We leave early at 5:00 a.m. as we have to reach there on time to see the magnificent sunrise from Sarangkot. We ride along Lakeside towards the north to the last main intersection. After 2km, we reach a junction of Zero Kilometer. After a further 2km, there is a smaller side road to the left, marked as the road to Sarangkot.

This road continues its way along a ridge into Sarangkot hill, with exceptional views of the Himalayas, which seem almost close enough to reach out and touch. After 6km ride, we see a few teahouses where we can make a welcome refreshment stop. The track firmly embraces the edge of the hill overlooking Phewa Tal. We continue until we reach a Y-intersection. The intersection marks the final climb to Sarangkot. You can also turn this trip into a comfortable overnight trip by staying in a hotel of Sarangkot.

We then spend about an hour on the top of the  Sarangkot hill, enjoying the splendid sunrise. The sunrise from Sarangkot is unique from others. Moreover, the first rays of the sun falling onto to Mountains and making them glisten is quite a view. We then begin our hiking from there. We follow a trail towards the west that will lead us to Naudada. Sarangkot sunrise hike is known as the short Pokhara trek/ Sarangkot Naudada hike.

We walk along the ridge as we get a glimpse of the glorious mountains on one side and the placid Phewa Lake on the other. The serene environment and the lush vegetation will make all our stresses go away. After about 3 hours of hike, we finally reach Naudada. Naudada itself is at the height of 1590m and has a quiet village that is also inhabited by farmers. Here, we can enjoy food and drinks while looking at the paddy fields or the mountains above. After having enough rest, we continue our hike downhill. We descend through a dense forest as we continuously enjoy the magnificent scenery. Finally, we reach our last hiking destination that is Phedi. Here, we get back on our private vehicle and ride back to Pokhara. The entire trip of Sarangkot hiking can be completed by mid-afternoon.
