Essential Information

Trekking route

The trek starts after driving from Pokhara to Phedi. You will arrive in Dhampus the same day and spend a night there. From Dhampus, you will walk to Sarangkot the next day and return to Pokhara.


It is one of the most accessible hikes you can do in Nepal. You can walk quietly for about 4/5 hours a day for two days. The path is easy to walk with rewarding prospects. Everyone from kids to adults can quickly complete this hike.

Weather and the best time for hiking

We can do this trek at any time of the year. Since the path is easy to walk and you don't have to walk in the upper region, there is no problem. Summer and winter are also suitable for the Dhampus Sarangkot Trek. Temperatures will be moderate throughout the year. Each season offers you a different view of the landscapes of the region.


Dhampus Sarangkot is the best trekking route almost all year round. The change of seasons does not influence the roads and trails. However, the rainy season and heavy falls prevent you from enjoying the beautiful view of the mountains. The spring seasons, from March to May, and the autumn season, from September to November, are the best times to enjoy nature and the pleasant atmosphere with magnificent and crystal unobstructed mountain views. On sunny days it is best to enjoy the panoramic view of the Himalayas. These seasons are also ideal for hiking in the magnificent natural splendour. During the monsoon, the hills and mountains are only slightly hidden behind thick fog and clouds, and the same is true in winter.

Great hiking experience and enjoyment

I had a pleasant during the trip to Dhampus Sarangkot hiking. I chose the three-day Dhampus Sarangkot hike. My guide was very experienced and he knew the area very well and had many stories to tell about the history of Nepal. My guide was amiable and helpful, and we took the tour at a high pace. He gave us a lot of information, and at the end of the trip, he felt like a great friend. The food selection was incredible, and the tea house accommodation was much more than expected. Ladies, if you are someone who travels alone like me, I have never felt insecure. The people of Nepal are lovely, educated, and generous. I would book another trip with this travel agency again
