Memorable Nepal-Bhutan trip
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.
Prompt response and good value.
Yes.

awesome trek and cultural tour
Finally got time to write my experience. Amidst this hard time, I am reminiscing my beautiful trip to Nepal and Bhutan. Imagine a marvelous trek and cultural tour in just 12 days? I was looking for this adventure and finally found- hosted by Third Rock Adventures. I wanted to visit to the Himalayan country, Nepal and Bhutan, and luckily Third Rock offered me their unique trip and unbeatable service. Had I been with some other company, I would not have enjoyed much. Flying to Pokhara was a beautiful experience. And when I was walking through the beautiful trail to Poon Hill, I was overwhelmed and excited. The stunning mountain views from Poon Hill was breath-taking. I always wanted to live in the mountains for few days and explore Bhutan. Bhutan was fabulous. Nepal is now the best country for me. My guide was helpful and friendly. The company bestowed what I say- quality service.

Cultural Bhutan and Himalayas of Nepal
The multi country trip to beautiful countries of Asia, Nepal and Bhutan was my best choice ever. I have just returned from an amazing holiday organised by Third Rock Adventures. I visited Bhutan for 4 days and did a 4 day hike in the Nepalese Himalayas with few days tour around Kathmandu. The experience was incredible. The guide in Bhutan and Nepal were very knowledgeable - taken to all the main sites which included temples, stupas and a festivals. The highlight was the trek up to the Tiger's Nest Temple. Beautiful mountains and scenery. My hike in the Nepalese Himalayas was also admiring. We went to Ghorepani and Poon Hill for the trek in Nepal which was really beautiful viewpoint from where we can see sunrise and panorama of the Himalayas. My guide Deepak was excellent - very attentive and helpful. The most wonderful sunrise at Poon hill - was worth the 4 am wake up. I would highly recommend this company and trip if you want to experience unspoiled Bhutan and hiking in Nepal.
