Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan - acquaintance

Three neighboring countries: Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan. First acquaintance

Everyone is used to abbreviating and saying - we are going to the Himalayas to Nepal. And if you speak correctly - to the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal. The republic is located in Asia and borders on two countries. India from West, South and East. And with China (Tibet) in the North. The capital of the republic, a large city - Kathmandu, which is the country's air gate.

Such a warm welcome at the airport

General information for tourists.

The climate in Nepal is almost temperate but also offers some hot months with high humidity and high temperatures. It can be warm or hot for several months of the year, with temperatures constantly above 25 degrees Celsius, sometimes up to 29 degrees. The warmest and rainiest part of the country is the Central Region. The coldest is the Eastern region. 

Nepal is too far from the sea to be directly hit by tropical cyclones, but the remnants of cyclones, which usually come from the Bay of Bengal, can cause heavy rains on the Nepalese plains, as well as snow in the mountains. Heavy snowfalls can trigger avalanches in Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and other areas. To avoid these accidents, it is recommended to check weather forecasts and official warnings. Cyclones usually occur from mid-April to early December, but they are most likely in May-June and October-November. 

Thus - The best time to visit Nepal in general is from November to February to avoid the summer monsoon as well as the heat of the plains which is intense from March to October. If you want to visit Kathmandu and go hiking in the mountains, you can choose spring and autumn, especially in March and April, and from mid-October to mid-November, i.e. periods when both winter cold and mud due to summer rains can be avoided. Autumn is the best period, as it is the least rainy, in addition, the atmosphere is especially transparent, to the point that the snow-capped mountains are visible at a great distance.


Here you can visit tourist sites (excursions), engage in outdoor activities, trekking and climbing.

1. Main touristic objects 

  • Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, is one of the oldest cities in the world. Visit the old part of the city with narrow medieval streets and beautiful little shrines that are centered on the Durbar Square. There are temples with pagodas, stone sculptures, old monasteries and historical monuments and much more.
  • Patan, the ancient name is Lalitpur, which means "the city of beauty". It is located three kilometers southeast of Kathmandu across the Bagmati River. It's really a beautiful city. It is planned in a circular format with Buddhist stupas in each of the four sides of the compass. Everything interesting, as in Kathmandu, is located in Durbar Square. There are many Buddhist monuments, Hindu temples with beautiful bronze gates, guardian deities and beautiful carvings. It is a city of metal craftsmen and is also known as a city of artists.

The serenity of Lake Phewa and the magnificence of the peak of Machapuchare (6977 m) towering behind it with fish trails create an atmosphere of peace and magic. The valley surrounding Pokhara is home to dense forests, raging rivers, clear lakes and world famous views of the Himalayas. You can get here by air and road transport not only from Kathmandu, but also from other parts of the country. From Pokhara there is a magnificent view of Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Machapuchare, the five peaks of Annapurna and other peaks.
  • Gorkha is quite far from Kathmandu. It can be reached in about six hours by road from Kathmandu and four hours from Pokhara. Gokha is the birthplace of King Prithvi Narayan Shah the Great, the founder of modern Nepal. On a hill overlooking the snowy peaks of the Himalayas is a beautiful ancient palace known as the Gorkha Durbar. There are two attractive temples of Gorakhant and Kali in the vicinity. The trip to the Manakaman temple on the way to Gorkha is very pleasant and interesting. The Nepalese believe that the goddess MANAKAMANA grants the wishes of all people, and this is one of the reasons why tourists and locals visit the temple all year round.
  • Lumbini is quite far from Kathmandu. It can be reached by air from Kathmandu to Bhairava or by bus or car (about eight hours). But it's worth it. Here is the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautama. Prince Shakya and the supreme Buddha, the Enlightened One, is a place of pilgrimage for millions of people from all over the world, faithful to all schools of Buddhism. UNESCO lists this site of the Nativity, marked with a memorial column of the Indian Emperor Ashoka, on the World Heritage List. The main attraction of Lumbini is the Sacred Garden of 8 square meters. km, which contains all the treasures of the historical region.

