Official visit now and then keeps mind healthy. Sweet!

After the bill verification visit of Lower Modi Hydropower Project at Parwat near Kusma, we returned to Pokhara and stayed there on Jan 07,2011. The next day we visited Sarankot. This was fist time for me at Sarankot. Sarankot is famous among tourist for its panoramic view of pokhara and Para-Gliding.

We can view Annapurna range of Himalayas from here. A glimpse of Dhawalagiri at the southern end is also seen. See the hacked map of himals!

There is a small Shiva temple at the hill of sarankot. For tourist there are plenty of lodges and hotels to stay. A local bus also is available to reach this place.
