  • The hike from Pokhara to Sarangkot is a delightful and easy to travel excursion graded as a simple trekking schedule. Sarangkot is a hill lying at the northern side of the city. It is the most popular tourist destination flaunting a great view of the Pokhara valley itself and a panoramic sweep of Himalayan peaks such as Annapurna II (7937m), Machhapuchhre (6997m), and Lamjung(6983m). It is only 5 km from the LakeSide and the highest point at 1592m for viewing the sunrise and sunset over the snowy peaks. Nowadays, Sarangkot is the center for paragliding, also considered among the best in the world.
