From Nepal’s bustling capital, Kathmandu, to the ‘land of the dragon’ – Bhutan, and up into the mountains - this 15-day trekking tour to Bhutan is a trip of extremes. You’ll discover monasteries, enjoy sunrise walks, and visit temples along the way. Hotel accommodation and tour guides are all part of the package, too.
On this 15-day tour, you’ll journey right to the heart of the Himalayas with a stay in Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu. Packed with temples – most dating back to the 17th century, bustling streets and bazaars, this city kicks things off like a baptism of fire. You’ll leave the bright lights and chaotic crowds in favour of Bhutan – the land of the dragon. Prayer flags dot the mountainsides and Buddhist monasteries sit grandly against a majestic mountainous backdrop – and with all this natural beauty, it’s little wonder this place is considered the happiest country in Asia.
On this epic tour into the home of the world’s highest peaks, you’ll seek out Nepal’s holiest Hindu temple – Pashupatinath - which hugs the banks of the Bagmati river in Kathmandu. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site and dates back to the 5th century. Then there’s the old fortress of Drukyel – the place where the Bhutanese defended their country from Tibetan invasions. But perhaps the most impressive of all the sites you’ll see on this tour is the Taktsang monastery. Clinging to a cliff face 1000 metres above Paro Valley and often shrouded in wispy clouds, the Taktsang temple – or tiger’s lair as it’s also known – is an awe-inspiring, mystical place.
You’ll be travelling in a group of people, so it’s probably best if you’re happy in the company of others – and are willing to spend time getting to know them. You’ll be with each other for 15 days, and although you’ll have time alone, most of your days will be filled with new sights, new people and new experiences so an open-mind is a must. Solo travellers, couples, friends, families – it doesn’t matter which category you fall into, as long as you’re happy spending time in groups, and enjoy having your itinerary sorted for you.
