The historic hill trek to Siklis – one of the oldest Gurung settlements and the second largest Gurung village in Nepal – still retains an aura of the ancient. Here, the Jhankri (shaman) and Lama (priest) have important roles in this Buddhist community, marriage, death and day-today lives of villagers. Siklis village lies above the Mardi Khola river(1,981m), overlooking Annapurna IV to the north and Annapurna II and Lamjung Himal to the east. The region is particularly good for bird watching because of its pristine forested surroundings where different species of birds thrive.
