We were so lucky to make this trip before the terrible Covid-19 pandemic made travel impossible. We were deliberating to take this trip during March-April when it would turn a bit warmer, but then Alice (my partner) could only schedule her holiday during Jan last. We thank our lucky stars now, that we had a change of plans. We would have been stuck somewhere if we had postponed our trip.
Well, overall we had a great trip. During the short 12 days of our holiday we made some really good memories that will last forever. The Annapurna trek to Poon Hill, the medieval temples and palaces in Kathmandu, the monasteries and pristine nature in Bhutan – all these were a treat to our senses. The guides were humble and knowledgeable. In fact everybody we met during our trip seemed so kind and helpful. We highly recommend This company and plan to travel with them in the near future.
Third Rock Adventures organized our first trip to Nepal back in 2018. It was a multi-adventure trip and we had a great time then. We came back again early this year to do the EBC trek. Luckily for us we were able to complete the trek and return to our country before the clampdown due to coronavirus took place. The trek was great and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Though the hike to EBC was a bit rough for my partner because of the altitude, the experience of walking and standing beneath the world’s highest mountain will remain in our hearts forever. Thanks to the awesome team at TRA. This was the best vacation we have ever taken. A shout out to our super guide and porters as well. Highly recommended!
Words won’t do justice to my awesome experience in Bhutan and Nepal, however, I will try. Bhutan has been in my bucket list for a long time and the mystical country in the Himalayas left me mesmerized. You can feel their deep-rooted culture in every aspect of Bhutan. Hike to Tiger’s Nest perched in a hill is a must and trust me you will be in awe of its beauty! Dzongs are Bhutan’s architectural delight and it’s colorful. I saw monks in red monks near monasteries, happy children and warm locals. We live in a time where you need to make time for others, here I felt special as warm locals made me feel welcomed and special. I had fun on the winding roads of Bhutan. I think more people should talk about the amazing car journey in Bhutan; well it’s surely not for those with motion sickness. Our driver Doorjee did an amazing job and our tour guide was very informative. It was fun to walk on the busy streets of Kathmandu while Nagarkot was a stark different- peaceful. It was perfect to unwind and end the trip in the hilltop settlement. It is said you can spot Everest from Nagarkot; not kidding. Third Rock team was very responsive from the beginning couldn’t have asked for a more accommodating company than this one.
I did this Nepal Bhutan tour with Third Rock in February 2020. Bhutan is a beautiful country beyond words. It seems that tradition and culture for Bhutanese are a way of life than a part of life. If you wish to get a unique experience then visiting Bhutan is a must; culture and hospitality are amazing. Can’t gush enough about Bhutan’s overwhelming architecture!
Bhutan is covered in green forests; you can see greenery everywhere. I battled with air pollution in Kathmandu while it felt like a privilege to breathe in the fresh air of Bhutan.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed my stay at Nagarcoat near Kathmandu, and the sunrise from Nagarkot was breathtaking. A durbar square of Kathmandu, Poushpati, and Buddhnath deserve special mention.
My best 15 Days in Nepal. I trekked through the beautiful trail to Gokyo Lakes in Everest Region. The views of the Himalayas including Everest is incredible. I stood in awe before the mountains. I never wanted to return but had to stick to my itinerary. Talking about Itinerary, I customized by itinerary so that I can enjoy my days. Thanks to professional travel consultant of Third Rock, he helped me figure out the best itinerary. My guide was friendly and ever-smiling. I had no any problems in the mountains. My food was good. Had good sleep after trekking for a few hours. Our hotel's owner were welcoming and helpful. Everything went perfect. loved my trek. Thanks to Third Rock Adventures again for their best services.
This year, I had an opportunity to explore three high passes in the Everest region of Nepal and I did it. All the credit to Third Rock. Had I contacted another company, I would not have got satisfied. Mr. Naba personally called me, I asked him to contact me again as I was not able to talk. I thought he won't do it but he called me and we had a great conversation, planning and preparing for this trek. He helped me prepare my gear and stuffs and when I was in Kathmandu, my trekking leader was great. He was knowledgeable and friendly. He made sure, I had good sleep and proper rest. He was able to answer to all my questions and that was impressive. I loved my trek. I think I will ask my friend to join me for my next trek to Everest Base Camp and no doubt, I will choose them again.
