Day 2 Kathmandu Sightseeing tour and Flight to Pokhara

Prepare yourself for a morning of sightseeing in Kathmandu city. Our first destination is the famous ‘Monkey Temple,’ known for its abundant population of monkeys. This serene Buddhist monastery is situated atop a hill and offers a panoramic view of the entire valley.

Next, we will visit the sacred Pashupatinath Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva. If time permits, we will also explore the iconic Boudhanath Stupa before returning to our hotel to rest. Then, we will make our way to Kathmandu Durbar Square, the historic town center that once housed the kings of Nepal.

In the late afternoon or early evening, we will head to the domestic airport of Kathmandu and board a plane to Pokhara, which is just a 25-minute flight. During the flight, you will be treated to breathtaking views of the snow-capped Himalayan Mountains. Upon arrival in Pokhara, you will be welcomed by the stunning beauty of Phewa Lake. Later, we will enjoy dinner at your hotel and take a leisurely stroll along the streets by the Lakeside at night.

Day 3 Full-day sightseeing at Pokhara

On the third day, we woke up early to start our exploration of the Pokhara valley. Our first stop was the stunning Sarangkot, where we enjoyed the sunrise over the magnificent peaks of the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and Manaslu ranges. The mountain and lake view from here is unparalleled and a true feast for the eyes. After spending some time soaking up the stunning scenery, we drove back to our hotel.


In mid-day, we commenced our sightseeing tour, starting with a boat ride on Phewa Lake to Tal Bahari Temple. The mountains’ reflection in the tranquil lake is absolutely breathtaking. We then drove to Bindabasini Temple, Seti River Gorge, Mahendra Cave, and Bat Cave, where the natural formations are reminiscent of scenes from a wild movie. We continued driving to the renowned mountain museum before visiting Devi’s fall.


Our final destination for the day was the Peace Pagoda, situated atop the valley. The small white stupa offers panoramic views of the valley shimmering in the beautiful light. We then drove back to the hotel for a delicious dinner.

Day 4 Early morning flight back to Kathmandu and Sightseeing at Bhaktapur

After a leisurely breakfast at the hotel, you will have some free time in the morning to explore more sights and tourist shops in Pokhara. Later in the day, we will drive to Pokhara airport for the exciting flight back to Kathmandu, where you can relax in your hotel room.

In the evening, we will continue our exploration of Kathmandu Valley by visiting the remaining destinations, including Patan Durbar Square, a magnificent artistic masterpiece adorned with ancient palaces, temples, and shrines. After the sightseeing tour, we will return to the hotel for dinner, where you can enjoy the rest of your evening according to your preference.

Day 5 Kathmandu to Lhasa Flight

Today, we will depart from Nepal and fly to Tibet, a distinct region of China that serves as the cultural hub for Buddhists. Upon arrival at the airport, you will be greeted by a local guide who will accompany you to your hotel. During the short drive to the hotel in a private vehicle, you can take in the sights of Lasha. After some rest, you can explore the local area surrounding your hotel.

As we gain a significant amount of altitude during the flight, it is crucial to acclimate yourself to the decreasing air pressure. We recommend staying hydrated and enjoying the delicious Tibetan food, but it is best to avoid alcoholic beverages. Take the opportunity to interact with the locals and avoid walking alone.

Day 6 Sightseeing In Lhasa

We will wake up early this morning to have breakfast before embarking on a journey to explore the many sights in Lhasa, which is situated in the shadow of the mighty Himalayas. Our first destination is the stunning Norbulingka, the summer palace of the Dalai Lama during ancient times. Afterward, we will drive a few kilometers towards the western parts of Lhasa to reach the revered Drepung Monastery, which translates to “prosperity” and has been one of the most important Buddhist monasteries for centuries.

Later in the day, we will continue our exploration by driving to another famous monastery in Lhasa, Sera Monastery, renowned for its “Buddhism Debating” in the evenings. After the monastery visit, you will have the remainder of the evening to explore more of the city and immerse yourself in the local culture.

