The next day’s destination is Sarangkot, famous in Nepal for its sweeping view of Himalayan peaks, including Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167 meters), Machhapucchhare (6997 meters), Annapurna II (7937 meters), and Lamjung Himal (6983 meters). In and around Sarangkot, there are several sweet viewpoints. There is the viewing tower, though if it's crowded, we take a short walk to some lesser-known spots. The views at sunrise and sunset are most spectacular. The transformation of color illuminated on the mountains is almost supernatural—the kind of thing that turns non-believers into believers.

Best Time to Trek in Dhampus

Trekking is possible throughout the year, but Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) provide the best weather.  During the Spring, there is a bit more color and the rhododendrons are blooming, and in the Autumn months, the skies are generally clearer.  During the monsoon season, though, there are fewer tourists. Each season has its perks.
