Dhampus-Sarangkot is a relatively easy trek in the periphery of Pokhara. It will take us to two villages - Dhampus and Sarangkot - in the northwest of Pokhara valley. Because of the moderate nature of the trek, it is also suitable for elderly and young ones.

Dhampus and Sarangkot provide a wonderful view of the mountains in the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range. These villages are mainly settled by the Gurung people. The Gurungs are keen agriculturalists. They rear animals and grow rice, millet, buckwheat, rye etc. Their fields are also full of fruits. They have a unique culture and lifestyle preserved in its exotic form for centuries. The main profession of the Gurung people, outside of agriculture, is joining the armed forces. They are world renowned fighters.

However, whenever a guest enters their villages, they are very welcoming and friendly. It is the tradition of Nepalis to honor guests as gods. The Gurungs are known for their hospitality. Their food and drink are unique for a visitor’s taste buds. In the evening, they will provide us a glimpse into their age old culture through music and dance.

The view of the Phewa lake and the Pokhara valley is stunning from Dhampus and Sarangkot. Equally mesmerizing is the sunrise and sunset view.
