  There is no place on earth, you will find such a spectacular, beautiful landscape as you will in Nepal. Not only will you find the highest mountain on the planet, Mount Everest, you will also find eight of the ten highest mountains in the world. The Himalayan spine follows Nepal’s northern border from west to east giving the country spectacular vistas from one end to the other. In amongst this spectacular landscape you will find thousands of Buddhist and Hindu Temples and Monasteries. The Mountainous terrain is adorned with Prayer flags, Stupas and Mani stones, testimony to the devotion in which the Nepalese worship their Gods and Goddesses. In Kathmandu you will find the historical remnants of the three kingdoms of Kantipur (Kathmandu), Lalitpur (Patan) and Bhaktapur. And to the south, on the Terrai is Lumbini, Birthplace of the Buddha and a pilgrimage destination to Buddhists the world over.  
  Bhutan - Land of the Thunder Dragon is one of the most exotic destinations in the world today. This kingdom, often referred to as the last Shangri-la, is a land of outstanding people, remarkable scenery and natural wonders, and a proud and vibrant culture. A unique and rare place that few have had the privilege of visiting. Wedged between the world's giants, India and the Tibetan region of China, Bhutan is today slowly opening up to the world through a sensitive approach to tourism. You can now discover the cultural and natural wonders of this last remaining Mahayana Buddhist Kingdom of the Himalaya. Here is a kingdom that is just throwing off the veil of mystery, and opening its doors to visitors. Bhutan has a pristine environment, almost no pollution, and a living culture where festivals and cultural events are a part of daily life and not creations for tourism. Let us take care of your needs on your tour of this little known kingdom.  
  Whichever trip you take to Tibet it will be one like no other. From the breathtaking scenery of the Himalayas and the Tibetan Plateau, to the Monasteries, Temples, Chortens, Statues, Prayer wheels Prayer Flags, and endless other Tibetan Buddhist symbols and relics that adorn this wonderful land. Tibet is steeped in a rich history, a history of Lamas and saints and of wars and invasions. This once, warrior like nation embraced Buddhism from as far back as 641 CE and since that time has gone on to create some of the finest institutions and monuments to Buddhism. To meet with the people of Tibet is both an experience of inspiration and of sadness and heartache. The Tibetans are strong people both mentally and physically. They have needed to be over recent times in the face adversity and oppression. But whatever you take from your visit to Tibet it will be one that stays with you.

India is a feast for the senses. There is nowhere to surpass this wonderful country when it comes to religious and spiritual diversity. Wherever you visit in India you are reminded of what a great geographical, historical and religious nation this is.
