Preparing for Your Nepal and Bhutan Travel 

A few weeks prior to traveling, make a list of necessary items, and ensure all necessary documents (passport, visas, identification document and driver's licenses) are in order. Please carry photocopies of all the important documents, and pack the originals separately. Keep a digital copy of your passport handy on a cell phone or digital camera. 

Bringing enough prescription medications for the duration of the trip in case your luggage gets delayed can also be helpful, while over-the-counter remedies like headache, gastritis or anti-diarrhea pills could come in handy as well. If you have any other underlying conditions, inform us prior to your flight. You may also prepare a list of medications including dosage and generic names to avoid hassle while buying medicines. It is also a good idea to bring medication to relieve the airplane pressure and avoid congested ears or tubes. 

We also suggest carrying an emergency of clothes on duffle bags or carry-ons. To avoid the loss of luggage, we suggest you select bags with patterns or colors that easily stand out. Do not place valuables, such as cameras, in your checked luggage. 

Due to security considerations, museums often impose limits on the size and type of bags brought inside; backpacks, carry-on bags or large purses may not be permitted inside; it would be advisable for guests to bring along a smaller shoulder bag or purse instead. If you're packing liquid containers, please put them in Ziploc bags.

On this day, we will wake up early to witness the sunrise. After breakfast, we will check out of the hotel and drive to Bhaktapur which takes about 40-minute. This world heritage town is renowned for its ancient temples, palaces, and historical architecture. Bhaktapur has enough attractions to keep us occupied for 2 hours. From there, we’ll return back to our hotel in Kathmandu. Make sure you get enough rest and prepare for the Bhutan trip, scheduled to begin the following day.

Day 4 - Depart for Bhutan

On this day, our Bhutan adventure will start with a flight to Paro Airport where spectacular panoramic views of the Himalayas-including Mount Everest-are waiting. As we make our approach through Bhutanese foothills on our approach to Paro Airport we may encounter steep turns before landing safely at its tiny airstrip. Once we arrive in Bhutan, we need to complete a few immigration formalities. There, we will meet our tour guide and begin the 1.5-hour scenic drive to Thimphu - Bhutan's capital city. The drive follows Pa Chu River until its confluence with Wang Chu River before continuing up into Thimphu Valley. After checking-in to our hotel, we will begin an evening sightseeing tour, beginning with a visit to Memorial Chorten (Stupa), built to remember the late 3rd King. Next stop will be Kuenselphodrang with its tallest Buddha statue in the world and amazing views across Thimphu Valley from there.

Once in Punakha, we will visit Chimi Lhakhang - commonly referred to as the Temple of the Divine Madman and dedicated to Drukpa Kuenley; a 20-minute stroll through paddy fields and local farmhouses will bring us there. Next we will visit Punakha Dzong, one of Bhutan's most impressive dzongs (fortresses).

Once the hunting ground of British and Nepalese aristocrats, this park today protects some of the world's endangered species, including one-horned rhinoceros, tigers, deers, and exotic birds.

When the day's excursion has come to an end and relaxation time arrives - one of the hotels nearby will offer welcome relief making every minute of your trip worth it.

Day 10 - Chitwan Exploration Day

It's another day of adventure in Chitwan National Park with activities like jungle walks, elephant rides, village visits, canoeing trips to the elephant breeding center and bird-watching among many others.

Meal, Accommodation and Other Facilities during Nepal and Bhutan Trip


The hotels and restaurants in Nepal and Bhutan provide a wide range of dishes. Both vegetarian and vegan dishes are available on our Nepal and Bhutan tour.   


The accommodation is twin-based sharing, but you can get a single room with additional fee. Hotels in Bhutan are approved and classified by the government according to grades A, B and C; grade C hotels correspond to 3-star properties elsewhere. On our Nepal visit, we will stay in three- and four-star deluxe hotels.   

Communication and Internet

Local sim cards are available to purchase at both countries; typically this should cost no more than one US dollar per SIM. You will be required to submit an application form along with passport photos and copies for purchase. When traveling through remote areas, purchasing an internet data package could prove useful. Hotels, cafes and public hubs generally provide free wifi that has great speed and connectivity but you may incur an additional charge depending on where you go.   