To the west of the Mayadevi Shrine is Nepal's oldest monument, the Ashoka Pillar. Emperor Ashoka erected a column in 249 BC. in commemoration of his pilgrimage to the sacred place. To the south of the pillar we find the sacred pond of Puskarni, where Queen Mayadevi took her bath shortly before the birth of Lord Buddha. The area outside the city is also surrounded by various interesting sights.
  • Temple of Muktinath (Jomsom city). Fairly remote location. There are three options to get to Muktinath from Kathmandu. 1. By plane from Kathmandu via Pokhara to Jomsom, and then you need to walk 7-8 hours via Kagbeni. 2. Arrive (fly) to Pokhara and go trekking, which will take 7-8 days. 3. Order a helicopter tour.

The famous temple of Lord Muktinath is located in the Mustang district, about 18 km northeast of Jomsom at an altitude of about 3749 m above sea level. The main shrine is a pagoda-shaped temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu. 108 gutters are cut into the wall around it, from which holy water flows. The temple is located on a high mountain range and is visited in good weather. It is believed that this temple should be visited after the competitive pilgrimages of the four Dhams in India. This temple is considered sacred by both Hindus and Buddhists. The adjacent Jwala Mai Temple has a spring and an eternal fire powered by natural gas underground. The city of Jomsom is a major center in the Annapurna region. From here you can enjoy the wonderful natural beauty.
  • Chitwan National Park is listed as a UNESCO World (Natural) Heritage Site. It is located at a distance of about 170 km from Kathmandu. It is considered the best in Asia, known for its concentration of wildlife and first-class tourist lodges that provide the opportunity to see animals in their natural habitat. Chitwan, meaning "heart of the jungle", is one of the last surviving examples of the continuous belt of forests and grasslands that once stretched from the Indus River in Pakistan to the Burmese border. The main attraction here is the Chitwan National Park, one of Asia's largest forested regions teeming with wildlife such as the rare great one-horned rhinoceros, several species of deer, sloth bears, leopards, wild boars, freshwater, dolphins, crocodiles, over 350 bird species and the elusive Bengal tiger.

Hooray! We are in Nepal. Can we go independently, freely and wherever we want?
Unfortunately no! In many tourist places (regions), climbing and trekking, you need to obtain permits: TIMS, Entry Permit to: Trek in Conservation Areas or Trek in Restricted areas, etc. For climbing you need to get some documents, for trekking others. Do not be afraid, now you will understand everything.

We start with ASCENTS!!


We start with mountaineering, because it was mountaineering that opened Nepal to the outside world. The struggle between expeditions from different countries for the first ascent to the highest peak in the world (the planet, the Himalayas) - Everest (8848 m) or another eight-thousander, brought crowds of visitors from abroad to Nepal.

To make ascents, you must obtain only* Permit for climbing. This document is issued by the Government of Nepal (Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation), and for some peaks by the Nepal Mountaineering Association (Nepal Mountaineering Association). But! If you pass through protected areas while moving to the summit, you must obtain permits (see below, documents for trekking) - free for climbers.

This is how climbs go

The cost of Permits for climbing allowed vertices depends on:

  • Season. The mountains are open for climbing in all four climbing seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
  • Popularity (Everest, Ama Dablam)
  • Summit heights

General summaries in USD

N - Top (route) - Spring season / Autumn season / Winter - Summer 

1. Everest (regular route) - 11000 / 5500 / 2750
2. Everest (other route) - 10000 / 5000 / 2500
3. Other peaks above 8000 m - 1800 / 900 / 450
4. Peaks in the interval 7501 - 7999 m - 600 / 300 / 150
5. Peaks in the interval 7000 - 7500 m - 500 / 250 / 125
6. Peaks in the interval 6501 - 6999 m - 400 / 200 / 100
7. Peak of Ama Dablam (6812 m) - 400 / 400 / 200
8. Peaks below 6500 m - 250 / 125 / 70 


This is what a Climbing Permit looks like

And you should also take into account that the expedition should include (where necessary) - communications officers, guides, porters, etc.

