Overview

In Nepal and Bhutan Tours, you can experience the culture, traditions, and lifestyle of both the landlocked countries of Asia, the naturally beautiful Nepal, and the culturally rich Bhutan. Most of the culture of Buddhism, the monasteries, the Gompas, the prayer flags look similar in both countries. But they have their own individuality, they are special in their own ways and carry the significance of their own. 
Nepal and Bhutan Tours begins at Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal where you will pay visits to the UNESCO world heritage sites placed at three beautiful cities of Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur. All these three cities of the medieval era are ancient Newar cities, all three have an ancient palace, the fort, and the temples to make your sightseeing very pleasing and worth it.

The overnight stay at the Nagarkot hills will give you the best view of the sunrise and the sunsets and also allows you to enjoy the sceneries of the Himalayan ranges, the Langtang range, Ganesh Himal, and the Everest ranges seen from afar. Kathmandu valley falls under the 25 destinations to travel in the world. It’s relatively cheaper and one gets to enjoy the beauty of both nature and cultural pilgrimages. After the sightseeing at Kathmandu, the trip takes you to another country similar to Nepal geographically and culturally which is Bhutan.

We fly over to Thimpu, the capital of Bhutan, and drive around for sightseeing. There exists plenty of Stupas, Buddhist Monasteries, Gompas, and many more to view with great cultural importance. You can see the contradiction in the Buddhist cultural heritage in both countries with this trip. Hence, come and have the best experience of your life with this multi-country trip with Odea Services.

Unforgettable Trip

I was so afraid to travel alone but Devi took care of me since my first contact. Nepal and Bhutan are wonderful places. The guides Manish (Nepal), and Sangay (Bhutan), and the drivers are very nice. They did their best to make my trip unforgettable. I didn’t just leave amazing places, I left friends there and I will be back as soon as possible. Best regards from Brazil.
