Sarangkot Danda is one of the most admired destinations for those who arrive in Pokhara. It is one of Pokhara’s most popular hill stations and the best viewpoint near Pokhara.  Sarangkot is an eminent 360-degree viewpoint for the world’s highest peaks such as Mt. Dhaulagiri(8167m), Mt. Annapurna (8091m), Mt. Manaslu(8163m), and more than 20 other mountains over 6000 meters high.  The amazing view of Phewa Lake and Pokhara City is extremely beautiful. Besides the scenic landscape and mountains, you will also experience peaceful local village life and stunning sunrise and sun setting from Sarangkot.  

There are many ways to get to Sarangkot like care, cable car, motorbike, and biking. We recommend you start your hiking from Phewa Lake along the road to Seti Bagar and start climbing through the forested trail up to Sarangkot.  The path is quite good but Very few travelers follow this trail. It will take about 3 hours of climbing to Sarangkot. Check in at the hotel and explore the village at noon time. Wake up very early in the morning for mesmerizing Sunrise view from the upper viewpoint and hike to Australian camp via easy ridge trail through lush forest to Naudanda and kande .

Take the only necessary things into your trekking bag and deposit the rest in the hotel that you get back after the trekking. Your comfortable luxury trekking will be assisted by our professional tour guide and strong porters.

We do not drive from Pokhara just starting our trekking along the Phewa Lake bank to the Annapurna Cable car base camp. We must walk along the road to the Cable car base Camp then the trekking trail starts upwards through the den forest to the ridge. Your walking trail is steep uphill with several staircases but it is so interesting because of the beautiful views of the landscape. In many places, there are Chautaras (Traditional rest places) where you can take a rest and enjoy drinking water. The view of the Phewa Lake and several local activities make hiking very exciting. Walking below in the forest feels much more adventurous while cable cars are railing.

You will arrive at the magically beautiful place of Sarangkot after a couple of hours of climbing. Which is known as the 360-degree viewpoint. Check in to your hotel and explore the viewpoint tower and surroundings. There are so many nice Cafes restaurants and garden parks at Cable car stations as well as mini viewpoints along the ridges. Evening at the comfortable lodges with delicious meals.

Visit the view tower very early in the morning for Sunrise. The view from the tower is spread 360 degrees from Mt. Dhaulagiri - Mt. Annapurnas to Mt. Manaslu and wide panoramic valleys. The Sarangkot to Australian camp walking trail is one of the most romantic and amazing. We recommend you to walk through the forest or ridge side jungle path. The path goes through the den bushes forest of rhododendrons, bamboo, and other Himalayan alpine plants. It is a very meditative trail, a few people follow this trail. In ancient times most people used to follow this path but abandoned it after the road approached. Since, some years back local Government developed a very comfortable walking trail, that goes via every ridge. The trail offers unique scenes of the Himalayas and harmonious landscapes, amazing flora and fauna. You never meet vehicles except hearing them far away from your path. In some parts, you come to see some temples and shrines. You must carry enough drinking water and energy bars because you never meet any shops until you reach Naudanda. Avoid the road and take the ancient walking trail from Naudanda until you reach to Kande. There is a very nice walking trail that passes through the middle of the village. Approximately 5 minutes should walk on the road then the whole time there is a comfortable and interesting ancient easy walking trail. After Kande, the trail slowly climbs for one hour through the forest to the Australian camp. Hiking from Kande to the Australian camp is the last for the day.

Australian camp

Locally they called it Bhaisikharka which means Buffalo pasturelands. Before tourism local people used to bring their cattle here for pasture during the Monsoon season because it is the perfect and wide place with a lot of forests. While Nepal became slowly popular for Mountaineering, a source of anthropology and flora and fauna research, the birthplace of Buddha and scenic landscapes with cultural traditions. At the same time, Australian travelers first visited this beautiful scenic place which is not so far from the civilizations neither riskier nor adventure but mysteriously beautiful. This trek provides the most things for what the travelers are looking to see and experience.

Australian Camp

Almost 40 years ago by now, the Australians made the routine place for their holidays once a year in this place. By then there were not any tea houses, the whole field was pastures and barren. Around mid-September, villagers moved away their cattle by the same time the autumn season began, and then it used to be camping for Australian travelers. The place became the Hub of Australians for mini trekking, hiking, and Christmas and New Year celebrations. So then the Bhaisikharka got a new nickname with Australian Camp.

Wake up very early in the morning and go to the viewpoint. It offers mind-blowing views of Mt. Annapurna I, Mt. Annapurna South, Mt. Hiunchuli, Mt. Gangapurna, Mt. Machhapuchhre, Mt. Annapurna II, III, Mt. Lamjung, Mt. Manaslu and a wide picturesque views of beautiful landscape with Pokhara valley. The amazing green forest covering hillocks and scattered villages with terraced field views make your attendance a glorious opportunity of a lifetime in this heavenly beautiful place.


Return to the lodge and enjoy your breakfast with panoramic views. After breakfast start your hiking up to the Pothana village that goes through the enjoyable forest trail. Pothana is a beautiful little Gurung Hamlet in middle of forest with amazing views.  Every trekkers who are willing to make longer trip have to enter their permits at Pothana because  Annapurna Conservations starts from here. After a while explorations, descend through the beautiful forest along the staircase meditational path to Dhampush village. This village is known as the Queen of Gurung ethnic group with a harmonious culture and traditions. Check-in the hotel, take a rest for a while and explore around the villages, and see the local lifestyle. Nowadays, vehicle roads are widely spread in this village, which has brought facilities and also tremendously destroyed ancient traditions and paths. However, the people of this village are trying to preserve their ancient culture, traditions, and way of lifestyle. We are sure the overnight at Dhampush is the most rewarding or meditation night in this comfortable hiking trip.

The morning Sun shines reflection on the massive mountains, village life activities and the joy of staying at Dhampush is sure a memorable souvenir. Breakfast at the breezing garden or on the rooftop of the hotel with full joy. Aften then you can descend via staircase steps to Phedi or Jeep drive to Pokhara from Dhampus.
