The ideal trek for those who desire a slower pace in the mountains.
So many of the treks are designed for the younger trekker who can cover great distances in a short period of time. But what about the older trekker? How about the trekker who's got a young family? How can they possible enjoy a Himalayan adventure when it feels like a foot race to keep up?
The Family Holiday in the Annapurnas has been especially designed for the slower trekker. Whether you are dealing with a young family, arthritis or simply enjoy a slower pace, then this is the trek for you.
The Family Holiday in the Annapurnas is a total of 14 days. This trip features seven days of trekking where you will experience the hot springs at Tatopani, watch a beautiful sunrise over the Annapurnas from your vantage point of Poon Hill, while wandering through remote mountain villages.
But there's more! Spend a day in the lakeside city of Pokhara boating on the beautiful blue waters of Lake Fewa. Take a day exploring the Kathmandu Valley where you will walk through ancient temples and royal palaces.
