Nepal Bhutan Tours - 6 Best Nepal and Bhutan Tours

Nepal and Bhutan Tours opens a window to the majestic and mystical allure of the Himalayas. Celebrated as the Himalayan kingdoms, both Nepal and Bhutan are nestled amongst the towering peaks of this range. Nepal, located in the central part of the Himalayas, boasts eight of the ten highest mountains in the world, including the tallest, Mount Everest. Bhutan, situated in the eastern Himalayas, is home to the highest unclimbed mountain, Gangkhar Puensum. These lands, where ancient traditions thrive amidst breathtaking landscapes, offer a window into a world where the sacred and the majestic converge, inviting travelers to explore their unique blend of culture, religion, and nature.

How to Plan a Nepal and Bhutan Tour?

Begin with a 3-8 day trip in Nepal. Nepal offers a variety of options to travelers. (1) For culture and history enthusiasts, Kathmandu Valley hosts 7 UNESCO World Heritage sites, including historic Durbar Square, ancient temples, and grand palaces. (2) Adventure seekers can head to Pokhara for thrilling trekking routes and stunning mountain views. (3) Wildlife enthusiasts will be drawn to Chitwan National Park for its exciting wildlife encounters and safari experiences. (4) Spiritual seekers may find Lumbini, the birthplace of Buddha, profoundly significant.

Next, spend 3-8 days in Bhutan. Visit the most iconic destinations in the West region (Paro, Thimphu, Punakha). Paro houses the famous Tiger's Nest Monastery and Kyichu Lhakhang. Thimphu, the capital, offers crafts, museums, and a bustling weekend market. Punakha is known for Bhutan’s most beautiful dzong. If time allows, extend your visit to the Central region (Trongsa, Bumthang). Trongsa is celebrated for the Trongsa Dzong, while Bumthang is considered the cultural heart of Bhutan.

  • icon
    2. What travel documents are needed for Nepal Bhutan tour?
    icon

    For Nepal

    Valid Passport: Ensure your passport is valid for at least six months beyond your planned departure date from Nepal.

    Visa:

    Pre-apply Online: You can apply for a Nepali visa before your travel through the official Nepal Immigration website. This process allows you to skip the long queues at the airport.

    Visa on Arrival: Alternatively, you can obtain a Visa on Arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu, or at certain land border crossings. The process involves filling out an application form (available at kiosks at the airport or online) and paying the visa fee, which varies depending on the duration of your stay (15, 30, or 90 days).

    For Bhutan

    Valid Passport: Your passport must be valid for at least six months from your date of entry.

    Tour Booking: Independent travel is not allowed in Bhutan; you must book your trip through a registered Bhutanese tour operator.

    3. How can I travel between Bhutan and Nepal?
    icon

    Begin your journey at Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM) in Kathmandu, which is Nepal's only international airport connecting it with major cities globally. Travelers might find it easier to secure flights to Kathmandu from their home country.

    After visiting Nepal, fly to Paro, Bhutan. Druk Air and Bhutan Airlines operate flights between Kathmandu and Paro, providing the most efficient way to travel between the two countries. The flight time is approximately one hour and offers stunning views of the Himalayas.

  • icon
    4. Can I travel independently in Bhutan and Nepal?
    icon

    In Nepal, independent travel is very much possible and common. Travelers can freely plan their trip, choose their accommodations, and move around the country without the need for a guide or a pre-arranged tour (except in restricted areas).

    Bhutan, on the other hand, has a unique approach to tourism, aimed at preserving its culture and environment through its "High Value, Low Impact" tourism policy.  All international tourists (except citizens of India, Bangladesh, and the Maldives) must travel on a pre-arranged package or guided tour arranged through a licensed Bhutanese tour operator or one of their international partners.  This policy means that independent travel in Bhutan is not allowed for most international visitors.

  • icon
    5. What currencies are used in Nepal and Bhutan?
    icon

    Nepal: The Nepalese Rupee (NPR) is the local currency. USD and other major currencies can be exchanged in cities.

