Nepal is a wonderland tucked between the towering Himalayas offering families an offbeat yet enriching holiday experience. With its varied landscape ranging from towering mountains to lush green valleys and a diverse culture, Nepal presents itself as an ideal family destination. While the country enjoys a steady inflow of solo travellers and adventure enthusiasts, it is relatively undiscovered as a family holiday spot.

Despite Nepal’s numerous opportunities for young families, most young Indian travellers head to Nepal for treks like EBC (Everest Base Camp) and ABC (Annapurna Base Camp), while senior citizens opt for pilgrimages to places like Pashupatinath, Manakamna, and Muktinath. Unfortunately, young families aren’t fully exploring Nepal’s potential as an exciting destination with action-packed activities.

At Infinite Journeys, we curate various customizable solo, couple and family Nepal Tour Packages from Pune. Let us help you explore why Nepal makes for an ideal offbeat family holiday destination.

Why Nepal is Ideal for Family Holidays

Diverse Activities for Every Age Group

Nepal offers something for families with children of all ages. Youngsters can enjoy hiking, trekking, white water rafting, bungee jumping, paragliding etc. For leisure travellers, Pokhara’s lakeside promenade is perfect for long walks and boat rides. Nepal’s heritage and monuments, at Bhaktapur and Patan are on everyone’s checklist.

There is something for everyone in Nepal. It is just that most travelers are not aware of the plethora of options available to the travelers which we plan to address through this blog. 


Mesmerising Nature Views

Nepal offers families the chance to bond in the lap of nature. The verdant hills and valleys of Pokhara provide the perfect backdrop for lazy family picnics. The varied landscapes from terraced rice fields to snowcapped mountains provide plenty of photographic moments for the family album. Indeed, nature’s beauty makes Nepal a refreshing choice. 

Affordable Holidaying

A family vacation to Nepal is very affordable compared to popular destinations in Southeast Asia or Europe. Accommodations, food and activities are reasonably priced. 

As infrastructure expands, getting around to attractions is easy without hassles. Infinite Journeys, one of Nepal’s most trusted tour operators, curates affordable packages for families with meals, transfers and activities inclusive ensuring a hassle-free holiday. With good value, Nepal presents itself as an excellent family vacation option. 

Safety Away from Crowds

While popular family destinations like Thailand and Bali see large tourist crowds, Nepal still draws modest numbers. This works well for families looking to explore at their own pace without hustle-bustle. The friendly locals are always eager to help travellers, ensuring a safe holiday experience. Families also get to experience genuine local culture away from standardized packages. Accommodations range from heritage homestays to comfortable resorts catering to families with great amenities.

Must Try Activities in Nepal

Different locations across Nepal offer unique experiences for families:

Ghorepali- Poonhill Trek For Surreal Sunrise

The famous Poonhill Sunrise in Nepal is a must-see experience. Located at an altitude of 3,210 meters (10531 feet) in the Annapurna region, Poonhill offers breathtaking views of the Himalayan mountain range. As the sun starts to rise, the sky transforms into a canvas of vibrant colours. The majestic Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and Machhapuchhre mountains paint the sky with hues of orange, pink, and purple. It’s a surreal sight seeing the sky and mountains change colours together as the sun rises from the horizon. 

The most interesting aspect to note is that, although this is a trek, you are not required to stay in alpine tents or use toilet tents. The accommodation is in comfortable ‘Tea Houses’ run by local villagers. For those who love to trek but dislike the inconvenience or discomfort of staying in tents, this is a great option.

Mountain Flight (Kathmandu)


Everest Mountain Flight from Kathmandu is something you must experience. The one-hour flight takes passengers on an experience close to the highest peaks in Nepal, including Gosaithan (also called Shisha Pangma), Dorje Lhakpa, Phurbi Chyachu, Choba Bhamare, Gauri Shanker, Melungtse, Chugimago, Numbur, Karyolung, Cho-Oyu, Gyachungkang, Pumori, Nuptse and, of course, Everest. 


The mountain flights get stunning eastern Himalayan views, while flights out of Pokhara offer sights of the majestic western mountain ranges from a bird’s eye perspective. It continues to be one of the best ways to take in the natural grandeur of the highest mountains in the world.



Paragliding has emerged as an exciting adventure activity available in Nepal in recent years. It provides a simple, low-risk and affordable way for individuals to experience the thrill of self-powered flight while taking in incredible views of the Himalayas.


Sarangkot Hill, located just 1,592 meters above Lakeside in Pokhara Valley, serves as the breathtaking launch site for paragliders. From this altitude, pilots are treated to panoramic perspectives of three towering 8000m-plus giants: Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and Manaslu. In addition to these massive peaks, flights also reveal scenic lakes and greenery stretching as far as the eye can see. Birds-eye vistas extend to take in the landscape of Pokhara city below, with monasteries and temples. 


