Amazing view of the sun rise

It was great hiking up the hill for the sun rise view. Its worth it! There are many spots for looking at the great Himalayan mountains on the west and the sun rise in the east.

Had the opportunity to hike up there and do some paragliding. You'll get stunning views of the Anapurna and Fishtail on a clear day!

The place is about 30-40 mins from the Pokara lakeside area, so you'll have to leave your hotel/hostel around 5am to catch the sunrise at Sarangkot. I went on a day when it was pretty hazy, so my views of the city and mountains were good, but not great. As others have also noted, it gets a bit crowded up... More

This place is around one hour journey by bus from main Pokhra Town.We reached before sunrise.Luckily weather was clear and we could see mountains before sunrise also.Sunrise is fantastic.First rays of sun on mountains give a spectacular view,never seen earlier.

Be prepared to trek up this mountain with a flashlight in order to have a breathtaking experience of the the sun rising on one side and the Himalayan peaks on the other. There are good views from different points of the mountain however if you can make it all the way to the top (and pay a small fee) then... More
