Heart of Bhutan Tour

4 Nights / 5 Days

Heart of Bhutan Tour

per person

In Bhutan, sprawling meadows of green hold gigantic fortresses called Dzongs, ornate temples, and prayers flags of a great civilization whose significance can only be grasped when one in on a quest for tranquility. This journey will take us into a world of historical vastness, prayer chants and music drifting down tranquil rivers, and ornate royal cities. Our exploration of Paro, Thimphu and Punakha brings us into a sphere of stunning beauty and vibrant culture.

We get a glimpse of Bhutan’s daily life as we meet a mosaic of intriguing people in their villages, towns, and monasteries, and discover irresistible settings like Zangdopelri in the heart of Thimphu, Bhutan’s iconic capital. Our holiday abounds with visual delights, from the bustling Thimphu to sunset over the fertile valley of Punakha. But it’s your encounters with its graceful and deeply spiritual people of Bhutan that linger in your minds long after the journey’s end.
