Accommodation in Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan, and India Tour

During our 26 days Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan, and India Tour, we will be staying in a 3-star hotel. You have to share the twin room with another touring partner because it is awfully hard to find a room in a hotel during peak season in these countries. However, if you want a single room, then you can tell us and we will manage it for you at an additional cost.

Be it a single or twin room, it will be wonderfully comfortable for you to spend a night. Every room is clean and well-equipped with needed materials. Also, there are facilities of air conditioner, shower, and attached bathroom. You will get a warm blanket and pillow.

If you want to stay in a 5-star hotel rather than a 3-star hotel, then we can make changes in your itinerary. You can enjoy the luxurious facilities, if they are available, just by paying a little extra. Just tell us and we will give you everything as per your demand.
