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, jeep safaris and canoe trips into the Park. Finally we drive back to Kathmandu where the tour ends.

How much money do I need to bring with me?
Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.
How much should my backpack weigh?
A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.
- Do I need a porter?
Do I require a porter for carrying water?
On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.
