Can you tell me treks which are good for children?

It is always great when children join us on a trek.

Any children above the age of 8 can trek the Himalayas, provided they are well taken care of.

Having said that, all the treks which go up to 12,000 feet are apt for children. These treks are not too difficult and also offer great views.

Take a look at Dayara Bugyal, Kedarkantha, Brahmatal.

They are six days long, involve just the right amount of trekking (around 4-5 hours everyday) and leisure.
