Best of Himalayan Tour
Nepal, Tibet, and Bhutan tour span the three most beautiful nations of South Asia: the land of Everest (8848m) and the birthplace of Buddha–Nepal, the roof of the world–Tibet, and lastly, the last Shangri-La–Bhutan. The tour is ideal for anyone having a Himalayan dream but limited time, thus seeking a thrilling and adventurous exploration through three different nations in a relatively short period of time. The Himalayan tour takes you through the scenic Himalayan nations all the while experiencing the best of the Buddhist culture and landmarks in South Asia.
The 11-days adventure begins with your visits to popular Nepalese landmarks like Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swayambhunath, and Patan Durbar Square. Next, you take a flight to Lhasa, Tibet, that gives any foreigner a feeling of mystique in the air. The following two days, we visit several prominent landmarks of Tibet such as Potala Palace, Sera Monastery, Norbulingka, Drepung Monastery, Jokhang Temple, and Barkhor market. Thereafter, we fly back to Kathmandu, Nepal, and on the same day, we visit three different UNESCO World Heritage sites, namely, Pashupatinath, Boudhanath, and Bhaktapur Durbar Square. We also explore the ancient city of Bhaktapur inhabited mostly by the Newar ethnic group. Next up is a flight to Paro, Bhutan, which offers spectacular views of the Himalayas before you arrive at the picturesque valley of Paro. The following day we drive to Thimpu, and explore the landmarks there, such as King Jigme Dorje Memorial Chorten and Botanical Garden. The next day we drive to Paro and explore several landmarks in the valley. Then we take a flight back to Kathmandu, during which, you can recapture the scenic Himalayas because once is not enough.
The tour has been poised perfectly by our team so that you can get the best out of the majestic Himalayan nations and their rich cultures in a relatively short period of time without having to worry about customs and visa clearances.
