The three countries, Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet, where you would undertake this Nepal Bhutan Tibet Tour are countries in close proximity of each other sharing common borders, and values through historical time until the present time. But, in this close proximity of time, they have also evolved their own aesthetic, unique, cultural and historical values of their traditions which they showcase in the different monumental structural artifacts built over the period of time. Each having taken a bit from one and to make into a style of building of their own.
Nepal and Bhutan lie in the Himalayan Mountain Range with some of the Highest Mountain Peaks and both being landlocked countries just as Tibet is, but is the highest tableland, better known as a plateau which is also somewhat a cold desert. But, these natural attributes of isolation, have only made them artistically stronger in all aspects of cultural portrayal which they have to display, made over the period of time. This is what this tour of Nepal, Bhutan and Tibetan has four you day after day in the fourteen-day period while you are on it. The tour of these three countries takes you around in Bhutan of the three cities of Thimphu, which is the modern capital, Paro, the show house of the country and to the old capital Punakha and then you fly over to Kathmandu for some sightseeing there and onto the tourist lakeside city, Pokhara and finally it is a Jungle safari in Chitwan before being from all the way over to Lhasa in Tibet for the grand finale of two days cultural sightseeing there. When it’s all over you head back home with memories of these three countries and what has been shown to you as a living memory.
Everything which we do in life has its value, so can be said the same of this Nepal Bhutan Tibet Tour. It gives you much in ways of culture and tradition which is different from what is usually seen elsewhere in the world. When you are in Bhutan, you will be viewing cultural aspects such as Dzongs, which are fortress build in the past to mainly protect itself from Tibetan subjugation, now mainly used as administrative blocks with monasteries and temple within them. Then it is the Lakhangs, actually temples with value to individuals more than deities. There are shrines and monasteries which imbue the value of the Buddhist faith which they hold true to their hearts.
Nepal gives, you the history in the palaces, the temples for its Hindu faith along with the stupas and temple for the Buddhist faith which it follows as well. And, the bounties of its ecosystem in the jungle safari in the tropical jungles which is a wildlife sanctuary. The two days in Lhasa Tibet takes you to places of both historical and cultural value in the visits to the Potala Palace, the Norbulinka Palace, Jokhang Temple being there because of the marriage relationship of a Nepalese and Chinese princess to the same King and the Sera Monastery, with a bit of history to its credit along with the value of spiritual education it imparts and much more which leaves an imprint on the mind long after you have completed the tour with photographs to prove the facts.
Why can’t I enter these countries and do the touring myself?
The two countries, Bhutan and Tibet have strict policies where people wanting to visit the country as tourists have to use a tour operator that is registered with the tourism board in their respective countries, who make set guided plans and itineraries for what is available to be seen. In Nepal, it is also a good practice to use an operator for what you want to do, it falls cheaper. We as a tour operator, dealing in all three countries, see that such a complicated tour pattern goes off smoothly.