Transportation Details

We usually provide comfortable luxury buses for the tour and private pick up and drop-offs (for individual tourists).

Best time to travel

The Nepal Bhutan Tour can be undertaken at any time of the year, however, we would suggest spring (March to May), autumn (September-November), and early winter (December). These months have an ideal climate - neither too hot nor too cold! While mornings and evenings may get chilly during these months, daytime temperatures remain pleasant.

What type of clothes should I pack?

Lightweight, loose fitting clothes that can be easily washed would be ideal for the most part of the trip. However, even the summers in Paro and Thimpu can be cool, so be mindful of the climate changes. Try to pack more lightweight layers instead of thick and bulky jackets. Bhutan has conservative attitudes towards dress, so a revealing and scruffy look may feel out of place. Out of respect for the local values, we suggest you pack clothes that cover your arms and legs. While shorts during the summer are not frowned upon in Nepal, we suggest you still be careful not to wear too revealing clothes. The climate in Kathmandu and Nagarkot compared to Chitwan is lower, so we suggest bringing a pair or two of warm cardigans and thin jackets. During your jungle safari, you will find that loose clothes with full sleeves will be effective in preventing mosquito bites.

Do I need to carry any equipment for the hikes?

The hikes in this tour aren't particularly strenuous; most trails are flat and wide, and climbing to higher heights won't be necessary. But for extra peace of mind and support during your hikes, pack supportive footwear and hiking poles just in case!

Travel Insurance

Purchase travel insurance is highly advised for peace of mind and financial protection while traveling outside your home country. While your health plan may provide limited coverage abroad, we strongly suggest investing in trip cancellation, interruption, delay, travel delays and medical emergency expenses coverage insurance as well as lost/delayed baggage coverage to guard against unexpected events that might prevent or interrupt your journey.

Getting to Bhutan from Nepal

Bhutan is a restricted Asian country, so all the citizens, excluding Indians and Maldivians Bangladesh are required to obtain the visa to enter Bhutan. The visa, priced at USD 40, is issued at Paro airport and verified at Thimphu, Bhutan's capital city. 

For international travelers flying to Bhutan from Nepal, you will need the Nepalese visa which is priced at about USD 30.

Bhutan Visa Application

You cannot apply for a visa for Bhutan via the embassy. It cannot be done online or in person; instead, you have to apply through an authorized tour operator (registered in the Bhutan's Department of Immigration and Tourism Council of Bhutan). We will arrange the visa on your behalf  and once outbound travel has occurred, we will issue the clearance document which must be presented upon arrival in Bhutan. 

Information required

You need to provide complete information on your passport including:

  • Full name
  • Addresse
  • Occupation 
  • Nationality
  • Passport number
  • Date of the issue of your passport 
  • Birthplace
  • Dates of birth
  • Passport expiration date 

Minimum of six months should be kept on the passport following the date of travel.

A scanned color photocopy of the passport is also required for completing the application process. The application is submitted at least one month prior to the travel date. Upon approval, the Department of Immigration will issue the visa clearance number and send it to us as well as the immigration terminals at the checkpoints through the Tourism Council of Bhutan. Once you reach the immigration office, an official stamp is applied to your passport. 


Be sure to bring an adequate number of passport size photos, along with copies of your passport and personal identification documents, for maximum efficiency when traveling abroad. Packing them all separately in your luggage will make the experience much smoother; digital copies can always be useful should any unexpected situations arise. We also advise that you carry the original passport and personal identification document in your handbag.

The Nepal Bhutan tour is the perfect trip for anyone looking to unwind from their hectic lifestyles and revel pleasure in the beautiful natural beauty and rich culture of these stunning nations.