But that's not all!!
The climbing expedition group (organizers, participants) makes a cash DEPOSIT for garbage disposal.

The expedition organizer is responsible for the destruction or return of waste/garbage from all summit ascents.
The team must:

  • destroy or recycle possible items in front of the relevant authorities of the government of Nepal near the mountain,
  • transport garbage to Kathmandu that cannot be disposed of or recycled on site (must be handed over to an institution or authority as directed by the government).

Responsibility for fulfilling the conditions indirectly lies with the Organizer of expeditions and all participants of the expedition. Each member of the expedition must pay a certain amount to the liaison officer at the beginning of the expedition and receive it back after the expedition is completed. They didn't do it - they didn't receive the deposit.

Below is a table with the latest information:

1. Climbing the peaks of the Himalayas Khumbu and Annapurna:

  • For Everest 8848m USD 4000 or Nepalese Rupees equivalent
  • For other 8001m mountain other than Everest USD 3000 or Nepalese Rupees equivalent
  • For mountains from 7001 m to 8000 m and Ama Dablam mountain USD 2000 or equivalent in Nepalese rupees
  • For a mountain from 6501 m to 7000 m USD 1000 or equivalent in Nepalese rupees
  • For mountain less than 6500m USD 500 or equivalent in Nepalese rupees

2. For climbing peaks in other mountainous areas:

  • For another 8001m high mountain USD 3000 or equivalent in Nepalese rupees
  • For mountains less than 8000m USD 500 or equivalent in Nepalese rupees

3. For trekking peaks (NMA - Nepal Mountaineering Association): USD 500 per permit.

Basically, there are 3 categories of garbage, which are described below:

Well, now about the peaks themselves
Climbing and mountain tourism are the backbone of Nepal's tourism industry. In this regard, the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA), in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation (MoCTCA), initiated the preparation of information about the mountain peaks of Nepal, with the aim of creating an online portal and promoting this information at the national and international level.

And for trekking, for each participant you issue - TIMS CARD (Trekker's Certificate). Nepal's Trekkers' Information Management Systems (TIMS).

And such Permits if you want to visit such areas:

  • Entry Permit to Trek in Conservation Areas
  • Entry Permit to Trek in Restricted areas  


Trekking is always great!

And so, what is it?

The Trekker Information Management System has been jointly implemented by the Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) and the Trekking Agencies Association of Nepal (TAAN) to ensure the safety of trekkers and their control of illegal trekking routes. Tracker information is stored in a computerized database management system. It is useful for the safety of trekkers, assisting in search and rescue for tourists in case of natural disasters and other accidents through the reliable information service. The system contains personal data of trekkers, hiking area, hiking routes, service agencies, duration, etc. TIMS cards must be received by both FIT - Free Individual Trekker and group trekkers using the services of state-authorized travel agencies.

Attention! Trekkers in Nepal are allowed to travel as a (FIT) free individual trekker or in a group of varying sizes. However, there are certain trekking areas known as "Restricted Zones" which are strictly regulated by the Nepalese government and therefore FIT trekking in these areas is strictly prohibited. Hiking in these areas is only allowed in a group and with permission from the Immigration Department. 

Therefore, all interested travelers should contact authorized travel agencies, who can then apply for permits (on behalf of trekkers) with the Department of Immigration after completing all the necessary formalities.

  • Trekkers must travel in a group (minimum two people) accompanied by a licensed guide!!!
  • An individual trekker cannot apply for a permit.

There are different rates (trekking permit fees) applicable to different permit routes.

