Nepal Getaway Adventure is specially designed for those families who want to make a travel plan together with their family members or with their friends. Nepal Getaway Adventure package tour is suitable even to small kids without any risk. Nepal is enriched with many places for family adventure spots for short hiking and tour around Kathmandu valley, river rafting, Jungle safari in Chitwan national park, and more adventures. Nepal Getaway Adventure is one of the popular trips for family adventure tours in Nepal. After exploring Kathmandu valley, you will visit medieval Bhaktapur city, before heading to the rural idyll of Nagarkot village in the Himalayan foothills. From the hilltop village of Nagarkot located at 2195 meters you will enjoy the beautiful sunset and sunrise views along with outstanding mountain panoramic views ranging from Dhaulagiri (8167 meters) in the west to Mount Everest (8848 meters) in the east, and the magnificent Kanchenjunga (8586 meters).

During the day hike, you can stroll around the terraced hillsides that cascade down the rolling hills, meet the local villagers and experience the rural lifestyle. After Nagarkot, we take you to the Trishuli River for fun-filled rafting and a riverside overnight stay. While rafting you will enjoy friendly and enjoyable rapids, an ideal float for beginners, family, and as well for birdwatchers where you can spot many different species of birdlife along the river and at its sandy shoreline, lined with thick lush verdant forest where some monkeys and other wild-life are often spotted. After Trisuli river rafting we drive you to Chitwan national park to enjoy the wildlife excursion. This park is one of the finest national parks in Asia and is listed as a World Heritage site in 1984. After Chitwan Jungle Safari we drive you back to Kathmandu and conclude the trip.

    Hotel Accommodation (Kathmandu)

    Royal Singi [4 Stars Category Hotel]

    This is an example of the hotel we may use in Kathmandu city. Your actual hotel will be specified when your booking is confirmed. Please check your email or booking confirmation.

  • After breakfast sightseeing tour begins which include all the religious, cultural & historical sites within the Kathmandu valley. Overnight in hotel

    Pashupatinath (World Heritage Site): One of the holiest Hindu shrines in the world, the temple of Pashupatinath is the focus of pilgrims from all over from Nepal and India. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and built in the familiar pagoda Style. Chronicles indicate the temple’s existence prior to 400 A.D. It lies 5 km east of the city center. This holy place is a picturesque collection of temples and shrines. All the dying persons are brought to Pashupatinath for cremation. Only the Hindus are allowed to go inside the temple.

    Bouddhanath (World Heritage Site): It is the world’s biggest stupa located about two km to the north of Pashupatinath temple. This colossal Stupa is known by the name of Bouddhanath, the god of wisdom. It is difficult to assign a period to it as some believe that it was built during the reign of either Shiva Deva or Anshu Verma in the 17th century A.D. The design is much like the Swoyambhu stupa, except that the final consists of receding squares instead of circles. Bouddhanath attracts Buddhist pilgrims from all over the world.

    Swoyambhunath, Monkey Temple (World Heritage Site): The Swoyambhunath Stupa crowns a hillock to the west of Kathmandu. A massive white dome surrounded by a 13 stage spire, is one of the most sacred Buddhist sites in Nepal. It is said to be 2000 years old. Its origins are linked to the founding of the Kathmandu Valley by draining the water of the lake by Bodhisattva Manjushree. Swoyambhunath manifested in the lake as a brilliant light emanating from a lotus, Manjushree let the water out of the valley paying homage to Swoyambhu, thus making the valley inhabitable.

    Kathmandu Durbar Square (World Heritage Site): It is the nine-storied palace structure built around 1770 AD. This palace square was a residence to Nepal’s royal family. The house of the living goddess (Kumari), the ferocious Kal Bhairav, the red Monkey God, and hundreds of erotic carvings are a few examples of the sights at the square. All woodcarvings, statues, and architectures in this area are exceptionally fine. Most parts of the palace premises are open for tourists throughout the week during office hours

It is located at the elevation of 2175 m from the sea level. From Nagarkot, you will enjoy the sunrise, sunset and the panoramic view of snow-capped mountains including Mt Everest if good weather permits. This is one of the best places to relax and admire the view. Overnight in hotel

General Information

  • Nepal

    Nepal is a small landlocked country of highly diverse and rich geography, culture, and religions. The mountainous north has eight of the world’s ten highest mountains, including Mount Everest. It contains over 240 peaks more than 20,000 ft (6,096 m) above sea level. The fertile and humid south is heavily urbanized. By some measures, it is a land of different arts and indigenous cultures well preserved since time immemorial.  Hindu and Buddhist shrines found in the country are enriched with wood carving and bronzes, century’s old statues standing along the wayside, and three popular historic cities – Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Patan have preserved their medieval splendor and architectural flavor to date.


