serene trails through numerous villages offering views of the distant Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, and Lamjung Himal ranges with the gorgeous Pokhara Valley cheering you along the climb.
