Description

On this spectacular 12 day trekking adventure, you will have the chance to see the beautiful Annapurna massif in the Himalayas of Nepal. However, unlike other treks that are challenging and often reserved for people with extensive experience, we have designed an itinerary that is perfect for beginners and even families with children.

The trip will begin in the city of Kathmandu, which you will have a day and a a half to explore with the help of a sight seeing tour. After that, we will take a brief, but incredibly scenic flight, to the beautiful city of Pokhara, and the day after that, the trek will begin.

Every day of the hike will consist of approximately 5 hours of easy walking, where you will get to see an assortment of rivers, lakes, forests, gorges, and so much more. And every night during this trip will be spent in a comfortable hotel or lodge, so you can be sure that you will get all the rest you need in order to feel fresh the following day.

There is a long list of marvellous sights to see along this famous trekking route. And because of that extensive number, there is something for everybody. Are you a lover of animals? If so, the village of Ghandruk is well known for its bird watching. Are you interested in shopping for local trinkets? If so, then Birethanti will be perfect. And finally, for those who want to gaze at the Himalayas, there are several spots that will allow you to see upwards of 30 different peaks, from Annapurna south (7,219m) to Fishtail (6,997m). Those spots include the villages of Ghandrung and Tolkha.

If you want to enjoy the Annapurna, but don’t have much hiking experience, or you want to enjoy it with your family, then this is the perfect trip for you. So send us a request and join us on this 12 adventure.

We can also guide you to the Annapurna base camp on this 16 day hike as well.
