Overview

Book
Nepal is the classic destination for trekking and we have put together a perfect itinerary for you and your family to incorporate a short trek and see many cultural aspects of this fascinating country. And you dont have to camp, or get worried about altitude just walk and enjoy the spectacular views of those famous, and totally stunning, 8000m snow-capped peaks such as Annapurna I and Dhaulagiri. We start with a couple of days in Kathmandu soaking in the atmosphere and learning about Hinduism and Buddhism by visiting the enormous Boudhanath stupa and Pashupatinath Temple. We also have time to paint our own classic Nepali mask. Our trek starts with a transfer from Pokhara to a village on the Jomsom road. From here we ascend through terraced foothills on the outskirts of the Annapurna Conservation Area and over the next few days up onto the southern section of the Khopra Danda ridge. This is a less walked route, so we can truly experience rural Nepal and its welcoming people. Our highest point is the stupendous viewpoint at Mohare Danda (3300m). Here we watch the sunrise over these immense peaks for a truly humbling and memorable experience. We descend past the popular Poon Hill and along the main Annapurna Circuit track. We have a night in the lake side town of Pokhara before a day in Kathmandu where we have the option of a cooking like a local session. Our trek is especially designed for families to take it easy on the altitude without any compromise on the trekking quality and those Himalayan views.

Sarah from Hope Valley 

Thank you KE for a perfect itinerary for our first trip as a family to Nepal. We loved the wide ranging mix of experiences: the first three gentle days in Kathmandu seeing the sights, painting masks, enjoying a cultural dinner and meeting the locals; Then, a memorable flight to Pokhara and 6 days of superb trekking with a truly fantastic guide - quiet trails, meeting the locals (sheltering in their houses in a hailstorm), enjoying a homestay and some fantastic dhal baht, playing with the children and witnessing some stunning sunrises and breathtaking views; Followed by a relaxing few days in the beautiful town of Pokhara for post-trek massages and finally a cooking lesson back in Kathmandu. We had plenty of unplanned adventures but even (in true Nepali style) when we were stranded on an airstrip in the middle of nowhere for 5 hours it was good to know that KE’s local agents were working hard to find a way of getting us to the start of our trek without us loosing a day. We (including Heidi, aged 10) would 100% recommend this holiday to any family who enjoy walking, the mountains, meeting locals and other travellers, and experiencing something new. You need to be fit though, the trekking days aren’t long but Nepali hills are steep!
