“CHILDREN CAN BE CONSERVATIVE CREATURES WHEN BOUND BY NECESSARY ROUTINE – PUSH THE BOUNDARIES A LITTLE AND WATCH NEPAL’S MAGIC TAKE OVER.”
There are two camps of people: those who would send their children to a third-world country and those who would not. Parents should be informed that the country’s facilities and services will not be comparable to those in the Western world, and changing diapers halfway up a mountain is unlikely to be enjoyable. Babies should probably be kept at home, but for children aged 6 and up, Nepal is an adrenaline-pumping playground, with shorter climbs, mountain biking, rafting, and wildlife all available for their enjoyment, not to mention Kathmandu’s bazaars, which are a fascinating assault on younger senses.
ACTIVITIES FOR FAMILIES IN NEPAL
Poon hill Trek:
It’s not all about enormous endurance achievements when it comes to trekking. The Poon Hill Trek, in the Annapurna’s with a maximum elevation of 3,210m and thus a low risk of altitude sickness, is a fantastic introduction to the great outdoors for small adventurers who can’t sit still.
Narayanhiti Royal Palace:
The colorful faded splendour of the Narayanhiti Palace, which was the site of a 2001 royal tragedy in which Crown Prince Dipendra and his entire family were massacred, appeals to children. Everything is huge and bold enough to captivate their imaginations, and the stuffed heads of tigers and rhinos that line the walls will undoubtedly satisfy them as well, despite the fact that we grownups know they’re nothing to be proud of.
The bazaar in Asan, a market area in Kathmandu known for its authenticity, is the meeting point of six bustling streets that attract buyers from all over the world to buy food, spices, textiles, and electronics. It’s quite mesmerizing, and the exuberant, cheerful vendors put western children in the spotlight.
Travelling to Pokhara:
Pokhara is marked to be one of the best place to visit with kids due to its breathtaking view and many attractions such as: Phewa Lake, Open sky paragliding, Annapurna butterfly Museum, peace temple and sarangkot. All these places are adventurous to the kids as well to the parents.
Chitwan National park:
Take a private half-day jeep safari around Chitwan National Park. Monkeys, crocodiles, deer, and colorful birds abound, and the endangered one-horned rhino is a distinct possibility. You might see a sloth bear or wild elephants if you’re lucky (the bulk of elephants in Nepal are tamed), and if you’re very lucky, you might even see the elusive leopard.
Nepal is unquestionably becoming a more family-friendly location. Many trekking sites, such as the Annapurnas, were designated as difficult, difficult treks from the start – even the easiest treks lacked significant access or safety. Adventurers now trek with mobile technology, the internet reaches everywhere, and there are roads running up into the ranges, which many people consider a problem, but when you consider the young, the elderly, or the disabled, these factors have become a safety net and a mark of accessibility, especially for families with children aged five and up. Although Nepal is not an unending playground for kids (you can’t camp in the jungle unless you want to wake up with a rhino in your tent), it is a fantastic opportunity for families to explore together, whether on foot in the mountains, by bike in the valleys, or by finding wildlife in the jungle.”
