1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The scenic flight in the Himalaya's was a highlight. The Jungle Lodge in Chitwan was fantastic and the kids loved it.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

The pollution and smoke haze in April is unfortunately quite thick and spoils the views of beautiful landscapes. The Haze wasn't just in Kathmandu Valley but also in the hills and in Chitwan. Most locals suggest year end (Nov, Dec, Jan) is a clearer time to be in Nepal. We visited many wonderful places however we couldn't see beyond about 10 kilometers due to air pollution on most days. The overall hiking experience was negatively impacted as a result of the haze.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

At all the hotels, we were served by locals and didn't notice any foreign staff. The Chitwan Jungle Lodge in particular has many examples of local community engagement and support and used fresh local products in their kitchen.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Fantastic break - lots of fun and very interesting. Were disappointed by the Haze/pollution and hope to return during a clearer time of year.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Staying with our 3 young (9, 8 & 3) children in a village community homestay. The villagers and local guides were all fantastic!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Don't hesitate, just do it!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, especially in Chitwan where we stayed for 3 days in a Tharu village homestay.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

We spent 8 days there over Christmas (including Christmas day itself in Kathmandu). It will certainly be a Christmas that we and the children will always remember as one of the most exciting.
