The Sikles Trek is a beautiful adventure that takes trekkers to the marvelous Annapurna region. It is a trekking journey comprising of gorgeous Himalayan views, ethnic villages and a pristine natural environment of the Annapurna region. With dramatic Annapurna massifs greeting the trekkers at every turn of the corner, the Sikles Trek by the Himalaya Land Treks is an unforgettable trekking journey that is perfect for people who are looking for an easy traverse at the foothills of the Himalayas.
The Sikles Trek begins with a drive to the Pokhara city- the tourist hub of Nepal. Situated beside the beautiful Phewa Lake, the Pokhara city is a relaxing hotspot for tourists visiting the country. It is also the starting point of most trekking journeys in the Annapurna. Blessed with the panoramic views of the Annapurna mountain peaks like the Machhapuchhre (6997m) and the Dhaulagiri (8167m), Pokhara is an exciting natural metropolis with many historical and cultural sites to visit as well.
Likewise, the Sikles Trek has trails that take trekkers to ethnic Magar and Limbu villages of the region. It presents the chance to experience the ethnic culture of the Himalayan people of Nepal nearby. Nepal's multicultural attributes are presented quite brilliantly during the trekking journey, which adds a lot more charm and enticement to the trek.
Also, it takes trekkers to destinations like Ghale Kharka, Taprang, and Yangjakot. Trekkers meander along the maple and oak woodlands of the valley and cross beautiful Himalayan Rivers that cut across the verdant acreages like silver ribbons. Enjoy the alpine emerald forests of the Annapurna and catch glimpses of the elusive animals like the Danphe bird and the Red Panda along the trekking journey.
Similarly, paired with the sapphire mountains of the Annapurna Range decorating the skyline like an ivory tapestry, the Sikles Trek is one that presents its trekkers with an isolated and subdued adventure.
