Siklis Trek – Home of the Gurkhas

The village of Siklis: for hundreds of years, generations of young men from this village have served as Gurkha Soldiers in the British Army. The views of the Annapurnas, Machapuchhare and Lamjung is one that will remain etched in one's mind forever as you make your way through Gurung, and Magar villages. From the villages of Parje and Siklis we climb even higher to sheep pastures where the silence of the mountains are occasionally broken by the thundering avalanches and the mountains seem only a stone's thrown away. In April this forest is ablaze with rhododendron and magnolia trees creating a wonderful foreground to the 180 degree panaroma of the Himalayas.
