Let us take you to the 12 days tour around Nepal and Bhutan. This tour, 12 Days of Nepal & Bhutan gives you an opportunity to visit different cultural heritage sites enlisted under UNESCO. Additionally, we take you to the beautiful and traditional village of Khokana, and Bungmati. After Nepal, you visit the Tiger’s Nest Monastery in Bhutan. You go for sightseeing in cities like Paro, Thimpu, Punakha, and Gangtey. During this trip, you get closer to the Himalayas in South Asia.

Firstly, you visit many temples carrying history since the 8th Century in Kathmandu. The reason behind the existence of many temples is because Nepal was initially divided into small states. The Kings used to rule every state. Nonetheless, they even used to compete with other Kings to make their region more beautiful. Therefore, the King ruling the part built many temples. In today’s date, all these temples became a unique and important part. Thus, we can be proud of all the Heritages.

Identical in the landscape, Bhutan also gives you a glimpse of the country’s own distinct culture. You can visit many Dzongs that have their own importance and unique history. The existence of monasteries in almost every part of this country is because of the people having a strong belief in Drugyal Buddhism.

Though Thimpu is its capital city, the country has its International Airport at Paro. This is because of the altitude. Thimphu is located at an altitude of 2334 meters whereas, Paro is at 2195 meters. Thus, comparatively landing and taking-off becomes easier in Paro than in Thimphu.

Bhutan is a small country but the people here have a bigger heart. Apart from that, people keep their environment very clean. Thus, it attracts many tourists, every year from almost every corner of the world. The country set its maximum number of tourist entry to preserve their environment. So, wherever you go to Bhutan, you will see a pollution-free area, which is an eco-friendly country.

Lastly, the Government of Bhutan has set the maximum number of tourist permits and the minimum tax to pay before enting the country.
