Waking up at 4:30 to go to the top of Sarangkot was great as we could see the Annapurna Range from there at dawn.

Having hiked up from Pokhara the day before, we were disappointed by the weather, which is beyond control! The low cloud cleared briefly to let us glimpse the river below but there was no sign of the sun or mountains. 50npr entry per person (tourist) ticket was valid from evening entry and for sunrise visit the next morning. Money is... More

Very good vantage point for seeing sun-rise and Annapurna Mountain Range. However, the climb is high and steep not suitable for Physically weak or challenged persons.

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.
