These high lands settled in the Himalayas are some of the most adventurous destinations in the world as Nepal is a Mix of culture and nature, Bhutan is the Last Shangri-La and Tibet is the roof of the world. This trip is not for everyone. You need to have a lot of guts to go for this trip as it has some of the best things found in and near the Himalayas that stretch from Burma to Afghanistan. The trips start with a flight to Bhutan and then it goes to Nepal and exits from Tibet. The best and must visit places in all three countries are included in the program.
Nepal is a landlocked country in South Asia. It is located mainly in the Himalayas but also includes parts of the Indo-Gangetic Plain. The Tour in Nepal gives you insights into tourism activities where visitors can enjoy diverse cultures, religions, and people. Nepalese people welcome travelers with warm hospitality and traditions to tour in Nepal. Nepal offers primitive city areas, despite the onrush of modernism structures, still, follow traditions that date back hundreds if not a thousand years for tours.
Nepal is a beautiful and fascinating country, and this tour has been designed to give you a taste of many of the country's highlights, without featuring any strenuous trekking or white water rafting activities (these can always be added in if you wish). You'll see Hindu and Buddhist temples and stupas, explore interesting hilltop villages, see spectacular mountain views and enjoy some wildlife safaris in Chitwan National Park.
Tibet, on the lofty Tibetan Plateau on the northern side of the Himalayas, is an autonomous region of China. It's nicknamed the “Roof of the World” for its towering peaks. It shares Mt. Everest with Nepal. Its capital, Lhasa, is the site of hilltop Potala Palace, once the Dalai Lama’s winter home, and Jokhang Temple, Tibet’s spiritual heart, revered for its golden statue of the young Buddha.
Bhutan, a Buddhist kingdom on the Himalayas’ eastern edge, is known for its monasteries, fortresses (or dzongs) and dramatic landscapes that range from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. In the High Himalayas, peaks such as 7,326m Jomolhari are popular trekking destinations. Paro Taktsang monastery (also known as Tiger’s Nest) clings to cliffs above the forested Paro Valley.
