This tour visits the main valleys of western Bhutan, travelling over mountain passes that offer stupendous views. There is no trekking, but we explore the towns on foot and also enjoy some gentle village walks. We meet villagers and weavers in their own homes, and travel right into Bhutan’s interior, visiting the remote and isolated Phobjika valley. Centuries of isolation have left the Kingdom of the Thunder Dragon a unique place. The architecture is unlike anything else found in the Himalaya – houses are painted with magic symbols to keep out evil spirits, national dress is commonly worn and the “Dragon” sect of Buddhism thrives. We explore all aspects of Bhutanese culture on this captivating tour, during which you will stay in comfortable hotels.
We explore all aspects of Bhutanese culture on this captivating tour including the unforgettable experience of attending a Bhutanese festival on all departures. For the itineraries of each of these celebrations, please see our website.
