Nepal is home to the world's biggest mountains, deepest valleys and the friendliest people! Using our many years of experience operating holidays all over the former Kingdom of Nepal, we have devised an itinerary showcasing the best that Nepal has to offer adventurous families. Starting in the colourful capital, Kathmandu, we'll visit temples and enjoy the cultural buzz of a city where Hindus and Buddhists live happily alongside each other. From here we take the short flight to Nepal's second city Pokhara, where the beautiful lakeside location augments the matchless views of the Annapurna mountain range. You can't come to Nepal and not go trekking so we have incorporated a short and easy trek through the scenically splendid foothills of the Annapurnas. With lots of opportunity for social interaction en route, we can expect an especially warm welcome from the ever-friendly Nepalese villagers. Throughout our trek and especially from the high point of our trek, on Panchase Hill, there are wonderful views of the snow-capped Annapurna and Dhaulagiri peaks. From Pokhara, we drive to the Trisuli River and enjoy 2 leisurely days of rafting, drifting slowly down to Chitwan Jungle Lodge, where elephant rides and jungle walks will keep everyone entertained. Mixing magical landscapes with plenty of time for sightseeing and relaxing in Kathmandu and Pokhara, this is the ultimate Himalayan family holiday brought to you by the experts!
Is this holiday for you?
This is a multi activity trip which includes an element of trekking in Nepal's foothills, rafting on the Trisuli River and various jungle activities in Chitwan National Park. The trekking part of this trip is reasonably straightforward on generally very good trails between the villages of this accessible and yet less-visited part of Nepal. Short walking days allow us plenty of time to rest and to enjoy the lovely scenery of the foothills of the Annapurnas. We can even arrange for tired, small individuals to be carried by one of the porters. Moderate altitudes and activities make this trip suitable for children over the age of 6, with enough action and diversity of people and places to keep teenagers happy too.
