To simply adore the beauty of nature, Spring and Fall are the best seasons. To be more specific - April, May, June to mid-July, September, October to mid-November are suggested months to make the most out of this trip. During these months, clear views of the surrounding mountains can be seen. If you happen to tour in spring, the blooming flowers with green hill scenery of the surrounding, we bet makes your day quite pleasant.

What is the physical fitness required for this tour?

Not much of walking is required for this tour. You can allocate around 3 Hrs of walking in a day around temples, monuments of other places of interest. Most of the time, you are driven in a comfortable vehicle enjoying the landscape and taking pictures.

Do I need vaccination of any kind ?

Some travelers do take vaccination and some don’t. We highly recommend you to consult your physician on this matter. Having said that, to be on the safe side, we would encourage you to opt for one. 

I speak other language other than English. How would you guide me now ?

Usually, we provide English speaking government-certified guide. If in case you want a guide on your native language, we surely can provide one. You may be charged a little extra for this service though.

Where do I get my drinking water from ?

Government-provided tap water is a common means of cooking or drinking water in cities of Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet. Springwater flowing straight from the Himalayas are used by the major household apart from the cities. We recommend you to carry chlorine tablets to purify the water and suggest drinking boiled water wherever possible. Bottled mineral water is also available in small shops.

Is there any dress code for Heritage Sites, temples ?

We highly recommend you to avoid shorts and wear comfortable clothes that cover you in full at heritage sites, monasteries or temples. 

Usually, in Hindu temples, leather items or accessories are strictly prohibited. Nepalese people also have the customs of opening shoes outside the main door. 

Are there any rules for taking photographs ?

Each and every temples and monastery have different rules regarding pictures. Taking pictures from the surface is generally Okay to most of the places but a big signboard outside the temple or monastery will have a caption if the area is restricted. Our guide will assist you on this one. We also advise taking consent before taking pictures of any person.

Are tips mandatory?

No, not really. Tipping is a practice here and guides, porters, drivers expect it! If you are satisfied with their service and want to encourage them, we would like you to consider their effort.

We are really glad that we took the Himalayan Trekkers' Service. We were a group of 7 people who had a long vacation to spend over something exciting. And Himalayan Trekker had the best trip to offer... "Nepal Bhutan Tibet Tour". In those two weeks, their team had always been proactive about organizing all that was needed. We were able to experience the different cultures of different countries closely. It was all the way the best trip of our lives till now. We will surely join you guys on the next vacation and discover nature's beauty closely.

Lifetime experience of Nepal, Bhutan & Tibet tours in three Week

Me, my family & four others friends were planning a trip to Nepal Bhutan & Tibet since long time. Finally i came across the Adventure Mission Nepal Treks through online and started discussion about the trip. Sonika was so prompt and designed our needs in an organised way and at reasonable price. The beginning started from Kathmandu, then Bhutan and then Tibet and concluded our trip at Kathmandu. These 3 weeks went very smoothly. The guide was so well and provided us all sort of necessary belongings, knowledge about the trip and always looked after our ease and safety. I can't express my experience of the attachment of Bhutanese & Tibetan People, Culture and their smiley attitude . At the end we were so impressed by the expert-ism and dedication of your team that made our dream vacation colorful. I don't have enough words to thank you all.....

I would love to travel mt. Kailash next year as I said you during the dinner and also I would highly recommend to everyone to choose this agency for their professional service.
Thank you once again Sonika for being helpful and kind during those weeks.

Tour of Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet

We did extensive research of touring companies who offer tours of these countries before choosing this Nepalese-based operator. We are extremely happy with our decision. The money which we paid was very well-spent and we are gratified that the funds go entirely locally (as opposed to operators in the U.S. or U.K.). Also, Raj allocates a portion of the funds for charity work within Nepal. The experience was amazing!!! The Himalayas are unsurpassed in magnificence! A perfectly arranged tour of Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. Raj offers years of experience and expertise in arranging your tour as you would like to have it. He gives you personalized arrangements with meticulous attention to detail and is always available even when you are touring outside of Nepal (such as with unexpected illness etc.). The guides and drivers are top notch! We highly recommend Adventure Mission Nepal for either touring and/or trekking. If we were to visit that part of the world we would definitely use him again.

Long overdue EXCELLENT rating and review!

It has been almost 8 months since I returned from my once in a lifetime trip with Adventure Mission Nepal. After spending 3.5 weeks in Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan in April/May of 2017, I arrived home completely and utterly fulfilled, beyond grateful and wonderfully exhausted! As I reflect on my experience I must first acknowledge that it was all made possible by the patient, tireless, thoughtful, informative, flexible Raj - THANK YOU! From the bottom of my heart and the height of my expectations, your expertise, kindness, responsiveness, loyalty and patience is the reason my travel adventures were a success.

We worked together for over a year planning and adjusting my itinerary until it was just right. As a solo female traveler, you understood and met all of my unique needs and always made me feel valued and respected. When you took the time to greet me at the airport personally, I knew that all would be okay. Your team of guides and drivers made me feel exactly the same way. No request was too large or too small. The hotels, tours, education and hospitality were all top notch! Since I have been home I have tried to find the words to describe in this review how outstanding every minute of my experience was and how truly grateful I am. Instead, I give you, Raj, permission to share my name and contact information with anyone who is interested to know more about your company, your team or your services. I also hope to host you or any of the team that was so kind to me, in San Diego, CA one day. My life is a forever changed as a result of my Adventure Mission Nepal trip and the memories are a true gift. Thank you, thank you and I hope our paths cross again! Lisa