    Nepal is located in South Asia between China in the north and India in the south, east, and west. While the total land area is 147,181 sq. km including the water area of the country that is 3,830 sq. km. The geographical coordinates are 28°00′N 84°00′E. Nepal falls in the temperate zone north of the Tropic of Cancer. Nepal’s ecological zones run east to west about 800 km along its Himalayan axis, 150 to 250 km north to south, and are vertically intersected by the river systems. The country can be divided into three main geographical regions: the Himalayan region, mid-hill region, and the Terai region. The highest point in the country is Mt. Everest (8,848 m) while the lowest point is in the Terai plains of Kechana Kalan in Jhapa (60 m). (Source NTB)

    Pre-Trip Meeting

    On arrival in Kathmandu, our staff will meet you at the airport and transfer you to our pre-booked hotel. There won’t be any activity on this day. We will host a pre-trip meeting at the hotel lobby on the 2nd day of your itinerary in the evening. It will be an opportunity for you to meet your trekking guide and introduce each other. The guide will brief you about the trek and check your gear to ensure the smooth running of your trekking trip.

    Small Groups

    Small groups provide a more intimate atmosphere allowing you to get to know your Sherpa guide/Tour Guide better and to develop lifelong friendships. Therefore, the maximum group size for this trek is 16 people. The minimum is 2 people.

    Weather Information

    The main tour season in Nepal begins from early October to mid-May. During this period temperatures at most altitudes are generally comfortable for walking. Daytime temperatures will vary from 15ºC to 35ºC in the Kathmandu Valley to around 10ºC above higher altitudes. Different seasons offer different advantages for trekking.

    Post Monsoon/autumn: Mid-September to November
    This is the main trekking season in Nepal. While trekking in the mountains weather will be sunny and mild with clear mountain views. Nights will be colder with temperatures dropping as low as to minus 10ºC at the highest altitudes.

    Winter: December to end February
    Even it is in cooler conditions this is an ideal time to trek in Nepal. Skies are usually very clear especially in December and the mountain views are at their best. Nights will be very cold with temperatures down to negative 12ºC to negative 20ºC at the highest altitudes but days are pleasant and sunny. The trails are also much less busy at this time of year

    Pre-monsoon/spring: March to May
    Both day and night temperatures will be warmer in general but cloudiness will be occurred up in the afternoons. Seasonal flowers bloom in this season and this is one of the reasons people chose to trek in spring.


    We strongly recommend the use of a neck wallet or money belt while traveling for the safe keeping of your passport, air tickets, cash, and other valuable items. Leave your valuable jewelry at home – you don’t need it while traveling. Many hotels in Nepal have safety deposit boxes, which is the most secure way of storing your valuables. A lock is recommended for securing your luggage

    Jungle Activities

    The Elephant Safari
    This is an excellent way to see the jungle and the animals. You ride on top of the elephant on a square wooden box built to carry people, one in each corner. During the safari, you will approach closer to view some of the world’s rarest animals such as the Great one-horned rhinos, sloth bears, deer, etc. If you are lucky, you will and an elusive tiger in the bushes. You will hear the sounds of insects and birds piercing the air as you ride through open Savannahs and grasslands. The trip will last for about one and a half hours.

    Elephant Breeding Center 
    This is the first elephant breeding center in Asia and is situated only one and a half km from the hotel. Our nature guide will take you there to show how the baby elephants socialize with their parents, how the elephant meals are prepared, and how they eat. He will explain the nature and habits of the elephant. The center is government-owned and its purpose is to raise the young elephant to secure a viable population.

    Nature Walk 
    With our experienced naturalists, you will walk through more specialized habitats. You will become more aware of your surroundings. You will observe a bird’s nest on the high branch where a mother bird is feeding her young; or a songbird hopping from limb to limb, pausing to the air with his clear, melodious calls; or a woodpecker busily searching for insects in the bark crevices.
    A small tree lizard so similar the color of the wood seems to disappear. This protective camouflage helps conceal the lizard from both its prey and the hungry predators that seek it for food. If you are lucky, you may catch a glimpse of a squirrel scampering through the branches.

    While making your nature walk, your observations will not be limited to trees and insects. The passage of wildlife through an area leaves signs for all to see. Each species of animal has its own distinct footprint, and by learning to identify them, you will be able to tell which animals have walked where you are walking. When the deer, wild boar, leopard, and other animals come to drink, their tracks are recorded in the moist soil around the water’s edge. Spending some time in the outdoors on a nature walk you may be surprised at the variety of living things you will encounter.

