A trek is a life changing experience. The sheer beauty and majesty of the mountains creates an impact stronger than any other experience.
With children, we have noticed that the effect is much deeper and lasts a lifetime.
When a family treks together with their children, the positive effects are greatly magnified. Working together all the camping activities like pitching tents, cooking and green trails they create memories they will always cherish. This time spent meaningfully together, with no distractions, greatly deepens the family bond.
We have several Family Treks in the Himalayas to choose from. Depending on your family’s prior trek experience, fitness and choice of season and trek duration, you can pick your favourite trek to begin this journey.
Who can join
A Family Trek batch consists of several families trekking together. Families who have children between the ages of 8 and 17 can join this trek. Apart from this, children aged between 13 and 17 can join this trek without their parents.
Activities on the trek
– On the first day of the trek, we split the children into teams. The teams are responsible for all camp related activities
and switch roles every other day.
– The Camp set-up team oversees pitching of tents. They make sure pitching and dismantling is done properly. They also help those who need assistance.
– The Green Trails team ensures that everyone is engaged with keeping the trails and campsites clean. They oversee waste segregation. They also ensure that toilet tents and washing areas are set up properly, and are clean.
-The Cooking team assists the cook and helps in serving all meals. They ensure that each trekker eats well, and that no food is wasted.
– The Trek Leader Assistants team assists the Trek Leader in maintaining discipline and punctuality. They also help those who face any difficulty, or need any help while trekking.
