The trek begins with a drive from Pokhara to Hemja which takes about 20 minutes. Sikles lies at the north of Pokhara. The trail passes through the less-visited territory of Annapurna and Lamjung Himal. Furthermore, it includes a wide range of flora and fauna along with some beautiful view of the Himalayan Mountains such as Machhapuchhre, Annapurna, Lamjung, and Manaslu. The three days two nights Sikles trek is a quiet trail with less number of trekkers. Also, this remote trek offers some stunning experiences and sceneries.
