Nepal vs. Bhutan...the pros and cons?

Jump to last reply

So in grand tradition, I'm already thinking about our next trip (to follow up our upcoming Japan trip in April.)

After going through our work schedules for next year, we've already identified the timeframe we could get away for 2 weeks again: May 2012.

After consulting our ever-changing 'Next Top 10 Trips' list and cross-checking destinations and weather patterns, I think we've narrowed it down (after unfortunately having to rule out Sri Lanka, my first choice, due to the monsoon season around that time) to either Nepal or Bhutan.

I've done some preliminary research online but I wanted to pose the question to you guys (especially those of you who have been to both): other than the most obvious (COST!) what would be the major differences between these two places? What are the pros and cons? Although my DH is obsessed with the idea of trekking in Nepal, I'm just not sure if I'm up for what seems like more of a roughing-it/20something backpacker trip on our 1 vacation we'll have next year.

I would guess that the scenery in Bhutan (admittedly the thing I would look most forward to on a trip like this) is somewhat similar to Nepal? Seems Bhutan would offer us the ability to splurge on a swanky hotel or two as well as give us the ability to day smaller treks if we should want to.

But I am slightly torn, so I look forward to your input.
