Shiva Excursions has two packages especially appropriate for families with children interested in easier treks.  We can also set up tours and other treks specialized for family groups in a variety of regions in Nepal.  We look forward to creating an individualized trip sure to bring life-long memories for you and your loved ones.

Pokhara and Dhamus Trek

This trek is also known as the family holiday tour in the Annapurna region. Being a less visited trekking spot, it will be special for every trekker. Our adventure is a week long tour with a one day overnight trek as its highlight.  You and your family will view the panoramic vistas of Annapurna Himal, Dhampus Himal and Machhapuchhre Himal as we walk through clean valleys and along rivers.   This easy, short trek begins in Pokhara, one of Nepal’s gems. On reaching Pokhara, we will have short hike to Sarangkot Hill and then onward to Dhampus. Along the way, we will explore local cultures and traditions and you and your family can visit friendly locals who love children. 

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is a great trek for beginners and family groups with slightly older children.  This five day hike is at a lower elevation than many other treks and the gradual ascension to the highest viewpoint (3210 m, 10,521 ft) allows acclimatization without fear of high elevation problems.  From the viewpoint of Poon Hill, the stunning Himalayan peaks of the Annapurna (Dhaulagiri, Fishtail, Manaslu, Himchuli and others) can be viewed. The golden sunrise over the white peaks is one of the best views in Nepal. You and your family will also be immersed in the culture and lives of the ethnic Magar and Gurung people as you walk through and stay in tea houses in their villages.  

We will work with kitchen staff at every stop to ensure best hygienic practices and use of purified water.  Our guides love children and will be happy to spend time answering their questions and ensuring your children’s maximum enjoyment of the experience.  We will meet you at the airport and be with you every step of the way.

Please contact Shiva Excursion so we can offer you expert advice, skilled guides, and a great price for your family vacation.

Best trekking season – while this trek is best in March, April, May September, October, November and December, it can be accomplished all year long.
