From the lowlands of the Terai, home to elephants, leopards and rarely seen tigers, to misty mountain heights in the world’s highest range, Nepal and Bhutan offer a dazzling diversity of nature to enchant travelers. Discover it all on this virtual journey hosted by two Expedition Leaders who love guiding our Wild & Ancient Himalaya adventure. Arpita Dutta and Payal Mehta take us through the full itinerary, sharing features of each day, stories from past trips, and aspects of the two countries’ contrasting landscapes, wildlife, food, people and cultures. Find out what it’s like to scout the jungle in search of one-horned rhinos, how you reach the incredible view from Bhutan’s Tiger’s Nest monastery, and so much more. You’ll come away with an understanding of what to expect on this trip, how to prepare for it, and a great sense of anticipation for being part of it!
