Surangkot sunrise above Pokhara, Nepal

The mythical Surangkot sunrise with views of Pokhara and the Himalayas (specifically Annapurna 2 and Fishtail).



At 5am I got up and met with my new friends Bobby and Gohar. We went to the top of Surangkot, bought a pot of coffee and shivered there with some strangers to await the sunrise. It had been raining for several days and was still overcast so we were a bit concerned, but as the sun rose the clouds rose with it revealing the sun over Pokhara as well as the Himalayas to our left. The moon was still visible above the third view, completing the circle. It was nothing short of magic.
