A Soulful Journey Among the Cultural & Wildlife Treasures of Two Himalayan Realms
The Kingdom of Bhutan is one of the world’s little-known treasures, where quality
of life is measured in terms of Gross National Happiness, rather than purely material measures. Till recently, the “Land of the Thunder Dragon” has remained in splendid isolation, dedicated to preserving its deep Buddhist traditions and pristine landscapes. A journey among ancient monasteries, Himalayan peaks, glacial rivers and peaceable villages reveals this mythical country’s singular beauty. Geographically diverse Nepal contains the world's highest mountains, subtropical forests and captivating cultures. 4x4 drives reveal Nepal's rich wildlife as we search for sloth bears, leopards, rhinos and expertly camouflaged Bengal tigers that roam wild through jungle lowlands.
PLEASE NOTE: The April 2015 earthquake in Nepal has not affected our itinerary or the quality of the Himalayan experience—we are running this trip as scheduled, and your visit to Nepal is the best way to help the country recover! We hope you'll join us in that effort.
