Travel to Nepal on a family tour of the Himalayas.
For centuries, Nepal has been luring travellers with its snow-capped peaks and the tales of adventure that come from ‘the roof of the world’. Now, your family can see what all the fuss is about on their very own Himalayan Adventure – an action packed tour of Nepal’s most captivating towns, cities and scenery. Forget Hillary and Norgay, there’s no better feeling than reaching the end of an Annapurna trek as a family, taking home memories and photographs to last a lifetime. From quirky Kathmandu, across the Himalayas and into the steamy jungles of Chitwan, this adventure tour through Nepal will broaden the mind and invigorate the sprit.
Discover Nepal with a both leisurely and adventurous introduction to its people, traditions and, of course, its iconic mountains
Experience the incredible hospitality and welcoming nature of the Nepali people as you sip chai in mountain tea-houses, stay in a traditional house in isolated Bandipur, and enjoy a Nepalese dining experience in an old farmhouse in Nuwakot
Trek into the incredible Annapurna Range, through remote villages that offer superb panoramic views of the mountains, then camp high up in the Himalayas
Work together to battle the rapids of the Seti River, then drift down an isolated jungle-wrapped gorge to camp on a sandy, wilderness-surrounded beach
Strap on your safari hat and head deep into the jungles of Chitwan National Park – search out hidden tigers in a jeep, and look out for crocs while floating in a dugout canoe
The treks on this trip don’t reach very high altitudes (i.e. above 2,000 metres), but they can still be quite difficult. You’ll walk on well-graded paths between rural farming communities, but there is little, if any, flat ground in Nepal's hills. You’ll find the pace, distance and duration of each day's walk within your capability – as long as you are realistic about your fitness and abilities.
Evenings can be cold, especially when camping by the river (this is the Himalayas of course), so be sure to bring warm clothing, and a warm hat too.
Nepali infrastructure is still returning to normal after 2015’s earthquake, so some delays are inevitable. Embracing the slow pace and meditative atmosphere will go a long way toward your enjoyment of this beautiful country.

Amazing trip. We were very well looked after by our guide Sunaina. The Famous farmhouse in Nuwakot was a lovely place to relax after being in Kathmandu. Bandipur in the hills was picturesque. In Pokhara we took the opportunity to do some activities such as zip-lining and bungee jumping. It would have been nice to have an additional day in Pokhara to relax after the trek and enable us to explore more and I would have loved more time to be able to try out paragliding!!! The trek was fun and there was a definite sense of achievement once we reached the campsite. We were very well looked after by the porters and it is amazing what they can cook up for dinner with only what they carried up with them. Rafting was a highlight and in April both the water and weather was warm so we were able to have water fights between the 2 rafts when drifting along between the rapids. Rapids were exhilarating but not scary so ideal for a family trip. The accommodation in Chitwan was excellent. On the safari we managed to view several one horned rhino, peacocks, spotted deer, mongoose etc but don't expect a sighting of a tiger unless you are very lucky. My tops tips would be to pack light, we were able to get laundry done in 3 hours in Pokhara, wear plenty of sunscreen and take wet wipes so you can freshen up on the two camping nights as there is a toilet tent (hole in the ground) but no showers/ sinks etc.

The Himalayan Teenage Adventure was a great introduction to Nepal. Fantastic for active families, who are keen to immerse in a beautiful developing country.
