The views from the guesthouse are excellent. The top of Sarangkot is a short 5 min walk up several steps, so its easy to catch the spectacular sunrise. Ram, the owner, was very helpful at arranging activities like paragliding or trekking. He personally accompanied me on a three day trek to Poon Hill. The Wifi worked, and was fast enough for me to make skype calls to the states, even when the power was off. To top it off, his wife makes great food. Loved the Momos! This guesthouse is a great choice if you want to enjoy the views, cooler air, and chill out 800 meters above Pokara.

Room Tip: There is an excellent room on the roof, but book ahead if you want it...

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.

What we were impressed the most is the hospitality of the family who run this hotel! They are very service-minded and try to give us the best comfort as they can during our stay. The place is very near the Sarangkot view point where you can walk up to see the Fishtail mountain anytime you want! Also, the view from the hotel is splendid as well since you can see the snow mountain also. Restaurant and breakfast are good and we agree that the housewife there is a very good cooker!
Recommend this place to everyone who are thinking to visit Sarangkot :)

Room Tip: Top floor room should be the best

I traveled to many places in Nepal and this was by far my favorite place I stayed with
the most friendly family who are very helpful,

Spectacular sunrises and sunsets,
Great organic local food,
Cool rooftop area with seating and tables,
Amazing views of the mountains and the lake,
Peaceful hill side location,
Fastest WiFi in the area,
Hot showers from the effective solar water heater,
Right next to the stairs up to the view point,
Variety of clean rooms with en-suite,

I originally came to stay for a few nights but ended up staying for over a month
because of the beautiful scenery, excellent food and all the great people I met.
I will definitely visit again on my next trip to Nepal.

It was only a short walk from the lodge to the main view point, but you can just look out the window for an awesome view!

The accommodation is basic western style (flush toilet, warm shower).

The restaurant had great food (If you didn't mind the wait).

The staff were friendly and eager to please, I would definately recommend this place.
