Trekking with kids

We are a Norwegian family with 2 boys aged 8 and 10. We have been walking the mountains in Norway and Austria since the boys were very small. This year we wanted to do something very special with the kids.

We were curious about Nepal and started our research about the country. We soon realized there were so many companies to choose from. When traveling with kids you are extra cautious, and really want to make the right decision when choosing a company. For many days we read “about us” articles from many companies, and then we come across My Everest Trip. The company had existed for many years, the manager was not just a person in a suit doing business he was also a very experienced guide and they had very good reviews. I send him an email and the next morning I woke up the already responded.

We decided to do the Ghorepani Poon Hill, this is a very popular trek but suitable for kids and it gave us the opportunity the see Pokhara also and try paragliding.

Poon Hill was a good choice. Puru gave us very good guides and porters. The trek was a good mix of beautiful nature and cultural experience. The kids were so happy, that they quickly had a good connection with the porters, developing their own way of communication. The sunrise from Poon Hill was spectacular on a clear morning. The landscapes offer so much beauty, from the softness of the rhododendron forests to the roughness of the snow-covered mountains. It was fun to visit the Gurung cultural museum, as we try to teach our kids that people live in many different ways.
Doing this trek was very good family time and the service was great. Because we did not have to worry about anything we could just enjoy every minute of our journey.
We would like to thank Puru and his great team for a fantastic vacation in Nepal and we highly recommend My Everest Trip.

Best regards from Geir