    Canoe Trip 
    Canoeing at River Rapti is truly a wonderful experience. While floating down the tranquil river your rafting guide will show you some crocodiles basking at the riverbank, various birds along with the shore, and wildlife species that frequently come to drink into the river. The canoeing trip lasts around 45 minutes and you will be dropped at the put-off point to continue other jungle activities.

    Bird Watching 
    The park is a habitat for over  ¬  residential and migratory birds. Our bird specialist guide will help you to view and identify them. Most of them are rare species such as the great pied Hornbill, Bengal Florican, Peregrine Falcon, lesser adjutant, and others like storks. Cormorants, egrets, storks, cranes, jacanas, minivets, ibis, woodpeckers, hawks, osprey, falcons, kestrel, hornbills, floricans, kites, cuckoos, kingfishers, swallows, orioles, babblers are common in sight. A bird watching trip with our nature guide will be a memorable experience

    Culture Dance (Stick Dance) 
    Chitwan is the lowland region of Nepal where many ethnic groups live in harmony. Here, we can encounter their unique culture and traditional customs. Folk dances and musical traditions vary among Nepal’s many ethnic groups. During the Safari trip to Chitwan, different types of local cultural dances are performed by men and women accompanied with drums and guitars in the late evening in the courtyard of the hotel. It would be a fun-filled evening and the Tharu cultural dance program lasts for around 45 minutes.

    Warnings and Dangers

    Malaria, dengue, and kala-azar:
    Mosquito and sand-fly borne diseases are really unpleasant. Take care to be dressed properly and oiled for the occasion.

    There are two bear types in Chitwan, of which the sloth bear is by far the most bad-tempered and dangerous animal in Chitwan. The sloth bear might be encountered while hiking in the jungle, and orderly retreat is the only way out – the bear will not give way and if attacking will seek to claw its perceived opponent.

    As compared to the tiger, the other cats are nothing in terms of danger potential. A tiger, if surprisingly encountered or in a tight corner would be very deadly. Another aspect of tigers is that they may be man-eaters, actually stalking people as potential prey. Guides will know. Don’t go at the jungle’s edge in tiger land during Dusk/Dawn/Darkness.

    The gharial will seek to escape after a mock attack, the mugger crocodile may chance to take a bite out of you if threatened. The bigger ones may be stalkers as well, but the muggers are now few and far between.

    There are a number of venomous snakes in Chitwan, some of them actually thrive nearby humans where there are rats. The main dangerous species are cobras and kraits, but also certain vipers are found. The reticulated python may bite in self-defense if surprised or threatened, but not really feast upon you directly. The good news is that snakes are largely hiding during the tourist season due to the cold but in monsoon time they come out from the hides.

    Bright Clothing:
    You should always avoid wearing bright clothing while visiting Chitwan and Bardia National Parks. Some animals like rhinos are agitated by the bright colors. So, for personal safety, it is best to avoid bright clothing.


    Before joining a tour, we recommend you to take out travel insurance which should cover cancellation, medical expenses, helicopter evacuation, and emergency repatriation. Please send us the following details such as your full name, policy number, and the insurance company’s 24-hour emergency contact number prior to departure. We also strongly recommend that your policy must cover personal liability, flight/trip cancellation, curtailment, and loss of luggage, and personal effects.


    We strongly recommend the use of a neck wallet or money belt while traveling for the safe keeping of your passport, air tickets, cash, and other valuable items. Leave your valuable jewelry at home – you don’t need it while traveling. Many hotels in Nepal have safety deposit boxes, which is the most secure way of storing your valuables. A lock is recommended for securing your luggage

    Rescue/ Evacuations

    Though we hope for the best trip, you sometimes might be in need of rescue or evacuation in case of a serious sickness or a personal prolonged health issue. During such emergency, you will be rescued by a helicopter. You are entirely liable for all the expenses incurred in evacuation services. We request you to make sure when you purchase insurance from your country that your policy must cover these expenses or you should remain prepared to pay or sign on the Helicopter Evacuation Form before you get on the Helicopter.

    Overland Transportation Delay or Halt

    If the main highway between Kathmandu Pokhara & Chitwan areas is blocked by a landslide or any natural calamity during the transfer, in such a situation the extra cost for food and accommodation has to be borne by the clients.


  • Nepal is a land of ancient history, colorful cultures and multi- religions found nowhere else on the planet! There are many festivals and cultural events celebrated throughout the year in the various regions by different Nepalese ethnic groups who follow their own way of religious practice, lifestyle, language, culture, and tradition keeping peace and harmony in society.