  • Permit fees are listed in US dollars but payable in Nepalese Rupees.
  • A trekking permit is not issued after the expiration of the visa.

Therefore, trekkers must have a valid visa for a sufficient number of days to cover their trekking schedule.

Conditions that trekkers must follow

  • Trekkers must respect local customs and traditions and must not engage in any activity that goes against the established norms and culture of the community.
  • Individual trekking in the Restricted Zones is strictly prohibited. There must be at least two tourists.
  • Daily stipend, protective equipment and appropriate clothing, accident insurance must be provided to the Nepalese citizen accompanying the tour group as guide/porter/any other supporting role.
  • Trekkers must trek only on the indicated or marked route in accordance with the trekking permit. They are not allowed to change the route. Or the concerned trekking agency/guide accompanying the group should not allow the trekkers to change the route.
  • Trekkers must follow the instructions given by authorized officials in the trekking area (restricted area).
  • Expedition permit climbers must also obtain a trekking permit if they need to pass through restricted areas to reach the summit. In this case, they do not need to pay for a (trekking) permit.

Authorized agencies can apply for a trekking permit along with the following documents.

  • Online application (trackers). Link to apply for a trekking permit
  • Copy of the passport
  • A copy of a valid visa sufficient to cover the days of the hike.
  • Named lists of trekkers
  • Program - Hike Schedule
  • Agency letter of guarantee
  • Agency Agreement
  • Tax agency and trekking agency certificate
  • Documents regarding the insurance of trekkers (foreigners) and Nepalese personnel accompanying trekkers
  • License of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Civil Aviation for the implementation of the tourism business.
  • License issued by Nepal Rastra Bank allowing foreign exchange.
  • Trekking program
  • Certificate of registration of a permanent account number
  • Bank payment voucher (fees) for permits

Attention! The TIMS card is required for hiking in all trekking areas of the country. However, TIMS cards are not required* (*debatable) for the following:

  • Expedition members* with mountaineering permits issued by the government and the Nepal Mountaineering Association.
  • Visitors* to controlled areas holding permits issued by the Department of Immigration.
  • Foreign guests invited by the government of Nepal
  • Representatives of various diplomatic missions present in the country who have official letters and travel at their own risk.
  • Visitors on certain business trips recommended by the relevant government department(s)
  • Foreign citizens with a residence permit.




This is what TIMS and other resolutions look like

We move on.

Entry Permit to Trek in Conservation Areas
Protected areas are nature reserves, national parks and the only hunting reserve. Everyone has their own mode of issuing permits (permits).

But! In the only reserve - Annapurna, the permit is issued exclusively at the NTB offices in Kathmandu and Pokhara. For all other protected areas, permits can be obtained locally. In addition to Annapurna, NTB's office in Kathmandu can issue entry permits for Langtang and Sagarmatha (Everest) National Parks. Therefore, we recommend that you obtain the permission you need in addition to TIMS at this office.

Where and how to get these permits?

  • Free solo trekkers can obtain TIMS cards at the TIMS checkpoint in Pokhara and Nepal Tourism Board offices in Kathmandu and Pokhara after completing the TIMS application form.
  • Organized trekkers can get TIMS cards from the TAAN secretariat in Maligaun, the TAAN TIMS counter in Saatgumti, Thamel and the TAAN secretariat Pokhara in Pokhara.

The TIMS card is required for hiking in all trekking areas of the country. However, TIMS cards are not required for the following (*some points in dispute):

  • * Expeditioners with mountaineering permits issued by the government and the Nepal Mountaineering Association.
  • *Visitors to airside areas holding permits issued by the Department of Immigration.
  • Foreign guests invited by the government of Nepal
  • Representatives of various diplomatic missions present in the country who have official letters and travel at their own risk.
  • Visitors on certain business trips recommended by the relevant government department
  • Foreign citizens with a residence permit.

