Kathmandu – A Wonderful City for New Impressions
Kathmandu provides a feast for the senses. Cows wander the streets while rickshaws cycle past small colorful temples. Haphazard lanes and the smell of incense surround palaces. It’ll be a lot to take in when you land, but there’ll be no question that you’re somewhere unique and unforgettable. You’re greeted at the airport and transferred privately to an upmarket hotel within the city. Then, you’ll meet with your Kathmandu guide and to confirm your plans. Today you’ll take a tour by rickshaw, as it’s an unobtrusive way to enjoy the sites, and it will be just the start of your adventure in Nepal.

When you think of Nepal, alpine trekking along Mt. Everest often springs to mind. This style of travel may not be suitable for every family. However, there’s much more than initially meets the eye in this country in the sky. Nepal is a chance to escape the rest of the world and be together as a family, amid otherworldly landscapes and a warm, welcoming culture. This two-week family vacation is designed to be flexible so that most days can be adapted to your interests and adventure level. For example, it’s possible to drive, cycle or walk between Nagarkot and Dhulikhel, or do a little of it all as you connect these small villages.
There will be plenty of free time, but also a series of evocative Nepalese highlights. Go searching for rhinos in the jungle, try family rafting on the Trisuli River, and discover a temple that’s guarded by monkeys. Watch the sunrise over the Annapurna mountains and watch the sunset over Everest. Spend lazy days around a lake then soak up the adventure as you bump through the trees on the trail of elephants. Almost all the tours will be private as a family, with local guides who can adjust the tempo and inclusions based on how you feel. There will be no need to rush in Nepal. You’ll come as a family and travel at your own speed.
Begin your journey in Kathmandu, a city full of exotic impressions and highlights. It’s a city that offers a lot, and your two local guides will show you exactly where to look. Then, travel to the mountains to savor the quiet local villages and a feeling of alpine solitude. After, you will fly to Pokhara for relaxation on the lake, which will be a good chance to really escape and enjoy time just as a family. Follow this up with some leisurely time spent along the Trisuli River in Kurintar. Then on a jungle safari, everyone will come face to face with nature’s giants. Return to Kathmandu at the end of your trip and you will have time to rest before your family flies out the next day. Interested in reading some of our travelers’ top Nepal tour reviews?
