If all the family members are experienced hikers, they might even try Everest Base Camp Trek. But for the beginners senior and junior family. Trekking to the foothills of Everest opts for trekking with parents and kids.
5. Langtang Region Family Trek
Langtang Region, Langtang Valley Trek, and Tamang Heritage Trail are 2 best treks for trekking with family. Both of them are easy to moderate difficult treks.
Which is the best trekking in Langtang Nepal for family Treks ?
If we compare these 2 trails , Langtang valley trek is much easier than Tamang Heritage if you are travelling with kids and aged people. Though Tamang heritage trail is a lower altitude trail than Langtang Valley, because of too many ups and downs it might be hard for small child and aged person.
