Our next destination for the day is Buddha Point, where you will witness the astonishing statue of Buddha standing at a height of 169 feet. Reached on a short drive from Thimphu city center, the statue of Buddha overlooks the Thimphu valley. From the site, you also get to enjoy the stunning panoramic view of the valley.

Tashichho Dzong 

This is the last destination for your first day on the trip. Tashichho Dzong is a beautiful fortress on the bank of the Wang Chu River. Historically serving as the seat of the Dharma Raja of Bhutan, today, Tashichho Dzong is the center of the Bhutanese government. Visiting the site, you get to witness the monarch’s throne rooms and offices.

The day starts with a delicious breakfast at your hotel. Today, we resume our magnificent trip with a scenic drive to Punakha. On the way, you will come across DochuLa Pass, located at an altitude of 3,150 meters above sea level. From here, you get to enjoy breathtaking views of the snow-capped mountains of the eastern Himalayas.  

After arriving at Punakha, you will visit the Punakha Dzong, which is also popular as the Palace of Great Happiness and is one of the most fascinating dzongs in the country. Built by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel in 1673, Punakha Dzong is located at the meeting points of the Phochu and Mochu rivers and is surrounded by lush green hills. Historically, it served as the administrative as well as religious center of Bhutan. Today, it still serves as the administrative center of Punakha district and a popular tourist destination to learn the history and religious and cultural spirit of the country.  

After visiting Punakha Dzong, you will have a break for lunch at a city restaurant.  

Today you will also visit Chimi Lhakhang, which is a temple dedicated to Drukpa Kunley, a revered saint in Bhutan. To visit Chimi Lhakhang, you will start your journey on a 15-minute drive from a hotel to reach a motorable road. From here, you will hike for around 45 minutes to reach the temple. The temple is also popular as the “Fertility Temple” and it is believed that it blesses couples who are trying to have a baby.  

After visiting Chimi Lhakhang, you will drive back to the hotel in Punakha, where you will have dinner and stay overnight.

Day 3

Drive Back to Paro and sightseeing

Waking up early, you will start the day with a warm breakfast in your hotel. After breakfast, you will wave goodbye to Punakha to drive back to Paro, descending through the same route of DochuLa. As you pass through the dramatic Paro Chhu and Wang Chhu River valleys, you are presented with stunning views of the surrounding landscapes. 

On the way, you will also make a visit to Simtokha Dzong, which is one of the oldest Dzong in the country, also popular for its unique architecture and wall paintings. The historically important monument of profound tantric teaching, today it serves as the premier institute to learn the Dzongkha language.

From the museum, you will descend to arrive at Rinpung Dzong, also popular as the “fortress of the heap of jewels”. One of the most impressive Dzong in Bhutan, it has a fascinating history. The fine wall paintings along the wooden galleries inside represent Buddhist lore such as four friends – the wheel of life, and the old man of long life, scenes from the life of Mount Sumeru, Milarepa, and other cosmic Mandalas.  

From Rinpung Dzong, you will return to your hotel, where you will have dinner and stay overnight.

Day 4

Explore Paro

After early morning breakfast, tie your shoes for a scenic 5 hours hike to Taktsang Monastery, also popular as the Tiger’s Nest. It is believed that the legendary Guru Rinpoche arrived at the monastery on the back of a tiger to meditate, for which, the monastery got its name – Tiger’s Nest. Guru Rinpoche is acknowledged as the founder of Tibetan Buddhism and is a significant religious figure in Bhutan.  

Taktsang Monastery stands on a cliff, 900 meters above the Paro Valley floor, and is one of the key attractions in the country. The site is one of the most sacred places, where Bhutanese visit at least once in their lifetime to achieve wisdom and divine power.   

Upon arriving at the top, Taktsang Monastery offers incredible views of the valley and surrounding mountains. The intricate carvings, paintings, temples, and smaller shrines inside the monastery are also breathtaking to witness.  

After the hike, you will return to your hotel for rest and lunch.

The tour gave me such an amazing experience, especially about the cultural, historical and religious values of Nepalis. 2 colleagues and me went on 1 tour of NBM Travel, in 4 nights and 5 days in Nepal (Limbini, Nagarkot, and Kathmandu). Mr Sujit, the Manager was very supportive in arranging a customized tour for us, meeting all our requirements. He is very responsive and professional, with quite good connections to help us (our domestic flight was delayed, he managed to get us on board of an earlier flight)Mr Subash, the Tour Guide, was also responsible and hospitable. He always tried to make us enjoy the trip. He is also expertised in his job, knowing a lot of information about the tourist attractions. He was very ready to help when we want to buy local fruits, and very collaborative when we want to change the schedule.The tour gave me such an amazing experience, especially about the cultural, historical and religious values of Nepalis. In our tour, we also planned to see the Himalayan Ranges from our Hotel in Nagarkot and from Chandragiri Hills, but the weather was so cloudy during our stay. It may be a good reason for our come back to Nepal next time and enjoy the hospitality of NBM Team.

