Trip Planning for Bhutan and Nepal

Jump to last reply

Hi Fodorites ~ Husband and I are planning a trip to Bhutan and Nepal and have some questions that we hope you can help answer...
1. What is the best month to go so that it is clear and most likely we could see the mountains and avoid the rainy season?
2. What are the best tour companies? Some seem to offer both countries such as: http://www.farfungplaces.com/trips_bh/bhutan_travel_1.html
3. What are the top ten places to visit in each country?
4. How many days in each country...we are thinking about ten in each.
5. We don't want to take long treks in the mountains but are eager to walk in the cities and villages.
Any information will be greatly appreciated...

    Have you purchased a guidebook yet? A number of your questions would be best answered by perusing a gudebook (like top 10 places to seee in each country).

    In Bhutan you are required to hire a Bhutanese company to guide you. Far Fung is an intermediary, they contract with locals for guiding. When hiring a company for Bhutan, the most important thing for you to do is to specify exactly what you want to do/see/expereince, otherwise you'll get a "standard" tour.

    In Nepal, there is no reason to use a tour company.

    Start your research here on Fodors by reading some trip reports. If you click on my name, you'll see my profile and a list of my trip reports. You can access my Nepal trip report by clicking on it.

    At the top of this page, there is a "view by country" drop down menu. Screen for Bhutan and for Nepal. Since the trip report function is relatively new, not all old trip reports are so flagged. But do look for reports by TracyB and ewrench for Nepal and for Robbietravels report on Bhutan.

    Once you have a better idea of what you want to do, ask specific questions. Specific question get more and better responses than very general questions.

    Bhutan and Nepal will be a wonderful trip.
