Sarangkot Australian Camp Dhampus Trek Details

Sarangkot Australian Camp Dhampus trek , Sarangkot, Australian Camp and Dhampus village has long been a favored destination outside the bustling Pokhara valley. Trekkers who dont want to make high altitude traverse, yet wish to explore the rural landscape near the metropolis can opt for this amazing trek. This trek entails 3 separate destinations that provide a differentiated view of the Annapurna massifs. Additionally, you will get to immerse yourself in the distinct rural landscape that these spaces provide.

Sarangkot is a popular hill station located in the northern reach of Pokhara valley. It scales 1600 meters in elevation. This place is particularly famous for a mesmerizing sunrise view that it provides early in the morning. Tourists flock to Sarangkot as early as 5 am in the morning to witness the surreal sun rays glimmering on the Annapurna massifs. This view point overlooks the gigantic mountains of Annapurna range including: Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Machhapuchhre, Annapurna IV and Annapurna III. This sunrise view has been regarded as one of the best sunrises in the Himalayan belt.

Australian camp has portrayed itself as a quaint and tranquil space located in the western vicinity of Pokhara valley. This area, which once used to be a popular campsite for Annapurna base camp trekkers, is now full of lodging options and restaurants. This place is lively with hills surrounding the flat space from all over upon the backdrop of Annapurna mountains. Located at an elevation of 2060 meters, you need to trek for at least 5-6 hours to reach Australian camp from Sarangkot. The journey traverses through rural hamlets which involves traditional nepali houses (vernacular designed), terraced farms, lush jungles (rhododendron and juniper), farms and others. All this while you will be witnessing the surreal beauty of Annapurna mountains and Pokhara city which resides by the pristine Phewa Lake.This specific village is popular as the starting point of Mardi Himal Trek.

Dhampus village is as popular as it gets. This typical village is located at an altitude of 1650 meters from the sea level. Further ahead from Australian camp for 1 hour and you reach Dhampus which depicts a traditional gurung settlement.  Also, adding to the beauty is its location which directly overlooks Pokhara valley and Annapurna massifs standing as backdrop. You will witness stone thatched roof, terraced farms, wide valleys and lush forests from Dhampus.

Combining these three destinations will definitely provide you with detailed insight about the rural landscape of western Nepal. The sheer beauty of the rural walk of life will leave you amazed and reward you with a wholesome experience.
