The view of the Annapurna Himalya from Sarangkot is almost a religious experience. From here. you can see a panoramic sweep of Himalayan peaks from Dhaulagirl (8167m) in the west to the perfect pyramid that is Machhapuchhare (6997m) and the rounded peak of Annapurna (7937m) in the east. Most people come here at dawn or dusk, when the sun picks out the peaks in brilliant colours. The main village is just below the ridge. but a set of steps leads uphill to a dramatic viewpoint in the ruins of an ancient kot. There’s another ruined fort at kaskihot (1733m), a one-hour walk west of Sarangkot along the ridge road, with similarly jaw dropping views.
