Bhutan is a Himalayan country of unmatched natural scenery and is home of the mythical thunder dragon. We arrive to Paro on a flight from Kathmandu that passes over some of the most incredible mountain views in the Himalyan region, and land into this magical high Himalayan realm surrounded by snow-clad mountains, highly revered and active Tibetan Buddhist monasteries, and historical dzongs. Its natural grandeur also includes picturesque terraced fields and valleys of wild flowers that has attracted countless visitors from all over the world.

We have carefully crafted this 15-day Bhutan Tour so you have the ultimate opportunity to experience everything that Bhutan has to offer. The tour combines guided explorations to historical and cultural sites of Paro, Thimphu, Punakha, Wangdue Phodrang, Trongsa, Bumthang and Phobjikha.
