Signature Nepal & Bhutan

First we explore the beauty and vibrancy of Nepal. Start in Kathmandu and then travel to Nagarkot, Pokhara and Royal Chitwan National Park. Immerse yourself in this stunning country with a trip that includes visits to Buddhist stupas, picturesque towns nestled in the Himalayan foothills, soaring peaks and dense forests and wildlife in National Park.

Then journey to Bhutan. Bhutan is rightly known to the world today as the Last Shangri-La. It was the mighty Himalayas that protected Bhutan from the rest of the world and left this Himalayan jewel blissfully untouched. The Drukpa Kagyupa sect of Mahayana Buddhism provided the essence of a rich culture and fascinating history. The Bhutanese people protected this sacred heritage and unique identity for centuries by choosing to remain in a jealously guarded isolation.

Our trained hosts are seasoned travellers who are with you every step of your tour so that you only have to worry about enjoying yourself and having fun.

Roommate Matching Policy

Roommate matching is done as a courtesy and while most matches result in wonderful friendships, success is not guaranteed. If during the tour you decide you would no longer like to share a room with your roommate you will need to request (and pay for) a single room at all accommodations. This can be shared between the two people in the room if it is a mutual decision. If you are a very light sleeper or snore you may want to consider getting your own single room.
