Mr. Pollard Desmond Laurence and Ms. Childers Beverly Booth from United States of America enjoyed the hospitality of Explore Himalaya from March 21, 2013 to April 1, 2013 during their fun-filled tour to different parts of Bhutan and Nepal.
The elderly guests were very much fun loving and they had the leisurely pleasures during the couple of free days on their own at Kathmandu. Prior to their Bhutan tour our very important visitors were on a sightseeing cultural tour of Kathmandu. Kathmandu itself is a heritage city with plentiful of heritage sites including Boudhanath, Pashupatinath, Swayambhunath and Kathmandu Durbar Square. Apart from these heritage sites every corner of every street in Kathmandu holds ancient temples and shrines which are equally worthwhile for thorough exploration.
On March 23, they flew to Bhutan. Exploring the two Bhutanese cities- Paro and Thimpu jam-packed with cultural edifices including Tiger Nest was one of the best parts of the trip. Bhutan is a small landlocked country with tremendous cultural variety to the rest of the world. Tiger Nest situated at a high cliff 900m above Paro is a five hours walk.
Upon returning from Paro, they headed to Chitwan National Park. A park which is perfect blends of modernity outside the premises whereas extreme wilderness prevails inside the premises. They enjoyed the wildlife activities during wildlife safari at Chitwan.
Finally after all these glorious cultural and wildlife activities the Americans departed back home on April 1, 2013.
We work with the motto "Tourism for Development". Explore Himalaya Community Service Project was conceived to empower underprivileged segments of Nepal.
