I highly recommend sleeping in Sarangkot for a night or two rather than taking an overpriced taxi from Pokhara to watch the sunrise.
Mountain View Lodge is an excellent place to stay: warm hosts, affordable, clean rooms, wifi works, and most importantly, you're just a 7 minute walk to the Sarangkot viewpoint in the morning.
I found the whole experience very pleasant, and the amazing sunrise is really worth the trip.
