Sarangkot, Pokhara

4.6
#2 of 41 in Nature in Nepal
A hotspot for paragliding, Sarangkot boasts some of the greatest views of the Annapurna Himalayan mountains. You can explore the site in many ways--by renting a bike, hiring a taxi, or going on a long hike. Try paragliding if you like excitement, but take extra care during the windy monsoon season. Despite peaceful surroundings, it can get crowded and noisy sometimes. Be sure to dress yourself properly, as it can get cold. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Sarangkot and many more Pokhara attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Pokhara day trip planner.

Where to stay in Pokhara

The country's second largest city has long been on the radar of international travelers, so you won't be disappointed with the number of places to stay in town. Most people look no further than the lakeside area, and if you're only in town for a short while, it really makes sense to stay by the water. You'll find standard larger hotels and pristine boutiques with attractive gardens and views, as well as a number of guesthouses run by families and aimed at backpackers. If you're going to be in town for a while longer, take a look at the rental properties available, either by the lake or in some of the less-frequented residential districts.
