Annapurna-Sikles Trekking – Undisturbed- Scenic- Diverse

The Annapuran Sikles trekking trail in Nepal is not only a recently explored trekking route, but also a less frequented destination too. This Sikles trekking journey is one of the best for getting extremely close to the Annapurna region. With the highest elevation of only 2000m above sea level it is comparatively easy to attempt. It has natures best kept secrets, as it is home to various kinds of flora and fauna which are distinct and rare. This region is occupied by the indigenous Gurung communities, who follow age old tradition, and have a peculiar lifestyle that is unchanged and intact.

Annapurana Sikles Trekking journey starts with a travel by bus from Kathmandu to Pokahara till you reach Lamakhet. From here you will follow the trail that leads to the picturesque villages all along the Modi River. The very next day you will make way towards the Sikles, the trail follows the high alpine summer grazing route the shepherds use to herd their flocks above the tree line. The views from the ridges are inspiring. From here you will reach the Ghale gaun via Tara Hill Top at 3500m stay overnight and then head towards to Pokhara. Once you are in Pokhara your Annapurna Sikles trekking ends here. The following day you backpack early to catch a flight back to Kathmandu and back home.
