Family Trekking in Nepal

Planning a Family trek in Nepal is like going on a cool adventure with your parents and siblings. Nepal is a beautiful country offering some of the most breathtaking and diverse trekking experiences in the world. Nepal is popular not only for the beauty it unfolds but also for how rich is in terms of cultural aspects which also adds another dimension to the trekking experiences.

If you want to trek in Nepal with the kids make sure to choose a family-friendly route that is suitable for their age and experience level. Prioritize safety by hiring an experienced guide who is knowledgeable about the area and can provide support throughout the journey. Plan your itinerary carefully, allowing for plenty of rest stops and shorter trekking days to accommodate the children's pace and energy level. Children run around very often and if they don’t take any break in the trek while going for the high altitude then they might face altitude sickness. Make sure your child is drinking a lot of water or hydrating the body. Trekking with younger children or babies is even more dangerous as they might not be able to tell you when something is wrong so make sure you educate your child about what are the symptoms of altitude sickness and what are the changes you will face if you face altitude sickness.

Nepalese are friendly and welcoming. Their warm hospitality can be seen in the way they greet strangers with smiles and offer help without hesitation. Whether you’re trekking in the mountains or exploring the bustling street of Kathmandu, you’ll key encounter locals who are eager to engage in conservation and share their culture with you. Packing is also important - bring comfy clothes, good shoes, snacks, and water. Make the trek a learning adventure by talking about the mountains, different cultures, and why it's essential to take care of nature.

Recently, a 2-year-old child named Carter Dallas reached Everest Base Camp, which is a really big achievement! The child went with his parents and became the youngest person ever to do this trek. It is a great example to show that even young kids can go on big adventures in Nepal, as long as they're careful and prepared.

The most favorable time to visit  Nepal is the Spring(March to May) and autumn(September to November)seasons. The weather and climate conditions are perfect with clear visibility However the best time to visit with kids largely depends on your preferences and the activities you plan to engage in.


Spring(March to May)

Spring season is one of the most preferred seasons to trek in Nepal with family the weather is ideal for outdoor activities such as trekking, sightseeing, and wildlife spotting. During this time you will see many rhododendron forests in full bloom adding the natural beauty and kids will surely love exploring the vibrant colors and the enchanting surroundings.

During the spring season in Nepal,the daytime temperature generally ranges from around 20°C to 30°C (68°F to 86°F) and in the night time it ranges from 10°C to 15°C (50°F to 59°F)  in the lower elevation and the major cities like Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Chitwan. In higher elevations and mountains such as those along the trekking routes of Annapurna Circuit or Everest Base Camp daytime temperature generally ranges from  10°C to 20°C (50°F to 68°F). At night, the temperature can drop below freezing 

Autumn(september to November )

Autumn is considered to be the best season to visit Nepal. The season is characterized by clear skies and moderate temperatures making it an ideal time for outdoor activities. As the autumn season starts right after the monsoon season so while trekking there is less chance of rainfall and all the dust is washed away by the rain. Trekking, wildlife viewing, and cultural tours are popular during this time. The main festivals of Hindu Dashain and Tihar fall during this season, providing rich cultural exposure for your child and offering the opportunity to learn the traditions and customs of Nepal.

During the autumn season in Nepal, daytime temperatures generally range from around 20°C to 25°C (68°F to 77°F) in the lower elevations in the major cities like Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan. However, in the higher elevation and mountains areas it typically ranges from 10°C to 15°C (50°F to 59°F).At night, temperatures in lower elevations and cities usually range from 10°C to 15°C (50°F to 59°F). In the higher regions especially in the nighttime temperature can drop significantly ranging from 0°C to -5°C (32°F to 23°F) or even lower at higher elevations.

Monsoon season(June to August)

Trek in the Monsoon season is not considered the ideal time but it’s not like trekking in this season is impossible it’s possible by taking precautions however we don’t recommend you this season to trek with the kids as monsoon season in Nepal brings heavy rainfall, high humidity, and cloudy skies, particularly in the lowlands and the southern regions. In Higher elevations such as the Himalayas rainfall can occur but it;'s not that intense. Trails can become muddy, and slippery and the chances of landslides are high making it more challenging to trek with kids during this season. During the season, daytime temperature can vary depending on the region and the altitude. In the lowlands the temperature ranges from  25°C to 35°C (77°F to 95°F) and nighttime temperatures range from 20°C to 25°C (68°F to 77°F).In the higher elevation and mountain areas daytime temperature may be cooler ranging from 25°C to 35°C (77°F to 95°F) Nighttime temperature can be colder ranging from 10°C to 15°C (50°F to 59°F) or even lower in some areas.

Winter season(December to February)

Winter season in Nepal starts from December to February and this season is also quite not suitable to trek as the daytime temperature in the lower elevation ranges from 10°C to 20°C (50°F to 68°F) and the temperature can significantly drop often reaching near or below freezing In the higher elevation temperature during the day ranges from 0°C to 10°C (32°F to 50°F). Nighttime temperatures can drop well below freezing, sometimes reaching as low as -10°C to -20°C (14°F to -4°F). Trails in lower elevations and popular trekking regions are generally accessible during the winter season. However, there may be occasional snowfall, especially in the higher elevation which can make the trails more slippery and challenging. Trekking with kids during the winter season requires the proper planning and preparation. Make sure that you have the appropriate clothing and gear. If you want to trek in the winter season make sure you book the accommodation in advance as availability can be limited due to the colder weather. 

Final say:
