Here are few frequently asked questions for Nepal and Bhutan tour;

When is the best time to visit Nepal and Bhutan?

The ideal periods to explore these Himalayan kingdoms are spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). However, you can visit throughout the year, depending on your preferences and desired activities.

The only exception is trekking trails, which require permits but not necessarily the presence of a guide. Traveling within Nepal is hassle-free, granting you the liberty to venture anywhere in the country.

However, Bhutan has stricter regulations in place due to its emphasis on environmental tourism. All tourists visiting Bhutan must be part of a pre-booked tour that includes a private vehicle, driver, and guide. Even during treks, a guide and support team will accompany you at all times. These measures are implemented to safeguard the kingdom's environment from potential harm caused by tourism and to preserve its unique experience for future visitors.

During the peak season, daily flights are available from Nepal, and additional flights are often arranged to accommodate high demand. With a reasonable cost of approximately US$ 240 per person (one way, depends on availability), the flight is an affordable option.
