The Bhutan Journey - TransIndus

The Bhutan Journey - TransIndus Overview

Bhutan is perhaps the last bastion of Mahayana Buddhism in the Himalaya and retains its age-old traditions and unspoilt culture. Colourful festivals with mask dances liven up the spartan life in its numerous monasteries. Majestic fortresses, called Dzongs, dominate the landscape in several towns.

Comparatively few travellers make it to north Kerala, but those who do invariably return feeling like they’ve struck gold. Boasting miles of exquisite, empty beaches, unseen backwaters and soaring mountains draped in forest and spice plantations, the region is home to a profusion of exotic wildlife, including tigers and huge herds of elephant. It’s also the crucible of Kerala’s distinctive music and dance traditions, and the best place to experience them in their authentic contexts.

In clear weather, Druk Air’s flight to Bhutan provides a wonderful view of Himalayan scenery culminating in an exciting descent past forested hills into the valley of Paro. This comprehensive tour covers all the well- known places including the beautiful valley of Gangtey, famous for the migrant black-necked crane, and an excellent base for walks.
