Siklish Trek (08 Days)

Siklish TrekkingOnly a small distance from the heavily trekked Annapurna region, this exhilarating trek is an ideal introduction to the local people and their exotic culture and life-style. In the balmy hills that offer unbeatable scenic allures, it's an easy and pleasant short trek to walk through the picturesque foothills. Superb mountain views of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Hiunchuli.

Currently generating more and more curiosity, this area is the least trekked but also the most remarkable. Your experience here is guaranteed to change your outlook on things.

Rough and wild, this trek cuts through less travelled country south of Annapurna II and Lamjung Himal Massif, with good mountain views and rough terrain. The local people are unaccustomed to trekkers. This trek is a spectacular short trek and traverses a variety of terrain from lowland villages and rice terraces up to 3,000m, where one finds the biggest Gurung (Gurkhas) village as well as a national flower forest of rhododendron best seen in spring.
