Trekking holiday for the whole family
You can experience the Everest region’s beauty and rich history on a six-day trek on this carefully designed trekking holiday. A short flight takes you to Lukla and the start of your trek in the Everest valley. Setting off on the trek, you will soon be immersed in one of the world’s most magnificent mountain landscapes.
Your children will see lots of local children on the trails, their homes. We can even go to visit a school or two to make it interesting for your kids. They might be able to interact or maybe even play together. Do bring some games such as “toss the pigs,” UNO, etc.; this will keep your children entertained or can be a way to invite local children to join in the fun.
Staying in locally run tea-houses along the way, you walk to the Sherpa ‘capital’ of Namche Bazaar. There’s time for acclimatization with a rest day before continuing to the celebrated monastery of Thyangboche, for incredible views of Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and, of course, Everest!
