Himalayan Trek – 7 Days

Trip Overview

Nepal is the classic destination for trekking and we have put together a perfect itinerary for you and your family to incorporate a short trek and see many cultural aspects of this fascinating country. And you don’t have to camp, or get worried about altitude – just walk and enjoy the spectacular views of those famous, and totally stunning, 8000m snow-capped peaks such as Annapurna I.

Our trek starts with a transfer from Kathmandu to a village on the Jomsom road. From here we ascend through terraced foothills on the outskirts of the Annapurna Conservation Area and over the next few days up onto the southern section of the Annapurna ridge. Here, we can truly experience rural Nepal and its welcoming people. Our highest point is the stupendous viewpoint at Ghandrung (1950m). Here we watch the sunrise over these immense peaks for a truly humbling and memorable experience. We descend past the popular Modikhola and along the main Annapurna Base Camp track. We have a night in the lake side town of Pokhara before a day in Kathmandu. Our trek is especially designed for families to take it easy on the altitude without any compromise on the trekking quality and those Himalayan views.
