Best Time To Go

You may expect rain and thunderstorms if you decide to travel during monsoon season(June, July, August). A winter travel will have you facing extreme cold and freezing temperatures. But the upside of travelling during monsoon and winter is less crowds and off-season discounts.

The tour of these mystical counties was in my bucket list for a long time. After a few email exchange with the team of Third Rock Adventures, I booked my trip with them for me and my friend. I appreciate their patience in answering my queries and making my trip a memorable one. We had an amazing flight to Paro, Bhutan considering its one of the most dangerous airports in the world. Takstang Monastery or Tiger’s Nest was magical but the one I loved the most was Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten. Hiking past the golden rice fields to the top of the Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten was awesome. It overlooks Punakha valley and has some breathtaking views. Don’t miss this place guys!!! Kathmandu has its ancient craftsmanship to boast while Pokhara has its natural beauty. The hike of Naudanda was fun with amazing mountain views which made me think if I should do trekking in Annapurna region? Who knows I may be back in few years for a trek in Nepal! The peaceful ambience of monasteries and Jokhang temple of Lhasa overwhelmed me.

I and a couple of my friends booked a multi-country tour to Nepal Bhutan and Tibet with Third Rock Adventures. They were quick to respond to my emails and were co-operative with queries which made me feel we were in capable hands. The flight to Bhutan was scenic and we flew amidst the highest mountains in the world including Everest. Hike to Taktsang Monastery was wonderful and words won’t be enough to describe the experience. It’s vivid as I write and the peace you get there is incomparable. One word which describes Nepal was diverse. The three Durbar squares easily transported me to the medieval era. Away from the chaotic capital, Kathmandu is Pokhara. Its scenic beauty of mountains, lakes, caves allures you. Sunrise from Sarangkot was worth the hike. I wanted to chill some more days in Pokhara but Lhasa was calling us. I was stunned by the grandeur of the iconic Potala Palace and Norbulingka palace. I was overwhelmed by the sight of devotes paying near Jokhang Temple in the Barkhor Bazaar. At this day and age where there isn’t a shortage of cynical people, it was amazing to see such devotion of people. Thank you to the team of Third Rock for making my trip wonderful!

My friends and I decided to book the Bhutan Nepal Tibet tour with Third Rock Adventures after several email exchanges. We believe we were offered a very good price and the perfect itinerary. The team was ready to tailor the itinerary to suit our needs. Everything went smoothly and we had a rich and colorful cultural experience. Bhutan was fascinating and so was Tibet. We felt we were in another era while visiting the monasteries and castles. Kathmandu was chaotic but we loved the heritage sites in Patan and Bhaktapur. Pokhara was beautiful and we wished we could have stayed some more time taking in the sights. But there’s always a next time and we hope to be back soon. The guides very knowledgeable and friendly. The hotels where our rooms were booked were all very comfortable and clean. Thanks to the Third Rock team for a fabulous trip. Definitely recommending this company to anyone who is planning to travel to these countries.

Good Value.
Yes.
Because we were interested in visiting these three countries.
Though entire trip was memorable, we loved the hike to Taktsang Monastery, Pokhara and Bhaktapur. Potala Palace amazed us.
Keep an open mind and enjoy the experience.
