Weekend Hike to Sarangkot

By Tys Occhiuzzi 2 years ago
Categories Pokhara

It came as a bit of a spontaneous decision to hike up and spend the night on Sarangkot, the mountain watching over Pokhara and yet still dwarfed by the stunning Himalayan peaks beyond it. Three hours of walking took me through paddocks scattered with cows and oxen; I’d sometimes be strolling with old villagers only to depart once they reached their homes along the mountain side. Reaching the top was a triumph, and the warm shower at my accommodation, an even better feeling. Watching the sunrise the next morning was almost a spiritual experience. I stood on a deserted helipad a short walk down from the peak and all its visitors, completely alone. The sun scattered rays of colour onto the gigantic peaks before me, as I could hear the churning Seti River and small Tibetan settlement below. It was certainly a special moment of my time here I won’t be forgetting in a hurry, and would strongly recommend to anyone who has the chance!
