Best (and safest) Place to see the Himalayas

Jump to last reply

My husband has always dreamed of seeing the Himalayas (wanted to be a mountain climber when he was a kid). We are in our 60's, pretty adventurous, but with no desire to put ourselves in harm's way. We are not hikers but would want to enjoy the incredible views and explore the local cultures.

I have identified several possibilities, but most of them have potential drawbacks in terms of political unrest and general safety. Bhutan, of course, is the safest option but also the most restrictive and expensive.

So, of these possiblities (and there may be more) what would you suggest?

Bhutan
Nepal
Northern India -- Darjeeling and West Bengal Hills or Ladakh
Tibet

Thanks for your help!
