Siklish Trek 13 Days
Rough and wild, this trek cuts through less travelled country south of Annapurna II & Lamjung Himal massif. Good mountain views and rough terrain, the local people are unaccustomed to trekkers. This trek is a spectacular short trek and traverses a variety of terrain from low land villages and rice terraces up to 3,000 meter where there is the biggest Gurung (Gurkhas) village as well as a national flower forest of rhododendron in the springs.
Siklish trek is known as Royal trek and this is an alternative to other short treks in the region, the SIKLISH TREKS probes an uncrowned corner of the Annapurna Conservation Area under the shadows of Lamjung Himal and Annapurnas II and IV. This fabulous camping trek takes you about a week, starting at Beganas Tal (Lake) and heading north to the Madi Khola, then following the river''s west bank up to well-preserved Siklish (1,980m.), Nepal''s biggest Gurung village. From here you strike westwards over the thickly forested ridge that separates the Madi and Seti Khola drainage''s and then descent via Ghachok, another Gurung settlement, to reach the Pokhara - Baglung Highway . Variations on this route are often touted as the ''Royal Trek'', after a rally the troops swing Prince Charles took through the area in 1980 to visit the villages of Gurkha recruits, as part of an effort to develop this into a model eco-trekking route.
