Description of Nepal family holiday, walking in the Annapurnas

This Nepal family holiday, a small group tour, walking in the Annapurnas, is an incredible 12 day experience, trekking at low altitude in the great range’s foothills with expert guides and porters supporting you throughout. Minimum age on this small group tour is six years old.

Although we do some excellent treks through ancient oak and rhododendron forests, across alpine meadows and valleys with the most mind numbing views of the Annapurna Range, we also stop at many traditional villages en route.

The trip also includes some time in Kathmandu, a city with more UNESCO World Heritage Sites than any other city, but also have wonderful overnight camping experiences , such as by mountain lakes or with morning views of Annapurna South. Camping is in our permanent eco- campsites.

The final leg of this family holiday in Nepal is at Chitwan National Park, staying in a lodge on the outskirts of the park with chances to see rhino and perhaps even an elusive Bengal tiger. With plenty of other adventures to be had here too such as jungle walks, canoe rides and bird watching treks. Our final journey back to Kathmandu is by vehicle, with time left to enjoy this charismatic city some more.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The whole adventure was superb and suited our family aged 8 - 69 very well. Walking in the mountains with the entire family group was memorable and those who had not been to Nepal before promise to visit again and again.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


The trip was perfect and as we were a private group we were able to "tweak" the itinerary to suit us. For example adding in an extra day in Pokhara and then rafting part way down the Lower Seti added a lot to the adventure. The road to Chitwan is going to be a major issue for years to come and so the road journey is not only uncomfortable, very long but also potentially dangerous.
Some family groups might prefer to be given the option of flying back to Kathmandu.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


We liked the way the team bought local produce from villages where ever possible. We felt that camping was a better option than tea houses to overall benefit the villages through which we travelled.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


An excellently organised trip. One "unpleasant" experience was the elephant breeding centre at Chitwan. As we had stressed that our family had strong interests in the environment and wildlife we did not need to visit a centre that was clearly breeding animals almost entirely for tourism. It simply reinforced our views that such practises are no longer acceptable.

Read the operator's response here:

World Expeditions shares your belief that elephants should not be breed in captivity for the purpose of entertainment for tourists and to this end we do not include the Elephant Breeding Centre in Chitwan National Park in our itineraries. We train our Nepali guides each year in our responsible travel initiatives, with particular focus on our stance against elephants being used as entertainment for tourists. Since this activity is not included in our itinerary, we instruct our guides to avoid taking travellers to the centre as an optional activity. We apologise for the guide not adhering to our strict position on this activity. In light of your feedback we have sent a reminder to all Nepali guides we employ to actively deter travellers from visiting the Elephant Breeding Centre in Chitwan.
