The tiny kingdom of Bhutan is the only carbon-negative nation in this universe. However, the outer world explored the isolated country in the fierce mountain passes in the late 60s.

Since then, the government has become the central focus in the eyes of the world. Let us take you on a glimpse of the Bhutan Tour commencing through Paro Valley.

Essential Information - 12 days Nepal Bhutan Tour Package

Best Season For Travelling to Nepal and Bhutan

While Nepal and Bhutan’s weather conditions are similar, the best time to travel depends on your preference. Both countries have four distinct seasons: spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter.

Spring in Nepal and Bhutan is ideal for touring. It starts at the beginning of March and ends at the end of May. In Nepal, the weather starts to get warm, days are mild, and flowers bloom during the Spring. Like Nepal, the weather gets warmer and pleasant with blossoms and lush greenery, creating the perfect time for traveling in Bhutan.

Summer is the monsoon season in Nepal and Bhutan, which lasts from June to August. However, if you are on a tour exploring activities, you won’t be affected by the monsoon. The weather is sunny, with lush greenery in both countries. So summer is also a favorable season for Nepal and Bhutan tours, even with the changes in rainfall.

Autumn in Nepal and Bhutan, from September to November, is a popular time to visit. The weather is clear, the skies are bright, and temperatures are comfortable, making it perfect for sightseeing, outdoor activities, and cultural experiences.

The winter season in Nepal and Bhutan runs from December to February. Both countries face snowfall above 3000m meters in both. Although winter brings cold temperatures, it is the perfect time to see panoramic mountain views and take tours of Nepal and Bhutan.

While each season is unique, the best time depends on one’s preference. The choice to visit also depends on your tolerance for weather conditions. So before touring, consider the weather conditions first for your safety.

The city of Temples is the first place you will strike upon as soon as you land in the country. The Kathmandu valley between high hills is the center of 7 World Heritage sites enlisted by UNESCO. The city bestows a unique representation of Nepalese Culture and tradition through adept artistic temples, squares, monasteries, stupas, and other outstanding brilliance. The Durbar Square of Kathmandu, Lalitpur, and Bhaktapur, which used to host kings earlier in history, is the central location to sneak back into the Nepalese account.

Himalayan Region in Nepal

Our hearts beat with pride when Nepal is acknowledged as the country of Mount Everest, the tallest peak in the world, standing at an altitude of 8848.86m from sea level. Nirvana land is agglomerated with the top eight highest mountains of the world, all of which lie at an altitude of about 8000m from sea level.

The Snow-Bladed Mountains and pristine landscapes make Nepal an indispensable destination for trekkers worldwide. Among the various treks, the Mount Everest trek, Manaslu trek, and Annapurna trek are supreme adventures that will take you to the country’s Himalayan footholds.

The first National Park of Nepal is recognized for the one-horned rhinoceros, the Royal Bengal Tiger, Gharial Crocodile, and other endangered animals. Besides protecting species, the National Park is noted for recreational activities such as Elephant Back Safari, Jeep Safari, Jungle Walk, and Bird Watching. Similarly, we can be a part of a particular practice of the Tharu Culture in the lowlands of Nepal.

Pokhara in Nepal

Pokhara is a unique destination for millions around the globe. The city, surrounded by lakes, holds an outstanding reputation due to the plethora of desirable locations at the foot of the Himalayas. The ambiance around Pokhara is unmatched. From an eye-catching view of splendid mountains to serene lakes surrounding your shadow, adrenaline-rushing adventures such as paragliding, ultra-light, bungee jumping, and boating will provide an unprecedented experience.

Likewise, in Pokhara, while toiling around the lakeside, we can witness live animated musical sessions, street foods, and fancy restaurants with rooftops. Also, Pokhara is the gateway to various trekking in the Annapurna conservation area. We highly recommend the Upper Mustang trek, Annapurna Base Camp, and the newly open Mardi Himal Base Camp Trekking with Family.

Lumbini in Nepal

The peaceful land of Nepal is the Birthplace of Lord Buddha. The Lord Buddha walked his first steps on the holy ground of Lumbini in 623 B.C. The UNESCO Heritage Site has been symbolic of Buddhist Culture for ages and is considered the most religious place of the most excellent religion, Buddhism.

The sacred area includes ancient archaeological and modern types of Buddhist arts. The monumental attractions are the Maya Devi Temple, where Gautam Buddha spent his childhood, The Sacred Garden, The Ashoka Pillar, The Chinese Buddhist Monastery, and The Lumbini Museum.

Side by side, we can be a part of holy worshipping around all those pilgrimages, including Tilaurakot, while you are traveling in Lumbini.

All international visitors, including American citizens, can need a Bhutan travel visa. Like visitors from other countries, American citizens should apply for their visa before going to Bhutan, as the on-arrival visa is not accessible in Bhutan.

Bhutan is expensive to travel to due to its rules, regulations, and policies. The country’s policy of high-value tourism and its emphasis on sustainable tourism practices make it one of the most expensive countries to travel to.

Bhutan is one of the safest countries in the world, and its crime rate is low. Bhutan is known for being a peaceful country. The government of Bhutan takes measures to ensure a secure and enjoyable travel experience and prioritizes the safety and well-being of tourists.

Foreigners must hire a Bhutanese guide for the Bhutan Tour. Due to Bhutanese government regulations and sustainable tourism policy, it is mandatory to hire a guide. A guide must accompany you from the moment you enter the country until you return.

There is no comparison between Nepal and Bhutan. Both countries are fantastic and have their unique history, cultures, and religions. Thus, deciding between Nepal and Bhutan travel depends on interests, preferences, and the experience they seek.

10 days on the Nepal-Bhutan tour

Just a five-star rating is not enough for the excellent service and care of Boundless Adventure. Yes, my girlfriend and I were under the care of Boundless Adventure for 10 days on the Nepal-Bhutan tour.

My girlfriend was feeling low and wanted a peaceful tour with me. I chose Boundless Adventure at my friend’s suggestion, and I am extremely glad I did. We had a great time in two of the most beautiful countries in the world. We visited Kathmandu Durbar Square, Pashupatinath temple, and Boudhanath stupa and did a helicopter tour of the Everest region in Nepal.

Correspondingly, we visited different historical and cultural sites in Bhutan. Thank you, Boundless Adventure, for our proper care and service throughout the journey and for cheering up my girlfriend.

We had a great experience in Nepal and Bhutan in just one package with Boundless Adventure. The itinerary was well-planned and organized, allowing us to explore the major attractions of Nepal and Bhutan at a comfortable pace. The knowledgeable guides made our journey truly immersive by informing us of the details of both countries. From Kathmandu’s bustling city to Bhutan’s cultural sites, every part of the tour was thrilling and unforgettable.

We ventured into the tour with high hopes and are glad that Boundless Adventure exceeded all my expectations. The logistics management was top-notch, and the tour was genuinely remarkable overall. All thanks to Mr. Dambar and his entire team.

Historical sites of Kathmandu and Bhutan

Our Nepal-Bhutan tour immersed us in two different but equally beautiful places. Our group of 15 people went on a Nepal-Bhutan tour through Boundless Adventure, and we are pleased with their quality service.

From Kathmandu’s cultural and historical sites to the spiritual ambiance of Paro, Trongsa, Thimu, and other parts of Bhutan, every day on the tour was filled with exploration of the culture and beauty of the two countries. Throughout our tour, the accommodation was comfortable, the guide was knowledgeable and had in-depth knowledge of both countries, and everything was well managed. I would love to recommend Boundless Adventure to others with no regrets.
