Our Siklis Trek is a perfect package for trekkers of all ages and skill levels.  Situated in the Annapurna region, we'll get amazing views of the Annapurna range with the days and days of ascending high into the alpine level.  In addition, this trek has a bit more of an authentic feel to it.  You will see very few tourists and will be interacting with village communities more than you would on the more popular Annapurna treks.  Siklis Trek is well known for sustaining rural stylishness and becoming familiar with Gurung villages. You will not find any houses which are constructed with modern technology. In one sentence, our Siklis Trek is an exploration of rural life in Nepal with a traditional approach. Siklis is near to the chief Annapurna Trekking routes. If you want to enjoy something new-fangled then we can pitch a tent and sleep in the great outdoors each night, adding something extra and adventurous to the trek. Moreover, Siklis is a typical Gurung village.

The Siklis Trek is a restful, easygoing route which permits sufficient time to observe and explore the plentiful Fauna and Flora. Apart from the cultural allure, Siklis Trek offers panoramic views of the numerous peaks in the high Himalaya. Appropriate seasons to go for the Siklis Trek are the months of February, March, April, May, June, and September to November. July and July are also good for the trek but due to the rain you may or may not view the dazzling scenery. The minimum altitude is 820m and its maximum altitude is 2100m.  This trail is sparsely populated with trekkers.  It is a great immersion into Nepali village life and you will never forget this experience!
