Bhutan Uncovered

per person

Whether you want an adventure or a relaxed holiday, the sheer majesty of Bhutan’s landscapes are a wonder to behold. What’s more, there’s excellent cultural variety, good food, and the Bhutanese people, who form a model of hospitality. A hidden world of traditional richness is found in Bhutan, where old villages perch above dramatic hillocks to mingle with nature without causing any harm to it.

In this secluded realm, little touched by the 21st century, you’ll visit cities, towns and villages following trails along bridges, crystal-clear springs, and ancient chortens, all the while savoring the delectable sounds of beautiful and rare birds, in this side of the Himalayas. Heading to the spectacular medieval monasteries of Paro, our trails lead to airy sanctuaries built atop towering rock pinnacles. One such structure is the Tiger’s Nest, an amazing structure that will leave you awestruck.
