We provide the facility of guides as well as food and lodging in Sarangkot Dhampus Australian camp hike. Moreover, our trip packages are created with budget-conscious travellers in mind.
We begin our trip by driving to Sarangkot early in the morning, which takes about 40 minutes. Driving early is crucial as we have to reach there before the sunrise. We will relish the sunrise and morning view of the mountains as much as we can. The top of the Sarangkot hill is at a height of 1565m. We will also have our breakfast there before starting our hike. The trek from Sarangkot hill to Australian camp is about 5-6 hours by foot. We walk on the generally straight path until we reach Kande. However, from Kande, it is an uphill trek until the Australian Camp. We hike through magnificent rural villages and dense forests. In addition, we continuously view the Himalayan Mountains as we go on.
The Australian Camp is situated at the height of 2055m. We will relax and have some food there. Also, in the evening, we will see a fantastic sunset that is quite extraordinary. We have our dinner and spend the night in a hotel. Moreover, we can also spend the night in an outdoor tent.
Alternatively, we can spend the night in the quiet village of Pothana. Pothana is just a 15-minute walk away from the Australian Camp.
We wake up to another beautiful sunrise that is simply outstanding. We have our breakfast as we enjoy the beautiful view. We’ll then hike towards the village of Dhampus which is about a 1.5-hour hike. We will be greeted with splendid scenery of villages, vegetation, and mountains along the way. The village of Dhampus itself is situated at a height of 1694m. Upon reaching Dhampus, we take a rest and relax for a while. After that, we then hike downhill for about 2 hours until we reach Phedi. From there, we get on our private bus back to Pokhara which takes about half an hour.
