East Nepal Family Trek: Off the Beaten Path
Nepali villagers have long been famous for being gracious hosts to their foreign trekker guests, but the welcome mat is never thrown out more exuberantly than when the trekking group shows up with kids in tow. Nepalis have often said that until they meet your whole family, they haven't really met “you.”
This trek takes us through remote villages that rarely see trekkers, which only further enhances the authentic quality of the reception we'll receive. Based on past family trek experiences dating to the 1980s, we expect the interaction between the young people to be every bit as interesting as the encounters between the adult trekkers and villagers, maybe even more so. The backdrop to these villages consists of four of the world’s five tallest peaks, including Number One Everest and Number Three Kangchenjunga. And late November is the perfect time to trek anywhere in Nepal, with clear skies the norm and cool daytime hiking temperatures.
This trek is being led by Nepal veteran, Leigh Williams & her daughter Camille. This will be their third trek in Nepal Himalaya together and are very excited to share this experience with you!
