Nepal Family Adventure tour

Tour Experience

Family adventure holiday in Nepal, specially designed for parents with children aged 6-16

Available

Group departures during school holidays. Private departures all year round

Location

Kathmandu, Chtiwan and Pokhara

This tour has been specifically designed for families that want to bring their children to Nepal for an exciting tour that combines some adventurous activities with a few visits to exotic temples and cultural sites. We include Hindhu & Buddhist temples in Kathmandu, an Annapurna camping trek, some easy white water rafting and wildlife viewing in Chitwan National Park. Group sizes are kept small, with carefully selected guides who will do much more than just explain the history and surroundings to you.

We start our family adventure in Kathmandu, exploring its mazy alleyways, Buddhist Stupas and Hindu temples. We then fly along the edge of the Himalayas to the lakeside town of Pokhara for the start of our 4-day trekking into the foothills of the Annapurnas. The trek takes us through lush rhododendron forests surrounded by incredible mountain vistas, culminating in a climb to the top of Panchase Hill for great views over the Annapurnas and on to Mustang and Tibet. From Pokahara we drive back towards the Trisuli River, stopping en-route at the traditional Nepalese trading town of Bandipur. Our next fun adventure is a day spent enjoying some white water rapids alongside some of Nepal's beautiful countryside. The Trisuli River is relatively calm but there is still enough action to get everyone on-board excited. Leaving the Trisuli River behind we head down to the Terai and Chitwan National Park for two amazing days enjoying jungle walks, elephant safaris and canoe trips into the Park. There is also the chance to help bathe the Elephants that you ride into the Park. Finally we drive back to Kathmandu where the tour ends.
