Nepal takes pride in being home to the highest mountain in the world: Mount Everest standing at 8,849m. Kathmandu has a fabulous hippy vibe and everyone should visit the famed Rum Doodle Bar & Restaurant after completing a Trek. We did the Around Annapurna when Trent was 5 years old and every minute was spectacular.
It is supposed to take a minimum of 18 days to do the trek around the entire Annapurna massif, visiting the Tibet - like country on the northern slopes of the Himalaya and the dramatic Kali Gandaki Gorge. It is easiest and safest to cross Thorung La at 5,416m from east to west. We however had to to do the trek in 13 days and from west to east as we were meeting a friend who was doing the Jomsom part of the trek with us ... which meant that we had to make a 1,300m climb plus a 900m descent in one day.... and all with a 5 year old who sped ahead of us!
