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 and suitable for all reasonably fit trekkers.

The village of Siklis lies in an eastern corner of the Annapurna Conservation Area. It is also the 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. The forest hosts 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 also 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. Pokhara will reach from Kathmandu by either a 25m flight along the Himalayas or a 6-7 hr bus drive. An “exhilarating” bus drive provides the scenic middle-hill forest and agricultural scenery. A short drive from Pokhara leads to the start of the trek.
