Nepal, dubbed the rooftop of the world is home to 8 out of 10 of the highest peaks in the world. It homes the birthplace of Gautama Buddha, the founder of the religion of Buddhism. With capital city of the nation, Kathmandu in the foot of the Himalayan mountains, it offers the most amazing and magnificent views of the highest altitudes of the planets.
Bhutan, thought of as the last Shangri-La on the planet, is one destination that provides for an experience like no other. In the name of preserving its rich heritage and culture, the Bhutanese government only allows for limited numbers of tourist access into the nation. This makes travelling to Bhutan an almost exclusive experience. Located in the Himalayas, visitors to Bhutan enjoy front row views of the highest peaks in the world, the Himalayan Mountains.
