Camping at Sarangkot, Pokhara, Nepal

11th May 2010

The camping at Sarangkot, Pokhara was a great one! The view was breathtaking and took away my backpain, from the grueling 6 hours ride, almost instantly.

From up here, I could see the city of Pokhara and its lake on the north-western outskirts of the city.

For your information, Sarangkot is located on a mountainside ridge at an altitude of 1600m with panoramic Himalayan views.

Lucky for me, I  got to meet German traveler couple, Barbara and Uwe, who camped besides me.

They have traveled the world including Malaysia in that pick-up truck. They are still traveling and have a website called Starseite.

Locals – they were watching me watching them

If you are ever in Nepal…Sarangkot is a must-see place. View more of my pictures and you will know why. Enjoy!
