A Journey to the Unknown: Exploring Nepal with the Kids

Give your children an education they can’t get anywhere else by taking them with you on worldwide adventures. Traveling with kids makes even the most mundane destination magical, but they’ll learn more if you journey to exotic locations. Leave the familiar behind and explore Nepal on a culturally authentic journey with your children.

Open up the world of exciting destinations

There is no more valuable lesson than learning to accept people of all cultures and backgrounds without preconceived ideas. As the world we live in becomes more culturally complex, you will likely have neighbors whose ethnic origins span the globe. Worldwide travel changes your perspective by putting you in the role of the visitor as you gather memories.

Travel makes history come alive for young minds

The world is an incomparably rich learning environment. Seeing historical sites up close can make history come alive and cements the important names, dates, and events in a way nothing else can. A textbook can’t match the experience of watching the sunrise in the Himalayas as you learn about Nepalese Sherpa mountaineer Tenzing Norgay and Sir Hillary becoming the first confirmed climbers of Mount Everest in 1953. Build memories with your family they’ll never forget.

Take the circular tour around Manaslu

The unique circuit around the 8,000-meter peak, which is tucked in between Annapurna and Ganesh Himal, takes visitors through each of the regions to study the unique cultures formed by isolation and altitude. Young travelers are enchanted by the sights and sounds of the natural beauty of the sweeping forests, babbling rivers, and rich flora of the Manaslu region. The wild creatures will captivate their imaginations with names like tahr, pika, agali, and marmot. They’ll never forget the sweeping vistas of Cheo Himal, Himlung Himal, Nemjung, Gyaji Kang and Kang Guru, and Annapurna II.

Taste the local cuisine firsthand on a trek through distinct regions

To taste the variety of cuisines in magical Nepal organise Manaslu tours by region so you experience the diverse menus as you trek through the regions. The availability of food determines the traditional menus, so even with modern travel techniques, each region has distinct dishes. The local preparation and ingredients are authentic and produce glorious flavors that can’t be missed.

Prepare a traditional meal at home with your children

If you can’t see Nepal firsthand, introduce your family to the flavors of Nepalese cuisine by preparing a homemade version of dal bhat. If Nepal had a national dish, this would be it. It varies from region to region according to available ingredients, but is a staple across the country. The base of the dish is lentil soup with rice and steamed seasonal vegetables served with condiments like pickles, curry, yogurt, chutney, and fish.

Family travel changes perspectives

Many people think traveling the world with children is impossible. The truth is, you can avoid the typical theme park destinations and travel as a family to places that will challenge your worldview without emptying your pockets. The education your family receives from hitting the road will open your eyes and change perceptions forever.
