5 Family trek

Some parents go on a trek even with their infants with porters carrying all the necessary supplies. But there are only a few treks we recommend for the family with kids.
Short Everest cultural trek could be done with luxury or deluxe lodges. The availability of comfortable accommodation and the up-close view of Himalayas including Mt Everest makes this trek the best for families.
A short and easy treks can also be organized in the foothills of Annapurna, based on luxury lodges. Check Annapurna Luxury lodge trek.
Similarly the Ghorepani Poon - Hill Trek is another trek we recommend for families with kids. This short trek is the most popular trek in Annapurna and the trek is not so remote. Availability of decent lodges and resorts with en-suite bathrooms make the trek even more convenient. Check Ghorepani Trek

Short family trek around Pokhara


One difficulty in trekking with kids is that they get bored quickly and it is difficult to keep up for many days. In such, many families also prefer Heli-trek. With the helicopter, you can escape the long drive to the trail head and also skip days' trekking in the foothills. Spent few nights exploring the deeper valleys of the Himalayas or climb to the view points before heading back or flying out.

7 Everest Heli Tour

Mt Everest is in a bucket list of most of the travelers. But if you don't have two weeks time to trek to the basecamp, Everest Heli Tour is the best way to step and experience the view Everest base camp both from air and ground. Then have a breakfast at 'Everest view hotel' with the world's highest mountains in the backdrop before flying back to Kathmandu. This 3 hours helicopter trip of Everest is one of the popular activities among families vising Nepal.
