Nepal Family Adventure

11 days from £1990pp plus international flights.

If you want an unusual and diverse adventure to enjoy with your family, this superb holiday could be it!

Nepal really isn't just about trekking and temples! This trip shows just how much more there is to this fabulous country.

 
Whether you're a couple, group of friends, or a family with children (we'd suggest from about 12-years-plus, mainly due to the rafting), you'll come away from this holiday with a huge smile on your face and incredible memories to treasure.
 
The trip includes the 'must-see' sights in the Kathmandu Valley, such as Patan City, Durbar Square, Boudhnath and Swayambunath Stupas, and Bhaktapur.  
 
Then there is adventure - a white water rafting trip on the Trisuli River. It's mostly grade 2-3 rapids (no higher) so it feels thrilling and intrepid without being too scary for someone who's never done it before.
 
We stop the rafting an hour or so's drive away from Chitwan.  Once here you start you wildife experiences, with elephant-back safaris, canoe rides, walks, and jeep safaris (if in season).  With lukc you'll spot some great birdlife, a variety of wildlife such as gharials, spotted deer, monkeys, and hopefully also the Asian one-horned rhino.  Tigers are possible, but quite rarely seen, so this would be a huge bonus if that happened. 
 
Heading back north you then head for the ancient hilltop town of Bandipur before arriving in Pokhara. Walks, hikes, lake boat trips, and seeing the sunrise a lighting up the Himalayas - it's all possible from here.
 
Nepal really does put a smile on your face!

Elephant-back safaris are the best way of getting through the park, lifting you above the tall grass of the Terai and through the dense undergrowth of the jungle to areas that are impossible to reach by car. It is also possible to explore the region on foot or by canoe. Full board.
