Bhutan offers a cornucopia of experiences for curious travellers - and this holiday enables you to see the very best of them. With your expert guide, explore the iconic sights in Thimphu, Paro and Punakha, as well as venturing further afield to the more remote valleys of Gangtey and Bumthang for some spectacular hikes.
Nature-lovers will particularly appreciate the beauty of the Gangtey (Phobjikja) valley. In late autumn the endangered Black Necked Crane migrates here from Tibet for the winter, and their glorious arrival is a sight that passionate birdwatchers will not want to miss.
- Immerse yourself in the capital Thimphu with your guide to get a sense of the spirituality and traditions that make this country so unique.
- Join monks in prayer in Gangtey before exploring the exceptionally beautiful surrounding pine forests.
- Discover the lush and expansive Tang Valley in remote Bumthang district. This is home to the oldest and most sacred sites in the country.
- For the finale, hike to the country’s most iconic sight: Tiger’s Nest Monastery.
