“A tough and rewarding hike.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

It was fogged in by the time we got to the top but on a good day this offers amazing sunrises and great views. Its a steep and exhausting climb but worth it.

“Sarangkot reviews”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

The walk to Sarangkot takes about hour if you are a fast walker. Vut once you reach to the top the views are amazing on a clear day. I would advice people not walk to Sarangkot alone because there seems to be many boys hanging around and with the hsitory of attacks it is advisable to walk with someone. I was at one point hassled by some children when walking up the hill.

“awesome sunrise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Awesome sunrise but it was too crowded. We went to a cafe not far from the view point and had even better view of the mountains.

“Early morning viewing of Himalayas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Up at 4:30 a.m. and off to the mountain -- along with half of the people in Pokhara!! A wild ride, a bit of a walk, and here comes the sun on the mountains. A magnificent experience and view. Well worth the early hour and the wild ride.

“worth getting up for.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

When heading up for sunrise find a side of the road not covered with other tourists and enjoy it in peace and quiet . Views are great from many parts of the road without sharing the experience with 100 others.
