Known as the, ‘Three Jewels of the Himalayas’, this tour of Nepal, Bhutan and India combines the iconic Golden Triangle of New Delhi-Rajashtan and Agra with the natural wonders of Nepal and the enigmatic beauties of Bhutan.

The tour begins in Nepal with guided explorations through the rich history and culture of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur, and ending in Pokhara and Chitwan, two other important destinations in Nepal. Pokhara is famous for its natural beauty and breathtaking views of high, snow-clad mountains. Our visit to Chitwan, situated in the low-lands and close to the plains of India, brings us into the jungle homes of the Royal Bengal tiger, Greater One-horned rhinoceros, Asian elephants, sloth bears, leopards, monkeys and birds too numerous to name.

Paro, Thimphu and Punkha are the heartlands of Bhutan’s rich culture and history. Guided tours of Paro, Thimphu and Punakha offer a fascinating opportunity to experience Bhutan’s unique culture, history and hospitality.

This cross-country tour ends in incredible India, the land of contrast and exotic cultures.  The visit to India starts with guided explorations of the rich history and culture of Delhi.

The magical Taj Mahal of Agra and the pulsating Pink City of Jaipur are two other important destinations on this tour, all combined to bring you into a, ‘Journey of a Lifetime’!
