After arriving in Hasimara, take the local buses to Jaigaon, which is located near Phuentsholing on the Indo-Bhutanese border. After crossing the border, your tour guide and driver will usually be waiting for you, and they will take you by private car to your hotel in Paro or Thimphu.

However, even in the middle of the monsoon, there are locations in both Nepal and Bhutan where there is little to no rain and it is still possible to trek or travel.


​Food in Bhutan

The spiciness of Bhutanese food is its most distinguishing feature.

Nepal Bhutan Tour- Great and humble tour assistance

3
I still remember the first time I called Asia Experiences for aid. It was noon here in Boston, but I didn't realize that it would be a late night in Nepal. However, their customer case assistance was humble and took no time on my queries to visit this group of nations. I love traveling around the world, and in my many traveling stories there are some negative parts too. However, with the assistance and proper guidance of Asia experiences I could enjoy my trip to the fullest. Mrs. Dipa was very polite and yet professional as I knew I was a handful of curious traveler who wanted a lot. In my short time here I thought I was able to know central Asia better than before with the courtesy of my amazing guides from Asia Experiences. I suggest and approve this agency as one of the best and straightforward companies you will find in Nepal. So better be safe than sorry, with Asia experiences holidays.

Smooth handling of the itinerary

With so many places to see and experience in these countries, I was in doubt that if the company can really catch up to it. You know how people say 'leave it to the professionals' well they did it and in some fashion. We had plenty of time in every destination and we could even extend that over the itinerary time too. The guide was completely experienced and knew when it's time to push. Another thing I admired about Asia Experience and especially Mr. Umesh is that he checked and communicated with us and the guide all over the trip. The guides didn't hesitate to explain me twice when it came to safety and norms of some of the destinations. I will suggest this travel company if you want to experience the countries in their authentic form.
