Trek Itineraries > Siklis Trek (8 days / 7 nights)

(Category - Moderate)


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.
