Travelling to the Himalayas is not all about adrenaline sports and physical exertion. Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet are full of beautiful scenery, fascinating ancient cultures, and rich wildlife parks that can be explored in depth without having to include any strenuous activities. These Classic Journey tours concentrate on visiting temples, stupas, and monasteries, and exploring the local life of cities and remote villages. Some short walks and wildlife safaris may also be included, to give you a real taste of these beautiful countries.
Sandwiched between a little time in the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal, this tour features 8 days in Bhutan for a fairly comprehensive tour at a relaxed pace. Highlights include the Paro Dzong and National Museum, a wide range of sites in and around the capital Thimphu, and a beautiful drive across the Dochu La Pass into the Punakha Valley to see the sites there. You also enjoy a spectacular walk up to Taktshang (Tiger's Nest) monastery.
This tour covers Nepal's wildlife, history & people, without any strenuous physical activities.
