Combine Nepal with Bhutan
Get a double hit of the Himalayas by combining Nepal with the hidden kingdom of Bhutan. Kick off your trip in atmopsheric Kathmandu, wandering between colourful pagodas and valleys scattered with rainbow prayer flags. Next, jet across the snow-capped mountains to Paro, to explore Bhutan. Hike to the incredible Tiger’s Nest monastery, and travel through the sweeping Haa valley. Finally, cross back into Nepal for a safari in the subtropical lowlands of Chitwan National Park.
Combine Nepal with India
This is the ultimate trip through India and Nepal, giving you all of the drama of India’s cities followed by a peaceful breather in the Himalayas. You’ll visit the ‘Pink City’ of Jaipur with its chaotic bazaars and palaces before taking a sunrise trip to the iconic Taj Mahal. Next, you’ll sail down the Ganges at dawn in holy Varanasi, wander through the peaceful riverside town of Orchha and get an eyeful of the erotic temples in Khajuraho. You’ll cross into Nepal to visit the birthplace of the Buddha, experience the misty landscape of Chitwan National Park, get a glimpse into the life of a Tibetan refugee and amble through the narrow medieval streets of the Kathmandu valley.
Combine Nepal with Tibet
A rooftop world of colourful prayer flags fluttering in the wind, gentle monks spinning prayer wheels and vast, endless landscapes, Tibet is filled with beauty. Starting your trip in China, you’ll visit the giant pandas near Chengdu before travelling overland through the Tibetan Himalayas, passing through Everest Base Camp snow-tipped mountains, hidden monasteries and woolly yaks. In Nepal, you’ll try some jungle glamping in the foothills before heading to Kathmandu.
