Bhutan three Jewels Cultural Tour is an exciting cultural tour, perfect for travellers who have a shorter timeframe. The tour covers Bhutan's three most popular tourist destinations: Thimpu, the capital city; Paro, one of the most fertile valleys in the Kingdom, producing the bulk of the locally famous red rice from its terraced fields; and Punakha.

The landscape is also incredible. Mount Chomolhari (7,314m) reigns in white glory at the northern end of the valley and its glacial water plunge through deep gorges to form Pa Chhu (Paro River). In just 5-days and 4-nights, you will have the chance to observe this natural beauty along with the lifestyles, culture, traditions, arts and history of the Bhutanese people.

Robert's review for another Adventure Thirdpole (P) Ltd tour
“I have been on two wonderful month-long treks with Adventure Thirdpole: Around Annapurna Circuit and Everest Base Camp. Both treks went as well as I could imagine, with no glitches, excellent guides and porters, and every detail anticipated in advance.
The Annapurna Circuit trek is amazing: you start out trekking in rice-growing, subtropical terrain up the Marsyangda river valley, and in a matter of a few days, trek through temperate, cold and subarctic climate zones to the Thurong La pass at almost 18,000'. You then descend via the Kali Gandaki river valley, the deepest river valley in the world. Every day is different with interesting villages, people, religious monasteries and shrines, mountains and wildlife. I have spent almost 4 months in Nepal, and my very favorite place is the "High Route" via Gyaru and Ngawal villages from Pisang to Manang, which offers breathtaking views into the Grande Barriere of the Annapurna massif.
Although roads are beginning to intrude into the classic AC trek, they can be avoided where desired, and utilized where wanted.
The Everest Base Camp trek begins with an interesting and exciting (!) flight into the airport at Lukla, then trekking up to Namche Bazaar, the capital of the Khumbu region, where you spend an extra day acclimatizing before ascending up through arguably the most stunning mountain views in the world! The mountain scenery there is indescribable, breathtaking, and awe-inspiring! Staying at ever-higher villages - Tengboche, Dengboche, and on up in 5-7 days to Gorak Shep at 17,000. A short trip up Kala Patthar offers one of the best possible views of Mt. Everest. Then you do the return trip, again thru the most breathtaking scenery the world has to offer.”

“Amazing friendly experience! Jaya my guide and Bimal my porter just gave me a great trekking experience during 5 days in the Pokhara area. I also then had a great connection to Chitwan. I recommend Thirdpole for any hiking excursion if you wish to have an authentic Nepali friendly experience!”

Ruth's review for another Adventure Thirdpole (P) Ltd tour
“My husband and I went on Poon Hill Trek in April 2017. It was the most memorable, enjoyable trip for me. I felt no stress at all to rush, our guide even encouraged us to trek leisurely. We stopped to listen and watch birds, learnt about plants and trees, took photos of animals like horses, streams and waterfalls along the way. Our home stay was superb. Fresh linen bed linen and towels together with delicious home cooked meals (local and western too!). Host's family made us feel very at home and special. I would use Thirdpole again should I return to do another different trek next time.”
