If you have around 9 days of holidays but you are in a dilemma. Don’t worry, you have landed in the right place. Himalayan Trekkers designed this combined trip of Nepal Bhutan Tour. It is basically an amalgam of major attractions of Nepal and Bhutan.

Firstly, Nepal is a place where myths meet reality. You land in Kathmandu(City of temples). You see temples and monuments in every corner of every street. Isn’t that amazing to know, already? Also, you can capture a view of the eye-catching art and architecture in the temples built in the ancestral era. Apart from the cultural monuments, Nepal is blessed in accordance with Mother Nature as well. As soon as you get near to Kathmandu, you immediately see the view of the Snow mountains from the flight itself. Not only that but you see the Mountain View from every city and every village you go to. Also, you can see the hills and mountains with green forests.

You may have already known that, among the 14 tallest mountains, Nepal itself has 8 of the Eight-thousands. So, it is obvious that Nepal will be rich in water resources. Most part of the lands in Nepal is covered with lush green forests. Thus, it is the home for many animals, birds, insects, and butterflies. Additionally, Nepal is even famous for adventure sports like Bungee Jump, Paragliding, rock climbing, sky diving, rafting, and many more.

Likewise, a trip to Bhutan is always full of surprises for foreigners. The main reason beside this is, it remained closed for a very long time in history. Being secured by two of the biggest countries India and China, Bhutan still boasts of is interesting culture and pristine nature which are both well preserved. Situated in the lap of the Himalayas Bhutan has 10 natural heritage sites. Besides that, there are so many Dzongs and Palaces with rich architecture and elaborate history. You can find the unique story behind every dzong (Monastery).
