Highlights
  • Bhutan is perhaps the most mysterious and diverse of all the himalayan kingdoms, where for centuries a traditional buddhist culture has thrived in isolation from the rest of the world.
  • It is a land of contrast - with lush forested valleys, fortified monasteries, sacred mountains, art and architecture unique to the region.
  • The captial thimphu is charming and serene, a delight to explore.
  • The opportunity to explore the rural lifestyle and architecture of bhutan via the beautiful punakha and haa valleys
  • Visiting taktsang (the tiger's nest) - a small monastery clinging to a rocky cliff 900 metres above the valley floor in paro is truly a highlight.
  • Your 2 night 'feature stay' in paro was envisioned and created by a local bhutanese company, combining traditional elaborate hand-carved wooden cornices, masterful stonework, and modern amenities.
