Annapurna Siklish Trekking
Annapurna Siklish Trekking is a short trek starting from Pokhara. In the trek, we can have the amazing views of different mountain ranges including Annapurna South (7,219 m), Annapurna 1 (8,091m), Annapurna II (7,937 m), Lamjung Himal (6,983 m), Machhapuchhre (6997m), Manaslu (8,163 m), NgadiChuli (Peak 29) and Himalchuli (7,892 m). The people living in this area are mainly Chhetris and Brahamins. After we reach Siklis, we will be going through the largest Gurung Village in Nepal with approximately 700 houses. There, we get a chance to view the traditional Nepalese hill life and many more. If you visit these places in a summer time, we will be glancing over the white orchids and other Flora in the forest. But this is one of the areas where only few tourists can be witnessed.
The maximum height of this Annapurna Siklish Trekking is 1980m and is of 12 days or in some condition they are even more. In this trip, we get a chance to walk through shady forest of Rhododendron, view startling flowers and et-cetera. A bit rough and wild, we travel through less visited sites of Lamjung Himal massif and Annapurna 2. Annapurna Siklish Trekking is a spectacular short trek with different itineraries such as visiting low land villages and rich terrain, blooming forests, Gurung Village and many more. In the Gurung village, Jhankri (Shaman) and Lama (Priest) have important roles in the Buddhist community doing different day to day activities like marriage, death ritual activities, etc. This region is specifically famous for bird watching because of its unspoiled timbered environments where various kinds of birds thrive.
People can also make this trip with their families and children since it is not difficult like other mountain trekking. So, the Annapurna Siklish Trekking is perfect for every people who want high altitudes and other mesmerizing views to glance at.
