Nepal with its capital in Kathmandu lies at the southern foot of the Himalayas, bordered by Tibet to the north and India to the other three sides. Nepal is also known as the “Snow Mountain Kingdom”. There are 8 peaks over 8000 meters above sea level in the Himalayas in northern Nepal. However, in southern Nepal, there’re plains covered by forests and grassland.
Bhutan is a landlocked small country on the southern slope of the eastern section of the Himalayas. It borders Tibet in the north, India in the west, and two other counties in the south and east. Nepal is near to the west of Bhutan. The shortest distance between the two countries is less than 80 kilometers, but they actually are not bordering each other since Sikkim India locates in the middle. Thimphu is the capital of Bhutan. Despite more than half of its territory over an altitude of 3,000 meters, yet Bhutan owns rich and various landforms such as the river valley, the glacier, the mountain, and the forest.
Transportation map between Bhutan and Nepal
Tourists can only take a flight from Kathmandu to Paro. Despite taking less than one hour and accommodating only a few dozen passengers, this flight enables you to get the best views of the Himalayas. Due to small aircraft and short flights, the planes fly at an altitude of about 8000 -10000 meters. And its route is just parallel to the Himalayas. No wonder that the views from this flight are more spectacular than those on the flight from Lhasa to Kathmandu.