Day 7 Sightseeing in Lhasa

On this day as well we are spending our time in sightseeing. Lhasa offers a captivating blend of ancient history, vibrant culture, and breathtaking landscapes. Visit the iconic Potala Palace, explore bustling Barkhor Street, and experience the serenity of Jokhang Temple. Don’t miss the beauty of Yamdrok Lake. Expect a journey that immerses you in Tibetan culture and leaves you in awe.

Day 8 Lhasa to Gyantse to Shigatse

Leaving behind the bustling city of Lhasa, we will drive through the verdant farmland of Yongchu Valley, passing across the Gangbala pass (5030m) and eventually arriving at Tibet’s traditional town of Gyantse. After exploring the town, we will proceed to the scenic Shigatse Valley, encountering many picturesque valleys on the way.

Among the many attractions, two stands out- the serene Yamdrok-Tso Lake and the Kubum Monastery in Gyantse. Yamdrok-Tso Lake has a unique shape resembling a coiling scorpion, and its dark blue waters are a sight to behold. Kubum Monastery is equally spectacular, featuring a 35-meter high Chorten with decorative stripes and a crown-like golden dome.

Eventually, we will arrive at the town of Shigatse, nestled in a breathtaking mountain valley and in close proximity to the majestic Mount Everest.

Day 9 Drive from Shigatse to Tibet Side Everest

Today marks one of the most significant days of our journey. We will start the morning with a visit to Tashilhunpo Monastery, the residence of the Panchen Lama. After breakfast, we will depart from Shigatse and make our way towards Lhatse, a picturesque village where we will stop for lunch. Despite gaining altitude, you will feel comfortable inside our luxurious vehicle.

Following lunch, we will pass through the Tsola Pass and Gyatso La Pass before entering the Mt. Everest National Nature Reserve. The breathtaking views become even more stunning from the Gawula Pass (5198m). After a brief stop, we will continue along the new zigzag road to the North Everest Base Camp, where you will be greeted with a magnificent sight of the towering Mount Everest.

Spending time at the base of the world’s tallest mountain is a privilege and witnessing the golden sunset at Everest’s peak is undoubtedly the most beautiful sight you will see on this journey. Take your time to capture the stunning scenery and save the memories in your camera.

Day 10 Drive from Everest to Gyirong Town

After a wonderful experience at the Everest Base Camp, it is time to begin our descent. We will wake up early to witness the magnificent sunrise from Rongbuk Monastery, where the sun’s rays over the giant white pyramid of Everest will be truly awe-inspiring.

Saying goodbye to the majestic Everest, we will board our vehicle and embark on a long 8-hour drive to Gyirong Town. The journey will be filled with spectacular views of the surrounding landscapes, and on clear days, we can catch glimpses of the stunning Shishapangma Peak.

As we arrive in the town of Gyirong, we can take in the gorgeous view of Pekutso Lake and explore the small yet culturally rich town. Spend a fabulous night in a guesthouse and immerse yourself in the Tibetan lifestyle.

Day 11 Drive from Gyirong Town to Kathmandu

Be prepared for another long day as we make our way towards the capital city of Kathmandu. The Gyirong Port is located just 25 minutes away from the China-Nepal border, where we will complete some customs formalities. The road to Kathmandu is approximately 160 km from the Gyirong Port and although it may not be as smooth as Tibet’s, the drive is still relatively comfortable, taking around 6 hours.

Upon arrival in Kathmandu, we will check into our hotel and there are no planned activities for the day. You can take the evening to relax, reflect on your journey so far, and socialize with fellow travelers. We will enjoy dinner before retiring early for a good night’s rest.

Day 12 Early morning flight from Kathmandu to Paro and the drive to Thimphu

We began the day with a relaxed breakfast in our hotel before embarking on a drive to the international airport for our flight to Paro. The mountain flight promises to be thrilling, providing yet another spectacular experience of a lifetime. As we fly from the warmth of the Indian plains towards the hills of Bhutan, the views from the aircraft windows are breathtaking, with a series of the world’s highest peaks that are unforgettable.

