Kori Danda is a newly discovered viewpoint in Annapurna Region Nepal. Kori Danda is set in the Annapurna Region of Nepal, which means you will be surrounded by some of the most beautiful mountains. Annapurna itself is a famous trekking route destination in the world. Nomatter what your purpose to visit in Nepal but  trekking is the best way to explore and experience Nepal. Travel companies of Nepal are showing and promoting this trek as a newly discovered trek on this planet but it was already the most popular trek in Nepal. Very few people know that Siklies was one of the best camping treks in Annapurna foothills. Back in the 70s and 80s there were very few trekking routes such as Ghorepani PoonhIll, Annapurna Base Camp, Annapurna Circuit, and Sikles was one of them. So Kori Danda has recently become a popular viewpoint after seeing the spectacular mountain views. The Height of Kori Danda is 3800 M (12,467 ft) with the view of Lamjung Himal (6988m), Annapurna II (7937m), and Machhapuchhare (Mount Fishtail 6993m), and many more mountains. It is a paradise trek and especially the Gurung culture trek in Nepal. Sikles is a beautiful indigenous Gurung village; it is one of the biggest villages of Gurungs. This trek may be called Sikles (Kori Danda) trek as well. 

From Pokhara to Sikles is about 47 Km (30 Miles) and to reach there we have to take a jeep drive. If you’re looking for an adventure that’s as close as your backyard, then this is the trip for you. We will start in the town of Pokhara, a bustling city that has all the amenities you could want. The first welcoming night will be at Sikles village, where we’ll spend our first night in a Gurung Homestay. These are traditional homes made out of wood, bamboo, and mud bricks. After leaving Sikles on the second day we will be staying in the lodges and campsites. It’s not an easy trek, no extreme but a moderate trek climbing over rocky trails with little vegetation for support. But it will be worth it when you get to see all of Nepal from such an incredible vantage point.

Another major highlight of this Short Kori Danda Trek,  You'll also visit Kapuche Glacier Lake, considered to be the lowest altitude glacial lake in the world. The lake is located at an altitude of 2,546 metres from sea level—most glacial lakes are located above 4,000 metres altitude. The temperature of Kapuche Glacier lakes goes up to zero during winter and its surface turns into ice. The surrounding lake has a calm environment as it's situated in snowy mountains; sometimes occasional avalanches from Annapurna II and Lamjung Himal bring snow from their slopes down to the lake. If you have seen the avalanche clips in social media with the lake then it was from Kapuche Lake. That video was popular in social media and still popular video clip all around the world

What makes this tour very interesting

The Short Kori (Danda) Hill Trek is a brief trek in which you can see Nepal's Annapurna region from the vantage point of Kori Danda. The trek is beautiful and has excellent views of Mother Nature. You’ll be walking through the trail filled with mesmerising beauty of landscapes constituting the rich biodiversity, as well as encountering the local remote traditions and culture.  From Kori Danda you can reach Nyamla Pass, which leads to Manang—one of Nepal's most popular trekking goals. People of Nepal are so humble, kind, and friendly that they welcome you with warm greetings and give their warm hospitality.  As per local people, it is believed that Sota is the root of the Gurung ethnic group. It's where the birth of the Gurung ethnicity was born and spread around the country. If you spend more time looking around the place, you may still find remains of authentic royal residences that stood centuries ago.