Ultralight Aircraft

Ultralight Aircraft, a lightweight, 1- or 2-seat fixed-wing aircraft offers a unique opportunity to view the Himalayas up close. Flights depart Pokhara Airport year-round except during monsoon season. Trips run daily from sunrise until 11 am, and 3 pm until sunset, depending on the weather. The half-hour tours fly over Phewa Lake, Pokhara City, and Sarangkot Hill, giving dramatic close-up perspectives of the Machhapuchhre massif. For more time amid the mountains, an hour-long option explores the entire Annapurna range from an elevation of 12,000 feet. 


Zip Flyer

Those craving adventure will find countless thrills in Nepal. Highground Adventures recently debuted the world’s most extreme zipline – Zip-Flyer Nepal. Located in scenic Sarangkot, it departs at a 56-degree angle down a 1.8 km inclined cable, dropping 2000 feet at speeds up to 160 km/h. For over a minute, riders zoom through the air overwhelmed by rushing adrenaline yet absorbing magnificent Himalayan vistas of the Annapurna range and Seti River. As the unparalleled zipline experience winds down, it gradually slows the rush until bringing the flyer to a safe stop after covering an almost 2 km stretch. Indeed, every second on this ultimate zip flyer is a new experience!


Mardi Himal Helicopter Tour

Want to explore mountains from close? The Mardi Himal Helicopter Tour presents stunning Himalayan views. This daily excursion from Pokhara Airport reaches the Mardi base camp within 12-15 minutes, flying up to 4,500m. Travellers can gaze upon a sea of magnificent peaks. In the Annapurna region, the tour circles landmark giants such as Machhapuchhre (6,993 meters), Dhaulagiri (8,167 meters), Annapurna Ranges, Gangapurna, Singu Chuli, Hiunchuli, Khangsar Kang, Tare Kang Glacier Dome, and so on while hovering near Mardi Himal itself. Passengers immerse themselves in postcard panoramas stretching from misty mountains and glaciers to verdant lowlands beneath. High-altitude helicopter rides don’t get more cinematically breathtaking than this scenic slice of Nepal. In roughly a quarter hour, the Mardi tour earns its status as the region’s premier mountain sightseeing experience.


White Water Rafting at Trisuli River

The Trisuli River, located along the popular Pokhara route, offers visitors an excellent opportunity for river rafting. Considered a prime whitewater destination in Nepal, the Trisuli is easily accessible from Kathmandu.


It presents the perfect option for those seeking either a full-day rafting excursion or a short multi-day trip, without extremely difficult rapids. Paddlers can enjoy beautiful scenery along the banks as well as a peaceful atmosphere, together with opportunities to experience local culture. During monsoon season, the water volume and current strength increase on the Trisuli. This draws more experienced rafters looking to test their skills against rapids that offer adrenaline rushes. 


Bungy Jumping in Pokhara

Pokhara offers Bungee Jumping from a truly spectacular site. The 80-meter tower at Hemja juts over a riverbank next to a 50-meter cliff, offering unparalleled mountain panoramas. From the towering height, fear and adrenaline surge over five pulse-pounding seconds of free fall. As jumpers plunge, breathtaking horizons of foothills, rivers and snowcapped peaks stretch in every direction. Few places on earth deliver such a heart-racing rush of adrenaline alongside such sublime natural beauty. For thrill-seekers searching for the ultimate bungee jumping experience, this spellbinding activity paired with freefall makes it one of the best bungy jumping sites in the world.

Swing Jump: World’s Highest

As the world’s highest swing jump, this activity gives bungy jumpers an extended free fall experience of around 8 seconds while enjoying the sensation of floating in mid-air due to the pendulum motion provided by flexible ropes. Soared to great heights from the suspension bridge, it allows thrill-seekers to feel like they are flying over the deep gorge.

Couple Swing: World’s Highest 

For those seeking an adrenaline-pumping activity to enjoy as a couple, the world’s highest tandem swing offers a memorable experience. Jumping together attached to the same flexible rope, couples can share the feeling of weightlessness while taking in stunning views of the Himalayas hand in hand.

Sky Cycle: The World’s Highest & Longest

Peddling a cycle suspended from steel wires hovering 255 meters above the river creates a unique experience of cycling the skies. Stretched over 600 meters going back and forth between the two towers, it provides a long joyride with scenic vistas to admire for cyclists moving at their own pace.

Sky Cafe: World’s Highest

Located right on the suspension bridge, this cafe offers jaw-dropping views of the Kaligandaki gorge along with freshly cooked meal options. It gives guests a one-of-a-kind dining experience while witnessing other thrilling activities taking place precariously close to them from great heights. Interested?
