When a family sets out to enjoy a holiday, diverse travel choices depending on individual’s adrenaline hunger, age, past travel experiences and most importantly the reasons for the love towards traveling come into play.
Our Family Holiday in Nepal addresses all these diverse preferences and reasons of traveling of every member of the family. It incorporates soft adventure of trekking along the trails of magnificent Annapurna Region, exploring the cultural delights of Kathmandu Valley, sightseeing around the nature’s bride Pokhara, penetrating the woods of Chitwan National Park and experience the exhilarating Mountain Flight to king-sized Khumbu .
The soft trekking adventure to Poonhill Ghorepani can be done by anyone fit enough to walk five hours a day and the acclimatization problem that normally comes during trekking in Nepal is never an issue on this trek as it goes not higher than 3210m. Children above ten years old and the elderly citizens can easily complete this trek. However, in case of walking problems kids or senior citizens might encounter, horses or ponies are easily available to take them to the ultimate destination, Poonhill 3210m.
The authentic culture of Gurungs (ethnical tribe living in the region for centuries), the floral and faunal biodiversity of Annapurna Conservation Area Project and the Himalayan panorama dominated by Annapurna, Fishtail and Dhaulagiri are the major highlights of Poonhill Trek that slides up and down the rolling hills as the waves in the ocean do.
The sightseeing tours around cultural treasure troves of Kathmandu has been the fascinating aspect of tours in Nepal for travelers having all preferences.

However, all these cultural landmarks of Nepal still manifest the colorful Nepalese lifestyle and clearly gives the message that Nepalese have already accepted the disaster as nature’s warning and have started to rebuild Nepal more powerful and prosperous than ever.
