The Siklish Trekking - 9 Days

The Siklis trek entails a picturesque hike through colorful villages spread out in the backdrops of beautiful sceneries with fantastic landscapes. It’s a trip where you can also interact with the locals & learn of their culture. This is a trip for those who have less time but yet want to get close up to high mountain country…it’s a real good trip to do with the family…..

The Siklis trek is one of those unique picturesque treks that unfold the natural beauty of Nepal. The charming villages, intriguing patterns of terraced fields, rhododendron forest, and high alpine meadows nestled below the towering mountains of Annapurna II and IV are some of the primary features you come across as you hike the trails on this trek. The trekking route takes you to a region which is inhabited by the friendly Gurung community who are staunch in upholding their old customs and traditions. It would be worthy to stop for a while & interact with these interesting folks on your way. A final high point reveals the magnificent views of the fish – tail peak of Machhapuchare.