Opening hours:

  • The TIMS counter at the TAAN secretariat is open as normal (10:00 am to 5:00 pm) and during the winter months (November 1 to January 31) is open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Attention! Closed on Saturdays and public holidays.
  • The TIMS counter at Saatgumti, Thamel opens at 7:00 and closes at 18:00. Attention! On Saturdays and public holidays, the reception is open from 10:00 to 13:00.
  • The Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) operates according to the government's business hours, i.e. from 10:00 to 17:00. Attention! Closed on Saturdays and public holidays.

Required documents:

  • Copy of the passport
  • Two passport size photographs (PP)
  • Detailed route


One of the most difficult, in terms of the variety of permits, is trekking around Manaslu. You start in the Manaslu zone, visit the Tsum valley, and then enter the Annapurna zone.

  • Usually local agencies write like this: Special Trekking permit, Normal Permit, Tims, & all documents of Manaslu Trekking

1) MCA permit (Manaslu Conservation Area)
2) Gorkha Tsum Valley Area Permission
3) Gorkha Manaslu Area Permission
4) ACAP Permit (Annapurna Conservation Area)
5) And here it is, the controversial TIMS

The most popular trekking routes have traditionally been the Everest, Annapurna and Langtang regions. But now Kangchenjunga in the far east and Dolpo in the northwest of Nepal are becoming increasingly popular destinations. More recently, the government has developed several heritage trails in different parts of the country where you can combine hiking with getting to know the culture of local communities. And for those with the time and stamina, there is the Great Himalayan Trail, stretching 1,700 km from Kanchenjunga in the east to Humla in the west, which will take months to complete.

Attention! Safety, load capacity, height.
First of all, this concerns the tour to Everest Base Camp.
The maximum takeoff weight of a helicopter when taking off from Kathmandu is 450 kg and this is valid until landing at Syangboche (Everest View Hotel).
However, further when landing at:

Pheriche (4370 m) - 420 kg,
Kalapattar (5644 m) - only 220 kg!!
In this regard, all flight participants (4-5 people in a group) cannot be delivered to Kalapattar at the same time. The helicopter must make an additional flight from Ferice to Kalapattar (two flights from Pheriche).


Well, where is the information on Tibet and Bhutan?


As noted earlier, Tibet (Tibet Autonomous Region) is located on the northern side of Nepal. It is currently in China. Entry into this area is regulated by the PRC. The historical capital of Tibet is the city of Lhasa (4200 m).
Everyone knows about:

  • Tibetan medicine
  • Tibetan Buddhism
  • Tibetan calendar and astrology

This is a high-mountain region (Himalayas), the average height is about 4000 meters. There are 9 eight-thousanders here. Eight in the south on the border with Nepal, including Everest (8848 m). And one peak Shishabangma (8027 m) in the depths of the region. Separately, we single out the peak of Kailash (6638 m), a sacred mountain, a place of pilgrimage. It is called - the abode of Lord Shiva, "Navel of the earth" or "Precious snow peak". Climbing to the top - FORBIDDEN!!! There is also the Tibetan plateau and many mountain lakes, the highest at an altitude of 4500 meters (Yamjo-Yumtso - “turquoise lake”). The climate is typical for mountains. The average annual temperature is from -5 (winter time) to +15 C (summer season).

There are four tourist destinations in Tibet:

  • pilgrimage tours,
  • excursion tours,
  • trekking tours,
  • climbing  

1. Mountaineering
As noted above, there are 9 eight-thousanders here. But! In fact, ascents are made only to 3 (three) peaks:

  • Everest from the north
  • Cho Oyu from the north
  • Shishabangma (8027 m), which is completely located in Tibet.

All peaks are very popular due to the nature of the routes and service. Climbing permits can be obtained in China or in Nepal (Kathmandu). A good new alpine road leads from Nepal to Tibet, and you can also fly by plane.

