We booked the Nepal and Bhutan Buddhist Pilgrimage Tour with Third Rock Adventures and we had a great trip. This was the first time that our family (parents, wife, uncles, aunts and cousins – altogether 17 people) travelled together. As we were a large group, we were expecting some confusion or glitches on the part of the company, but to our surprise everything went as planned. Thanks to the team at Third Rock for taking care of the minute details. The visit to Lumbini, birthplace of Sakyamuni Buddha was a spiritual experience. I personally enjoyed exploring Bhutan. After living in a city that seems like a concrete jungle, the abundant greenery in Bhutan felt like a warm embrace from mother nature. Thank you Thupten (guide) and Sonam (driver) in Bhutan and Kamal (guide) in Nepal for your patience, warmth and friendliness. This is a trip all of us will remember for a lifetime!
