    Annapurna Family Trek

    Hike between Himalayan villages with great views of high snowy peaks

    This trek in central Nepal brings you close to the high peaks without reaching into high altitude trekking. Easy to moderate hiking through villages, pastures, and forests gives your family superb opportunities to meet the friendly people of Nepal and appreciate Himalayan life. First, explore the lively city of Kathmandu, which boasts more UNESCO World Heritage sites than any other city in the world. Then, during your eight days of hiking, experienced kid-friendly leaders will guide you through the Annapurna region of central Nepal. Your trek includes moderate hiking with frequent stops to visit and interact in local communities and schools. After the trek, you can enjoy jungle elephant safaris and whitewater rafting, or extensions to other destinations in Asia can be easily arranged. You can select your own departure date at any time during the year.

    Although previous family hiking experience is helpful, you will not be "roughing it.” Hiking distances are based on slow-paced travel, and all travel is along well-used trails. Porters or pack animals carry most personal gear, food, and equipment. Young children under 50 pounds will have the option of hiking or being carried in specially-designed porter baskets. All meals and logistics are handled by JOURNEYS representatives, and no mountaineering is involved.