2. Trekking, excursions, pilgrimages
All this can be seen in four basic tours (the rest are variations): 

  • Tour to Lhasa (7 days from Nepal). The city of Lhasa (4200 m) is the traditional capital of Tibet, one of the highest mountain cities in the world. It is the traditional residence of the Dalai Lama and the Potala and Norbulingka palaces. In Tibetan Buddhism, this is the most sacred center of Tibet. More than 200 thousand people live in the city. You will have a 4 day tour of Lhasa. It will expand the boundaries of conventional travel and give you a deep knowledge of the lands, culture and people of Tibet. We create authentic cultural connections that allow you to experience bounty on the roof of the world. Instead of just seeing one monastery after another. Let us help you discover the hidden gems of Tibet on a new itinerary. 
  • Combined tour: Lhasa - Everest Base Camp (11 days from Nepal). On this tour you will have a lot of interesting things. Two flights Kathmandu-Lhasa-Kathmandu. We start with an acquaintance with Lhasa, Tibet, with the highest mountain plateau in the world. Amazingly beautiful rocks, cascades and canyons, slightly hidden by images, bring you closer to Shangri-La Tibet. Here you feel like a part of a unique culture, the rich fabric of which is woven with legends, myths, rituals and holidays. Next, we will climb to the top of Kamba La (4700 m) with a majestic view of Mount Nojin Kangtsang (7193 m) and see Yamjo Yumtso Lake and visit Everest Base Camp at the foot of the North Face. The final part of the tour is a flight through the majestic Himalayas, offering you the long-awaited breathtaking view of the Himalayan ranges, including Mount Everest (8,848m), on a one-hour trans-Himalayan flight on the way back from Lhasa to Kathmandu. The most interesting thing is that you will remember this tour for the rest of your life. You will admire the Himalayas from three dimensions - from the south, from the north of the sky. And it promises you a vacation that is more than a dream - a journey full of adventure and discovery.
  • Combined tour: Lhasa - Gyangtse - Shigatse - Namasto Lake (10 days from Nepal). You will have two flights Kathmandu-Lhasa-Kathmandu. We start with an acquaintance with Lhasa, Tibet, with the highest mountain plateau in the world. Amazingly beautiful rocks, cascades and canyons, slightly hidden by images, bring you closer to Shangri-La of Tibet. Here you feel like a part of a unique culture, the rich fabric of which is woven with legends, myths, rituals and holidays. Next, we will climb to the top of Kamba-La (4700 m) with a majestic view of Mount Nojin Kangtsang (7193 m) and see Lake Yamjo-Yumtso. And also Tashihunpo Monastery with a massive and colorful Tanka wall, the tombs of past Panchen Lamas and Lake Namasto. Lake Namasto is the second largest salt lake in China and one of the beautiful natural tourist attractions in Tibet. Its length is 70 km, width 30 km, depth 35 km. This lake is one of the stunning images of Tibet. On the way back to Lhasa, we bathe in the hot springs of Yampachen. Yampachen is a lush green valley surrounded by nomad tents. We will also visit Tsurphu Monastery, which is located 65 km west of Lhasa. Tsurphu is a branch of the Karmapa and also a follower of the Kagyupa sect in Tibetan Buddhism. Tsurphu was the third monastery of the Karmapa and after the death of the Karmapa he became the head of all the monasteries.
  • Combined tour: Lhasa - Everest Base Camp - Manasarovar lake - trekking around Kailash (16 days from Nepal). This is one of the best and most popular tours in Tibet, trekking around Mount Kailash. First 4 days in Lhasa area. You will visit Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Sera Monastery and Barkhor Street. The next location is Everest Base Camp on the north side. It offers magnificent views of the Tibetan Himalayas, lakes, legendary monasteries and the top of the world Everest. In conclusion, you will have trekking around the sacred mountain Kailash and the famous "sacred" lake Manasarovar.

