Sikles trek

Sikles trekking in Nepal - An  alternative then other short treks in the region, the Sikles is an uncrowned  corner of the Annapurna Conservation Area under the shadows of Lamjung Himal and  Annapurna II and IV. This fabulous camping trek takes you about a week, starting  at Beganas Tal (Lake) and heading north to the Madi Khola, then following the  river’s west bank up to well-preserved Sikles (1,980m.), Nepal’s biggest Gurung  village. From here you strike westwards over the thickly forested ridge that  separates the Madi and Seti Khola drainage’s and then descent via Ghachok,  another Gurung settlement, to reach the Pokhara – Baglung Highway. Variations on  this route are often touted as the ‘Royal Trek’, after a rally the troops swing  Prince Charles took through the area in 1980 to visit the villages of Gurkha  recruits. As part of an effort to develop this
into a model eco trekking  route.
 The  historic hill trek to Siklis; one of the early southern Gurung settlements and  the second largest Gurung village, still retains an aura of olden times. Here,  the Jhankri (shaman) and Lama (priest) have important roles in this Buddhist  community, marriage, death and day-today lives. Siklis village lies above the  Mardi Khola (1,981m), overlooking Annapurna IV to the north and Annapurna II and  Lamjung Himal to the east. The region is particularly good for bird watching  because of its pristine forested
surroundings where different species of birds  thrive.
