Bhutan and Nepal share many similarities. The Himalayas and a rich culture. And both countries border China and India. The one-hour flight from Bhutan to Nepal is via one of the most beautiful flight in the world. Travelers to these two countries delight in the stark differences but also how richly they complement each other. The ancient town of Kathmandu has many UNESCO protected sites of historical and cultural significance. Arriving in Bhutan, visitors find a much slower pace and peaceful environment. Gross National Happiness is practiced in this largely Buddhist country and applied to all governmental decisions. Though small and technically a part of the third world, many would argue that Bhutan is among the most progressive countries in the world. Join a journey to these two countries together in one fantastic itinerary for an unforgettable adventure!
