Nepal and Bhutan

18 days from £6,200 per person

This awe-inspiring itinerary crosses the mighty Himalayas to visit the ancient kingdoms of Bhutan and Nepal - two of the most beautiful areas on earth. Fly to Nepal, where you visit some of the major UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Kathmandu Valley - the spectacular capital cities of bygone rulers - before continuing to Chitwan National Park, home to an enormous variety of flora and fauna, including the majestic tiger. You will return to Kathmandu for one night before flying to Paro.

In Bhutan, you will gain an insight into its profound history and culture, both heavily influenced by Buddhism. You will witness the dramatic scenery on the journey between the capital Thimphu and the smaller and more rural towns and valleys in the centre of the country. Finish your journey with two nights in Calcutta, cradle of the British Raj, where you may explore contemporary life as well as its rich history.

My favourite thing is to go where I've never been.

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
