|Duration:||14 days (on trek 3 days)|
Discover the breathtaking natural beauty, rich culture, ancient traditions and wildlife of Nepal on a family holiday.
Designed to give you and your family a fun and fast-moving variety of experiences, this Family Adventure will explore the temples and bazaars of Kathmandu, trek beneath the giant mountains of the Annapurna range, enjoy a rafting expedition with a riverside camp and ‘go wild’ on elephant-back safari from a jungle lodge.
The gentle four-day trek in the Annapurna foothills is an amazing experience. We travel with a friendly crew of Sherpa porters, who are happy to carry weary youngsters in their specially adapted cane baskets. Each afternoon at our camp we may be visited by curious local children and, before you know it, the sound of games and laughter will fill the air. After our trek, we raft some easy rapids on the Trisuli River before spending two thrilling days tracking wild animals from elephant back or canoe, in Chitwan National Park.
