Bhutan & Nepal
Retreating to Soulful Bliss atop the Himalayas in Bhutan, Nepal
If your idea of a vacation has less to do with shopping and adrenaline rush and more to do with rediscovering yourself in the lap of nature, then a quiet retreat to Nepal and Bhutan is just the right therapy for you. Bejeweled with the gift of majestic Himalayas, the spiritual and soulful traditions of Buddhism and Hinduism, and warm hospitality of the local people, these two small nations of South Asia together pack a big deal as tourist destinations. Bhutan, which is relatively less known in the West, can surprise a visitor by its immense ecological wealth being home to over 750 species of birds and 5300 species of plants. Nepal, on the other hand, can cater to varied interests and besides temples and monasteries, features casinos and adventure activities as well. And for those who won't mind to push their limits, a trek to the base of Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world, is an experience not to be missed.
