Dhampus Sarangkot short Trek is a short and a sweet trip in the Annapurna district. It might be a short trek however it figures out how to showcase a large number of the highlights of the locale. The trek is loaded with rich ethnic cultural towns, staggering scene of mountains, Buddhist religious communities and cleared staircases are one of the numerous things you will experience in the journey.
After a short drive from Pokhara to Fedi the trek begins with a tough stroll through a forest and after that to the town of Dhampus. Whatever remains of the day incorporates the cultural exploration of this culturally rich town and getting a charge out of the all-encompassing views of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Fishtail. The next day explorers set out on a short stroll through rich vegetation to Sarangkot. In transit trekkers can watch the stunning views of Himalayas above and the perfectly clear Fewa lake comfortable at the base of the slope.
