Sikles Trekking is a new and innovative trek that breaks away from the norm. For this camping trek we venture into rarely visited valleys deep within the Annapurna range. Sikles Trekking leads the wilderness exploration away from traditional Gurung villages. We pass through upper areas further from Pothana and will be walking through untouched primary forest. It is a rare trek through the foothills of Nepal and it will be exhilarating. Besides the beautiful landscapes you will experience typical cultural villages.
Sikles trekking starts from Pokhara heading due north towards the holy mountain, Machapuchare. Our ridgeline route offers wonderful views of the Annapurna and Manaslu ranges. Climbing though oak, rhododendron and bamboo forest we follow ancient trails to the Madi Khola valley and stay in the villages of Sikles, TangTing and Bhujung.
The trail follows the high alpine summer grazing route the shepherds use to herd their flocks above the treeline. The views from the ridges of the endless blue foothills are unsurpassed anywhere in the country. This new trek offers a truly captivating village experience where you will get to see the real rural Nepal. We camp at unique sites, eat the local dishes and witness daily life as it unfolds around us. We also get to see a side of the Himalayas rarely seen.
Explore Annapurna’s eco touristic destination, encounter different varied cultural regions in front of Himalayas – dramatic views of the snow capped Annapurna Himalayan panorama, Mt Manaslu, the Western Himalayan range’s giant Dhaulagiri. This trek is ideal for both camping and lodge trekking. We will find beautiful eco lodges with foods and typical hill terraced cultural lifestyle. This trek is deal for every age group.
