The Story

Best time to go: October - April
Best for: Longer Journeys, Trekking & Walking, First Time Visitor, Cultural & Immersive

There is something wonderful about combining both Nepal and Bhutan, as although they seem like similar destinations as they are both in the Himalayas, they are both so unique and compliment the other perfectly. It’s like having a cup of tea with biscuits; of course you can do one or the other, but combined on an itinerary, it makes for such an amazing overall experience. In Nepal, you get the best of the wonderful snow-capped views and the chance to trek right under these mighty peaks. Nepal has such a colourful history, and a walk through Kathmandu’s Durbar Squares reveals a story that intrigues everyone. In Bhutan, you see the influences of Tibetan Buddhism; a culture so timeless and preserved that you feel like its an honour to travel through the country.

    Customise Your Itinerary

    We can tweak and change any element of this itinerary and you can depart on any day you want, add nights here and there, and we can fully customise your day-to-day experiences depending on your interests. Here are just a few ideas of many that we can look at and discuss when we come to plan your tailor-made itinerary.

    Idea 1

    If you don't fancy doing the trek and want to just experience the mountain views in Pokhara, then you can just stay at Tiger Mountain Pokhara Lodge or Pavilions which offers better accommodation and the option of more leisurely day walks

    Idea 2

    Add on a side-trip to Lhasa in Tibet for the ultimate Himalayan journey

    Idea 3

    You can easily end your trip in Thailand in one of their amazing beach hotels, or a city-break in Bangkok

    Idea 4

    If you have more time, you can add on a detour to Chitwan National Park in Nepal
