Bhutan Festival Tour is all about getting involved in festivals that Bhutanese people celebrate. This particular tour can be organized at any time of the year as these people celebrate various kinds of festivals throughout the year. If you are impressed by the cultural and geographical diversities of the country, you might want to go for this trip. Bhutanese festivals reflect a unique kind of cultures and traditions that have been followed and preserved throughout generations.
Festivals such as Tsechus take place in the country once in a year. This festival is among the most celebrated ones. Tsechus is celebrated to praise the great deeds of a Buddhist saint Padmasambhava [popularly known as Guru Rinpoche]. The name of the festival denotes those deeds that happened on the 10th day of the month.
Similarly, The Bhutan [Thimpu] festival is very popular festival in the country. Millions of people get together in order to get involved in dances and prayers that last for four days. In this auspicious occasion, people get neatly dressed garnished with beautiful jewelleries of coral and turquoise. People pack their foods in their traditional basket made up of bamboo and stay volatile all day long.

I would say this for sure is one of the most beautiful experience I've ever had. Bishnu is such a nice, sweet and well organized person. As a solo female traveler, it's quite a bit nasty to made such decision to trek during the raining season especially after massive earthquake. Luckily I stayed at a nice and decent hotel where I almost could made myself at home, and the building, the places and all the stuff I worried about really didn't effected by the earthquake. Thanks again Bishnu for all of your effort, and hopefully I could go ABC next year or 2017. I'll see you then!
Mr Bishnu Pokhrel from Gold Mountain Nepal Treks organized for me a very nice trek around the Sagarmatha National Park on September 2014.
I spent 17 days in the Khumbu region with a guide and full lodge accommodation. my itinerary was defined by me and the company provided an English Speaking local guide. We went from Lukla to Gokyo Ri, crossed the Cho La Pass in deep Winter conditions, continued the trekking up to Khumbu Glacier and Kala Pathar and finally discovered a precious glacier valley in the East of Sagarmatha, the Imja Kosi, until Chukkung and the Imja Tsé (Island Peak) base camp, where the organization set a campsite with tents and kitchen for the climbing of this 6000 m trekking peak.
All food and lodges perfectly matched my expectations.
Gold Mountain Nepal also provided me the needed technical gear for climbing the Island Peak, including an experienced climbing guide, plastic boots and high altitude sleeping bag.
Tim's card for trekking in the National Park, SPCC Climbing permit for Imja Tsé and the plane tickets from Katmandú to Lukla (round trip) were also issued by the company.
Gold Mountain Nepal Treks also picked me at the international Airport, booked from me hotel in the city and organized a sightseeing tour with personal guide around Kathmandu before my trek and a farewell dinner before my return.
I really appreciate the work done by Gold Mountain Nepal Treks and I recommend you to book your trek to them. They are responsible and efficient, and have very good prices too.
We went for a family holiday trip to Nepal, Gold Mountain Nepal Treks & Expedition made us preparations for our trip and we had a very enjoyable holiday in Nepal. We were satisfied by all means. We stayed in many places like Kathmandu,Phokara and Chitwan. The hotels which have arranged for us were really best and the cost also effective. The vehicle which was given to us during the tour was also perfect. Thanks for making an unforgettable family holiday. Thanks to Bishnu and team of Gold Mountain Nepal Treks & Expedition. Hope we’ll do visit Nepal more regularly through Gold Mountain Nepal Treks & Expedition.
