Siklis Trek Camping Trekking - 12 Days

Siklis Trek Camping Trekking

Siklis Trek has been specially designed to offer you the opportunity of exploring the famous Annapurna Region’s dramatic mountain views on a route that is not frequented by hordes of tourists. It is also a low-altitude trek that is suitable for anyone who is reasonably fit.

The village of Siklis lies in an eastern corner of the Annapurna Conservation Area and is home to the Gurung community; originally herders from western Tibet and now involved in agriculture; growing rice, corn and millet on irrigated terraces. The wealth of these prosperous and friendly people is partially a result of the employment of many of their men in the Gurkha regiments in India. Gurungs have their own language and are very musical. Although essentially Buddhist, some are now Hindu – but often observe all festivals.

Our Annapurna Siklis Trek route will take you through dense forests that host a wide variety of birds while the open ridges give close-up views of the Annapurna range; including such peaks as Lamjung Himal (6983m) to the east, Annapurna II (7937m), IV (7525m), the sacred peak of Machhapuchhare (6997m) and further west, Dhaulagiri (8167m).

Villages offer simple, clean accommodation and a warm welcome. Local food is tasty and freshly prepared with a variety of dishes on offer. A full day in Siklis allows for ample opportunity to explore the region and begin to get to know its friendly and hospital people.

The Siklis trekking in the Annapurna Region begins and ends in the lake city of Pokhara in central Nepal: which is reached from Kathmandu by either a 25m flight along the Himalayas or a 6-7 hrs “exhilarating” bus drive through scenic middle-hill forest and agricultural scenery. A short drive from Pokhara leads to the start of the trek.

While Spring (September, October) and Autumn (April, May) are the best trekking months, we offer this trek throughout the year. All you need is a good pair of boots, a day pack, warm clothing, sun screen and camera. Our Annapurna Siklis trek includes transport, accommodation, meals and drinking water with porters to carry your luggage.
