The mountain views captured from Sarangkot and Australian Camp consist of the Mt. Annapurna ranges, Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Fishtail, Mt. Himchuli, and other mountains. The route trek then descends downhill towards Dhampus Phedi and takes moderate uphill towards Sarangkot. Besides the vast Himalayan range, the view of Pokhara City is eye-catching and beautiful.

After a seven-hour drive from Kathmandu, we arrive in the beautiful lake city Pokhara, the gateway of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri trekking. Pokhara is a mixture of different ethnic groups and cultural people. Another beautiful part of Pokhara is Phewa Lake which offers a fantastic view of Annapurna, Machhapuchhre, and Dhaulagiri ranges reflecting into the Fewa lake water.
Drive a Taxi from Pokhara to Dhampus Phedi for about half an hour, then trek uphill to Dhampus village for another two hours. Dhampus is the unique Gurung village that lies in the lap of the green hill and in front of Mt. Fishtail and Annapurna south. Then gradually ascend to Australian Camp through the pleasant Rhododendron flour forest. It takes around an hour more to walk up to the camp.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner
Australian Camp to Sarangkot lies on top of the Hill and is not in the remote parts of Nepal, but it has universal traits to enjoy. The downhill, along with the Brahmin and Chhetri community until Sarangkot, gives you alternative thinking towards this tribe rather than a world-famous Mongolian tribe of Nepal, and once you trek uphill to Sarangkot, the enthralling view of Fewa Lake and lakeside Pokhara would resemble that of romantic painting canvas of a painter. Try to catch some sunset memories once in your life and enjoy your time with some drinks.
