Description of Nepal family holiday
This 12 day family holiday in Nepal can be tailored to suit your clan with a variety of activities to be experienced around Kathmandu, the Annapurna mountain range and the Chitwan National Park.
A family holiday in Nepal also represents a cultural and, sometimes, spiritual experience with time spent in Kathmandu unlocking fascinating stories and curious questions as you find yourselves in the realm of holy men, living goddesses and incense cloaked Buddhist temples.
Moving on from the delights of Durbar Square you'll find Pokhara and its lake in the shadow of the Annapurnas offering all manner of opportunities to immerse yourself in Nepalese life with boat rides, cave exploration, Tibetan traders and sunrise views of the Himalaya range.
For animal lovers there's nowhere better in Nepal than Chitwan National Park from where to track tigers, rhinos and elephants in the jungle. Jeep rides provide a perfect perspective for watching wildlife in their natural habitat.
Accommodation on this holiday is often in smaller farmsteads and within rural villages which gives kids a chance to experience life without mod-cons as well as encouraging them to cook, take on chores and simply enjoy the feel of playing outdoors, away from the trappings of the modern world.
At the end of the day, local people in Nepal simply love kids and no matter whether your family are exploring in the jungle or trekking in the mountains you'll find an authentically friendly welcome, guaranteed to last a lifetime and inspire future travels for your next generation.

Reviewed on 06 Jan 2019 by Helen FeeneyThe whole trip was amazing, with so many fantastic experiences. We really enjoyed the Annapurna trek, in particular the sunrise at Poon Hill. The trekking guide, Yubraj, and porters were good company for our 2 sons (13 and 14) Read full review
Reviewed on 23 Apr 2017 by Angela RyanThe scenic flight in the Himalaya's was a highlight. The Jungle Lodge in Chitwan was fantastic and the kids loved it. Fantastic break - lots of fun and very interesting. Were disappointed by the Haze/pollution and hope to return during a clearer time of year. Read full review

PlanetMost travellers visit Nepal in order to enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery, often on a trek. Unfortunately many of the trekking areas are now very over-developed and tourism has had a negative effect on the environment. For example you can find toilet paper littering some routes as well as discarded plastic bottles and other detritus from trekkers. We arrange all of our trips in conjunction with a local partner in Kathmandu that we have selected partly because of their strong responsible travel commitment. Together we provide detailed advice to trekkers on how to behave responsibly when on a trek, for example giving simple suggestions such as taking a supply of small plastic bags (nappy bags are ideal) in which to bag up toilet tissue so that it can be taken back to the camp at the end of the day and burnt. We also advise trekkers in remote areas that they must be careful not to use soaps or detergents in or near water courses in order to minimise the effect on both the aquatic life within the river but also to prevent problems with people living downstream.
PeopleAs mentioned above, we have selected our partners in Nepal partly due to their responsible travel ethos. This extends to social as well as environmental concerns and our partners have been instrumental in trying to pioneer a 'better' way of trekking in the Himalayas. Essentially many of the main trekking routes have become very busy which does not provide a great experience for travellers and also means that tourist revenue is concentrated in a couple of specific villages, leaving surrounding areas very poor. Our partners have assisted in the development of a number of tea houses in more remote villages thereby helping to 'spread the wealth' whilst also having the great knock on benefit of providing a unique experience for trekkers.
All of our treks are guided by an experienced local mountain guide who will provide travellers with an insight into local village life and also give advice on appropriate behaviour such as taking shoes off when entering local houses.
When porters are used we have strict restrictions on the amount that each porter can carry, in accordance with advice issued by the International Porter Protection Group.