Manasarovar. The sacred lake Manasarovar is located at an altitude of 4590 meters above sea level. According to Hindu mythology, Lake Manasarovar is the personification of purity. And those people who drink water from the lake, after death, will go to the Abode of Lord Shiva. Also, people bring water in a bottle for relatives and friends. They believe that bathing in Manasarovar will relieve pain and suffering after death. It is believed that he was cleansed of all his sins, committed even in a hundred lifetimes.

Mount Kailash. Mount Kailash dominates the north of the Himalayan barrier. It has a breathtaking view and is the most sacred place of pilgrimage for Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and Bon Pos. The Tibetans consider this mountain to be a manifestation of Mount Meru, "the navel of the earth." There is also a belief that the founder of the Bon religion, Tonpa Shenrab, descended from heaven here. Hindus as the abode of Lord Shiva, Buddhists as the abode of Samvara and Jains as a sacred place where their prophet Rishaba attained spiritual enlightenment. Mount Kailash or Kang Rinpoche (“jeweled snow peak,” as the Tibetans call it) is awe-inspiring with its four sheer walls, characteristic snow-capped peak and valleys. Four great rivers of Asia originate from here: Karnali, Indus, Sutlej and Brahmaputra (Tsangpo). Three-day trek (Parikrama or Kora) around Mount Kailash via Drolma La Pass (5610 m) clockwise for Buddhists and Hindus and anti-clockwise for followers of the ancient religion Bon erases the sins of all life. Then, to complete the pilgrimage to Kailash, one should take a bath in the sacred lake Manasarovar. On the way to Mount Kailash across the windswept Tibetan plateau, you will see cliff-top monasteries, wild-looking but hardy and hospitable Tibetans, caravans of yaks traveling through snow-covered passes, and the great peaks of the Himalayas with herds grazing in the foreground, yak-skin tents and a sparkling turquoise lake.

We are glad to see you in our programs in Tibet.



The Kingdom of Bhutan does not share a common border with Nepal. It borders on Tibet and India. But it is closely connected with the history of Buddhism. Here you will find a calm environment, lush greenery and mountains. You should definitely stroll through the streets of Thimphu and don't forget to visit the famous Tashicho Dzong and the Dordenma Buddha statue. This magical kingdom is a mixture of ancient values with a modicum of modernity.

We recommend 3 (three) programs to get to know Bhutan:

  • Tiger's Nest Monastery (10 days from Nepal). This monastery, also known as Taktsang, is one of the finest sacred sites in Bhutan, located on mountain hills at an altitude of 3048 meters. Taktsang is the birthplace of Bhutanese Buddhism. Guru Rimpoche flew to this place from Tibet on the back of a Tigress, who was the incarnation of his divine consort Yeshe Tsogyal. During the Bhutan Tiger's Nest Tour, we will walk 45 minutes to the Tiger's Nest Monastery by climbing difficult steps. During the hiking period, enjoy the views and the forest with prayer flags. The best view is from the top of Taktsang. Tiger's Nest Monastery is a stunning representation of the Bhutanese forestlands and historic Taktsang Monastery with a classic Buddhist standard of living. You will visit: Chorten Memorial (Stupa), National Library, Folk Medicine Institute, Textile Museum, Folk Heritage Museum, Bhutan Traditional Handmade Paper Factory, Dechen Monastic School, General Post Office and many other interesting places.
  • "Land of the Thunder Dragon" (16 days from Nepal). Bhutan offers an exciting introduction to Buddhist culture. Untouched beauty and the classical Buddhist way of life have been preserved here.

We find ourselves in the picturesque Paro Valley and begin our hike to the famous Tiger's Nest Monastery (Taktsang). Next, we will visit Thimpu, a unique capital that combines tradition and modernity, and we will cross the picturesque Dochu La pass to the subtropical Punakha and Wangdi valleys. In these places we will visit the ancient capital of Bhutan, the medieval city - Wangdi Dzong, after which we will return to Paro and then go back.
