We enjoyed it so much during our Nepal and Bhutan Tour. Our tour starts in Nepal and ends at Bhutan. We visit Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur cities that have charmed millions of tourists. This day trip to Taktsang Monastery was our highlight in Bhutan! We thought Bhutan is very cold and packed so much for a week’s holiday, but it is not as cold as we thought.

It was a great way to immerse ourselves in the Bhutanese culture.
