Nepal Bhutan Tibet tour is a transnational journey. Although many travelers are fond of this trip, they still have some questions and confusions about this tour because of the lacking information. It is not allowed for foreigners to travel to these three countries alone. Thus, you must book a local travel agency. Your travel agency will help you book the train or air tickets, and provide you the tour guide, accommodation, vehicles, and restaurants. If you decide to travel to Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet, you must apply for some permits in advance.
