Sarankot Naudanda Trek

Sarankot-Naudanda Trek

Beauty of Pokhara is enriched by surrounding hills which are vantage point of Himalaya peaks straddling to the north side of Pokahara valley and inhabited by people, who preserve traditional culture and warm hospitality. One of the most popular treks around Pokhara is Sarankot-Naudanda trek which offer experience of Himalayan village life and panoramic view of mountain ranges like, Machhapurchhre, Dhaulagiri and Annapurna ranges. The aerial view of Pokhara valley is very pleasant from Sarankot Naudanda Trek.

One day Sarankot- Naudanda Trek starts with early morning drive to Sarangkot hill station to catch the glimpse of adorable sunrise view. After sunrise and panoramic view from Sarangkot hill we start trekking towards southern east area by passing various forests, streams and traditional villages with portrayal of rustic life.

Day 01: Drive to Sarangkot Hill and trek to Naudada 4 hours

A professional trekking guide comes to your hotel in a hired vehicle and takes you to Sarangkot hill station. Thirty minute driving takes to you Sarankot hill, from where we enjoy beautiful sunrise, emerging above the snowcapped mountain peaks that pours the rays upon Pokhara valley. When the sun rises, the view of mountain peaks like Annapurna, Fishtail, Dhualagiri, Himchuli becomes more spectacular from the Sarankot hill. We have breakfast with enchanting view. After breakfast, we start trekking from the top of Sarankot hill towards the Tulipopkhari, a place name after beautiful pond. After Tulipopkhari we descend down to historical place Kaskitot by passing beautiful hamlets of Brahmin, Chhetri and other ethnic community, temples and beautiful farming terraces in hill. Kaskikot is a historical place which was palace for Shah Kings, before unification of Nepal. There is temple of Goddesses Durga, ruins of ancient palace and statue of various Hindu deities. Kaskikot provides incredible view of Fewa Lake and Pokhara valley. After Kaskikot we walk downhill trail inside forest and cross small stream with paddy fields in its both banks. Now we follow trail that goes curved on the southwestern ridge just above Fewa Lake. The 360 degree view of Fewa lake, the shadow of snowcapped peaks on the pristine water of Fewa Lake and sweeping view of Pokhara valley simply makes us thrilled and we cannot stop on the way for various time to soak in beauty of Pokhara. Again we walk into a lush forest until we reach to Chapakot then go downhill to Kabre Homestay. We eat lunch in local restaurant at Kabre and interact with local people. Now the trails goes downhill through the villages Deurali, Kubhide Bhanjyang, Besare, Khahare and Lamachaur until we reach to end point of today's trekking Naundana. On the way we enjoy view World Peace Stupa. Theses villages are typical example of ways of life of hilly people of Nepal and the unity and harmony among the different ethnic group of Nepal. From Naundana we conclude the 7-8 hours trekking and drive back to hotel in Pokhara.
