Sikles Trek

Sikles Trek
10 Days

Sikles Trek is one of the most popular trekking routes of the Annapurna region which made us be pride ourselves on creating new and innovative a trek that breaks away from the norms. It is mostly known as the trek to the Ghale Kharka of the Annapurna region. This trek leads the wilderness away from traditional Gurung villages. This trek takes you to the remote villages that are far from the beaten track. This village is the second largest Gurung village of Nepal which lies in the Annapurna ranges. It has been specially designed 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. For this tea house and camping trekking, we venture into hardly ever visited valleys deep within the Annapurna areas. This valley lays in an eastern corner of the Annapurna conservation areas.

Sikles Trek is located to the northeast of the Pokhara city and the starting point of this trekking route is also Pokhara after 6 hours driving from the Kathmandu valley. Our trekking route offers the wonderful views of the Annapurna and the Manaslu ranges. During your stay in this villages, you get to taste their ethnical cuisines and see the much popular traditions dance which is called Ghato by Nepalese. This route offers wonderful views of Machharpuchhre, Annapurna, Lamjung Himal and Manaslu ranges of the Nepal Himalaya. The trek itself is not difficult one allowing time to study the wealth of flora and fauna to be found on this route. While you traveling in this route you get an opportunity to see our national flower everywhere in the forest of this route. The season between February to May and September to December is considered as the best season for trekking in this route with Best Trekking Guide.
