Nepal is the center of Hinduism whereas Bhutan is the land of Mahayana Buddhism. Nepal is known for its ancient temples, monasteries and ethnic diversity. In addition, it has a great diversity of flora and fauna.

As Nepal is a mountainous country, the rivers flowing from streams makes Nepal the 2nd richest country in terms of running freshwater resource. The eye-catching views of the Himalayas, lush green hills and forests are also part of the appeal of Nepal's natural beauty.

Likewise, Bhutan is also a landlocked country between two gigantic countries, India and China. Bhutan is one of the best examples in the world for protecting the environment and ethnicity. In today’s date, it is one of the few countries that contribute nothing to pollute this environment. 

Bhutan, the country, has its own strategic development model & is known for the gross happiness index. The Bhutanese people have preserved Buddhism since time memorial regardless of the size of the country.

One of the noticeable features of Bhutan and the people is, they wear their traditional national dress in their daily lives which shows their inclination towards their culture. We also recommend you try Bhutanese food during your trip – a bit spicy, but very tasty at the same time. 

This combined journey through Nepal and Bhutan can be an eye-opener for any travelers as these two countries are at lap the Himalayas. Finally, a very distinct lifestyle and traditions can be observed. In short, this Nepal Bhutan short Tour gives you an insight into the life of the Nepalese and Bhutanese people, culture and tradition.

Amazing trip

We were lucky enough to visit Nepal and Bhutan with Adventure Mission Nepal. Everything was very well organized. Guides were very knowledgeable and flexible. We arrived one day earlier than expected because of a change in flight, and schedule was immediately re-done last minute to fit one more day.
Organisation of the trip was very smooth, team answered our emails immediately, and everything was very tailor made for us. Once on site, Raj is very responsive and always available to supervise our trip and make sure all our requests are fulfilled.
I would recommend this agency vs any other, especially Western agencies, which are much more expensive, and eventually sub-contract to local agencies like Adventure Mission Nepal.
