Siklis Trekking

Siklis TrekkingThis trek is specially developed for more inexperienced hikers or anyone who is interested enough to explore the countryside of Nepal . This area is really lacking behind in development.

The Siklis area is very close to the Annapurna trekkin trails. It lies north-east of Pokhara. Very few lodges and guest houses are available on the route. Therefore, it is not difficult to understand that we set up a camp for overnight stay. The beautiful village of Siklis is on the brink of a hummock at the height of 2000m.

This is a stunning Gurung village. The narrow lanes of this village are edged by the stones and mud houses. The houses are grouped in the traditional ribbon pattern. This village is surrounded by five other beautiful villages. They are Lama-thar, Sabha-thar, Harpu-thar, Dhaprang-tha and Gari-thar. These villages have their own role in the local community. Although this trek is relatively slow, yet it offers enough time to study about the flora and fauna available in this region. You can see some splendid views of the mountain on the route.

Client Testimonials

Namadste!
While doing trek in the khumbu region, we will witness the different views of mountains such as Kwangde, Thamserku, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, the "horse saddle" of Kanteiga and of course the summit of Everest itself. We take a short rest for a while and it allows us little time for acclimatization. Here, you prepare yourself to explore the ascent of kalapatthar which is an altitude of 5545m. While climbing down from Lobuche, you will see some glacial moraine until the peak comes into view. Finally, you will be witnessing the north face of Mt. Everest . We return through a different route through Panboche to Lukla. We catch a flight for Kathmandu from Lukla.
