Trekking in Siklis is a very unique experience where you follow the ancestral trail used by the Gurung shepherds in the past which has been very well preserved to this day. Unlike many other treks in Nepal which are flooded with trekkers, Siklis trek offers one of the best “off the beaten path” experience where one can enjoy the real togetherness with nature. Trekking in Siklis lets you submerge in the traditional lifestyle of the Nepalese in the remote areas of Annapurna region. One can hardly see any other trekkers on the trail except for the local villagers every now and again. The forest is filled with beautiful songs of birds with dense canopies of the forest which opens occasionally providing the breathtaking view of Fishtail and Annapurna range. The Siklis trekking area is also rich in flora and fauna. During the spring season in Siklis, when the rhododendron flowers bloom, the top of the trees almost looks like red carpet from above. The unparallel view of the snow-capped mountains from the top of Tara Hill is something one will cherish forever in their heart. Siklis is one of the biggest Gurung villages in the Annapurna region and home to Gurkhas who are famous all over the world for their bravery. Although Siklis trek has easy access, it remains unspoiled from modernization which is why it is such a unique trip offering a lifetime experience in a very short period and makes it one of the best off the beaten treks in Nepal.
