There’s no reason to put off trekking in the Himalaya until the kids have left home. Aside from the amazing landscapes, cultural and wildlife encounters awaiting you, here are some other great reasons why visiting Nepal with your family is a good idea.

Family Adventure in Nepal: Trekking in the Annapurna Foothills and exploring Chitwan with a young child
Families with young children may wonder if Nepal is a travel destination they should even consider, since it's not your typical kid friendly "Disney Land". At kimkim we've put together several treks and mixed adventures for families with children, and by sharing their experiences we hope we can help you decide if Nepal is right for your family. First up, a family from the United States, who traveled with a 2 year old child. They did a 5 day trek and then explored Chitwan National Park for a few days.
Hiking is a shared passion for kimkim traveler Esther Yoon and her recently retired dad, so Nepal - a trekker's paradise - seemed like the perfect choice for a father-daughter adventure. Interested in the culture and beauty of Nepal without the crowds, they chose the Manaslu Circuit: a beautiful 15-day trek circling the eighth-highest peak in the Himalayas.
Kimkim traveler Clare Immens likes to instill a sense of adventure in her three children—so taking her young daughter Elsie on a multi-day trek in Nepal was a no-brainer. From card games in tea houses to making friends with baby animals along the way, read on to learn about their experience hiking through the Annapurna foothills on the Ghandruk Trek.