Best Nepal - Bhutan trip
Traveling to Nepal for the first time and making it back safe (and a better person) – I will have to say that I definitely made the right choice to travel with Earthbound Expeditions as my guide and agent. For first time travelers: the best way to start your adventure is to hire someone who can navigate the labyrinth of options for you. From finding and booking hotels to arranging (and changing) airline and bus tickets. Traveling in Nepal is not like anyplace else (that I have experienced). You will have to be patient and flexible. Having someone to take care of the formalities for you makes things much easier and can save you a lot of stress and time. If you are worried about being on a “tour” and being stuck with a schedule – don’t be. I have changed my mind about bus travel after my first trip from Kathmandu to Pokhara. Rajan got me on a flight – no problem. Last minute. I didn’t particularly like the hotel in Pokhara so I found a better one – I then called Rajan – he changed the hotel for me. No problem. As I got more comfortable in Nepal and still had time to spear I decided to add trekking to my repertoire. As usual – no problem. He even provided the guide I felt comfortable trekking with and some small things that I needed for the trek (since I was completely unprepared). I canceled (last minute) my trip to Tibet due to problem with my permit (I had to travel to Shanghai after Tibet and I didn’t have time to get a new Chinese visa) – no problem. It is not an easy task to manage people’s expectations while using very limited resources. Earthbound Expeditions and Rajan did absolutely amazing job. You will have to change your realities and standards – things are not the same in the mountains. But after a month I have to say that I had an incredible journey and memories to last me a life time. I will definitely return to Nepal soon. And even now though being able to manage the trip by myself - I would definitely chose to work with Earthbound Expeditions.

Expected great, Got much more... Before Covid, I longed to travel to the Himalayas and happened upon Earthbound’s website. The Nepal/Tibet/Bhutan trip sounded wonderful and I reached out to Rajan, it’s owner. We planned a customized private trip for my wife and I along the basic lines of the itinerary. Well, due to the pandemic we were forced to delay the trip multiple times and as availability and geo politics required changes and adjustments, Rajan worked continuosly with us to design the best possible experience. We probably emailed each other over 200 times and his responsiveness, professionalism and very friendly manner was the same on the last one as on the first. We just returned, and we will need time to fully appreciate the cultural richness, visual wonder and excitement of this extraordinary trip (so many remarkable moments.) We are experienced travellers and have worked with several very highly regarded travel outfits. None of them came close to the level of concern, flexibility and oversight that Rajan provided us throughout. If this region of the world interests you, call him.



Wonderful Nepal and Bhutan trip
My friend and I booked a customized Nepal and Bhutan trip through Earthbound Expedition and it was a lot of fun. I can't say enough about how helpful Rajan was in organizing the trip for us. We were on a three-week trip and decided to detour at the last minute to the Himalayan region. I had been corresponding with Rajan about two weeks before we left and we ended up finalizing and booking about four days before going. To make things even more complicated, we were in Russia at the time, where we had a very limited internet connection. Rajan pulled it all off effortlessly and cheerfully. Our 13 hour time difference wasn't even an issue; he always responded promptly. Even though he's a busy man, we felt like we were his only customers. He even treated us to momos on our return to Kathmandu! We both loved this trip and are so appreciative of Rajan for making it happen.



Best Tour Organizers
Absolutely blown away by the professionalism and flexibility shown by Earthbound staff and its president, Rajan. From the very beginning, they have shown interest in providing me with the best services related to my planned itinerary. They organized fantastic hotels, and a wonderful tour - a 12 day trip that was a glimpse into Nepal and Bhutan. Cannot think of the trip as any better and if you do go with them be sure to get to know Rajan better, he is a Nepalese renaissance man and his stories are super interesting. The whole experience, the highest quality, was also relatively cheap as I was choosing from a number of agencies. Also, they organized a very good tour operator in Bhutan (Country Travels) that provided me with a fantastic tour guide and driver. Keeping fingers crossed for continued success and for tourism coming back to Nepal after the events in April.



Great adventures with great service in Nepal and Bhutan!
This August was already the second time we used Earthbound's excellent services in Nepal. In 2013 Rajan's team earned our trust and respect in their professional but friendly way of arranging days full of activities, including day hikes and sightseeing, rafting and such. This August we had a double agenda: Kathmandu and hiking in the surrounding area and a Bhutan tour. Again Nepal did not disappoint us: wonderful sights, friendly people, good food. Bhutan was an adventure! Also extraordinary sights, scenery, friendly people, and professional guiding and driving. Our day-hike to Tiger's Nest was the highlight of our tour. We will definitively be back to this corner of the world!
