The tiny Kingdom of Bhutan in the eastern Himalaya, has successfully remained isolated from the outside world for many centuries. It is a land of supernatural legends, ancient monastery fortresses and, even today, the Bhutanese people live their lives according to time-honoured cultural traditions and deeply held Buddhist beliefs.
Our Definitive Cultural Tour of Bhutan will take you ‘under the skin’ of Bhutanese society into the interior of the Thunder Dragon kingdom. You’ll have the chance to visit villages, monasteries and any festivals that may be taking place. Or take advantage of Bhutan’s superb accommodation on our stylish Highlights of Bhutan Tour. You can also discover the Kingdom on two wheels on our Cultural Cycling Tour of Bhutan or explore the traditional weaving villages on our Weavers’ Trail.
For those seeking greater adventure, the mountains of Bhutan offer a superlative range of walking and trekking tours with paths that will take you to hidden villages, past crumbling temples, through deep forested valleys and over high mountain passes. For stunning views combined with visits to the key cultural sights our Gentle Walking Bhutan, Gentle Walking Eastern Bhutan or Thunder Dragon Trails in Style holidays won’t disappoint.
If you’re seeking more energetic exertions, Bhutan offers a full range of trekking experiences. The Druk Path Trek makes a superb first Bhutan trekking holiday taking you through magnificent mountain country between Paro and Thimphu. Or, extend a little further, and take the Chorten Path all the way to Punakha, trek into the Hidden Valleys of Bhutan, discover Bhutan’s deep south on our Dagana Wilderness Trek.
For the serious trekker, the high mountains of Bhutan provide a magnificent and rewarding challenge. The base camp at Mount Chomolhari makes a superb first objective, but push on over high passes and you will reach the remote Lingshi Laya area where you’re sure to get a warm welcome. And, if you’re feeling exceedingly adventurous then the Lunana Snowman Trek is undoubtedly the ultimate trekking challenge.
