“My family did a 17 days trip in Nepal with a 4.5 and 13 year old boys in tow. All of us enjoyed the trip immensely, considering that it s the first trek spanning a few days for the children.

The trip was specially customised for us, which included a 6 days trek to Poon Hill, a trip to Chitwan Safari and even a community service option to stay in Nuwakot- one of the villages affected by the earthquakes in 2015.

For city dwellers like us, we were afraid that our children would not be able to handle the rigours of the trek. With good advice and planning by Adventure Thirdpole, many things were made possible with the best possible service rendered.

My younger son is a fussy eater and even the porters are able to rise to the occasion and double up as cooks to customise meals to his needs where possible.

Hence i would highly recommend Adventure Thirdpole Treks to make your trip to Nepal the most enjoyable.”