    Bhutan: The Ngultrum (BTN) is Bhutan's currency, which is pegged to the Indian Rupee (INR). INR is also widely accepted in Bhutan.

The adventure of China, Tibet and road to Kathmandu
We decided to do something different for our 25th wedding anniversary and decided upon a tour visiting China (inc Tibet) & ending at Kathmandu, Nepal. We contacted Vincent at Asia Odyssey Travel who assisted us with ensuring that the holiday we wanted was what we got. We made quite a few changes to the standard itinerary, including flying from Xian to Lhasa. We would have loved to have taken the train journey of 31 hours but the smallest berth was for 4 people. This may have been fine but was unwilling to risk being stuck in a small berth with people we would have preferred not to be with. Please research the various options yourself if you take this tour. Think about getting an eSim before you arrive in China and a VPN although we still couldn’t access most emails of social media. We arrived in Beijing and was met by our guide at the airport arrivals and then taken to our first hotel. All our guides were very friendly, spoke good English and were very knowledgeable. Similarly all our drivers were very professional and safe. Driving in China is an interesting experience. All the sites we visited during our tour were amazing. In Beijing, these were Tienanmen square, the forbidden palace, summer palace, Jingshan park and the great wall at Mutianyu which was a 2 hour drive but less touristy and had been renovated. All places were fairly crowded and you will be pushed at times by Chinese tourists - don't expect the same courtesies as you would expect in the west. Also be prepared to have your passport check multiple times at each location. Next stop was Xian which we traveled to via the high speed train. We choose first class seats which was worth the extra cost, There are actually 4 classes of travel - 3rd, 2nd, 1st & business. The train was very smooth and it was difficult to believe that during the journey we were traveling at 348km/h (216mph). The hotel was very comfortable (Ramada) and a step up from the Beijing hotel. In Xian we visited the Terracotta army which encompassed 3 separate sites all in large halls. This was extremely crowded and difficult to get to the railings to take pictures, but we did manage. Later we visited the Drum and bell towers and had a walk on the city wall. Followed by a visit to the Muslim quarter and mosque. If you have been to a middle eastern mosque or bazaar then this is not as grand but still worth a visit, including sampling some local food. Finally in Xian, we visited the Shanxi history museum which was very informative. We did attend two shows recommended by our guide - the silk road and story of the Empress. The silk road was phenomenal - we sat on a giant turntable which revolved around the different stages. This show included volcanoes, volcanoes, wolves in addition to the regular actors. The Empress show included a dumpling dinner with 12 varieties of dumplings. Following a short flight to Lhasa we relaxed at our hotel. We did suffer from altitude sickness but in a few days had acclimatised and were OK without the need for oxygen which was readily available. The next few days were very busy with visits to Jokhang temple, Sera monastery (inc monks debates), Bakhor Street and Potala palace. All these were amazing and we had an excellent guide who explained each place with a good level of detail but didn't overload us. The highlight of the trip was Everest base camp. It was a great drive through the twisting mountain roads with great vistas. The accommodation was a large tent divided into separate bedrooms and a living area. Thankfully they had electric under-blankets as it down to minus 14 inside the tent at night. Be aware that each evening between 10 and 11 they play loud music so don’t expect to sleep before then. Also the toilet facilities are very basic and there is no washing facilities - fortunately we had bought hand wipes with us. We then traveled to Gyirong for our border crossing to Nepal. The number of hotels is limited and are of significantly lower standards than found in western countries. However this was not part of the normal tour. The Chinese side of the border was very impressive with a fairly new imposing building. Expect to have your phone taken off you to see what photographs you have taken. The Nepal side of the border is in essence a shanty town with an unmade road - definitely need a 4x4 vehicle, as on the 7 hour journey to Kathmandu, 4 hours was on unpaved roads full of potholes. The tour company supplied a guide to obtain our Nepal visas, this was a god send as there was a free for all approach at immigration. Overall a great experience enabled by Asia Odyssey travel. Thank you.
