This small village, perked on top of a hill just 5 kilometers from pokhara's Lakeside seems to be making something of a comeback, after falling from tourist favor about fifteen years ago.In those days the started of trekking in the anapurna regions usually started at Bindabasini Mandir ,North of pokhara,and took the treakker thought Sarangkot and along the ridge to Nayapul. The completion of the pokhara-Baglung road Changed all that!This year the only good news in adimal tourist season has been the explosion in number of people trying their hand at paragliding and the place from where to lunch oneself into the air is sarangkot. Lodges and restaurant are reporting a better business. But you might also want to come here for wonderful mountain views ,quite enjoyable walking along the ridge top or simly to escape the heat of pokhara. At1592 meters above sea level, Sarangkot is a good five degrees cooler than pokhara.
