Horseback Riding Trekking in Everest Region
Age Ranges

  • It is not a good idea to take very young children on a high-altitude trek, because they might not acclimatise well. up to 3000m is ok.
  • Older children of 7 years or more who are fit and have had chance to acclimatise can make great trekking partners — but don’t get too upset when you realise that they are faster than you.
  • It is possible to take young children (1 year plus) on a walking or trekking holiday. We will provide any form of transport such as 1/2 horses, dokos (nepali basket), porters or child carriers.
  • Young children can come along on low altitude treks. Short walking tours or day walks are also an option with young children in child carriers. Remember that you will need to make regular stops and your progress will be a lot slower than walking without children. 
  • For very young children of 0 - 12 months in child carriers, it is probably best to be based at a single location. That way, everything will be ready for you on your return at the end of the day.
  • You can also be more flexible and tailor the length of your walk to suit your child more easily. 
  • The most difficult age to take children walking is probably from 4 to 7 years as they are too old to be carried and too young to walk long distances. In this case it depends upon the child and the parents know them the best to decide  what kind of holiday to book.

Family Walking Equipment

  • Child carriers: birth — 6 months, you should bring

  • Babies who can support their own heads (around 6 months) can travel in a back carrier, which can usually take a child of up to 4 years (we can provide that).
  • There are numerous child carriers available with features such as stands to support the rucksack when loading and unloading and accessories such as sunshades and raincovers.

Tips

  • First, we will plan where you are going, work out the distances. If you are planning to take your family up a mountain, it is essential that you book a guide.
  • Take extra snacks(favourite chips and biscuits etc.) and some candies/chewing gum with you. It is a nice treat for your kids on the way and/or picnic every now and then. Take plenty of water with you. Young children get dehydrated very quickly in warm weather.
  • Ensure that the whole family is well equipped. If the children get blistered feet from poor fitting boots, then they will make sure that this is your last family walking holiday!
  • With younger children in child carriers, make sure that they are protected from the sun with a sunhat and lotion. On cooler days, the wind can chill them very quickly so use layers of clothing with a wind resistant top layer. Make sure that you take regular breaks.
  • Walk together as a close group. Always walk at the pace of the slowest walker.
  • Plan to make regular stops, stop and look at the view, let them play with the animals, paddle in the river or have lunch.
  • Bring playing cards and colourful pens & paper with you, for the afternoons and/or evenings at the lodges.
  • Don't forget your kids favourite cuddly toy for the nights!
