Siklish Trek

Siklish trekking is touted to be the short Annapurna trekking trail that leads one into the wild and rough terrain below the massif peaks Annapurna II (7,937m), Annapurna IV (7,525m) and Machhapuchre (6,993m). The village of Sikles located at the north east of Pokhara brought the idea of 'Siklish trekking" marking it a new way of traversing the lower essence of Annapurna region. The highest elevation of this trek heights up to 3,000m letting the traveler explore the peaks that crowns the picturesque villages.

As the route of this trekking is traversed less, the attractions that Siklish has to offer is surely going to be something new to the eye of trekkers. Having the trek started from Pokhara, it gradually rolls all over the spotless Oak and Rhododendron forest. Later the trail follows decorative Gurung village, Siklish. Lama-thar, Harpu-thar, Sabha-thar, Dhaprang-thar and Gari-thar are the five small villages that encircles Siklish. These village also flaunts their own significance.

Despite of being short in duration, the journey through out the trails is long enough to experience the culture, flora and fauna, religion and the people. Both the religion, Hinduism and Buddhism are followed by different people of different communities. This is a Gurung village and is very large, perhaps the second largest in Nepal. The beautiful culture of Gurung community is demonstrated in such a way that anyone visiting the village gets startled by its uniqueness.
