What is the best trek in Nepal for families?

Trekking in Nepal with family.

This is a question we’re often asked. We have 3 young children who travel to Nepal on a regular basis, we live in villages and trek the mountains with our children. We are well placed to provide advise on trekking in Nepal with children. We see posts on social media of children as young as 4 trekking to Everest Base Camp, whilst this is admirable, it’s not recommended for the average family. A trek to extremely high altitudes with young children is not going to be easy for anyone and it is our hope for your family to have a memorable experience, for all the right reasons! We always suggest starting with an easier trek with your children before taking on the Everest or Annapurna Treks.

Our recommendation for the best trek for families with young children is the Langtang Valley Trek, this is a relatively short trek but it takes you right up to the Langtang Himalayan Range, a highlight is the beautiful village of Kyanjin Gompa, this is trek destination and will never leave anyone disappointed. When you reach Kyanjin Gompa your family can enjoy visiting the Yak cheese factory, the monastery and the famous Dorje Lhakpa bakery where a slice of chocolate cake is a must have treat! If you’re children are aged below 14 years old we believe this is a great option. It has its challenges, mainly because of the many steps experienced on the first couple of days of the trek, but overall this trek is easier than many others and will be a memorable and beautiful experience for your family.

If your children are above the age of 13 we happily suggest the amazing Annapurna Base Camp Trek, this trek is relatively short with 7 days of actual trekking required and takes you right up into the mighty Annapurna Himalayan Mountains, it’s one that’s well worth experiencing with your family. The highest altitude is 4,150m which is much lower than Everest Base Camp where you reach a high of 5,400m. The Annapurna Base Camp Trek is truly spectacular, but we prepared for a LOT of steep steps, both on the way up and down.

For families with children above the age of 13, with preparation and training we are sure you will be able to trek to Everest Base Camp. This is considered one of the more difficult treks due to the altitude and length of this trek. It requires 13 days of actual walking and takes you to altitudes above 5,000m. This iconic trek is one that will create a lifetime of great memories for your family. It is possible to do this trek with younger children but your children need to be true adventurers with the stamina, mental, and physical strength to push through this incredible trek.

One thing is certain, regardless of your children’s age and ability, there is the perfect trek in Nepal that will suit your family. Speak to us about your options, we are very experienced in both trekking with children and also organising treks for families.
