Nepal and Bhutan are small, mountainous countries on the border between China and India, famous for their remoteness and spirituality. Both are popular with travellers who are interested in religious sites and with trekking and mountain climbing, although Bhutan has more of the former, and Nepal is also an excellent place to try extreme sports. Vegetarians will be pleased to know that the national dish of Nepal is lentil curry, while Bhutan has particularly spicy foods, and cooks favour using raw chilli. Both countries are noted for their friendly inhabitants, laid-back attitude and lack of crime.

Bhutan – Regions or Cities to Visit
Mount Everest

Bhutan Holidays Planner

Nepal's most famous destination is Mount Everest. Everest is increasingly popular but make sure you're well prepared; you can hire Sherpas to help guide you up the slopes. Even if you don't want to tackle the world's highest mountain, there are numerous other trails within the region, and various Buddhist shrines and temples. Chitwan National Park is another popular destination in Nepal, where you can see crocodiles, rhinos, and tigers – if you're lucky. In Bhutan, there are many trekking destinations and spiritual sights – the Taksang Monastery is the most notable of the latter, and seems to cling precariously to the side of an enormous cliff.

Highlights and Icons

Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal, and a centre for tourism. The city has numerous temples, including at dozens at Kathmandu Durbar Square, one of the most popular sights in the country. Thimbu, the capital of Bhutan, has a giant statue of Buddha, a number of temples and shrines, and a takin reserve; takins are a national symbol, and are something akin to goats. Both cities are excellent jumping-off points for visits to remote holy sights, treks and adventures. You can try to achieve the best balance of these by taking an "ethno-tourism trek", which combines walking with an insight into how locals live.
