This is a pleasant trek through the serene Himalayan foothills with exciting panoramas of the surrounding peaks. The journey is for people with less holiday time and still looking for a unique adventure off the beaten path. The Siklis Trek takes an enjoyable pace through scenic villages with lush fields and inspiring views of the mountains. The journey is an introduction to trekking in the Annapurna Region and especially known for its wide range of bird species. Although theroute is easily accessed from Pokhara, this area seldom gets visitors, which will mean more of a chance to interact with the local community.
We will explore the diverse terrain with terraced fields and lush scenery. The highlight and namesake of the trek is the rural village of Siklis, one of the largest Gurung settlements in Nepal. The journey in this area offers a window into traditional culture and lifestyles of the hills. Mountain views along the way include the Annapurnas, the Dhaulagiri and Lamjung ranges and Machhapuchhre, or Fishtail peak among many other highlights.
The Siklis Trek is a camping trek,and we will have porters to carry supplies, a dining tent, sleeping tent and more for your comfort. The Himalaya Hikes chef will prepare delicious meals and the camp will be a cozy place to reminisce about of the day’s highlights over food and drink, under the heavenly stars.
There are many choices for more trekking in the Annapurna area, and if you would like to extend your travels, just let us know and we will arrange according to your schedule!
We have fixed departures and custom treks that can be arranged any day to suit your needs and schedule. Himalaya Hikes looks forward to guiding you into the spectacular Siklis Region and some of the most breathtaking beauty of Nepal!
