Welcome to Bhutan: a capsule Kingdom in which traditions thrive, scenery dazzles and Buddhism is inextricably woven into the fabric of daily life.
This holiday is designed to give you a feel for the country's culture and unique pace. In the capital city of Thimphu, you will explore the markets, monuments and local life. You’ll discover Punakha where you’ll take gentle hikes along terraced paddies and visit the famous Dzong, the breathtaking home of the national treasures. Get a taste of remote village life in the Haa Valley, where you will stay in a charming converted farmhouse and learn about Bhutan's historic links to Tibet. And, of course, no trip to Bhutan would be complete without a trek up to iconic Tiger's Nest monastery.
