December - January Nepal Tour Review

I spent 8 days in Kathmandu and Bhutan in January 2020. I organised my trip through itournepal. Rabi was so helpful and responsive during the planning stage. I was so excited to get there and to get going. My trip was beyond incredible - Rabi had listened and organised a trip that took in incredible sites but gave me plenty of time to wander and look for the authentic experiences you have by slowing down and interacting with people. Sarjan, my guide in Kathmandu was sensational. He was incredibly knowledgable and interesting. He was flexible which meant that we could change the itinerary and timing to ensure that I was able to linger longer at places. In Bhutan my guide Drukpa and driver Ram were the best. Drukpa again was very knowledgable and Ram such a good driver. They helped make the trek to Tigers Nest enjoyable - I am terrified of heights!! We had such a great time on our 4 day road trip - if you’re lucky Ram will even sing for you as you drive through the stunning Bhutanese countryside. I will definitely be returning to Nepal and will definitely use Rabi and his team again. If you want to discover the real Nepal use a local tour company, use itournepal. - Georgie Mary - Hong Kong

December - February is best season !
Nepal is perfect place to seek your spiritual quests as everything here connects with nature, wisdom yoga and religious practices. Here Hinduism, Buddhism, Tantrism, shamanism and animism blends and coexists in harmony. Ayurveda (ancient herbal medicinal knowledge) is still practiced in day to day life, Vastushastra (architecture based on five elements and natural forces) layout the cities and buildings and Jyotish shastra foretells destiny of every child. This was land where Lord Buddha was born. One interpretation of Nepal meaning ‘cave resorts’ have been a land for several enlightened beings. While the political strife and invasions wiped out several spiritual practices in its neighboring countries, Nepal became safe heaven until recently. December and January is perfect time to go on a spiritual tour of Nepal. Use your ‘Christmas and New year 2023 holiday’ go on a spiritual tour of Nepal.
