The Cultural Richness of the Himalaya

An exclusive discovery of the Himalaya. The cultural richness of the Himalaya population of Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan in a single Journey. Join us for a unique Journey to discover the cultural treasures of such population.

Nepal

At the start, a guided sightseeing of Kathmandu of the UNESCO heritage sites. You are surrounded by thousand colours and sounds. But you feel then delighted in the preserved heritage premium accommodation. The senses are at worked, the mind released of the daily tensions.

A day full of contrasts. A great introduction of Nepal, its traditions and culture.

Tibet

During the one-and-half hour of your flight to Lhasa, catch the beauty of the Himalaya range. The snow-capped summits of the highest mountain range on earth are closer than ever. The first step in the autonomous region of China makes you feel in another dimension.

The legendary Tibet and its high Plateau. Here you are. The enchantment of the pilgrims and the murmur of their mantra (prayer) Om Ma Ni Pad Me Hum accompanies you through the alleys of the historical centre of Lhasa. The authentic spectacle is intense. Pious pilgrims from every corner of Tibet gather around Jokhang Temple on Bharkor Street in their traditional costume.

On one hand, the cultural treasures of the various UNESCO world heritage sites. On the other hand, the impressive landscape of the roof of the World. A combination for an unforgettable Journey.

Bhutan

Before heading to Bhutan, enjoy the oasis of the prestigious Dwarika Hotel in Kathmandu. But the charm of discovery of the Himalayan culture takes then the lead again. After a flight, this time along the Himalayan range, we explore the small Kingdom of Bhutan.

This Journey brings us first through the valley of Paro and its numerous Dzongs (fortresses of Bhutan). As highlight, we discover then the famous Taktsang “Tiger’s Nest”. This Monastery is perched on a rocky ledge 900 meters above the valley. An inspiring legend per se!

An exclusive introduction to the uniquely preserved culture, as well as the natural beauty of the Dragon Kingdom.
