The short Pokhara Sarangkot Trek is a perfect trekking adventure for people who want to experience the mountains but don't want to undergo an extensively long journey. It is a marvelous short trip that presents the best features of the Annapurna region in a relatively brief amount of time. The trek by the Himalaya Land Treks lets the trekkers take in the pristine Himalayan beauty without having to go through a rough trek onto the Himalayas.
The Pokhara Sarangkot Trek starts from the lake city of Pokhara- the tourist hub of Nepal. The city is located near the Annapurna Himalayas, and thus presents trekkers with magnificent views of peaks like the Annapurna I (8091 m) and Mt. Machhapuchhre (6997 m). The city is also located beside the beautiful Phewa Lake on which you can enjoy a leisurely boat ride.
From there, the trekking journey then leads to Australian Camp from where the panoramic views of the Annapurna Peaks as well as the sprawling Pokhara city are quite dramatic. The trekking trail meanders through the region's sublime woodlands of maple, oak, and rhododendron to another famous destination- the vantage point of Sarangkot from where the entire panorama of the valley with the Himalayan tapestry decorating the skyline is quite unforgettable. Sarangkot is also famous for housing adventure sports like paragliding and zip-lining.
The Pokhara Sarangkot Trek is perfect for people who have a short amount of time to spend in Nepal. It is easy and can be done by people of all age groups. The best time to do the trek would be the spring and the autumn months for the best visibility of the mountains.
