The Story

Best time to go: October - April
Best for: Adventure & Off-the-beaten track, Family Holidays, Trekking & Walking

So your children will ask, what are we doing, why is Nepal so special, why can’t we just sit on a beach? Just list what they will do on your family adventure to Nepal: trekking through some of the world’s best scenery, white-water rafting, heading through jungles on elephant back, paragliding, cycling, exploring vibrant markets and generally going to a place that all your friends will just say wow when they post the pictures and videos on social media. Yes, Nepal is a place that always exceeds their expectations, as it is can certainly never be called boring and will no doubt instil in them a sense of adventure and exoticism. With Millis Potter, we hand-pick guides that bring the destination alive for them, and it will never be another history lesson when exploring Kathmandu, in fact we like to do it on bikes exploring the hidden backstreets, markets and experiencing the local life as much as possible. We understand they might want to explore by day and have a pool in the afternoon, and we have selected hotels that do just that where possible. When trekking, it won’t be too challenging for them, just three or four hours each day, and if they still have energy you can head off on a day-walk once you reach the lodge. For older children you can combine that with a chance to paraglide in Pokhara or head through the many shops and stalls that line the lakeside. You then spend two days rafting down the Seti River towards Chitwan, and fear not, we use the safest of crews. You camp out beside the river before continuing the next day. We use the Seti River as the rapids are fairly gentle, and most of the time you just drift down the river seeing the world go by. Next up, you explore Chitwan National Park, either on jeeps, elephant-back or on boat. Spot one-horned rhino, deer, crocodiles and monkeys, and if you are really lucky, tiger. Fly back to Kathmandu and spend the final night up on the rim of the Kathmandu Valley – maybe head off on a gentle family cycle ride, or explore the amazing city of Bhaktapur for a little culture. All in all, we have no doubt they will return asking where is the next amazing adventure.

Customise Your Itinerary

Any of our suggested itineraries can be tweaked, changed or we can even start from a blank sheet of paper and build a totally customised itinerary. We can add or reduce nights, and enhance the day-to-day experiences by totally personalising them around you and your party. You might like a different style of hotel, or want to add on a beach stay at the end. In short, anything is possible, as we never like to offer you the standard journey, but provide the exceptional.

Idea 1

We know that some families have one or two week Half Terms, so we can adapt the itinerary accordingly.

Idea 2

Children love a beach stay to finish an active trip, and there are directly flights back to Muscat where we suggest the Shangri-La, or to Abu Dhabi where there are a host of excellent family-friendly beach hotels.

Idea 3

For older families, we can make the trekking a little more adventurous, or for younger families, just reduce it to a couple of light day walks
