TRIP HIGHLIGHTS
  • Sunrise @ Sarangkot
  • Downhill Mountain Biking

The ultimate way to start the day! Pokhara’s most popular sunrise viewpoint, followed by an easy going downhill bike ride through local villages, rewarded with the best half day whitewater rafting trip in Nepal!

Sunrise @ Sarangkot 5am +/-
It’s a 20 minute ride 900 meters above Lakeside to the mountain viewpoint at Sarangkot. Enjoy the sunrise with views of Phewa lake, the Pokhara valley and majestic Annapurna mountains.

Tea and simple breakfast is provided at Sarangkot.

Downhill Mountain Biking 7am – 10am +/-
No mountain biking experience? No problem! Our friends at The Bike Shop Nepal will guide you from Sarangkot towards the Upper Seti River. This is a gentle to moderate downhill mountain biking experience along quiet roads and wide open trails through local villages. We will ride right to the river to start our next adventure activity!

Upper Seti Rafting 9am – 12:30pm +/-
Only 30 minutes from Pokhara’s Lakeside, this short and sweet rafting adventure offers 1 ½ hours of non-stop adrenaline filled class III+/IV rapids. With fantastic Annapurna mountain views, crystal clear Himalayan whitewater and a beautiful gorge decorated with a suspension bridge and prayer flags!

A simple packed lunch will be provided before returning to Lakeside. Return drive is only 20 minutes.
