Size apart, the Himalayas have a towering quality about them. The sheer enormity of their size and splendour makes one speechless. Since saying less and listening more is the hallmark of a true traveller, this will give you a chance to listen to the legends and stories about the two countries, Bhutan and Nepal, at ease. Our tour guides download all the interesting insights to you while you immerse in the grand spectacle of snow-capped peaks.
Wedged in the craggy escarpments, the countries of Bhutan and Nepal are pleasantly slow paced. It must have something to do with the crisp mountain air and the hard but happy life of the mountains. First we take you through Thimphu, the capital city of Bhutan, known for its serene dzongs (monasteries) and make you hike to the precariously cliff-hanging monastery called Tiger’s Nest. After a three days of traversing the country, you’ll known exactly why the nation is one of the few that calculates the Gross Domestic Happiness of its occupants. In Kathmandu, the pace is tuned up with bustling markets, jostle-shove-make your path routine to temples and bus city sqaures. That, in no way, makes Nepal less interesting. If only, it makes it a characterful mosiac of experiences. This is especially true for Patan and Bhaktapur.
With the best of both countries seen, you’re sure to return richer in Inner Peace and a fan of simple things in life.
