Bhutan Cultural Tour specially provides exploration of Bhutanese culture which is unique and different than other countries. Bhutan is an ancient land secluded high in the heart of the vast Himalayas with magical customs and people with deeply held beliefs. Bhutan is a land of Dzongs (fortresses) and monasteries, monks, majestic mountains, unique architectural style, rich heritage and a land of warm-hearted, friendly people. In the Thimphu Paro Tour we visit Bhutan and admire the silence and peace of the Paro valley. The beautiful terraced valley where the medieval town of Paro nestles is home to many of the Bhutan’s oldest temples and Dzongs.

3-country tour of Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet

I did an 18-day tour of these three countries through Adventure Land Tours operated by Chij Gurung in Thamel, Kathamndu. Arrangements done by Mr. Gurung were very good. Sightseeing and accommodations around Kathmandu were fine if you can overlook the traffic and bad roads around the city. Bhutan was exceptional, its a must see destination. And as for Tibet, I wouldn’t recommend anyone to travel to Tibet by road because road conditions are BAD, and it severely lacks in facilities. Lhasa is worth visiting so my sincere advice would be to fly into and out of Lhasa. If any one is looking for a personalized tour, I highly recommend Adventure Land Tours.