Fantastic We had such a fantastic experience in Nepal with this tour company. We were overwhelmed by how welcoming and warm Sudarshan and his team were from the moment we arrived. We felt so comparable and taken care of in the beautiful Nivas Botique home in Kathmandu. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. We enjoyed delicious, complimentary authentic Nepalese meals and had such a fanatic stay here. We travelled to Pokhara for 2 nights in very comfortable private transportation. We had a fantastic 2 days of activities including paragliding and white water rafting, all organised for us. We couldn’t have asked for a better trip and I couldn’t recommend using this travel company more. We will definitely be back in the future!

Amazing Trip! We spent 4 fantastic days in Kathmandu and Pokhara with NBM travel. Our trip included paragliding, sight seeing and an Everest flight. Management went above and beyond to make us feel welcome, safe and ensure that we had the best time. Would highly recommend this travel company!
绝美风景,期待下次再见 不同于之前在国内看到的雪山,喜马拉雅山系的雪山绵延不绝,又高又长,能见度好的时候能看到一片的雪山,感觉自己第一次离雪山那么近,超震撼的感觉。看到了鱼尾峰的鱼尾巴,好美!雨林里山中的空气超级好,刚好走的那段路像原始丛林一般,很美空气很新鲜,竟然有点爱上这种雨中漫步的感觉~选的旅行社的老板人真的很好!安排的十分妥当,爱上这种异国他乡的快乐啦哈哈!不过这是我们第一次相遇,但绝对不是最后一次相聚!
很棒的旅游体验-Kathmandu 一直有想去尼泊尔旅行的想法,前些日子终于下决心仔细研究了,人生地不熟的,问了朋友的朋友有没有旅行社推荐,就推荐了这家,英文名NBM中文名大山旅游,老板中文名也叫大山,感觉对中国文化很有研究,让我们这种出国游的感觉很安心。老板很靠谱,给安排了懂中文的向导,沟通很顺利,人也很亲切。不得不说尼泊尔景色真不错,适合放松身心,有机会的话还会再来,也会多推荐大山旅游的。

Great if you have limited time to visit the city I was in Nepal in November and after a trek of 10 days I only had 1 and a half day to visit Kathmandu. I found out many places to visit in Kathmandu are far from each other (5 to 10 km) and walking between places is not an option (heavy traffic). So I decided to book a private tour (I was a solo traveller) and had a great experience. My guide Raj took me to all the important places , UNESCO sites, and explained everything about the place we were visiting. I would recommend this tour to anyone who has limited time to explore the city. -1 point as the guides will take you to shop/restaurant they have an agreement with, I didn't mind the shop as they don't force you to buy anything, but I would have wanted to choose the restaurant by myself

Cable Car Trip near Kathmandu Me and my friends travelled Kathmandu this July and we went for a short distance trip to Chandragiri Hill. Cable Car took us to Chandragiri hill, which is best to escape from hustle and bustle of Kathmandu. The view of Kathmandu was beautiful as rain cleared up the sky. The guide we were provided was professional and he told us incredible stories of the hill. Overall it was fantastic trip.

Trekking, Local, culture views and sites 5 days in Nepal trek was awesome. We went to Sundarijal, then to Chisapani walking a lot of stairs and then to Nagarkot. We could see beautiful peaks from Dhaulagiri to Everest. People at Sundarijal seem very friendly. All in all, our trek was very nice and we enjoyed it very much.

Amazing Trip! Thank you to the folks at NBM Travel for an awesome trip to Nepal! Shristi was incredibly helpful with coordinating everything and answering all of my silly logistical questions from the moment I booked the trip. My tour guide Mani provided so much support on the tour, from sharing his knowledge about Nepali culture and history, to helping me find souvenirs at a good price, to rearranging our itinerary when we had weather delays. I chose this tour specifically to learn about the many cultures and lifestyles of Nepal and was not disappointed. Each location was so different from the last - Kathmandu is the chaotic capital, Chitwan is a gorgeous jungle where you’ll see animals that you’d never expect to see up close in real life (still can’t believe how close I was to crocodiles and a rhino!), and Pokhara feels like a cute beach resort. We were unable to go to Lumbini due to weather, so we spent an extra day in Pokhara and an extra day in Kathmandu, which worked out fine for relaxing and shopping. Even the bus rides between cities were interesting because you could see examples of life in the countryside and some really cool landscapes. There was a decent balance of sightseeing and free time, and I really liked each of the hotels we stayed at. If you are interested in learning about Nepal beyond trekking, this is a great introduction. They have such an interesting diversity and unique history, I wish more people knew about it!If you go in July, like I did, you’ll likely catch some rain (monsoon season), so make sure you pack accordingly! Rain boots, rain coat, and quick dry pants worked well on rainy days and the boat tour/jungle trek in Chitwan, plus a few pairs of comfortable pants and a pair of sandals for sunny days. Don’t let the name “monsoon” scare you off from coming if this is the only time of year you can go. You’ll still see, do, and eat a lot! (Make sure you have dal bhat and momo while you are here...they are the best!)
