Dhampus Sarangkot Trek Reviews

Rated 5/5 based on 2 reviews

It was amazing trekking experience we had. We didn't go far from Pokhara but the landscapes were amazing. Especially in the morning the sunrise and mountains looked spectacular. The villages were beautiful and the peoples were so kind and friendly. Loved everything about the trek. We had been to Pokhara tour with sublime trails and we went to trekking with the same guide and he was also amazing! 

Trekking to Dhampus Sarangkot was my first trek in Nepal. It went like I thought it would. My friends had already come to Nepal before and they recommended that I should too. They also made me contact Ram and he took care of the rest. Now that I've completed this trek, I want to come back someday and complete Everest Base Camp trek too. Probably next year, lets see what happens. But, if I come, I'm surely going to go with Sublime Trails also because they already know how slow I can walk... hahha.. but yeah, thanks alot guys for the amazing trip. Keep up the good work!
