Annapurna Siklis trek is one of the spectacular short trek with good Mountain View. It is located to the north east of Pokhara, at about 2000m elevations, in the shadow of Annapurna II and Lamjung Himal. The views of the Annapurnas, Machapuchhare and Lamjung Himalaya is one that will remain etched in your’s mind forever as you make the way through the warm rice fields of Bhurjung Khola. Very quickly your steps lead you to the edge of the rhododendron forest as you trek through Brahmin, Gurung & Magar villages. In April month, this forest is ablaze with amazing and colorful rhododendron and magnolia trees creating a wonderful foreground to the 180 degree panaroma of the Himalayas.
The views of the Annapurnas, Machapucchare, Lamjung and Manaslu are spectacular on a clear day or night from Tarahill. Beyond this point, lying at the foot of Lamjung (it’s ridge humped like that of a Gaur – Wild Buffalo), is the village of Siklis. For hundreds of years generations of young men from this village have served as Gurkha Soldiers in the British Army. From the villages of Parje and Siklis we climb even higher to sheep pastures where the silence of the mountains is occasionally broken by the thundering avalanches and the mountains seem only a stone’s thrown away. The ever so fun loving and friendly villagers, their proud and simple lifestyle, the never ending activity in the fields, children off to school, the smart stone steps that connect these remote settlements to ever growing cities, all remind us how much we actually need and with how little they are content with.
