    The Annapurna Family Hike is an interesting trip. Let’s have a look at the route of the Annapurna Family Hike.

    First of all, the trip begins with your arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport. You’ll be greeted by one of our staff, who’ll be present holding a Nepal Hiking Team display board. He’ll then escort you and take you to the hotel. There are fun plans for the other day.

    In the morning, we drive to visit the UNESCO sites Pashupatinath Temple and Boudhanath Stupa and continue to Bhaktapur.  From the ancient city, we head towards Nagarkot to see the beautiful sunset. The next morning, you’ll wake up early to watch the sunrise over the Himalayas from Nagarkot. Then you'll head back to Kathmandu, where you can spend the rest of the day exploring the city on your own. Later, we’ll take a scenic drive from Kathmandu to the beautiful city of Pokhara.

    We’ll then start the first hike of the trip. The hike will begin from Pokhara and to Australian Camp, a small village with stunning views of the surrounding Himalayas. Then, we will continue the trek to Sarangkot, another picturesque village with incredible views of the Himalayas. With this, the hike comes to an end, and we descend down to Pokhara.

    When is the best time for the Annapurna Family Hike?

    The Annapurna Family Hike highlights major tourist attractions and also activities like sightseeing, hikes, and also sunrises. Hence, you should be careful while choosing the dates for the hike.

    The best time for the hike is in the seasons of spring and autumn. The spring season (March-May) welcomes hikers with clear skies and moderate temperatures. Likewise, in the autumn season (September- November), the weather is generally stable and dry, with clear skies and great visibility of the mountains.

    We do not suggest the hike during the monsoon or winter season. Hikers will face problems walking through muddy and slippery trails and low visibility of the mountain ranges. Hence, it is best to choose only the best time.

    • Terrific Family trip in Nepal with NHT

      I along with my wife and 3 kids made a family trip to Nepal for collecting adventurous yet sensible experience. On the occasion my wife 40th birthday, I planned for a trip with 3 kids aged 9, 7 and 5. I contacted a range of travel companies in Nepal- all pretty well - but Nepal Hiking Team grabbed much attention. Apart from being responsive, NHT was also competitive and organized a trip of a life time customizing the trip as per our needs.

      We were welcomed with garlands of flowers by both Ganga (owner) and Lal (tour guide throughout) who were waiting for us. We were transferred to the hotel that night and briefed about the tour, Ganga also addressed several questions. The next morning we took a flight around Mount Everest - a magnificent experience. We also enjoyed sightseeing tour in Kathmandu which was wonderful experience. The following morning we flew to Pokhara and began our 2 days trek through the Annapurna region. We were accompanied by Lal and 4 Sherpas/porters who carried our belongings as well as my youngest child when she got exhausted. We climbed for 6km's uphill and had regular stops to get there at the Australia camp. Lal and team were very patient and did not have any issues with us. At the Australian camp, the team installed two tents for staying overnight.

      The next morning we again strolled on for 6km downhill, took a taxi for 20 minutes to reach at another location and after that walked 11km ahead on a slight uphill trail to get to Sarangkot. We witnessed the largest hail stones ever during a shower that lasted for around 20 minutes and we were transferred to shelter just before it began. The team knew the settings and made good decisions. We then stayed at a good hotel with a wonderful view and made preparation for the next morning. The next morning, with a ten minute walk uphill, we reached to the set embracing a 140km panoramic sight of the Annapurna district, possibly the most magnificent view I have ever witnessed in my life, though I’ve travelled a lot. We then experienced paragliding and moved down to Pokhara town while Lal and the team brought our kids down via van. We, moreover, enjoyed Pokhara Tour and then flew back to Kathmandu.

      Next day was our final day in Kathmandu and Lal took us around the city again. We saw the major sites before flying back to Singapore.

      On the whole, NHT was great. Remember, “If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys.” This trip can be counted among the most inexpensive opportunities if not the cheapest one. NHT took care and made very good decisions for us. They let us experience trekking while most of the companies refused because of my 5 year old kid. They carried her whenever needed and Lal was a wonderful and co-operative tour guide.

      6 days trip wasn't enough and I wouldn't hesitate to choose NHT to visit Nepal as it’s a wonderful country with amazing people. I wouldn't even hesitate to talk about the services of NHT as these guys nail it.

      Thank you Ganga, Lal and Team!!!!
