Family Tour in Nepal is a great introduction package to explore world heritage sites, nature beauty, and wildlife of Nepal. Discover the cultures of the Kathmandu Valley, whose long history dates back to ancient medieval times.

A short twenty-five-minute flight takes you to the beautiful city of Pokhara, known as the city of lakes. After getting refreshed, it's time for you to relax around the lake and marvel at the ice-clad peaks towering above you. You leave Pokhara to embark on a wonderful four-day trek into the foothills of the Annapurna Region. You trek up to Ghorepani Poon Hill. Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is an ideal family trek. It is one of the shortest and easiest treks in Nepal for families and children. It is set on a wonderful trail through lush sub-tropical forests rich with wildlife, pretty villages, and neatly terraced hillsides. It is famous for its spectacular Himalayan panoramas, especially the sunrise over the Himalayas from Poon Hill. It is an easy trek, ideal for families, and a great introduction to trekking and mountain cultures. On your return to Pokhara, the next day there is a guided sightseeing and cultural tour around Pokhara. You hike up to the World Peace Pagoda, one of the best viewpoints to see the Fewa Lake and Pokhara Valley. The panoramic views of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna Range, and Manaslu Range are marvellous. You drive to Sauraha from Pokhara to experience jungle activities and wild animals in Chitwan National Park. You spend two nights in Chitwan National Park, participating in full jungle activities. The activities are elephant back safaris, canoe trips, jungle walks, and bird watching with cultures.

Then you return to Kathmandu after completing our 12-day Family Tour in Nepal. You join the farewell dinner in the evening organized by Nepal Gateway Trekking. The following day, we transport you to Kathmandu airport.

Before The Tour: 

Our 12-day Family Tour in Nepal package includes two nights’ accommodation in Kathmandu before the trip starts. On the second day in Kathmandu, you do a one-day sightseeing tour in the Kathmandu valley. Our expert tour guide leads you to visit four places listed in the World Heritage Sites. The time also allows us to sort out the Annapurna Conservation Permits. You meet your trekking guide in the afternoon and check the equipment.

These two days in Kathmandu provide an opportunity to adjust and settle into Nepal. A visit to the local bazaar (local market) and the many vibrant, colourful markets is recommended. You also have time to purchase any items needed for the trek. There are some branded shops like North Face and Mountain Hardware. Besides these, many other shops sell trekking gear of very acceptable quality at a much lower price.

  • Family trekking tour In Nepal

    Kate, Toby, Theo, and I wanted to thank you very much for organizing the Ghorepani Poonhill trekking for us on our holiday.  We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed every minute!  And we were particularly grateful that you were able to make some last-minute changes for us.

    We will certainly recommend your company Nepal Gateway Trekking to any of our friends if they inquire.

  • Best of family tour in Nepal

    Our decision to travel to Nepal actually was very spontaneous, but we never regretted about this decision. From the very first moment when we step out at Kathmandu airport, Raj made everything possible to make us feel cared about and excited.

    We spent altogether 3 weeks traveling under Raj's guidance on the Anapurna trek, then living for few days in a small resort Pokhara, visiting Chitwan national park, enjoying amazing Lumbini, and finally exploring the Kathmandu area. 

    Raj took the best care of us, resolving unexpected issues in the best way and actually becoming our friend, with whom we still keep contact in 2 years after our trip. We certainly would like to come back to Nepal again and the only person we would trust is Raj. 

    We would recommend Raj as a trusted, knowledgeable, bright, and friendly person and just a very nice man!
