Our Nepal & Bhutan Adventure Tour has been thoughtfully designed and thoroughly researched to bring you a range of once-in-a-lifetime experiences, many of which are entirely exclusive to us.
Follow a well-trodden trail, festooned with colourful prayer flags and the occasional prayer wheel, to reach one of Bhutan's most magnificent sights, Tiger's Nest Monastery, perched 900 metres up the steep side of the spectacular Paro Valley.
Fly to Kathmandu, Nepal's lively capital city. Upon arrival transfer to the hillstation of Nagarkot where the rest of the day is yours to start soaking up the local culture.
Wake early to watch the sun rise over spectacular Himalayan landscapes as you stroll around Nagarkot. The village boasts many walking trails with spectacular views and is also home to flights of butterflies. Later travel to the neighbouring village of Bastola to meet the local people and take a traditional cooking class.
Return to Kathmandu, stopping en route at Bhaktapur, a wonderfully preserved and atmospheric medieval city. Visit the home of a Newari family before wandering to Durbur Square to admire the beautiful architecture. Finally, head to Potters' Square to visit a ceramics workshop and learn traditional pottery skills from a master potter.
As well as being the capital, Kathmandu is Nepal's hub of culture and artistic heritage and a monument to the medieval era. Visit Swayambhunath Temple before driving out to Patan to explore its grand Royal Palace.
Head to the iconic Boudhanath this morning. This huge stupa has dominated Kathmandu's skyline for centuries, its great Buddha eyes surveying the city below. Whilst here, experience a special Lama blessing from the local Tibetan Buddhist monks. Finish the day at Pashupatinath Temple.
Transfer to the airport this morning and fly into the fascinating kingdom of Bhutan. On arrival in Paro, transfer to Thimphu, Bhutan's capital.
The centre of government, religion and commerce in Bhutan, Thimphu is located in a valley with the Wang Chhu River running through the centre of town. Despite being the busiest town in Bhutan it remains the only capital in the world without traffic lights! Explore the city today with time at the National Library, Institute for Zorig Chusum, the Handicrafts Emporium and Folk Heritage Museum, Textile Museum and Trashi Chhoe Dzong.
Depart Thimphu and travel into the countryside. On arrival at the village of Punakha visit Punakha Dzong before hiking through the paddy fields and local villages to Chimi Lhakhang, a temple of fertility.
This morning visit the magnificent temple complex at Sangchhen Dorji Lhuendrup nunnery, before appreciating the incredible views from Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten, said to have been built to promote peace, stability and harmony in the changing world.
Drive to Paro, stopping en route at the Simtokha Dzong, the oldest fortress of the kingdom. Paro is surrounded by some of Bhutan's oldest temples and monasteries and today you'll visit Ta Dzong and Rinpung Dzong.
Taktsang (Tiger's Nest) is Bhutan's most famous monastery, perched on the side of a cliff 900 metres above the Paro Valley. It can only be reached by a moderately challenging hike along a woodland trails - the views along the way are a perfect distraction! Returning to Paro, visit Kyichu Lhakhang.
Fly back to Kathmandu. Take a rickshaw ride through the bustling streets around Thamel's market before sitting down to a delicious farewell meal of traditional food and a Nepalese folk music and dance performance.
Fly to Australia, arriving home later the same or the following day.
