As many people love to combine Bhutan's trip with Nepal, keeping this in mind, Himalayan Trekkers presents you with a unique package where you can get the best out of these two countries.

Everest view trek Nepal and Bhutan Tour is a 3 weeks tour program - a combination of trekking and tour in Nepal and Bhutan. You hike 8 days in the Everest region, followed by a flight to magnificent Bhutan.

Everest View Trek is a shorter version of Everest base camp, nevertheless, providing full beautiful screenplay of panoramic Everest and surrounding snowcapped peaks in the background. Since Sherpa people mostly reside in the mountainous region of Nepal, it is also a perfect way to have some insights into their culture, traditions, food, & dress.

A very fascinating but surprising feature of Sherpa people is that their bodies can withstand almost any extreme in high mountains. Their body has adapted to cold, even during the winter season.

We relish the entire beauty of the Everest region spending a day in Namche Bazar, Khumjung and explore the famous monastery of Tengboche. Tengboche is a famous viewpoint to capture pictures and enjoy the views of most of the dazzling peaks of Everest region. Hence, the name of this package is named as Everest View Trek.

This max altitude for this journey is around 3800m at Thame.

As Kathmandu is one of the few gateways to Bhutan by air, we follow the same route back and make it to our next destination Bhutan.

Bhutan, the land of the thunder dragon, wasn’t open to foreigners until the mid-1970s. There are still many places in Bhutan where foreigners haven't set foot yet. Bhutanese people have set the best example in preserving their natural and cultural heritage. These legacies can be seen on manmade Dzong, Chhortens, palaces, as well as forests, and even preservation of wildlife.

The journey begins in Paro, where Bhutan's only international airport is located. Then it continues to Thimpu, the capital and on to Punakha and Gangtey. You will see the Tiger's Nest Monastery, located by the cliff.
