Tucked in the high eastern Himalaya lie Tibet, Nepal, and Bhutan. Explorers like Csoma de Koros, Sven Hedin, and George Mallory each managed to land in one of these far-off places, but none could claim all three. This unusual journey offers the chance to do just that—with a level of style and comfort completely foreign to those early adventurers. With expert guides to lead us, we revel in Lhasa's ancient holy sites, marvel at medieval and modern treasures of the Kathmandu Valley, and hike to fabled temples and visit artisans in Bhutanfeeling a bit like hero-explorers ourselves.

ITINERARY


Geographic Expeditions is a top-notch travel company. I have traveled with them four times, and each trip was most memorable... My last trip was a group trip to Tibet, Bhutan, and Nepal (Himalayan Kingdoms), and then I continued on a private excursion to Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand—36 days total. It was a fabulous trip.
