The Siklish Camping Trekking is a picturesque trek that unfolds the natural beauty of Nepal which is specially developed for more inexperienced hikers or anyone who is interested enough to explore the countryside of Nepal.  This area is really lacking behind in development. The appealing villages, fascinating patterns of terraced fields, rhododendron forests, high alpine meadows nestled below the towering mountains of Annapurna II and IV are some of the key features of Siklis camping trek. The Siklis area lies in north-east of Pokhara. Very few lodges and guest houses are available on the route. Hence, it is not difficult to understand that we set up a camp for overnight stay. The beautiful village of Siklis is on the brink of a hummock at the height of 2000m.

This is a stunning Gurung village. The slender lanes of this village are edge by the stones and mud houses. The houses are grouped in the traditional ribbon pattern. This village is surrounded by five other beautiful villages. They are Lama-thar, Sabha-thar, Harpu-thar, Dhaprang-tha and Gari-thar. These villages have their own role in the local community. Although this trek is comparatively slow, yet it offers enough time to study and observe the flora and fauna available in this region. You can see some superb views of the mountain on the route.

While Spring (September, October) and Autumn (April, May) are the best trekking months, for this Siklis camping Trek throughout the year. But the necessary sleeping or the comfortable gadget should be considered, as this camping trek in the natural setting.

Lets learn about the difficulty level of Siklis Trekking. Siklis Camping Trek is categorized as moderate level of trekking to rural Nepal. Every one with stable health and normal stamina can complete the trek but you should be mentally prepared for the tough walks on the high lands of Nepal.
