The trek is suitable for all people with sound physical health, and the same goes for the children. However, children less than 8, 9 years old are not advised for the trek, mainly due to the altitude. 

North of Pokhara, one of the finest of Himalayan journeys is the classic trek into the inner sanctum of the  Annapurnas. Here, giant peaks such as the 8000 meters Annapurna 1, as well as Annapurna South,  Gangapurna and Machhapuchhre, encircle the natural amphitheater known as the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek. Combining the trek into the Sanctuary with a visit to Ghorepani and the classic Himalayan viewpoint of Poon Hill, this trek manages to cram the full range of Nepalese trekking experiences into 10 varied days of walking. We encounter sub-tropical forest teeming with wildlife, pretty villages with their neatly terraced rice fields, as well as pleasant ridge walking and spectacular Himalayan panoramas. Passing through the 'gates' of the Sanctuary, we ascend briefly above 4000 meters into a world of ice and snow where we are surrounded by giant Himalayan summits.

 The Annapurna Sanctuary starts from Kathmandu to Pokhara by flying and start trek onward. Along the journey, you and your children can enjoy the stunning views of the Annapurna range, Mt. Machhapuchhre (6993m), Mt. Hiunchuli (6443m), Tilicho Peak (7134m), and many other snowy peaks.

The waterfall, rivers, glaciers, frozen trails, suspension bridges, and the forests will certainly turn your child into great storytellers. This trek will take your family to two base camps, Annapurna Base Camp and Machhapuchhre Base Camp. Apart from this, interacting with other children from the Himalayan region, and playing with chicken and goats will carve a long lasting memory in your child's mind.
