One of the most important parts of our work is always to inform Chörten Travellers as best as possible so that together we can think of what works best for your trip, in each situation, as well as for each one of us. We will update this page as we receive more information that will help us understand the travel situation in these countries.
Our World in Data from Oxford University we think it is a reliable source of information (within the possible availability of information in each country) : https://ourworldindata.org
Magazines, newspapers and universities that use data from Our World Data: Science, Nature, BBC, CNN, Harvard, Stanford, Berkeley, Cambridge, Oxford and MIT.
Along with information from reports from local and international newspapers, conversations with work partners, friends who live in these regions and soon more information that we will have travelling in these countries also help us to understand the situation as a whole, as we think to be our sources of information about travel in our countries.
Domestic tourism in these countries, as in our countries, continues very busy. India is about to open to foreigners more consistently since mid-November. Consulates have already started issuing visas. Cases with the new variant have already started to decline. We are monitoring it very carefully and our forecast is that by mid-March the situation will be much better. THE Nepal, it has been open for trekking groups for a long time and now for tourism in general.
Bhutan e Tibet are still closed. We hope they open soon, possibly in the next few months.
The rules for India and Nepal mainly concern the covid tests, which we need to do just before the trip, and vaccination, to avoid the need for a few days of quarantine. In India, it has been quarantined again with the new variant, which we hope will not be necessary again in the coming weeks.
Since the beginning of vaccination, professionals in the tourism area have been ready to vaccinate themselves in greater proportion than professionals in other areas.
With our experience and knowledge about the functioning and updating of new rules in these countries, the rules change quickly. We will update and bring you more information on this page.
If you want to understand the development of the rules in these countries in more details, we share information mainly from the governments of these countries: here
In this way each one of us can think the best time to travel to these regions according to our care.