Descending below the mountains towards the hills, the approaching valley of Paro, with its alpine forests and farmhouses, will be a delightful sight. Upon touching down at the runway, the serene ambiance of the valley greets us, and our representative meets us at the airport, transferring us to a restaurant in Paro where we savor the delicious Bhutanese delicacies for lunch.

Following our meal, we embark on an exciting drive to Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan, which will surprise and delight us with its unique character. After checking into our hotel and enjoying some personal time, we take a leisurely stroll to the market in the evening, a great opportunity to admire the beauty of Thimphu.

Day 13 Sightseeing at Thimpu and then drive to Punakha

In the morning, we set out to visit the King’s Memorial Chorten, a giant structure that reflects the life of the third Bhutanese king, Jigme Dorji Wangchuk. Next, we drive to the top of the hills, where we can witness the Buddha Dordenma shrine, a colossal statue of Buddha situated on the hilltop overlooking the Thimphu valley. Our final attraction in Thimpu is the Tashichho Dzong, an impressive monastery and fortress that houses the government secretariat, featuring white-washed buildings and triple-tiered golden roofs.

After exploring Thimpu, we begin our drive to our final destination for the day, stopping at the Dochula Pass on the way to marvel at the stunning views of the surrounding area. From the pass, we’ll enjoy panoramic mountain views, and the 108 memorial Chortens dedicated to soldiers who died for the country will stir up emotions. After this stop, we continue driving to Punakha, where we check into the hotel and enjoy a sumptuous dinner before retiring for the night.

Day 14 Sightseeing at Punakha and then drive to Paro

On the third day of our Bhutan tour, we explored Punakha, which used to be the seat of the Bhutanese government before it was moved to Thimphu. Our first destination was the stunning Punakha Dzong, also known as the palace of great happiness or bliss. This dzong is one of the most beautiful examples of classic Bhutanese architecture, situated in a picturesque location between the Pho Chhu and Mo Chhu rivers.

Next, we took a walk through the paddy fields to reach Chimi Lhakhang, also called the Fertility Temple, dedicated to the “Divine Madman.” The locals believe that visiting this temple blesses women with fertility, and it is considered to be of great significance.

After spending a few wonderful hours in Punakha, we began our return journey to Paro, which takes about three hours, winding along the roads of Bhutan. We took our time and stopped at several viewpoints along the way to enjoy the breathtaking scenery.

Day 15 Hike to Tiger’s Nest

After a satisfying breakfast in our hotel in Paro, we embark on a trek to the Taktsang Monastery, also known as the Tiger’s Nest. It’s a sacred site in Bhutan as the Second Buddha, Padmasambhava, is believed to have meditated on a tigress’s back there. The monastery is built into a cliff and is a significant pilgrimage destination for Buddhists.

We drive for around 20 minutes to reach the trailhead before beginning our hike, which takes two to three hours to reach the monastery. To avoid the strenuous uphill climb, we have the option to hire a pony to carry us halfway, after which we need to walk the remaining path on foot.

The trail takes us through a dense forest filled with pine trees, offering us our first trekking experience of the trip. When we reach the top, the magnificent views make the climb worthwhile, and the sight of the Taktsang Monastery perched on a rocky cliff is breathtaking. We soak in the atmosphere and culture of this remarkable place, take some beautiful pictures, and rest our legs before trekking back down.


After returning to our hotel for some rest, we have the evening free to explore the market in Paro and enjoy our last night in Bhutan.

Day 16 Final departure, farewell from Paro

Today marks the end of the Nepal Tibet Bhutan Tour. After having a relaxed breakfast in the morning, you can spend some time exploring the area. Later, your guide will collect you from the hotel and take you to Paro Airport. It is recommended that you arrive at the airport a few hours ahead of the scheduled flight.
