A wonderful family adventure trekking beneath the Annapurna ranges combined with a wildlife safari at Chitwan. This low altitude trek in the Annapurna foothills is specifically devised for families. We include time in the traditional Hindu villages where children regard the Himalaya as their playground. Each campsite we join our crew and the villagers in dancing, singing and games of volleyball and cricket. There is also time to visit the local schools and markets where cultural horizons are so different from our own. During the trek we appreciate the magnificent oak and rhododendron forests as we ascend to alpine meadows that afford spectacular views of the Annapurna Range. After completing our trek we travel to Chitwan in search of rhino and the Bengal tiger.

Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.
